MindGenius for iPad top rated mind mapping app

In the days prior to the launch of MindGenius for iPad, we’ve had over 2000 downloads with excellent customer feedback currently leaving us the top rated mind mapping App in the App store. 

After carrying out extensive Beta testing on the App, one of our top priorities was to maintain our desktop product DNA in the new App such as the Map Explorer and the ease of which you can add branches and hopefully the excellent feedback shows this has been achieved.





Here’s what some of our MindGenius for iPad users have said so far:
Mary Duggan, Senior Planning Manager, South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust:
“With MindGenius for iPad, I can immediately synch the map that shows my current work portfolio and priorities so it’s always there, and can be checked really quickly on the go. I can also synch my favourite templates like my Benefits Scoping Paper, Business Case, and Project Initiation Document so that I have them all at my fingertips. There is also a big advantage for me in that I don’t have to carry my laptop to meetings when I want to make notes.”


Paul Callaghan, Products Director:
For me the biggest benefit of the new MindGenius for iPad app is the fact that I can capture ideas anywhere. As a Products Director, I am constantly in meetings and away from my desk. With the new iPad app I am consuming maps a lot more, I can look at them anywhere and take notes. It’s so simple to use and gives me instant access to any of my maps.  Navigation through larger maps is sublime using map explorer and well ahead on anything else in the market.

Or read a few early reviews from the App store:

Great App ★★★★★ by - Version 1.0 - May 15, 2012
A long time user of Mindgenius and an avid iPad fan, this app is the best productivity app. It allows me to throw all manner of ideas down and structure them afterwards, enabling creativity rather than preventing it! Neil Stanbury


No nonsence mapping - MindGenius is Brilliant ★★★★★
by Dmacdav - Version 1.0 - May 13, 2012
So simple to use, so quick to create maps when customer facing, this is a great extension to the desktop application. MindGenius does all the hardwork for you - just type and hit the + key and it draws the map without you having to pull a branch here, there and everywhere. MindGenius is a high productivity tool that somehow makes it easy for you to work things out, think thing through, spot gaps, fix problems - I would find it really difficult to get through my volume of work without it Great that the iPad app stick to the desktops DNA in terms of rapid data entry and the explorer which not only allows you to quickly find info in a large map but CRUCIALLY allows you to focus on one element and hide everything else except context - I think its this clear space that frees your mind by providing absolute focus in context. So more effective than panning - which to me takes you to a cluttered space. Love it! Key to good use - keywords not sentences and think of sequence of events when developing maps


Great productivity tool ★★★★★ by Mary in Yorks - Version 1.0 - May 11, 2012
My favourite productivity tool comes to the iPad! I use it's big sister on a daily basis to help me manage projects, plan presentations, take notes in meetings, capture complex ideas... It works beautifully on the iPad and really is intuitive to use. You will wonder how you ever managed without it.


Fantastic app ★★★★★ by Callyp69 - Version 1.0 - May 11, 2012
Quick, slick and extremely useful for dumping your thoughts to explore and expand further. Also great for capturing and structuring information during meetings. Navigation through larger maps is sublime using map explorer and well ahead on anything else in the market. Well done to the team behind this product.



Best mind mapping tool for iPad ★★★★★ by Brokenworld - Version 1.0 - May 11, 2012
Best app I've seen for creating mind maps on the iPad!


MindGenius ★★★★★ by FunnFarm - Version 1.0 - May 11, 2012
I love this product. I have used it at work on my Windows computer and could not wait until they made it for Apple and iPad. My iPad is at every meeting I attend and MindGenius is running and I am using it to take notes and helping me organize my thoughts. I love that I can 'free flow' my thoughts and do not need to worry about what I write and if it is under the correct main branch because it is so easy to 'move' your notes and align your thoughts. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!


Прекрасно / Perfect ★★★★★ by iGremlin - Version 1.0 - May 10, 2012
Шикарное приложение для майндмэппинга! Знаком с с его РС-версией уже несколько лет. Всегда выручает в сложных ситуациях. Из приложений для построения интеллект карт - лучшее на сегодняшний день. Надеюсь, коммерческий вариант будет более ливерным в цене, чем вариант до РС.


편리합니다 ★★★★★ by ㅆㅆㅆㅆㅆㅃ - Version 1.0 - May 14, 2012
가볍고 편리합니다. 꼭 필요한 기능만 알맞게 갖춘 앱입니다. 강추!
