Software Reviews and Criticism

  • By BiggBuggg

    Excellent Program

    I rarely if ever write reviews of software, but I really feel motivated to do so here. This program is BY FAR the best mind mapping software available today. I’ve been working in industry for nearly 35 years, and I've tried nearly a dozen other programs before I stumbled on this one. Mind Node blows all the others away. If you’re not on a Windows or iPad… well, I’m sorry for you. The rich feature set, dead-easy and intuitive use, the near-constant additions and improvements by the developer, and the overall rock solid stability and reliabily of this program makes it second to none. I use MindNode daily in the course of my work; from outlining documents, to brainstorming projects, to planning design review… you name, I use it for it. Buy this program and begin using it today. You will not be disappointed.

    My indispensible planning tool

    I've tried several todo-list type tools for planning, and they never seemed to have the flexibility to allow me to sequence and organize my thoughts to come up with a prioritized task list, even though that was their main job. But then I picked this up, which is not at all designed for planning, but fo rorganzing your thoughts and it has become my indispensible tool for planning my unstructured and non-deadlined activities. It makes it easy for me to build and see the relationships betwen different things I'm trying to do, and as a result, much easier to set up the most efficient sequences of activities. Not sure why a brainstorming tool would end up solving my planning problems, but this wne did.

    Fix the font smoothing!

    MindNode is a great app. Love using it on mobile and desktop. The new keyboard shortcuts for MindNode 6: meh. I had gotten used to the shortcuts with MindNode 5, really felt like it was fixing something that wasn’t broken. I’m finally getting used to the new shortcuts, I’ll live. But please, please, please: FIX THE FONT SMOOTHING ON DESKTOP. When I pinch-zoom to view different parts of my (visually large) files, the fonts usually do not smooth out. This was not a problem in MindNode 5. It is absolutely a problem on MindNode 6 and it is very frustrating. I have to zoom in excessively to get the fonts to smooth. Please fix the font smoothing. Keeping the font smoothing working > new keyboard shortcuts.

    Great app, but could use additional features

    I have never tried mind-mapping before, and decided to dive in head-first with MindNode based on great reviews from others. Overall, it's a good app with a nice UI, and the syncing with the mobile version of the app is really well done. I would love to see increased integration with other apps like Evernote, OmniFocus, Dropbox, Google Drive, etc. Also, it seems like it wouldn't be that hard to offer other layouts besides horizontal and vertical, i.e. circular. Another thing that would be nice is the abiilty to link mindmaps files to other mindmaps, i.e. a node has a link that when clicked opens up another MindNode file.

    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.
