I’m using this app to help me develop a story. I purchased the app and it’s the best purchase I’ve probably ever made. It’s easier for me to organize my ideas and work through any decisions I need to make within the narrative. I store my characters and their whole lives in here. It’s so helpful when I go to sit down and actually write it out because I can reference the bones on this app. The bones of my universe and the people in it. I absolutely love how this helps me wrap my head around ideas and projects easier. Bravo!
This app looks beautiful and has a really well-designed interface, but it doesn't really offer what I need. To me, the whole point of mind-mapping is to visualize the links between things and ideas in order to reveal hidden connections. This app does the mapping, but has no way to link objects except to the object they are initially linked to. So, for example, if you wanted to make a map where you have breakfast, lunch, and dinner foods, you could do that just fine. But if you wanted to show that cheeseburgers can be both a lunch and dinner food, the only way to do so is to create "cheeseburger" twice — once under lunch, then again under dinner. The ideal would be to create the object under one of them, then draw a link to the other, so you only have one "cheeseburger", and linked to both lunch and dinner. This way you see the connections between the ideas — again, the whole point of mind-mapping. Creating the object twice (one under each category) is accurate, but not useful, since you'd actually have to explore the entire map in order to make the connection that cheeseburger is under more than one category. Which, again, defeats the whole purpose of mind-mapping.
This app has lots of potential. Great look compared to the rest, but missing basic functionality, including enlarged note pages (they remain minimal, even on a computer version), text editing capability (bold, italic, font options would be nice!) and collage capability to add photos/snippets to the actual note page (images currently attach as a lone circle). Circles can be colored (textures would also be nice) and icons can be added (instead of icons, it would be nice to choose a background image from photos). Then make the whole thing 3D to visually link different themes to other distant circles (avoiding redundancy/replication), and then make it movable with Apple finger commands for efficiency/speed. So close (closer than the rest), yet so far from perfect for note compiling and innovative and artistic thinking. I will do my best to use it until future upgrades have the aforementioned demands~ thanks and you’re welcome!
I just downloaded and played around with it. I’m starting to really like it so far. As someone who has organization problems and sometimes struggle to see the whole picture when working on projects, this really helps map everything out! I do think the color options are too limited though. For each word or concept I always have a very specific color attached to them. The way those colors makes me feel kind of help guide my thought processes a bit. I don’t know if many people equally feel this way also but that’s one of my quirks. Same thing also goes with the icons and emojis; way too limited. I love the print option. I wonder if I can blow the diagram up so I can print it on a poster and put it over my desk? Would be cool and extra helpful!!!
Appreciate simplicity of flowing from one node to another and easily connecting, adding, removing and editing nodes. Fun and fast. One request that would take this to 5 stars: the ability to import links -- web pages, images, videos, etc. Currently I can set the title or description of a node to an http link, but it's not clickable, let alone expanded and previewing the content at the link. This would make finding items out and about in the web so easy to import into Mindly and add to the map of your choosing. Do you have plans to add such a feature?
