This app is still available because our first customers have bought this app. If we delete it, those customers must buy SimpleMind again when they want to (re)install or update SimpleMind.

Best Mind Mapping App

Could not live without SimpleMind!


Great overall, but could use a bit of bug-fixing.

The first week I started using this program, I was raving about it. Intuitive, clean interface that doesn't get in the way. Multi-platform support. Beautiful output. this program not only works like a mind-mapping program should -allowing you to brainstorm, plan, teach, present, whatever-it also has underlying support for context mapping.

So, what's not to like? Here are a few gripes that come to mind: (1) I created several mind maps on the PC version of this program, and did a bit of custom tweaking to some of the font sizes, etc. I then looked at some of these maps (via DropBox) on my iPad (or maybe iPhone). Great. No problem. Then when I went back later to do more editing on my PC, I noted that the formatting/sizing had gotten all screwed up and everything was somewhat jammed together. Whups. A definite annoyance-the cross-platform compatibility appears not to be as robust as one might hope. (2) node sizing is slightly off sometimes- the edges of the text can stick out beyond the borders just enough to irritate. (3) The app tries to sell me the desktop version now and then. Ok, whatever, but... I *own* the desktop version. So... Cease! Desist! Similarly, I've already written a review. So...stop bugging me to do it! Cease! Desist!

All in all, highly recommended, but I do hope the development team cleans up these few persnickety details.


Update ---> issue resolved RE Misleading

After some correspondence back and forth the refunded me fully and explained the difficulty was due the outsourcing of payments, and now i can enjoy this app
and then decide if i wish to upgrade.

if i could rate this at a negative i would. i had been a fan of the mobile app
and when i added an iPad into my life i needed a way to sync my networked
world, so i went to their website, tried the trial desktop app and found i liked it and purchased the app from their website, and here is where the troubles began.
no link was provided until almost 11 hours later, by this time, as the trial app is not activated upon purchase, and to be disposed with, any work done could be lost,
i discovered in their sellers email i could have purchased this app from the apple store and there discovered they offered a Free Option! which i downloaded and requested a refund, 12 hours later i received an email saying they would not refund my money because the refund would benefit apple and not them and added a sorry.
well i am sorry they feel the need to fleece people after having them wait 12 hours.
no apology was offered but an implied message that i was causing them hard ship.
obviously i will not be using this free app even as i paid $33+ dollars for the privilege.
