Fabuleux !

Je n’ai pas testé plus de 3 applications avant d’être plus qu’heureux de celle-ci. Elle m’apporte exactement tout ce que je cherche de la part d’un Mind Mapping. Simple, intuitive, super complète très puissante, stable et robuste. Aussi bien sur Mac que sur iPad et iPhone. La synchro iCloud entre appareils est d’une efficacité et d’une rapidité époustouflante, même avec des fichiers très importants.

Highly flexible, smart and intuitive

A veteran in mindmapping, used in setting up A3 to A0 mindmaps and live wall-to-wall action plans and value stream maps, I now concentrate on iThoughts for all my workshops and strategic plans.

Paper is great. But when you create a new model and work on innovative material, you need total flexibility and speed. Reorganizing, changing the structure, modifying key items shouldn’t be restricted. You need iThoughts.

Other apps are ok but either they have a traditional and conservative communication approach or they are heavy and full with useless bells and whistles. Other ones are memory-hungry or instable.

iThoughts is direct, simple, reliable, unpretentious but extremely powerful.

Support is perfect.

The absolute best combination of mapping,scheduling,linking,...

This app is the best combination of mindmapping,project management,task scheduling,creative idea mapping and just fun found on this platform.
Add to tgis the great user interface, the intuitive and beautiful design and the stability and you got abdream of a productivity tool.
Every new release brings relevant new additions that I wished for after using the current version for some time.
It is as if they build new features almost before i can ask for them.
Thanks and keep up the good work!
