Used this package for years, had the windows version on my old PC. The functions are great and its easy to use, enables you to get ideas down. the reason for the low rating is that on the Mac version verything is slightly fuzzy including the text which is very distracting.

Brilliant app but continually crashing

This is a fabulous app and is highly intuitive and easy to use
Lots of crisp graphics and makes mind mapping easy
EXCEPT: It crashes all the time! This problem is not acceptable and creates frustration and duplication of work.
I will write a better review when I see an improvement

I love this software, but it crashes the whole time so I often lose half my mind map.
