Customer Reviews

Excellent app...and no user guide was needed!

I just installed this app today, and have already made two mind maps without any difficulty. It is a very intuitive, and simple to use app. Best of all…the thing is totally UNCLUTTERED with a bunch of confusing choices. Although I used some of the drop-down menus, this was mainly because I was curious to learn what my options were. Doing so was not necessary to ending up with a good-looking mind map. The vast majority of my work was accomplished simply by paying attention to the on-screen symbols and using common sense…i.e. point & click, drag & drop, fill in the blanks, etc. I heartily recommend this app to anyone wishing to brainstorm ideas and get organized!

Desperately needs smoother scrolling

This is a wonderful app for those who want to make basic mind maps in a very clean interface. It’s also excellent for those who want this software in both OS X and iOS.

My one request: please make the scrolling for the OS X version as smooth as it is in the iOS version. It can be quite distracting. My 3 stars will very quickly turn into 5 stars if this is fixed.

Too basic for $20

Other reviewers are right: there’s not enough customization available for $20.
