MindNode 2 review: Makes Mac brainstorming a breeze

J.R. Bookwalter | June 30, 2015
The human brain may be great at coming up with ideas, but it's not always efficient at organizing such information in any meaningful way. That's where a technique known as mind mapping comes into play, extracting information from your cranium and presenting it in a visual way that makes sense to others.

Owners of the iOS version also have the option to share documents in a more interactive way through MyMindNode, a cloud service that allows anyone with a share link to view interactive mind maps on a web browser. Once uploaded, viewers can zoom, fold nodes, download in MindNode format, or embed HTML elsewhere. It's a slick option, but setting up a free account unfortunately requires purchasing the mobile app before it can be used on the Mac version.

MindNode 2 caps off an otherwise stellar update with more comprehensive print features--documents can now be printed as either mind map or outline layouts, with the ability to optionally split each main node onto a separate page for cleaner output.

Bottom line

MindNode 2 takes what was already great about the Pro version, supercharging it with new features, themes, and other options that make it the best version yet.
