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.

• Create multiple mind maps on a self-expanding canvas

Customer Reviews

A truly elegant app designed to facilitate brainstorming

Over many, many years (I'd rather not say how many), I have used virtually every type of tool to organize my thoughts and projects. Just to put the scope of said projects in context, I have written many books (many technical textbooks and several novels) ranging from a modest 400 pages or so, to quite a few approaching two thousand pages in length. I have also developed a large number of detailed technical courses.
Needless to say, you don't just sit down with the proverbial blank piece of paper and start writing. MindNode is hands down the best tool I've ever had the pleasure to use when developing the outline, the flow of a project. I can't recommend it too strongly. The developers should be suitably proud of what they've accomplished. Kudos.

Balances design with features

I use this app to outline and plan out lecture outlines that will be converted into slides later. I'm very happy with the current state of the app: it is attractive and pleasing to use while offering the most important, necessary features. It's also actively maintained, unlike a lot of outliners on the App Store. I also use iThoughts, and my sense is they take slightly different approaches: Mind Node is cleaner and more straightforward, with core features implemented well. iThoughts is like a "Swiss Army knife" of mapping software and is very powerful. Mind Node does offer a terrific outline view pane that makes navigating a large map easy. Uses iCloud, which is a good/bad thing at the moment.

Great update, not for multi platform users

Mindnode is a great app. I use it on the Mac and my iPhone on a daily basis for a few months now.
The problem is, they just released a new Mac version and asking for another 20$ (just paid 20$ not long ago...)
I don't buy the whole "was built from the ground up" lingo.
Now I get an annoying "incompatible version" dialog every time I open a synced item, and can't use the new features.
Hope the company will learn to treat their loyal users better, and focus on new users instead of trying to earn quick cash on their existing users.
