Ratings and Reviews
I think I will like this app
This is my very first review. I just spent 2 hours searching for an alternative app to draw mind maps because the one that I used is now charging a super high subscription fee.
I guess the developer sacrifice efficiency for flexibility. You can organize the map in any way you want. Therefore, the cards are not automatically aligned, and you cannot create a sibling card by just press return which is a feature of other mind mapping apps. I think I can live with this small shortcoming for now.
I do hope that a desktop version can be developed. I am not used to do extensive work on iPad.
Promising Tinderbox Alternative
For those of you familiar with the cult favorite Tinderbox app on the Mac, this application comes the closest I’ve seen to replicating Tinderbox’s map experience.
It’s not there yet — long form text can’t yet be associated with the nodes on the map. There’s no tagging outside of color. No nesting of nodes. But, it has a super simple, clean, mapping UI.
Keep an eye on this one.
Becoming one of the better canvas+pencil apps
This app is constantly improving, and is already one of the more interesting and useful canvas applications.
Mind maps, diagrams, common thought templates, there are a lot of tools here.
The monthly price is fair for cross-device sync (which must surely be challenging to program).
There are some bugs with screen rotation, and with overlays at the top of the screen (on both iPad and iPhone). But this app will likely become one of the top pencil productivity choices in 2019.
Developer Response ,
Hi, Thank you for your constructive feedback. We have fixed a bug of screen rotation at version 1.8.1. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. We look forward to your continued support.
