Customer Reviews

If you’re serious about mindmapping...

…then this the program for you. MindNode 5 is one of the most expensive programs I’ve ever bought and it took me a while to come around to buying it. If you only need to make occasional mindmap style diagrams this probably isn’t for you. After experimenting with different brain storming and note taking styles I decided I liked this philosophy best and wanted to make it a bigger part of my workflow. I would encourage anyone interested to use the trial and if you decide its something you’ll use every day then there’s no better program for mind map style notes. MyMindNode also makes it really easy to share. I personally think if you spend $40 on the Mac version the iOS version should be included because you’re going to want to use them both and then you’ve got over $50 in it. SimpleMind is $30 with a free version but the Pro features are specific and useful enough that you have to get it and MindNode is much nicer and not far off in price. So if you’re serious about visual notes, this is the best. Another thing about MindNode is that it’s just plain fun to use. Anytime I find myself with a blank screen I pull up MindNode and just doodle around for a while. You can’t really get the same experience from a text outliner.

Very Nice...

While its a bit expensive, it has a ton of polish. A few things though:

-Please oh please create a preferences option to hide the scroll bars (full screen mode would look AMAZING with that addition)
-More general customization for appearance in general… I know there are “themes” you can select, but quick selection options for things like default background colour & font would be nice
-Option to customize toolbar would be nice (personally I like minimalism and just removing everything from it and using the menu bar to selection tools)

File management is the app’s only weakness

I bought all of the highly rated mindmapping maps over the years. However, the app’s marriage of Mac and iOS versions are heads and shoulders above the rest. MindNode went from a promising app with some cool eye-candy but limited features compared to others in the AppStore to now setting the bar for all competitors. My only complaint is the file management system in the iOS version. It’s clunky an unintuitive at best. If this could be addressed, I’d gladly make this a 5-star review.
