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.

MindNode 5 is a professional workflow necessity!

MindNode 5 builds upon the 2nd version without creating a bloated interface. It is as clean and functional as the Apple technology it runs on. I firmly believe that mind mapping is a must for creative professionals. It effectively allows you to conceptulize large amounts of data and refine information visually. With that being said, MindNode offers a better UI/UX than it’s other competitors on the App store. I have installed the trial version of Simple Mind and although it is packed with more features, it’s interface comes off as clunky and not very user-friendly in comparison to MindNode. One such example is that to import pictures you must go through a file-browser as opposed to drag-and-drop. Also, Simple Mind also doesn’t allow for convenient picture preview window when pressing the spacebar (albeit it runs on more OS’s). For $40 I would consider this software a good value considering its practical applications and would definitely advise upgrading. The developers have been responsive to my messages and I recommend sending information to IdeasOnCanvas regarding MindNode’s functionality and user-interface. If you are unsure about integrating this product into your workflow, get the 2-week trial version before purchasing!

2 -> 5? marginal upgrade but still one of my favorite apps

Whats new in 5.0: Quick Entry for the mac toolbar and Top down layouts.

MindNode started out as a way to organize information for my design work. In the past year I’ve started to use it for EVERYTHING. Organizing thoughts for important emails or making decisions. Meeting notes and accompanying to-do’s. To make site maps (glad there are top down layouts now!) Even the default theme works really well as presentation pieces.

As a highly visual person I struggle with unloading thoughts and often get hung up on arrangement or organization. MindNode (especially with custom shortcuts) make it real easy for me to brain dump- then visually arrange. I’ve been using version 2 for awhile and just upgraded after it was brought to my attention that there is a version 5 (dont know what happened to the other three). Not much difference between the two however the Quick entry makes is super convenient and well designed. I could see how the workflow would be easy to execute on mobile and is a convincing argument to spring for the mobile app.
