- MindNode for iPhone and iPad has been updated to include new node and Quick Entry improvements.
- Dynamic nodes move and react when adding a new node to a mind map.
- Quick Entry improvements make it quicker and easier to collect information and thoughts.
MindNode, a popular mind-mapping app for iPhone, iPad, and Mac, has a new update out that includes improvements to the interface when adding new nodes as well as using Quick Entry.
The new MindNode update, which existing users will find waiting for them in the App Store, has a new party trick in the form of dynamic nodes. Now, adding a new node to an existing mind map will cause existing nodes to move out of the way, showing how things will look once a new node has been inserted. It's all super smooth and fluid and adds a layer of polish that some similar apps can't match.
Next, we have Quick entry improvements that make it easier than ever to quickly capture ideas and have them take shape in the form of a mind map. New Smart Text Shortcuts have been added while the interface now features an editable outline. MindNode has now also added an optional account system called MindNode ID, designed to enhance the existing MindNode Plus subscription for those who sometimes use devices that aren't connected to iCloud.
All of that, and more, is now available in the new MindNode update. You can get it in the App Store now. The app was already one of the best Mac, iPhone, and iPad apps at what it did and now it's even better!
