"Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today."

Most popular feedback for Mind Node

This digital mind mapping tool can be a versatile way for kids to organize their ideas -- that is, if they can figure out how to use it. MindNode – Mind Ma‪p has a clean interface. And if kids stick to the most basic functions, it's also relatively easy to use. As kids branch out and look to the various icons, menus and submenus to create more complex maps, things can get more complicated. The developers have lots of support, including a massive user guide, but not all kids will have the patience to learn all the nuances. The free version helps keep kids to the basic features since those are the only ones available. But that also keeps the maps quite simple, and limits the ways that kids can personalize their visuals. In general, for kids who want to use a mind map to guide brainstorming and organize thoughts, MindNode – Mind Ma‪p can be a good start though it may have a learning curve.

I use MURAL for teaching and workshops with participants from around the world.. It makes a meeting become a collaborative work session for capturing and decision-making. I looked at other options but MURAL is so much easier to use with high level of functionality.

Mind Node reviews

Essential productivity app MindNode has been my spatial planning tool of choice since Version 4. Now V6 has been released with some important updates, at no charge for recent V5 purchasers. One feature that I specifically requested is being able to edit multiple items on iPad like the Mac OS app. Thank you for listening and adding this feature. Of course I appreciate the free update; I’m also good with purchasing major upgrades when the time comes. Just keep doing what you do best. Here are a few quick comments about the product. It has been rock solid with a very uncluttered UI. Import / export modes simplify moving data between apps and quickly creating a complex mind map in MindNode. Theme chooser and outline view work great and stay out of the way until needed. Kudos Update: This is still an excellent app. There are a few features that would make it even better. First, the ability to copy and paste object styles. Second, the ability to assign horizontal and vertical layouts per level; I would like an org chart layout that is horizontal at the top and vertical below each branch for example.

Life Changing I have a way of doing things but this has introduced me to a new way of spatial mind mapping. I absolutely how clean the UI is and how I can add notes inside of nodes. Since I started school this is the only way I can take notes and clearly organize everything. I advise anybody wanting to try something new, to use this app and give it 100% effort. I will add just a few “personal” things I hope they add, these are just my own opinion and reflect no negativity to the app: More in depth note section and better way to add bullet points. MOREEEEE COLORS If the connections could “flow” better instead of some kind of boomerang looking line. Again this is just my personally opinion, this app is amazing and I know new users will love it! Keep up the amazing job!

I have been using this program since it was first introduced. Until now I have used it for every condition where I needed to relate unrelated things. As promised, I am rewriting my review since the app support people discovered that my problems are not caused by this app. I had begun using iCloud with all my MindNode documents. One document, in particular, I updated daily and frequently updated from different devices. My problem occurred because iCloud did not handle my more complex documents property. Worse than wrecking my document, iCloud is set up to delete any documents that iCloud does not control. So if I turn off iCloud from holding and updating my MindNode documents I cannot recover them to my local device (iPad or iPhone). There are tricks I could play to keep or recover a single document, but I have over 30 MindNode documents so that is impractical. The MindNode support staff were extremely helpful and emailed me with questions until they narrowed the problem to iCloud. From there they had no suggestions except to not keep my documents in the cloud. I will continue to use MindNode if or when I can get my documents back, but I won’t create new documents or update existing ones until iCloud is out of the picture. Solved my iCloud issue by emailing my MindNode documents to myself. Then turned iCloud off.

Mural reviews

The unlimited nature of MURAL boards is powerful. I need to space to think and create and reflect and MURAL allows me to do that fast. The sharing aspect is key for me, the real time collaboration, seeing how others interact. It's like magic!

- Louise M. Branding Consultant

Mural is a great tool for collaboration and brainstorming. I liked the fact that it had a rich set of templates that can be availed right away. Mural's interface is designed to be friendly to users and hence it was very easy to use.

- Hema B. Consultant

Mural is the secret tool I use that makes my coworkers think I'm better at sensemaking than I really am. Fast, easy, expressive, Mural is great.

Pros & cons

Has a Focus-Mode feature
Tracks progress
Cons
Some formating functions are hard to manage
Too simple
Limited icons and templates

Mural

Pros
Not only is this a wonderful and functional app, but it's beautiful to use
It's as aesthetically pleasing as it is soothing to my designer's need to get my ideas across and organize them
I love the concept of having the free space to create and share ideas in real time
Mural is a great tool, generally speaking I am happy with it
The double click for post-its, the "follow me" function, are great
I love that you can paste a URL and it shows a thumbnail of the article."
Cons
One thing that has frustrated new users is getting the hang of controls especially if you are using on a computer (mouse vs trackpad controls are a bit different)
Navigating around the screen can be a little weird, especially if a lot of people are on at the same time
Sometimes the web visualization gets stuck or shows blank boards where they should have content, but a quick page refresh generally fixes it
That you have to pay for the product- not all users are on baord."
