By IdeasOnCanvas GmbH

MindNode makes mind mapping delightful. Mind maps are a visual representation of your ideas, starting with a central thought and growing from there. MindNode allows you to brainstorm, organize & share your thoughts in an intuitive way, so you can focus on the idea behind it. The clean interface lets you concentrate on generating and connecting thoughts, and an infinitely expanding canvas means that no matter how big or complicated your project gets, MindNode can keep up.

MindNode has helped students, artists and project managers to be more creative with less effort.

Great Study Tool

Great way to organize my thoughts in a new way. I really like having options for multiple main nodes as well as customizable connections. A nice touch as well is the ability to add extra yet hidden notes to any item meaning you can have a simple outline but still keep all the detail. Seems a little pricey at first, especially when you consider having to pay separately for the OS X version, but I am happy to support the good work this team has done and MindNode has become an invaluable study tool for me.


An update to this review... The MindNode support team has been super helpful and responsive whenever I've encountered an issue (usually user error on my part!) and I commend them for their quick and helpful replies! This is uncommon trait is greatly appreciated!

I've also found that adding images and icons, though not super intuitive at first, has been extremely useful, and yes, you CAN resize them - just pull the right dot that appears on the image to change its size, then double tap the left dot to size the text box appropriately (this should make sense when you do it!). In the future, I could see the option to export my maps in outline format to be extremely useful but as of yet the RTF and plain text options are just slightly lacking in functionality and would love to see how this could be further developed.

Outstanding Versatile App

I have purchased many apps over the years but this by far is one of the best. In addition to using it for brainstorming, I also use it for presentations, note taking and more. The sync is perfect. The iCloud versions feature (which lets you roll back to an earlier save) is fantastic and I wish it was offered by more apps. Well worth the purchase. Really excellent.

Amazing! Surprisingly Astounded.

Thought it was a useless app at first and then used it for the first time and fell in love with it. It organizes and cleared up messy notes that are done one paper. Also really simple to use and easy to customize. The keyboard short cuts are really convenient to use. I have a new wonderful notes app. Definitely worth the money (if possible get if free from Starbucks app)
