I downloaded a trial version, and I created a simple mind map of family relationships. When I moved any item around, all of the other items attached to it also moved around the layout in unpredictable ways that really began to irritate me. I did not like that, for it made me feel that I had no control over my layout. I opened up my licensed copy of Mind Node Pro, and I duplicated the items. When I moved an item (box) in Mind Node Pro, only that item moved. The others stayed where they were, which is how I want the program to work. So, on first impression, I won't be investing in software that irritates me when I use it. I don't have the time or interest to figure out how to make xLine work in its default just like Mind Node Pro functions in its. I don't even know if it can. All I know is that is that if I get a bad first impression, I am not inspired to investigate further. Some things out to work right out of the box, and placing objects where you want them on the page ought to one of those fundamental features, it seems to me. It would not be fair to rate this program with any star(s) since I am unwilling to spend more time with it. So, I am merely making this brief comment on my first impression. If you try xLine out and it works for you, fine. Just keep in mind that if you can't find a way to control where you want you boxes of text to appear on the layout, then you need not stick with this program, for there are others which can do that with ease. If the program will allow you to get control of object placement on the layout, then you'll have to compare its features with its competitors to see if it matches them in value, or if it falls short in respect to the price requested.

I'M ONE OF THE CUSTOMERS THAT GOT RIPPED OFF TOO. I've started to read these technical jargon 'posts' that the company has used as it's excuse to invalidate the legitimate purchase of this software. The 'net' doesn't sleep, and reputation is EVERYTHING. We paid GOOD MONEY for the software, and it no longer works! PERIOD!!! Now, WHY would any reasonable person, PURCHASE IT AGAIN!?? I don't like being ripped off, and I TOO will continue to write, and leave negative reviews, You've doubled the price, with no consideration of EXISTING customers... Your CEO, is a dumb ass. and will wind up LOOSING more than he THINKS he'll gain. There are other apps, very similar, and ALOT more trustworthy! GOOD LUCK!

No three ways about it. Customers purchased licenses through an ADNX partner bundle and ADNX depreciated the licenses post purchase. In case you don’t get it, the customers are the victims here. So only two ways about it: Was the customer sold a full license by a partner unauthorised to do so, or was an authorised license depreciated by ADNX after the partner legitimately sold it? ADNX, simply publish for affected customer consideration the licensing agreements that were entered into between ADNX and its partners (such as Macupdate), as ADNX either approved the bundle sales of the original non time-limited version licenses, or it didn’t. Google KOINGO. Notwithstanding, the claim that ADNX “had no other choices” other than to cancel and re-issue time-limited subscription licenses after purchase is, quite simply, a lie. The licenses sold and purchased in partner bundles were NOT time limited, yet ADNX unilaterally chose to make them so after customer purchase. ADNX could have simply honored the licenses as sold and, by its own statement of claim below, taken a 0.2% hit on licensing income from the current version. That 0.2% loss was a “choice” ADNX declined. Instead, ADNX chose to rip-off the customers who legally purchased ADNX software in a bundle, and make the customer the victim by depreciating their licenses after they had made their purchase. That was the “choice” that ADNX made. As with the KOINGO fiasco, your disagreement with Macupdate does not give ADNX the right to unilaterally cancel or depreciate legally purchased licenses. The issue appears to be that either ADNX or its partners have not honored a licensing agreement, which has led to the victimisation of the customer (again, shades of Koingo). ADNX, were Macupdate or other partners acting in good faith in selling the bundled non time-limited licenses? If so, reinstate all licenses, unrestricted as they were when advertised and sold. Or was ADNX misled by Macupdate or other partners in terms of bundled licensing? If so, you have grounds (as does the customer). But you seem to have obtusely claimed everything BUT that the licenses were not valid as sold. I am on the fence, but it appears that either ADNX or its partners sold full licenses under false pretence. I honestly don’t care, except for the fact that what I purchased has now been stolen from me. ADNX can clear this, and its reputation, up by simply and clearly stating partners had no authority to bundle the full non time-limited licenses that ADNX subsequently revoked. However, if a partner had the authority, and ADNX decided to retrospectively revoke all pre-2016 licenses that had already sold in bundles, then ADNX needs to honor (and reinstate) those licenses, as they were not sold with a version license expiry date. Last, your claims that I created this account simply or solely to trash your company is libelous. I created this account some time ago, well before you revoked my licenses. Also, despite your earlier claims to the contrary, I have been in direct contact with ADNX to complain about your unilateral depreciation of my legally purchased non-time limited licenses. ADNX simply claimed the sale of time-limited licenses is the right of the developer. And that it is. However, the revocation ‘bait-and-switch’ of already purchased unrestricted version licenses to force them to a 12 month subscription is not. So, which is it? Did ADNX not honor the licenses it agreed that partners could sell, or did a partner not honor the licensing agreement it had with ADNX? Again, in case you don’t get it, the customer is the victim here. No three ways about it. Customers purchased licenses through an ADNX partner and ADNX depreciated those licenses after purchase. So only two ways about it: Were customers sold full licenses by ADNX partners when not authorised to do so, or were legally authorised licenses depreciated by ADNX after customers purchased them? Don’t fill your response with ten paragraphs of obtuse distraction. Just answer the question: Did I and other purchasers of ADNX-partner bundles: (a) Purchase an ADNX authorised non-time limited license as was advertised, or (b) Purchase a license that was not authorised to be sold by ADNX. Thank you

