We’re pleased to announce that the MindMeister application for iPad is now available from the Apple App Store.
Based on our award-winning web interface, the MindMeister iPad interface has been designed to specifically leverage the iPad’s large screen surface, ultimately making mobile mind mapping more convenient, productive, and fun.
The MindMeister for iPad app is designed to function seamlessly with our web-based online service. Based on a completely re-written sync API, users that are out of range of, or have switched their wireless connection off, can still sketch out their ideas, formulate plans, etc. on their iPad. Once back in range of an internet connection, the MindMeister iPad app will synchronize these changes with the users’ browser based MindMeister account. The MindMeister iPad app is the only mind mapping application on the market today that offers this vital function.
“For the iPad version of MindMeister, we really wanted to revamp the way we approach a mobile version of our web interface. By utilizing the unique features of the iPad, we’re happy to give users a more refined, stable, and ultimately more enjoyable MindMeister experience on the go,” explains our CTO Till Volmer.
Naturally, the MindMeister iPad app can be used as a stand-alone application and does not require a MindMeister account to function. Whether used in conjunction with our web-based account our not, all MindMeister iPad app users will have access to a number of our familiar features including:
- Sharing mind maps directly from the device
- Easily creating and editing child and sibling nodes
- Adding icons, colors, and styles
- Full dragging and dropping support
- Zooming in and out
- Adding maps to favorites
When used in conjunction with an online MindMeister account, users also receive the following additional benefits:
- Synchronization of iPad creations
- Access to our patent pending Time Machine function and unlimited undo/redo
- Import from MindManager, Freemind and text files
- Export as MindManager, Freemind, MS Word, PDF and image files
We realize this has been a long time coming, and we’d like to thank each and every one of you who’ve commented and questioned the app’s progress. We took a bit longer than expected in releasing the app to the world, but also produced a completely new sync API in the process, ultimately resulting in a much more stable mobile MindMeister experience.
The MindMeister app for iPad is now available to iPad users everywhere for $7.99 directly from the iTunes Store.
