Several bugs fixed.
I have tried several of the mind map apps available on the App Store, and I've not had issues with any of them. That said, this one stands out from the others in ease of use. The commands are incredibly intuitive. There's virtually no learning curve, and I believe most people would find they can create basic maps in Simple Mind immediately, not needing even an overview of the instructions. Mind maps in general are a great way for more dynamic, non-linear thinkers (or in my case, harebrained) to keep lists and outlines. In my opinion, Simple Mind is the best mind-mapping app available.
This is a fabulous organizational note taking app. It isn't for everyone just because everyone's brains work and think different. Give it a try, see if it works for you.
Great app to map out your thoughts
Since I downloaded the app, I reach for it when inspiration comes to me, which is constantly. Minds maps keep me organized and this app keeps it simple and cool.
