Fun and Memorable
Connected Mind makes serious learning fun and memorable for everyone by radically changing computer based mind mapping and brainstorming.

Revolutionary free hand drawing
Using Connected Mind’s revolutionary freehand drawing features you can quickly create unique mind maps that are very easy to maintain. It’s just like using pen and paper but better. Connected Mind takes full advantage of touch interfaces, which are perfect for the hand-drawn approach. This gives you complete control over the layout of your maps. You can easily include images and shapes or select from a rainbow of colors and fonts to personalize your maps. Simple touch screen commands provide direct and intuitive control. Tap anywhere on a branch to change or resize, press down to reposition the branch on the canvas or press the end of the branch to quickly relink it to a new parent.

Safe, secure and available everywhere
Backing up your mind maps in the Connected Mind cloud is a breeze, free of charge and ensures your masterpieces always stay safe and secure. Once in the cloud you can continue to play with your favorite mind maps on any other android tablet or phone, iPad or a windows/mac/chromebook computer that has Chrome installed.

What is Mind Mapping?
Mind mapping helps you learn to visually organize and link concepts, ideas, words and images around a central topic. In today’s world we suffer from information overload. Connected Mind provides you with a creative way to structure the information so that it makes sense to you personally.

Helping students learn
When you learn a new concept, you add it to the appropriate place in the mind map. In order to do that, you have to analyze the patterns, structures, and connections of concepts within your topic. This promotes better understanding, memorization, and recall, as well as the ability to apply knowledge in new situations. Connected Mind offers enough flexibility to maintain interest and encourage curiosity while still providing the structure that keeps you on track as a learner.

Landscape on mobile? Good app. I have the paid version. Mind mappings are meant to be landscape is there any way I can rotate the blank sheet at the beginning? I seem to be stucl in portrait mode which is restrictive. Also more space would be lovely! Thanks.

Good but could be better Easy to use and laid out well. I wish there was an option to add arrows, write free hand, and type text in a box next to the diagram.

Excellent App! The only reason why I have it 4 stars instead of 5 is because the image features are currently limited. The developer is very open to feedback and responsive though. Best overall mind mapping app in my opinion

Great app as is (also request a new features) ==TOC== 1) request features 2) User Review 1) request feature A shape that links to another mindmap. I can see that collapse branches can be tricky in this kind of app. Would it be possible to include an option for a shape to link to another Mindmap. So clking shape opens the linked Mindmap. 2) User Review Easy to use, customize colors of the shapes, background and branches. Rearranging is easy and definitely fun to make Mindmaps with this app. Also has Dropbox support.
