Version 6.0.3
Review by Professor Kliq

Manage your thoughts - The work I do and the way I think are sometimes but not often compatible. It really depends on how I manage the thoughts and ideas I have which are seldom related but almost always prompt some sort of follow-through. I use MindNode for anything from meeting notes to just general problem solving and getting all of the stuff in my mind out into something I can see. The ability to move things around cleanly allows you to connect thoughts in ways you otherwise might not have - and in a way that's very visually pleasing to boot! It's an excellent product to help get the most out of your ideas and make even better ones. I use this application to conduct meetings and invariably someone asks what it is: "It's called MindNode and you can find it on the app store." "Yeah this is really cool!" Every time. I cannot recommend it enough, especially if you're a scatterbrain like me who just wants to make sense out of the non-stop thinking I do all day! Pro-tip: if there's something bothering you, whether it's at work or your personal life, one of my favorite things to do is to just put on some music, turn off my phone, close all chat, email, and browser applications, turn off WiFi, and just sit with MindNode open and figure things out for an hour. You will be astonished how much better you will feel afterward!

Version 6.0.4
Review by nutella_98

Rich feature set!? What "rich feature set"!? - I am surprised people are rating this app so highly. No doubt, the app has a really nice UI and pleasant color schemes. But as far as some people write in ther review "rich feature set", well, I am not sure where the "rich feature set" is. I'd say this app has the bare minimum "feature set" that otherwise a standard mind mapping software requires. It lacks many of the important (and I'd say basic" feture set. I have email commuication 3 years back with the developers promising different layouts (eg vertical, fish, org chart, etc). I could keep quoting their emails stating "...it is coming in the next version". Then about 6 months later it was changes to "...it is coming in the next MAJOR version". Now, nearly 2 years later there's still a single horizontal layout. The outliner is the most basic there's possible. Other apps has not only an outliner that you can edit, but it also provides a nice document format layout with tabbed display. Icons, line weights, shapes, are pretty standard on all mind mapping software. I'd say this app provides a pleasant look and feel with a hugely infalted price while providing basic feautres.

I NEVER Write Reviews...Well I guess I do now. - Amazing product. I run my own business developing and selling new products. I do just about everything as I only have a few stafff members. This product helps get all of your brain onto a page and allows you to sort and make rational decisions and prioritize things ( I have ideas to send to them on this). Im using it as a planner, organizer, roadmap, to-do, and conversation and event tracking tool for my business reminding me on ALL the past items and things accomplished and that need accomplishing for my company. A list can not do this. It cant connect across pages dynamically. It must be a visual map like this. It's how my brain works (Im sure others brains are the same, I think ;). I hope you guys continue to develop this and add non-obstructive features that stay out of the way but make this tool continue to grow in simplistic but powerful way. Its a breath of fresh air to other apps trying to get cute with lists and stuff, and unique way to run your business and life if you so choose. I plan to use this for various areas, but I've used it a few days and already I feel better about not having to keep all this in my head all the time, it clears the mind and allows you to think. Bravo, keep up the great work.

Version 7.2
Review by Maia17

Disappointed - I like this app very much. But I am disappointed and frustrated because I bought the annual subscription in April 17, 2020. A few weeks later after a signed for the annual subscription…there was an update. After the update I was unable to access the app that gives you access to all the features… only the free version. I contacted apple support twice and they told me it's a third party, blah-blah-blah-then I contacted the developers… got nothing from them yet. We buy apps thorough apple store and these people can do whatever they want? They should have more respect for customers. I’m waiting for you guys to restore my purchase or give my money back.

Version 7.2
Review by Peetr

Broke compatiblity with the past for dollars - This used to be a great app. Now it's a shady money grab. Used to work cross platform. Now it only does if you pay for a subscription, even AFTER having bought the app in the past. They claim they'll make it right, but they don't when you contact them. I have to go back to using MindNode 2 to have a working editor, even though I have a full MindNode 5 license on all my devices. Really sad to see from one of the app store's early great apps.
