MindNode helps you connect your thoughts and clarify your ideas. Try a free 2-week trial of the full app.

A clean interface and focused feature set enable you to develop your project. Start with a thought, then take your project from first steps, to the next level, and into action.


  • Capture your thoughts
    Whether as words, images, links, tasks, or extended notes, capture your thoughts in any form. Don't worry about order and importance. You're just getting started.
    Features like Quick Entry make adding different thoughts easy and intuitive. Smart Layout means you don't have to worry about how your document looks. MindNode will always make sure it is readable and beautiful.

  • Explore the connections
    Your document reflects your changing understanding as you add more thoughts. Connect, reconnect and detach as often as you like. Folding branches to focus on one thought makes it even easier to explore an idea in-depth. Discover unexpected connections and create something unique.

  • Organize your idea
    MindNode helps clarify the context and connections from one thought to another. Add individual styles to text and nodes to understand complex information at a glance. Outline view gives a new perspective on the flow of ideas.

  • Share your project
    Present or export your document. Beautiful layouts and themes make sharing a MindNode document with your team or family a pleasure. Send tasks to Reminders or OmniFocus. Export your project as OPML, FreeMind or text outline to continue work on your project. Using our free web service myMindNode, you can share your documents with your colleagues, no matter the devices they are on.


    "The app keeps out of your way, so it doesn't interrupt your thought processes."

    New York Times

    "Mind Node totally saved a client presentation today. Thank you. The speed with which I could translate my ideas to a flow... amazing."

    Robert, Interaction Designer

    "You have no idea how useful this Quick Entry feature is for a novel I'm planning. Over-organization in the planning stage has been my Achilles heel. Thank you! Truly best in class."

    Eric A. Bowers, Author
