Saved My Life!!!

This program has saved my life. I have been sitting for hours trying to organize my projects to such extent that my wife has found me at the kitchen table, glassy-eyes, staring into nothingness, notepads and paper strewn about me. Then she said: “maybe there’s an app for that,” reminding me of why I married her. Sure enough, I stumbled across this life-altering program and it has simply saved my life. No need to read instructions, it is completely intuitive. I played with it for exactly 5 minutes and knew exactly how everything worked. It is now 12:42 AM and I love this app so much I felt compelled to stay up and write this review. For anyone who is having difficulty organizing projects of any kind, this application is the best thing in the world. Fpr me, the best part is for each topic, or “block” on the branch, you can write notes on what is needed. This is a complete visual view of your projects, organized in the way that fits you and your needs. Whoever made this program thank you so much.

Love It, Love It, Love It!

I've been using the iOS version since 2018. I tried the non-pro version and It was useable, but too limited. I finally decided to get the desktop version.

I'm so glad I did!

It has a much larger space to work with, much more visible than the phone version. The slideshow feature is a really great tool that is not available on my phone.

I really love being able to sync the maps. It took me a few minutes to figure it out. The desktop version creates a whole new folder for syncing even if I link to an existing folder. It created the new folder inside my old one. So for everything to sync, i just moved my previous maps to the new folder and all was well. Now my iPhone, iPad, and laptop all have access to my creations.

Mind mapping in general, this is the best software I have found. I've used many different versions, but alway came back to this version. I’ve exported the SimpleMind maps to other mind map software with flat, uninspiring results. Ease of use, color coding and customizability are all just better. Plus, SimpleMind has many more features. The brainstorm feature is super helpful to someone like me who has rapid-fire thoughts.

Last thing, my iPad is ooooollllld, as in iOS 10 old, the newly created maps are completely compatible with the old version of SimpleMind Pro.

Best of the Best

I have been hopeful about mind-mapping as a strategy to organize the many different kinds of thoughts worth keeping that flit through my head in a day, and I have tried many different mind mapping programs before Simple Mind. Simple Mind is the one!! It is incredibly powerful in it’s ability to customize everything. It does all of the things I want it to do, and I am finding it a great tool not only to organize my life, but also research, and I used it for a recent presentation, which was well recieved. I love that it works on my Mac desktop, IOS phone, and Chromebook seamlessly. I love that you pay once, rather than a monthly subscription. The updates always come with helpful information for learning about the changes. I am ready to marry Simple Mind until death do us part. Can’t say enough good about it, and I have tried MANY programs made for a similar purpose.
