Mindnode 2.0 for Mac brings truckloads of new features and improvements

Mindnode for iOS, one of the Essential Apps shortlisted by Apple App Store, has been my only go-to app for crafting mind-maps at project brainstorming and outlining stage. It has been quite painful for me to look at a small screen on my iPhone 6 to work something out. Personally, I would rather move the work to my Macbook on my desk so I can sit down and work something out concrete comfortably. Fortunately, there is already an option.

For those who are new to Mindnode:

MindNode makes mind mapping delightful. Mind maps are a visual representation of your ideas, starting with a central thought and growing from there. MindNode allows you to brainstorm, organize & share your thoughts in an intuitive way, so you can focus on the idea behind it. The clean interface lets you concentrate on generating and connecting thoughts, and an infinitely expanding canvas means that no matter how big or complicated your project gets, MindNode can keep up.

Mindnode basically allows you to:

  • Create multiple mind maps on a self-expanding canvas
  • Automatically organize complicated mind maps
  • Highlight important nodes using different styles, images and stickers
  • Share interactive documents publicly via the web through our new MyMindNode service
  • Access all your mind maps from your iPhone, iPad or Mac using iCloud Drive
  • Export mind maps to other apps as PDF, OPML, PNG, FreeMind, Markdown or text file
