    You lose most of the benefits of using mind maps by using a computer along with being slower.

    Most of the benefits occur because you create it yourself and then optionally reproduce it on a schedule to ensure you learnt stuff and don't forget it.


    Perfect for stupid uni first year assignments that force you to create a mind map. I'm looking at you CUC107!


    Looks good but is clearly a promotion for the new subscription version 2.
    Description of deal could include “celebrating the release of the new subscription version the old version is temporarily free…”
    Price goes from $2.99 outright to $2.99 per month for the new version!
    That’s a third of the price of office for a niche product.
