I cannot say enough good things about MindNode Pro. It's simple, beautiful and effective. It may not have every feature, but it seems this is because the developer is proceeding in a very apple-like way; realizing that you don't need to cater to absolutely everybody all the time, and adding features only when they are needed. the other thing worth praising is that the demo version, rather than being limited by time, is limited to 20 nodes (and a watermark when printing?). I think this sets the threshold just right. There's no time pressure, so you can happily use it till you outgrow the demo. so with that said, here are some of my humble feature ideas: How about text fields that can be placed anywhere on their own or linked with node/s, that can be shown or hidden easily. I often want to explain something or comment on a specific node but have that text only show up when you want. At the moment you can share with devices on the same wifi network which is pretty neat. Imagine how useful it would be if your mind maps were stored in some sort of cloud. You could hash out some ideas on your iphone, get home, open mindnode on your main computer and automatically have it sync any changes or new mind maps you created when you were on the move. Or how about having more than one person working on the same document? Huzzah. I'd be curious what the developer thinks of that.

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).

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

From the MindNode FAQ:

What can I do with the free MindNode version?
Some people prefer to work on just one device, or can only afford to buy either the iOS, or the macOS version of MindNode. And yet it is helpful to have a way to view and display documents on more than one sort of device.

The free version allows you to do just that. You can view your documents with all the elements and navigate through it, view notes and fold/unfold nodes. You can also export your documents in all the available formats, to text, PDF etc.

Hey Sandra, the app is listed as "Free" because that is how the Mac App Store lists it. We do add a note in the description that it contains in-app purchases.
