  • Excellent for both iPhone & MS Surface

    By Shanks316
    I bought the app for my iPhone but wanted the ability to share back and forth to my Surface. Interface is seamless. Definitely upgrade to the paid version. The unlocked features are worth it even if you only use it for one big project!
  • THE BEST! 💥

    By LBLOFT1
    I first tried the lite version, and once I started I couldn’t stop...I made many maps and feel like many things in my life were made clearer. So I upgraded to the PLUS version and is well worth it. With all the ADD going on in the world, this can be soooo perfect for children and adults alike... i am over 50. 😁

  • Good Product, But I am Confused...

    By FedMed
    So, I have purchased the full version here, but I am seeing another app by the same developer with the same name for $7.99 and another app (Legacy) which looks identical. Are these all the same app?
  • Best. App. Ever.

    I’ve been looking for ways to help with studying, and wish I found this sooner. Downloaded the free trial on my iPhone and was sold before it even ended. Maybe it’s the OCD nerd in me, but my thoughts and notes have to be organized JUST the right way or I can’t function. I’ve tried tabs, highlighters, binders, note cards, quizlets, you name it... nothing did the job until I found this app. There are soo many features that give you the freedom to organize the clutter in your head; it’s like painting your thoughts onto a screen. I haven’t tried any other mind mapping apps since this is my first one, but I feel like it has everything I need already and don’t even want to venture. I’m pretty satisfied. I now have the paid versions for my iPhone/Ipad and windows pc too. LOVE this app! BTW: definitely read the MindMap Editor Help, and FAQ sections so you can truly enjoy the creative power of the app.
  • Helped me deal with the problems of Epilepsy and Medicine

    By Fred & Lisa
    Bc of all the seizures I deal with and the problems that come along with the medication I take I have plenty of difficulty with thinking and problem solving. Plenty Of Difficulty. This was much needed. I suggest it to anyone who needs to make thinking, note taking, remembering, and problem solving easier.
  • Excellent app

    This app has terrific features and provides a wonderful way to jot down my thoughts and prayers. I love it!
  • Forced Central Topic

    By xmikeylikesitx
    The app runs moderately well, but the forced central topic removes the freedom a mind map should offer. Edit 6/9/18: the “Free Form” layout DOES NOT remove the forced central topic. You still only have ONE main topic. It does NOT allow for circular diagrams.
  • Awesome mind mapping app 🎖🎖🎖🎖🎖

    By GadgetMojo
    I watched some YouTube videos on such apps as I like the concept of mind mapping and decided to give this one a shot as it seemed most intuitive. Mind mapping is actually a very simple concept. It’s just flow changing. But without an app you just can’t do it on a piece of paper. Because you need to be able to keep adding and making room for new units. Move units to another sub group because you realize that they’re part of something greater conceptually. The app has a bunch of other features that I haven’t used, but seems like I might later... Where the app shines is, taking this concept of “flow charting” and making it intuitive... very intuitive! Now I don’t know why people would use a desktop version, I guess for corporate reasons or if they don’t have an iPad, but mind mapping is best on the touch screen device. This is one of those things that must be done perfectly. I wouldn’t accept “almost” for this sort of application and would just try another. But I got lucky on the 1st try. (Well not really, I cheated by watching videos on all top app in this cat) What was I looking for? It doesn’t work like that. You pick an app and start using it. If you feel you have to fight the UI - just pick another app. The UI of this app is simple and intuitive and you’ll figure out everything in less time than it took me to write this review (I’m slow lol) Everything just makes sense and works the way you would guess it should work. Power hint: press and hold the node to move all the branches attached to it. Ah, you’ll figure it all out yourself easily enough ;) Do you feel overwhelmed with thoughts about something? Does it feel like the concept or task is too complex? I used to put it on paper, or rather bunches of papers to remedy that... but I finally decided to dedicate some time to this mind mapping technique... all 10-15 minutes that is! Thanks devs! Wrote this review only after a day of using the app, will paste it on the full version so you get more exposure ;) EDIT: After using the app for couple of days, there’s only one feature request that I have which would make the app even more perfect! Please add a slider to the settings to adjust the tap’n’hold delay. It’s too slow now (2 seconds). To move things around quickly it just slows you down. Not sure what the perfect setting would be, and I’m sure different for each person, but a slider with a range from .5 to 2 seconds would fit everyone’s preference. Thanks!!
