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

ThinkSpace reviews

For those of you familiar with the cult favorite Tinderbox app on the Mac, this application comes the closest I’ve seen to replicating Tinderbox’s map experience. It’s not there yet — long form text can’t yet be associated with the nodes on the map. There’s no tagging outside of color. No nesting of nodes. But, it has a super simple, clean, mapping UI. Keep an eye on this one.

This is my very first review. I just spent 2 hours searching for an alternative app to draw mind maps because the one that I used is now charging a super high subscription fee. I guess the developer sacrifice efficiency for flexibility. You can organize the map in any way you want. Therefore, the cards are not automatically aligned, and you cannot create a sibling card by just press return which is a feature of other mind mapping apps. I think I can live with this small shortcoming for now. I do hope that a desktop version can be developed. I am not used to do extensive work on iPad.

- Sylvia on the road

I have been using the iOS version of Thinkspace on my iPad for a while and love it. It fills the mind-mapping app niche in a way that no other app does, so I was pleasantly suprised to see the macOS version in the App Store. The macOS 1.0.0 version seems to be a direct port of the iOS app, and the differences in the desktop versus mobile UIs are apparent. For example, zooming in and out on iOS is a simple pinch gesture that relies on the iOS touch interface. I have not found a way to zoom on the macOS version, since I do not have a multi-touch HID device such as a trackpad on my iMac. I hope to see a mouse/keyboard/menu-based way to zoom in the next update.


Mindly reviews

Not sure about others, but it's been very helpful for me personally and helped me declutter my mind, organize my mind, thoughts and plans. It's so helpful to see everything visually, well organized and laid out. I wish I could set alarms and reminders straight from the app. (Maybe in the future.)

- Sylvester Massey

I've used this app for mapping studying, concepts, and creative writing. It's a fun visual thinkspace. It's nice that you can add images as bubbles and link to other spots in the same mindmap. I've been using this app for a couple years, still happy :) The Text export could be better if it was a bulleted list outline. I appreciate the ways the developers have improved the sharing over the years and I look forward to more!

By far the easiest and best mind mapping app available. I've used this app for years and it is absolutely essential to me on a daily basis. The only thing I wish is that there was an option to backup to Google Drive. I've lost my mind maps multiple times because I no longer use Dropbox. Everyone who downloads from the Google Play Store is going to have a Drive account, so I think that would make this app more useful to more people.