You are still stuck in your ideas ! It's too complicated to explain to end users the technical reasons of the issue because the issue was related to our license/update system. To make it simple: we had a system different than other developers. Developed in house. Macupdate created the mess because the macupdate software automatically updated apps without providing the correct information to users. Then, they became upset missing an essential information. Again, you can continue to trash us as you seem to take a great pleasure on it but we know we have done nothing bad to our customers. Developers have the right to charge a price for new versions of apps. Our update system was not perfect but no needs to write false statements. We are done trying to explain. You can see clearly how evil people can be....just because we were using a different license/update system than others. For some case: some licenses not updated were also disabled because we stopped a dedicated server used by a very small amount of customer. Even big companies do that. Mostly happens in games.

To see things in a bigger picture, you are talking about a problem from 2014. From two years ago now. It never happened after as everybody learn from mistake. Except may be macupdate team.
Also, if customers were always honest, developers will not have to create a system to control the use of licenses. So it's not as simple as your simple comments. Developers have to check licenses and sometimes it's more complicated than planned. Do not see anything else ! it's the core of the problem, not our honesty.

One important point. With our new 2016 license system rewritten from scratch, we already said that all disabled licenses in the past have been extended to one more year (conversion needed) so your long statements are no longer accurate and only related to the past. For us extending these 0.2% licenses was the right think to do. Just check your license on our website. We tried to explain in previous posts but it was not enough clear apparently. Still not happy and mad????? at least customers will see how you are stuck in your ideas and our efforts.

Also, everybody will believe that you have not created an account just to trash us ! Anonymous name and posts just for us...... at least, you are funny on this point. :-)

All very interesting about the Macupdate adware, but I think you will find most Macupdate users are aware of this travesty. But more importantly, you (ADNX) stole my license. ADNX has repeatedly stated it will no longer post here. Yet it continues to repeatedly post, forcing all comments other than ADNX’s off the landing page. Below the landing page is a minefield of disgruntled customers who had their legally purchased licenses revoked without warning by ADNX. No licences “expired”, as you claim. They were unilaterally (and without warning) REVOKED. By ADNX. I did NOT upgrade my software from the whole-of-version software that I legally purchased. ADNX conversely, revoked my license, and then stated “A new license is mandatory to use the new 2016 versions of our apps”. To repeat, I did not upgrade my software. I was not using the “new 2016 versions’ of ADNX’s apps. But when the software phoned home to ADNX earlier this year, the company unilaterally revoked my whole-of-version licences that had been legitimately purchased in Macupdate Bundles, and tried to force an all-or-nothing transfer to a time-limited 12 month ‘subscription’ license. Without warning, ADNX revoked all pre-2016 licences forcing them to re-register, and on re-register, sought to force a 12 month subscription on any licences previously purchased in bundles. That is reprehensible conduct. As I stated earlier, this reeks of the Macupdate-Koingo licensing fiasco. And ADNX needs to immediately restore full unlimited licences to all software legally purchased through Macupdate bundles.

Dear anonymous user, you can continue to be mad forever but we had no other choices. Our reply :

1. The license provided to partners were time limited. it's not forbidden to sell time limited licenses ! The problem is that the information was not provided correctly. That's all ! it's the core of the problem.
2. We sent multiple emails to the very small amount of customers concerned by this problem (before to revoke the license). Sorry if you didn't get the email, but it's a fact, we sent it. No need to blame us on this point and most customers were able to understand it ! A minority was extremely mad like you.
3. We had to disable a license server because of the cost. The license server was used by 0.2% of our customers using these cheap licenses. We didn't find any technical solutions at this time. We thought that it was not a big deal but for these customers it was. We already apoligzed many times.
4. We fixed the problem by offering an extension of one year of the license to these customers. It was nice of us as we got only $1 from partners selling our licenses.

Again, these cheap licenses were time limited and we had the right to sell them. It was just a communication problem. Just a fact, it we were able to do more, we will have done it. Our mistake was to work with these partners and the cost of this mistake was huge for us. So yes, you can be mad forever and not listening to our points. Customers are the king.

