MindNode Next (now just MindNode 2) is our internal code name for an almost complete rewrite of the MindNode codebase. Our goal was to take the code from our iOS app and port it back to the Mac.
This was necessary as we never expected MindNode to grow into the app it is today and we never focused on performance in the early years.
Everything changed when we started to add an iOS version of MindNode. With an extremely basic first SDK and limited interactions on the iPhone we were forced to rethink and rewrite MindNode from scratch. As Apple added more features to iOS, our iOS version started to gain more features. Eventually it reached feature parity, but at the same time the code was a lot leaner and easier to maintain than the OS X counterpart.
We started to port our iOS code base back to the Mac as a side project and now, about three years later (a lot longer than initially planned), we are finally about to release this new version. Going forward we now have a shared codebase that is easier to work with and allows us to iterate more quickly and add new features more easily.
A new app and a new name
MindNode 2.0 for Mac is our new app for the Mac. It will replace MindNode Pro. As MindNode for Mac only supports Yosemite, we will leave MindNode Pro on the Mac App Store for a few more month. This will allow us to submit bug fixes for existing customers and ensures you can continue to use MindNode even if you don’t want to update to Yosemite. We also have a 1.10.3 update in the pipeline that will support importing the new MindNode file format.
MindNode 2.0 for Mac and MindNode 4.0 for iOS comes with many new features and unfortunately this means that we had to change the file format. We tried to make this transition as smooth as possible, but unfortunately transitions like this are never easy.
- Full Support: MindNode 4.0 for iOS, Mindnode 2.0 for Mac
- Partial Support (content is retained, only some styles are lost): MindNode 3.6 for iOS
- Import (new attributes and styles are lost, but all MindNode Pro attributes import fine): MindNode Pro 1.11.3
MindNode – Delightful Mind Mapping
MindNode makes mind mapping delightful. Mind maps are a visual representation of your ideas, starting with a central thought and growing from there. MindNode allows you to brainstorm, organize & share your thoughts in an intuitive way, so you can focus on the idea behind it. The clean interface lets you concentrate on generating and connecting thoughts, and an infinitely expanding canvas means that no matter how big or complicated your project gets, MindNode can keep up.
MindNode has helped students, artists and project managers to be more creative with less effort.
