What’s new in version 2022.3.3

Updated on Oct 07 2022

  • Fixed a bug where zooming the outline font size with keyboard shortcuts would fail while editing text in the outline
  • Updated menu item "Copy Link for Opening Document" to no longer include the document title (enabling creating keyboard shortcuts for the menu item)

  • Fixed jumping width when resizing image attachment
  • Fixed wrong node ordering after reattaching nodes

Using Mind Node for years, no a subscription model which I do not like but even worse the last two version rendered the app nearly unusable for me. Now sub nodes created from a main node detach automatically if you try to drag them to far from main node, super annoying as it constantly happens now something which took a second often takes me a minute. Also clicking on nodes not always activates them anymore need to click on different part and often a few times. How can I downgrade????

This is a great app and I’ve used it for some projects ... I happily paid upgrade fees every time a new version came out, but I will bail on the subscription model. While Pages and Numbers are not as intuitive, for the type of mind mapping I do both are quite enough. It’s not about being cheap, it’s about owning software and not wanting to rent it. I’m all for supporting app development but between kickstarter campaigns and subscriptions that some developers introduce it’s just getting out of hand in my opinion.

Further Clarification.

The initial download allows users to 'unlock' a Two Week Trial for the full version. After that time, it reverts to what's described in the FAQ for the free version. (See neeklamy's post below).

COSTS:
• Upgrade from MindNode 2 = $14.99
• Full version purchase = $39.99

There is a new version MindNode 5 paid upgrade for macOS (and iOS). They are free to download with In-App purchase for full-version unlock, or a free 14-day trial. Former users get a lower upgrade price. Without payment, it serves as a viewer-app. More info here:

This app is delightful. However developers take their time to deliver bug fixes which sometimes can be annoying -- and I'm thinking about a specific Preferences issue that made impossible to customize the app and lasted for well two or three months. Other than that I highly recommend it, it's my daily driver for dumping ideas into a canvas.

I use this app routinely and recommend it without hesitation. There are several apps that allow you to create mind maps and you should look at them all on their websites to see which one may suit your needs. I have found this one works simply, elegantly and reliably. It also has the added benefit of syncing to iOS devices that also run an iOS version of the app.

I'm very disappointed with this developer not offering a reduced and fair price to long-time users. The $20 price that is the same for old and new customer alike rubs me wrong. There is no loyalty shown to those who have supported this app with reviews and recommendations to prospective buyers. I like the former version and may stay with it, or "invest" in one of the other highly rated apps in this genre. The rating is based on my experience with the old version; and my disdain for this developer's pricing policies.

Cannot update. The app constantly crashes when I try to download and install the latest version (non-AppStore!). Sadly there’s only a demo version available on the developer’s site. What gives? How can I update my registered MindNode Pro?

Really nice and easy to use! I regret they abandoned the colored icons, after version 1.8 — luckily, not all the dev's feel like entering the grey and dull world… ;-) One thing I miss, compared to other tools such as Xmind or MindManager, is the ability to attach notes to a node: you can find a workaround by folding/unfolding a node, or attaching an external text file to each node, but it's not as convenient. Except for that, it's so amazingly easy to use that no other product gets close to it on that matter!
