We brought two pointer gestures from the Mac to iPad:
• Hold the Option key (⌥) to turn the node well into a folding indicator to quickly fold nodes.
• Hold the Option key (⌥) and click on the canvas to create a new main node.
IMPROVED VISUAL TAGS
Highlighting a tag now also indicates nodes that are folded.
• Fixed a bug where new nodes could not be created after cancelling dragging
• Fixed a crash caused by dragging and dropping text lists onto the canvas
• Fixed a crash when entering tag highlighting in an upcoming iOS update
• Fixed an issue which made branches look tangled after pasting
• Fixed an issue where straight branches in an embedded, top-down layout had an unnecessary curve
Ratings and ReviewsSee All
Articulating a complex idea can be a challenge, but fortunately MindNode—which simplifies a technique known as mind mapping—can make the process a whole lot easier. The app lets you create a diagram where an overarching idea branches off into related ones. You’ll be able to zero in on specifics and zoom out to see the entire concept in all its complexity.
A great program but Be careful if you use this with iCloud
I have been using this program since it was first introduced. Until now I have used it for every condition where I needed to relate unrelated things. As promised, I am rewriting my review since the app support people discovered that my problems are not caused by this app. I had begun using iCloud with all my MindNode documents. One document, in particular, I updated daily and frequently updated from different devices. My problem occurred because iCloud did not handle my more complex documents property. Worse than wrecking my document, iCloud is set up to delete any documents that iCloud does not control. So if I turn off iCloud from holding and updating my MindNode documents I cannot recover them to my local device (iPad or iPhone). There are tricks I could play to keep or recover a single document, but I have over 30 MindNode documents so that is impractical.
The MindNode support staff were extremely helpful and emailed me with questions until they narrowed the problem to iCloud. From there they had no suggestions except to not keep my documents in the cloud. I will continue to use MindNode if or when I can get my documents back, but I won’t create new documents or update existing ones until iCloud is out of the picture.
Solved my iCloud issue by emailing my MindNode documents to myself. Then turned iCloud off.

Again, very sorry we couldn't be of more help! Hope you have lovely holidays! Regards,
I was so glad to have found this app! It helps me a lot when I write papers, but it helped me the most with my PhD thesis. Only after making a mind map was I able to visualize all the chapters that I needed and how to put them in order. Also it’s so easy to have everything reviewed - I just bring my tablet and I “drag and drop” or add new bubble.
The only thing that I wish was possible is branch length adjustment and better (manual) position adjustment or control over the position where I wanna move the whole branch with side branches - especially when I need to move around bigger branch. This would help a lot when printing a big map - it would be possible to use the the surface of the paper better.
Otherwise great app and I would recommend it to others! Also, kudos for trial period - you can really see in two weeks if you’re gonna use this app or not, so you don’t waste money.
