Ratings and Reviews
Great app when coupled with desktop version, just ok by itself
Suffers from a lack of printing, and I've seen better as a mind mapping app but it's real strength is as an adjunct to the desktop version. If they add printing I would add a star
No nonsence mapping - MindGenius is Brilliant
So simple to use, so quick to create maps when customer facing, this is a great extension to the desktop application. MindGenius does all the hardwork for you - just type and hit the + key and it draws the map without you having to pull a branch here, there and everywhere.
MindGenius is a high productivity tool that somehow makes it easy for you to work things out, think thing through, spot gaps, fix problems - I would find it really difficult to get through my volume of work without it
Great that the iPad app stick to the desktops DNA in terms of rapid data entry and the explorer which not only allows you to quickly find info in a large map but CRUCIALLY allows you to focus on one element and hide everything else except context - I think its this clear space that frees your mind by providing absolute focus in context. So more effective than panning - which to me takes you to a cluttered space. Love it!
Key to good use - keywords not sentences and think of sequence of events when developing maps
I'm a big fan and user of the desktop version and as a result was an early adopter of the iPad version.
I often use mind mapping for task management and was particularly drawn to mindgenius on the desktop due to its useful function set for managing tasks - adding more comprehensive notes, due dates, filters etc. I was very disappointed to realise that this app does not allow creating or editing of any such information - you can only read task dates, notes and categories, which makes it a very simple offering when compared to other options in the app store, such as ithoughts. Perhaps not a problem for some if you only intend to use it as a secondary tool to compliment the desktop version or dont use this functionality, but if you're like me and want to use the iPad to create maps including task dates, notes categories etc then you may find this a frustrating experience.
Personally I'm reluctantly reverting back to iThoughts until they get this sorted out.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
