Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
Developer Response ,
Hello, Thank you for your valuable feedback. We are pleased to announce the release of the Mac version of ThinkSpace. Please try it from the Mac App Store. We will continue to improve ThinkSpace. Thank you for your support.
Desktop laggnig behind iOS version
I have been using the iOS version of Thinkspace on my iPad for a while and love it. It fills the mind-mapping app niche in a way that no other app does, so I was pleasantly suprised to see the macOS version in the App Store.
The macOS 1.0.0 version seems to be a direct port of the iOS app, and the differences in the desktop versus mobile UIs are apparent. For example, zooming in and out on iOS is a simple pinch gesture that relies on the iOS touch interface. I have not found a way to zoom on the macOS version, since I do not have a multi-touch HID device such as a trackpad on my iMac. I hope to see a mouse/keyboard/menu-based way to zoom in the next update.
Developer Response ,
