Customer Reviews

The Most Useful and Intuitive Mindmap App I have ever used on iPad

This app is incredible in its capabilities, potential, and intuitive nature. The research features included within the app are worth the price you pay. Not to mention that, after a short introduction on how to use the software, it is incredibly user friendly and perhaps the best mindmap app I have ever used (and I have used 25+ different mindmapping apps, both desktop based and iPad based). The developer's website includes a 6 minute video that will get you up to speed on how to use the app.

The research feature allows you to research from the web and insert items of research directly back into your mindmap!

The ability to export into several other mindmapping softwares and into word and pages formats, etc., is so incredibly useful!

Also, a very handy search feature that allows you to search your mindmaps and notes within mindmaps for specific words and phrases. Very, very useful feature.

Incredible mindmapping app. Worth every penny and then some.

Really neat

Wonderful interface for the iPad! Building up speed is essential. Practice a bit, and you can match your previous speed on a desktop. Export to freemind is flawless.

Update: iThoughts is very stable and inspiring to use. Recent additions of the extended keyboard and new search capability (in app purchase) are really appreciated. I use the export text and PDF all the time to share. And, just found out that iThoughts works great with a Bluetooth keyboard if needed for faster notes or brainstorming.

Research: What a fun addition! Browser is very stable and cross-functionality with images, links, and topics is great! Once again, this is multiplying my efforts, saving time, and motivating my creative side.

After you get started, don't forget to review the help. You'll learn about some wonderful nuggets (like adding notes and triple return) you might not find on your own. There is a lot here!

This program incredible

I use Mindjet on my pc. I also have Xmind and Nova5. Mindjet is by far the best desktop. But nothing I've seen or used on iPad is close to iThought. It has replaced all outliners, word processing applications for taking notes and Bible Study. It is versatile and transfers from iPad to virtually any major program flawlessly. I highly recommend this program to anyone who is creative and thinks on the fly.
