It will help you create an imprint in your mind. The features which make it an useful app are that you can add images, shapes, branches.

There are many note making apps, but I personally feel that remembering is more easier when you have images. It is like a pictographic representation of notes. You can create a map connecting all your thoughts.

How To Create Mind Map:
Creating mind maps is easy. The app also provides online tutorial to show the process of creating maps. The interface is neat and simple. There is only a toolbar at the top of the interface. You can create your map using that itself. Look at the screenshot below to see the toolbar and it’s detail.
The toolbar is self explanatory. The tools which are specific to this app are adding a branch, adding a shape or an image into the page for creating. You will have to start with creating a new map. You will see a box like the one in the screenshot below.
Here you need to mention the name of the map you want to create. You can choose a shape or an image to start with. Then clicking on OK the shape or image will situate itself in the page. You can click on it and place it wherever you want to. Once you have placed the shape or the image you can add a branch, shape or image from there itself instead of using the toolbar just by right clicking on the shape.
See the screenshot to get a better idea:
Now you add a branch and click on the place from where you want the branch to start from. Thereon you can keep expanding the map by adding minute details about the topic you are creating the map for.
You can change colours of the branch, shape outline, Image outline. There are many interesting shapes available in this app. There are also options for changing the font style.
It is great for creating travel plans or for students to memorize their topics. Because it is believed that when there are images involved then it imprints on the mind much faster.
