ThinkBuzan is the latest developer of mind mapping software to launch an iPad app, iMindMap Mobile HD. This innovative tool brings the organic experience of creating visual maps in the highly intuitive iMindMap to the tactile environment of Apple’s popular iPad. Its features include:
- A presentation mode, which you can use to share your ideas branch by branch on any screen. Forward and back arrows enable you to move back and forth through your mind map, while a vertical column of topic names displayed on the left side of the screen enables you to jump to other vies of your map. Any notes attached to topics appear on the iPad’s screen, so you can refer to them during your presentation. This looks very slick!
- A variety of export formats, including image, PDF and iMindMap files. You can further edit maps created on iMindMap Mobile HD on the program’s desktop version.
- Speed mind map mode, which enables you to capture your thoughts quickly and easily; the app automatically arranges the new branches for you.
This app looks very promising, but at US$32.99, it’s definitely a premium-priced tool! Still, if you’re a user of the desktop version of iMindMap and own an iPad, then purchasing this powerful mobile mapping tool is a small investment, indeed.
