Unsure about UnSync ,

...but, “Mirroring” information in two places

I’ve enjoyed XMind for quite some time. Developers are very committed to smooth experience. This is apparent in bugs, assuming they exist, being made transparent.

One suggestion from my side, depending on the roadmap, that will help to keep competitive. Moving away from rigid top down structures (not how we think), apps are trying to find UXs that represent many-to-many bottom-up lookups on the back end.

Some do this miserably with “tag only” systems that delude into piles of information. Others are trying to put the user closer to the database with wikis and record linking features. There is somewhere in the middle, and I think Workflowy just got close.

They’ve implemented what are called “mirrors”, where an instance of information in one bullet can be copied to another bullet half way across the list. The interesting thing is, they’re linked, meaning a change happens in one place reflects in another.

Anyone working with DBMSs knows this is pretty simple on the backend. However, this paradigm shift from folder systems isn’t so simple to the consumer. Mirroring is an analogy that makes sense, is simple, yet very powerful. Unfortunately for Workflowy, despite mastering the list UX, don’t have the mind map.

I’d encourage XMind to find an analogy that makes sense to the consumer to “reflect” the same information’s updates in two different places on a mind map.

Missing Key Feature all other Mind Map programs have

I suggested a simple solution several times and they always replied that they would considerate and add in a future upgrade. However nothing has been done in over 9 months and they are forcing me away from XMind to competitive mind mapping which all them seem to have numbers 0 to 9, so when you want a to number branches of past 7, you can. With 0 to 9 you can add Infinite numbers. XMind stopped at 7 and only have 1-7 why? It is the easy programming fix add 0,8,9 only 3 additional markers so we, the end users can number priority's beyond 7 I send screen shots from a competitive mind map that I seem to Gravitate to because of the numbering. Unless this is fixed I will be forced to cancel my subscription and stay with competing mindmapping and nowadays there ar plenty good ones. Just type in mind-mapping in the apple store. Unhappy disappointed customer

Why can’t you start with a blank mind map with just a central Topic as a starting point? You have to pick from template then delete or fill in.

It’s odd that’s support does not respond or address any of these reviews with comments or reply

The Gold standard of mind mapping

In my opinion XMind is the best mind mapping and brainstorming app I have ever encountered. My hobby for many years has been to try out apps on my Apple devices like my McBook, iMac, iPad Pro and iPhone and carefully take the time to check them out for features and also shortcomings. App Developers work extremely hard to create apps and I have immeasurable respect for them. However, very very few apps ever survive my critical analysis. I look for advanced abilities the app can perform well, stability in avoiding crashes, ease of using the app, a good support and knowledge base help in learning the app among other criteria. So far in my use of this XMind app it is nothing less than amazing in its features and abilities. This review is my opinion. I recommend it to other Users.
