Version 1.8.3
Review by 1Design4U

from chaos to organization and now move multiple nodes at once - After trying the free version I bought the full version. This program is really simple and easy to use. And it looks great for doing presentations, especially if your paper mind maps look like chaos and confusion. I really like the fact that it will export out as a pdf and I can take that pdf and put it into Adobe illustrator and tweak it as necessary. The only down side so far is finding the little tricks to it. I have not found an actual manual on it, except for the basic one. For those of us who have large maps and get frustrated by having to move each node individually I did learn that there is a way to move that node and all of its subs. With the mouse arrow on the topic you want to move, click it and wait a second or two and the sub nodes will highlight too. Then you can drag all of them around instead of each one individually.

Free Version is cripled — No Way to Export with Notes - I spent an hour with the tool. I loved the interface and simplicity. I then wanted to share a copy with my notes—can’t. No way to export notes and details in any fashion— not even a PDF print. It doesn’t use the typical .MM format either. So anything you do on the free version is basically useless unless you upgrade. This is almost as evil as “in-app” purchases.

Review by Greg Waddell

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.

Easy to use - This app is much easier to use than a couple of others I tried. I also find it very intuitive and a fun, simple way to capture thoughts for later use.
