MindGenius by Connie

Name of App: MindGenius

Cost: Free

Device/s used: iPad

What was good about this tool? 
The ability to form a mind map on an electrical advise, and more specifically an iPad is really useful. You can keep it together with the rest of your work so nothing gets lost. There is no drawing involved, to add a 'sibling' or 'child' branch you just click and type. This app stores all of your mind maps and to create a new one you just press the 'plus' button. 

What was bad about this tool?
However I would still rather draw by hand as this gives you more flexibility. MindGenius does not allow you to change the colour or shape of the branches and minimal movement in where they actually are on the page. Therefore as it is free it is good to have but i would not use it all of the time.
