I was never much of a mind mapping person — that is until I stumbled into it a couple of years ago. Since then, its become an essential part of my thought process. I often turn to mind maps to help me flesh out ideas and having an app on my iOS device that allows me to do so, is game changing.

Mention mind mapping on iOS and immediately two names rise to the top: iThoughtsHD and MindNode. When time came to choose one, I opted for MindNode — Despite iThoughts being heralded as the best. It’s minimal, almost playful aesthetics drew me in and it was powerful and versatile enough for my needs while being a joy to use.

It did have it’s shortcomings however, but this update addresses many of them, adds a few new features and a new coat of paint too.


Our featured sponsor this week is MindNode, an easy and intuitive application for collecting, organizing and
outlining your thoughts and ideas as mind maps.

Mind maps can be used for many different tasks;

  • To-do lists
  • Brainstorming
  • Holiday planning
  • Research
  • Writing
  • Project management

MindNode is a great app for creating mind maps on the iPad, it’s intuitive and easy from the moment you open it. It has an automatically expanding work space and allows a wide array of customisation.