We think that extending a time limited license was the right thing to do. If you do not believe so, it's your right. Again, it was only a communication problem and you do not see our efforts to fix it. You are just stuck on your own ideas. Just a fact.

Just another fact: this anonymous customer is not accepting our apolize and way to fix a problem. He's very stuck on his own ideas. He created an account on this website just in order to trash our company and business. He do not care about people or jobs behind a company. Very selfish attitude.

UPDATED STATEMENT FROM ADNX When people are not happy, they say it. When they are happy, they rarely say it. You can read some bad reviews about our policy with our licenses on this page. It's a fact, we disappointed some customers: less than 0.3% actually but they had a strong voice using this service to express their bad mood. Talking about facts that were not even accurate. What we learned about this experience? Any opinion matters and customer satisfaction is always a top priority even if the customer is wrong or had a bad experience because of partners. What we had done to fix the issue? We offered an extended license for one more year to all licenses with problems. It only concerned 0.3% of our customer base but we had to do it. We apologised many times and we can do it again here if it was not enough. What was the origin of the problem? It's too long to explain the technical points and most people will not understand but the mess was created by macupdate service and they never apologise for it. Our main fault was to trust macupdate services. We tried to fix the issues in many ways and may be not the correct ones at the beginning. Every human learn from mistakes and can make mistakes. What do you think about macupdate ? You can see below this post an interesting article from a blogger that you should read. Macupdate service seems to install adwares without your authorisation. Our last message will be for developers: do not trust macupdate team. They will sell you the idea that you can make a lot of money with them. It's just false and we have more than 5 years of experiences with them. If you want : try it one time one of their service and you will see how disappointing the level of sales will be. This service is already almost dead because of the success of the Mac App Store. We only got 1.3 % visitors per month from macupdate website. It's nothing. Anyway, we wish good luck to macupdate. They never replied to us and we think it's just weird. We just think that they should treat developers with more respect. They have a business because of us. THE CONCLUSION Any human learn from mistakes, any human do mistakes. Even the ones behind macupdate ;-)

MACUPDATE USERS SHOULD READ THIS INTERESTING BLOG POST Has MacUpdate fallen to the adware plague? https://blog.malwarebytes.org/cybercrime/2015/11/has-macupdate-fallen-to-the-adware-plague/ In other words, it seems that MacUpdate, long considered to be one of the only remaining trustworthy download aggregation sites for the Mac, has succumbed to the same plague that has ruined most of the others: adware. Following Mr. Urdaneta’s hints, I sought out the Skype page on the MacUpdate site and downloaded the app. The result was a file named Skype Installer.dmg, which seems legit on first glance. However, opening this disk image file results in a MacUpdate installer, very similar to the adware-riddled custom installers used by sites like Download.com and Softonic. Sure enough, when running this installer, it will display a license agreement that the user is likely to click right past, giving the installer the right to change the browser’s settings and install a “Search-Assist” browser extension: This is behavior exhibited by many adware installers these days, and this particular license agreement is identical to the ones being used by the InstallCore adware. And sure enough, once the installer is finished, an InstallCore browser extension ends up installed in Safari: This extension, like all InstallCore extensions, does not use the aforementioned “Search-Assist” name. This one is named “SearchTrust”, but InstallCore extensions have used a variety of other unusual names, such as LadyMcCannon, AtheneTemple, JeffKekko and Eladiolus. Others have reported that the MacUpdate Installer app will also install MacBooster, one of many unnecessary “cleaning” apps that are foisted onto users by these adware installers. The full behavior of such installers is not always clear, as factors such as when you run the installer or what network you’re on can result in different behavior. Download.com (formerly VersionTracker) and Softonic have both been engaging in this kind of behavior for some time, and for this reason, Mac experts have been recommending against the use of such sites. Although it’s generally recommended to only download software from the developer’s site (such as skype.com in the case of Skype), some have continued to recommend MacUpdate, which hasn’t engaged in such behavior… until now. It appears MacUpdate may need to be added to the boycott list. The oft-repeated advice for those looking for software to download bears repeating once again: only download apps from the Mac App Store or from the official developer’s website. This is certainly not a guarantee, unfortunately. For example, the official site for FileZilla distributes an adware-riddled installer. However, downloading from the developer’s site does minimize adware problems. Update (Nov. 3, 2015): It turns out that this is now a “feature” of MacUpdate. If you are a paid member of MacUpdate and are logged in, you won’t see the adware installers. If you are not logged in, you will see them. This is evidently configurable in the profile preferences on a paid MacUpdate account, though not having such an account, I can’t provide specifics. I’ve also been told that the MacUpdate Desktop app will download the real app rather than the adware installer, though I’m unclear as to whether that only applies to a paid copy of MacUpdate Desktop.

