Description

Free sale! Organize bits of info VISUALLY instead of using lists. TOGGLE your labeled “magnets” on/off with a tap. MOVE them, ARRANGE them, give them COLORS and SHAPES. It’s simple and fun!

Mind Magnets is like a little “bulletin board” you can fill with mini-notes about anything you want. Your magnets always snap into place in tidy grid rows. Each magnet has three states: TAP it on/off, or DOUBLE-TAP for “maybe” with a question mark badge.
_______________

WHY IS A GRID BETTER THAN A LIST?

• Lists lack organization. But Mind Magnets can be moved around and grouped any way you like, with 10 shapes and 40 colors.

• No scrolling: see 45 items at once on an iPhone, or 108 on an iPad, or 300 on the 12.9-inch iPad Pro.

• Quick and easy: color, shape and position help you remember where each item is at a glance.
_______________

Use Mind Magnets as a visual shopping list, to-do list, trip packing list, task organizer, habit tracker, or a way to track any small bits of info—from game scores and character sheets, to event RSVPs, to brainstorming and planning, to exercise routines.

TIPS AND TRICKS:

• Finished with an item for now? Tap to “check it off” and it will turn dark until you need it again.

• Want a label with no shape around it? Just choose the black color.

• Export a screenshot by clicking the Home and Sleep buttons at the same time.

LIMITATIONS: This app does not support emoji, Voiceover mode, or cloud sync. Magnets are quite small on 10.5" iPads—but on the bright side, this lets you fit the same 300 magnets as the largest iPads!

What's New

Version 2.1.0

• Smoother motions and transitions, especially when dragging one magnet and others are “flowing” around it.

• New system for conserving power: the app now intelligently varies between three levels of power consumption.

• Minor UI tweaks.

• After changing a shape or color, the keyboard re-appears automatically after a short delay, saving a tap. (For people who like to set up shapes and colors first and add labels afterward, this should simplify the process.)

• Groundwork laid for bigger changes. (Stay tuned!)

AND IF YOU MISSED IT FROM VERSION 2.0: you can DOUBLE-TAP ANY MAGNET for a “?” state, neither On nor Off. (Plus there are new shapes and colors.)

I am working on other new features, guided by your helpful messages (while being careful not to lose the app’s simplicity). Need more space? So do I!

I can be reached at adamsimmersive.com. Thanks for letting me know how you use Mind Magnets, and how it could work better for you!

Simple, fast and useful

I love these small, colourful, memory buttons! They are fun to use and perfect for quick lists and reminders. Many thanks to the developer for the new "?" feature! Well done!!!

Great Visual Organizer

Would love to have the ability to have multiple boards. Well done.

Developer Response

Thanks! I'm working on a possible solution that offers a large scrolling workspace, with the ability to treat that workspace as a set of separate "boards" or "screens" for those who wish.

Simple and striking list app for visual learners

kitttycollins

This app was confusing to use at first--the demo was unhelpful without accompanying text but after some trial and error making a list is visually striking and uncomplicated. I use this as a to do list and shopping list in tandem. Not only does it help to have several items laid out on one page, the colour-coding and shape-coding feature is incredible! It helps to compartmentalize which items I need to buy and which I need to do. Not to mention, checking off each item is easy and obvious as each circle "uncolours" upon completion. You can also move items around to literally any space on your screen. Referring to this list takes seconds to interpret.

Some suggestions: add a + feature where we can create a few more pages of lists, make the demo clearer (I sat for a good 5 minutes watching the hand click on separate areas of the screen thinking it was an instruction video), and provide an option for a lighter background colour.
