Missed the target slightly...

I put this on my iPad and Mac, started using it to organize my ideas a bit better than an outliner or list maker. It is a pretty good mind mapper, and if you need all the functionality of a full up mind mapper, go for it. Unfortunately, I discovered that if I actually wanted to share my maps across devices, I had to upgrade this to the $30 version. It’s a nice product, but since the only additional feature I needed was to share maps across devices, it wasn’t worth it to me. Back to list managers that do share.

Oh, I would be OK with a $10 upgrade to just add on sharing, but not $30… sorry.

One last thing… as a mind mapper, i was also disappointed that it did not support many-to-many associations… in other words, I could not get an existing parent node to link to an existing child node such that the child node had two parents. A pretty standard thing, really. Maybe that’s in the upgrade, but can’t say.

BEWARE if you do the FREE TRIAL … when it expires you lose all your created work and ...

I loved and used the free TRIAL. However, I saw NO WARNING that all my work was about to suddenly disappear as my trial time ran out.

Had I been forewarned, I would have made copies of charts I spent a LOT of time and effort making and/or converted to the paid version to save that work.

I saw no warning and lost many hours of very hard work and very important information!

I would have bought the paid version in order to keep my work from being lost. But, now I have no confidence in the App developer; if they would just jerk/cancel all I did without giving me notice and opportunity to BUY and keep it. That puts them in same category as Bill Gates, that was an old trick he used if you tried any microsoft free trials; they screw you for not buying.

PS. Had it not been for taking away my work without warning, I would have given this app a 4 or 5.

Simple and Effective

This app quickly became my go-to app for brainstorming, organizing ideas, and outlining research. I know there are more powerful apps with more bells and whistles (and a higher price tag) and, if you need those you may not want this app. But, for me, I just need a quick and functional tool that gets the job done and this app does exactly that.
