When it comes to mind mapping on Apple hardware, there are lots of great options available. But two apps rise above the others as the true cream of the crop: MindNode, with a stunningly beautiful user interface, and iThoughts, with powerful features and impressive flexibility.
Both of these apps are great, but they take very different approaches to mind mapping that can make it difficult to choose which one is right for you. In this post, we compare these two apps side-by-side, using the following criteria:
- Overall Design
- Ease of Use
- Data Portability
Let’s start by looking at the design.
When the editing demands of photographers exceed the capabilities of solutions like Lightroom, they turn to dedicated pixel editors like Photoshop.
Photoshop has been the king of the hill in this space for many years, having had decades to establish its dominance. While it remains the most powerful option — and a great choice for anyone who’s interested in exploring it — we believe that Affinity Photo is an easier, quicker solution for most users.
Affinity Photo offers most of the same capabilities for less money, and is equally at home on macOS and iPadOS — a claim that Photoshop still can’t make, despite its recent re-release on iPadOS.
In this Mindfulness Monday post, Executive Editor Mike Schmitz shares his moment of clarity with intentional technology use and how he continues the fight to shift expectations around email.
One of my favorite things about Drafts is that it’s so easy to capture thoughts there, and with the assistance of the arrange mode (that even works on a line by line basis) you can really get your content organized. But after you’ve done this, I often end up wanting to see this as a mind map in MindNode, which can be a little fiddly to do manually.
