WriteMapper was built to leverage the visual nature of mind maps to give you a bird's-eye view of your writing structure. Just one glance is all it takes for you to get a good feel for the flow of your work.

In doing so, you get a comprehensive yet clear picture of what's going on in your content. And, if you need to rearrange your writing sequences or move stuff around, it's as simple as drag and drop.


Ever write down the title, and then face a mental struggle with the rest of the blank page? WriteMapper helps you overcome writer's block by turning your writing process into a brainstorming exercise.

This allows you to rapidly and relentlessly generate ideas and points for your writing. Just spend a couple minutes on this quick-fire process, and before you know it, you'll have a fully-formed content structure all ready to go!


Each node on the mind map has a content section you can jump in to edit at anytime. Besides being able to style and format your writing however you like, you can also edit the title of this sub-point from this view as well.

The distraction-free writing mode helps you shift gears from the all-aspects-considered nature of the mind map outline, to the focused task of detailing the contents of the individual sub-point you're zoomed in on.


WriteMapper uses the nested structure of a mind map to automatically create and export a text document for you, right in your computer's file system. You can choose from a variety of file formats, including Markdown, HTML, Microsoft Word, plain text and Rich Text Format.

You can then edit the exported document in your text editing app of choice, to give that final draft the polish it needs to bring it to completion. With this supercharged content generation workflow, you'll get your writing done in no time at all!


"WriteMapper is an invaluable tool for those who write for a living." — Mihir Patkar, MakeUseOf

"It has the perfect balance of elegance and features, and the text-editor itself is killer." — Charlie Sorrel, Cult of Mac

"WriteMapper is such a powerful tool. This workflow is so logical and intuitive." — Michael Levy


WriteMapper was reworked from the ground up to be deeply integrated with and optimised for an incredible experience on your iPhone. Here’s a couple of features and capabilities which we’ve leveraged from the power of iOS, the world’s most advanced mobile operating system, to help you do your best work:

1. Dark Mode
On iOS 13, dark mode in the app will now sync with the dark mode setting on your device, directly adapting to whatever theme you're currently using.

2. Haptic Touch
Use of the Taptic Engine on your device allows WriteMapper to now also deliver haptic feedback upon interaction with elements in the app.

3. Pure Black Theme
For iPhones with OLED displays, you can now choose to use a Pure Black dark mode theme instead, which gives a visually stunning effect.

4. Files
With the help of the new Files app, you can easily save, sync and access your WriteMaps (.writemap files) across devices.

5. Drag and Drop
Rearrange the nodes in your WriteMap by dragging them around, the experience of which is now also accentuated by Taptic Engine feedback.


Get WriteMapper for your Mac or Windows desktop computer to experience the full power of working on your .writemap files across your devices (sold separately), accessing your WriteMaps using your preferred cloud syncing service.

For $9 I’d buy this if

It were possible to import/copypaste markdown text that this app could immediately render as a mindmap.

That’s where this could shine.

A good number of people globally write their notes in markdown and this app could allow people to quickly visualize their notes better. It’s not bad using the app itself to make nodes of course; but for a lot of pre-existing content and information it could work very well of it did perform that way.

Developer Response ,

Hi Bran, thank you for your feedback on our pricing of continued use of the app beyond the offered free trial. First off, we appreciate you taking the time to write and share your thoughts with us.

It’s undoubtedly true that billion-dollar companies have created the trend of releasing free apps, and other companies even resorting to violating your privacy by selling your data that you input into such apps to make money, creating an environment where consumers like yourself have (understandably) come to expect apps to come for cheap, or even free.

This environment has also somewhat been a large driver behind why apps such as games built to be time-wasting, addictive money spinners are doing so well in app stores, with developers heavily incentivized to make such apps due to the nature of the size and profitability of those markets.

There unfortunately isn’t a billion or even million-dollar company behind WriteMapper, nor do we do things like sell your data to make money. We’ve priced the app with the sustainability of the app in mind, allowing to update, maintain and improve the app over time. We thank all paying customers of ours for supporting us and helping us keep the app going.

We also made sure to intentionally price the app as a one-time purchase, as opposed to a recurring subscription fee, which you might have been observing to have been becoming more and more commonplace nowadays - in the knowledge that one-time purchases are vastly preferred by consumers instead of a recurring cost.

In any case, thank you for taking time to check out the app and once again for leaving your feedback. We hope this response has been helpful, and best wishes for the year ahead. :)

Barely even got to try it.

Developer Response ,

Hi Codi - thank you for your feedback on the week-long trial period being too short for adequate evaluation of the app’s capabilities. We will definitely be considering updating that to a longer trial period in a future release of the app. Take care and have a great 2020 ahead. :)

You can’t do anything without paying for it

Okay. You can do one thing. You can type in one box.
