MindNode 4

By IdeasOnCanvas GmbH

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


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

Simple, easy, does its job beautifully

I'm enjoying using MindNode and appreciate it's simple directness. I actually like that I have to concentrate on ideas rather than getting caught up in design and layout. This is its biggest plus. That said, It gets less than five stars for not having a quick way in iOS to rapid fire brainstorm. I spend too much time poking at the screen before a new unconnected node appears and my thought has disappeared. Plus I would really like to be able to sort items in outline view. And how about more than one personal map template or let us change the pre-set ones with a revert button? BTW, I like the designs that are included.

Intuitive and simple

I've used one of the leading desktop mind map programs since it's first release many, many years ago. Until now have not found an iPad mind map app that didn't feel like more trouble than it was worth. Within 5 minutes I'd become adept enough at MindNode that I could brainstorm without having to concentrate on the app itself. Love how easy it is to sync up with iOS Reminders as well.


I love mind mapping. It's great for decluttering and ordering what's in my mind. It's equally great for decluttering and ordering creative discussion at a meeting. Last night I used it to capture minutes at a board meeting over dinner in a restaurant.

That being said, I find much mind mapping software very complicated, hard to use. MindNode is easy, fun, elegant, and inexpensive.
