MindNode is one of the most popular Mac/iOS apps for visual brainstorming and mind mapping and the Mac version has received nice update today with new outline features. The new capabilities make it easy add, edit, and remove nodes right from the hierarchical view.

MindNode version 2021.1 for Mac brings side by side outlining and mind mapping for a more versatile experience. The outline view has also received a design update.

For outlining, you can now add, remove, indent, and outdent nodes directly as well as dragging and dropping to reorganize in the hierarchical view.

This highly requested feature from MindNode users will be very welcome and will also be coming to iPad and iPhone in the future.

The new outline features on MindNode for Mac are part of the Plus subscription that runs $2.49/month or $19.99/year. You can try MindNode Plus free for 14-days and there’s also a totally free version if you want longer than two weeks to get your feet wet with MindNode.
