MindNode – Delightful Mind Mapping

By IdeasOnCanvas GmbH

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


MindNode makes mind mapping delightful. Mind maps are a visual representation of your ideas, starting with a central thought and growing from there. MindNode allows you to brainstorm, organize & share your thoughts in an intuitive way, so you can focus on the idea behind it. The clean interface lets you concentrate on generating and connecting thoughts, and an infinitely expanding canvas means that no matter how big or complicated your project gets, MindNode can keep up.

MindNode has helped students, artists and project managers to be more creative with less effort.

Customer Reviews

With a Gazillion Mindmapping Apps, Why This One?

MindNode has been around for a long time: it is tried and true. While I keep trying others, such as Xmind (Mac only) and iThoughts, I keep coming back to this one. It sticks to mindmapping functionality, with a few enhancements, so you can't make it into a general-purpose glorified drawing tool or database tool. This keeps the app both focused and clean. I find that MindNode is a little more polished than other mindmapping apps, generates gorgeous mindmaps without fuss, synchronizes nicely across iCloud, and supports a Mac version. There are plenty of free mindmap apps, but you get what you pay for. As for any "missing" features, if you feel you need a really fancy enhanced graphic for publication or presentations, you can easily export the final mindmap to a tool that understands OPML, like OmniGraffle. Personally, I have yet to find any reason to try and "beautify" what MindNode creates.

Outstanding Versatile App

The latest additions to this app make it truly great. I love the new search feature. My original review follows...

I have purchased many apps over the years but this by far is one of the best. In addition to using it for brainstorming, I also use it for presentations, note taking and more. The sync is perfect. The iCloud versions feature (which lets you roll back to an earlier save) is fantastic and I wish it was offered by more apps. Well worth the purchase. Really excellent.


This app is getting better and better. I wish one could sync a diagram of folder to well-known cloud storages.