DO NOT PURCHASE: (a) any MACUPDATE bundles, or (b) ADNX or KOINGO software. Lesson learned. License legally purchased (part of a bundle). License illegally cancelled by ADNX (and, earlier, Koingo), and offered to convert to a one year subscription. The program ‘phoned home’ to ADNX and ADNX revoked the license. (a) If you have any ADNX product, DO NOT LET IT CONTACT THE ADNX SITE. (b) if you do not have any ADNX products, DO NOT BUY FROM ADNX. Your license will be illegally cancelled. As this appears to be a repeat of the Macupdate-Koingo license fiasco: (c) DO NOT PURCHASE ANY MACUPDATE BUNDLES if you want to be assured the licenses will be honored. To date, both ADNX and KOINGO have dishonored their licenses sold through MACUPDATE bundles. Lesson learned.

ADNX OFFICIAL STATEMENT - THANKS TO READ One year ago, we asked macupdate to respect european laws and to no longer publish our apps on this directory. They refused and never replied to us. Why we asked for that? We were mad on them because they created a software that created a mess with our customer base and our license system. It's too technical to explain. At least, we were expecting apologies. We got nothing. It's a good way to treat developers? Macupdate is making money with our products. They should respect us. A very small minority of customers, mostly users or members of macupdate service were publishing false information, bad comments against us and we can do nothing about it. We tried to explain but these people were stuck in their ideas. It's so easy to demolish a company on the internet ! Because we are french, we had a hard time to explain correctly things. We are sorry about that. From now, we will no longer publish any other comment to this website. Based on our stats, only 2% of Mac users are coming to our site from macupdate. It's a dead web/service. Only a minority of passionate Mac users use it. The developers section of macupdate never work correctly, it's full of bugs and they never reply to request of developers. Just a fact. We are no longer made at them, the fight is now a old story. The most important is that we are very sorry of the experience of our customers. As a result, we no longer work with any partner. We learned something. For the best experience, always deal directly with developers and at least, try to trust them when they explain something. We are a very honest team, loved by thousand of customers worldwide since more than 15 years. We care a lot about our customers, feedback and the quality of our products. Good luck to macupdate and their passionate members. If they both want to publish false or bad information about our products, it's their choice and total liberty. Finally, only the bad face of internet and humans.

Opinions from our customers: It’s not bad mind mapping app ! Various shapes can be assigned to a branch, e.g. rectangle, round rect, oval, pill, etc or none - There are seven different layout options for your map. Which is great! - Individual nodes, lines can be colored - I can add multiple lines to a node - Notes, comments can be assigned to a node . Nutella I have tried many apps doing similar task and they were much better and customisable in terms of linking nodes and more. I think the price is reasonable for anyone just need a simple mind mapping tool. Khaled Muy buena interfaz y su funcionamento es magnifico , salvo en el caso en el que tienes que editar un mind map , hay que andar con mucho cuidado al pulsar la tecla de borrado ya que en según que situaciones puede borrar todo el trabajo lo cual es un auténtico fastidio. Vandroide Application d’une excellente ergonomie, de plus: prix abordable, en français et synchro simple avec la version iPad. Très pratique à utiliser sauf pour textes un peu longs. Ritonbelette xLine est simple d’usage et assez intuitif. Il offre pas mal de possibilités et de design iMac Excellent design, function and top value for money. We have been searching for a mind mapping app that was both Mac and iOS compatible - xLine works equally as well on iOS !! Highly recommended A+++++ 22moo I’m looking for this kind of app for a long time. Easy to use, easy to change the background color or the words size! And the most amazing thing is, I can put icons (changing the icon color is available) into the column. Fantastic app! Dashper Nice app! will be useful during study Lyasota I have tried to find a mind mapping program that syncs between the Mac & iOS versions for so long. THEN I tried xLine ... a beautiful program that syncs perfectly using iCloud, provides notes, an outline and several ways to make the map distinctive, etc. It looks & behaves like a Mac program! I hope this program continues to grow & improve. I’ve had a few issues with sorting the outline manually. I am told you can do that easily on the Mac and will soon be able to do so on the iPad. I probably need to work with it a little more to understand how that works. It would also be nice to have a few more formatting options; Hopefully those improvements will follow with future updates. For now if you are working on the Mac & on the iPad, this is the only mind mapping program I can fully recommend. Rob Thank you for developing this simple and efficient software Fly5 I wrote a negative review about version 2.0.2 but they have worked to fix everything for version 2.0.3. The support team did contact me and was able to work to find the issue and fix it for this version. Well done. A great Mindmapping application. Jared I like products this company since 2008. Good job!!! Thanks. Doreslini This program has an interesting approach to mindmapping, particularly with the side panel displaying the contents of the mindmap in outline form. Joe
