Quite Good, But Needs Work
Let's start with the good: If you're looking for a mind-map app, I wouldn't hesitate in recommending you start with this one. Not only is it free, it's better than many of the paid apps. Yes, there is an in-app purchase option, but it looks like the app is totally free and unlocked unless you want to save more than three mind-maps, in which case, you'd buy the in-app purchase. That's totally fair. In fact, I think it's a great system.
Also - this app works quite well on both the iPhone and iPad.
Overall, this app is quite good, but the interface needs a bit of refinement. For example, if you click the settings icon, a menu pops up. The only way to close that menu is to click the settings icon again. Usually, in most apps, clicking outside of the menu will close it.
The show/hide ignores its previous status and always opens as "show" when the app is launched. And the black background (seen when fully zoomed out) doesn't match the white background of the mind-map.
Also, the look of the bubbles could use a bit of professional polish. It looks like it's a child's app, but really, it's quite powerful.
Like I said... the app needs work. And yet, I'm rating it 4 stars because despite its flaws, this is a well done and powerful app.
I really hope the developer works on refining the UI. This could easily be a five star app.
Color now broken
I love this app, but the recent update has broken the color functionality. Custom colors are no longer added to the "in this mind map" section, and do not "stick" within the mind map itself--the colors revert to standard shades or something else, which is not at all helpful when the color is used for something meaningful in the visualization. Please fix this so that it functions the way that it did in the previous version!! I'm also having difficulty moving the bubbles around on my newly-created mind maps, so I'm wondering if there may be a bug there also...
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
