Customer Reviews

Decent, but lacking in some usability areas

Good little app, but I've a few suggestions to make it more usable

- Would like to see a way to automatically highlight all leaf-nodes in a different color (maybe via a toggle button). This would be useful for project dependency graphs so you can easily see which are the priority tasks which need doing.
- The hover button which appear on a node are a little clumsy, and switch position depencding on what side of the Main node they are on. Would like an option to keep the position consistent always (ie + button always on left)
- Seems to be no way to select multiple nodes, you have to click each one and delete in turn. Maybe holding SHIFT could allow multi-select, or holding CMD would allow a bounding selection box to be drawn so you can select a bunch of them at once and ten drag them into a new position

Good revision app

Good revision app and easy to use! Also love the fact that you can print them out easily.


This is a very useful app which does the job of many vastly over priced programmes on the market. I would really recommend it.
