Mindscope - the Mind Mapping Outliner for iOS

By John Goering Free

Developer's Description

Mindscope is a new and powerfully simple way to store your thoughts without getting lost in the details. Quickly create text entries and drag them around, aligning them to each other. Perfect for brainstorming, capturing, and sorting thoughts or taking notes. Tapping an entry enters its own page where you can create more entries (and more sub-boards). Drag entries into other entries to quickly sort your thoughts into categories and projects. Keep track of lists, todos, notes, and anything else you feel like keeping track of, for example a list of ways to be funny when writing an app description. Or something. Copy and paste entries including their sub-entries Export all entries and sub-entries of a board via e-mail as a bullet list. Import any saved .mindscope file. Set a default font size for any board (long-press on a font size and select "Set As Default"All of this...completely for free! Yeah, I know, I can't believe it either. You can "pay" me with an App Store review, how does that sound?However, if you are up for spending money, with the "Unlock Everything" in-app purchase (currently available at an Early Adopter special rate!!!), you can also save your own .mindscope files, search through all your entries instantly, create cross-links between boards, create arrows and lines between entries, set up a grid background for a page, set your own colors per page, and export boards to an OPML file (suitable for opening in most major mind-mapping programs). Any upcoming features in future updates will be included for the unlocked version at no extra cost.NOTE: The current in-app price for Unlock Everything will be going up with the next update! Unlock now to save money! Tell your friends to save them money!See a video of Mindscope in action at http://www.mindscopeapp.comQuotes from happy customers:"Its hitting a sweet spot for me. I have pretty much every single Mind-Mapping or Outlining app for iOS, and this is among the best.This is EXACTLY what I've been hoping for. I so need to send flowers to your mother for having you."Mindscope is a terrific app, elegant, easy to use, and incredibly useful."Scapple for Mac comes closest to Mindscope in its combination of function, ease of use and minimalism but Mindscope is better.""A very cool app. Think of it as Workflowy unbound from the outline."

What's new in version 1.3.1

In Version 1.3.1 - FIXED a crash bug when searching for a link element. HUGE thanks to "Zignfrew" for reporting that bug with a 4-star review. Now THAT is the way to report bugs... :)In Version 1.3 - More cool stuff many of you have been asking for, including my own mom. (Hi Mom!) Read on for the details......first, as usual, thank you guys for your kind words in your App Store reviews and emails. They really mean a lot.NEW FEATURE: Undo/RedoThis one has been asked for by a lot of you, including my own awesome mom, my most faithful beta tester (Hi again, Mom!). So anyhow: to undo a change you made, just slowly swipe left with two fingers. To redo the change, swipe right with the exact same two fingers - I'd like to recommend your index and middle finger, but actually it would work with any two fingers, and I give you complete freedom to pick which fingers you want to use for the swiping. I'm awesome like that. But I digress...NEW FEATURE: Cross-links (part of UNLOCK EVERYTHING)This one is a bit of a mind bender - you can now create a link from one board in one area of your Mindscope to an entirely different board in a totally different area. To do so, copy the entry you want a link to, navigate to the board you want to link from and paste the entry. You will now be able to choose whether to create a copy of the entry, or a cross-link to the entry. Cross-links are underlined with a dashed line. You can still move entries into them - they will simply move entries into the board the cross-link links to. Make sense?VARIOUS IMPROVEMENTS Vastly improved performance especially for mindscopes with hundreds of entries (like mine)... When you set a grid background for a board, your entries will now align to the grid cell centers. A few more help videos explaining various things a bit better FIXED a bug where you'd see German for the word Delete (Lschen - which by the way is a way cooler word for delete than 'delete', but I digress) FIXED Changing the font size didn't change the size of the selection boxCOMING SOONThe upcoming version after this will also support the iPhone and will include the ability to save/sync your documents to at least iCloud!!!NOTE: I will again be raising the price of Unlocking Everything when the next version is released, so to save money, unlock now - and hey, you know what? Tell all your friends to get Mindscope and unlock it, too - they'll be so grateful, maybe they'll give you better Christmas presents this year. But I digress...
