MindMeister iOS 4.0 Now Available

Please note: This article was last updated in 2010 so some of its content might be outdated. For the latest information on MindMeister for iOS, please visit mindmeister.com/apps

If you’re already using MindMeister for iOS mobile, you’ve probably noticed an update being pushed to you via iTunes. If you’ve not already done so, please update your MindMeister for iOS here.

We’d like to thank each and every beta tester that was involved in producing, what we believe, to be the best mobile mind mapping application on the market today. You’ve not only helped us address a few lingering issues, but also confirmed what we were after in this release: a massive drop in memory usage, making the application far less taxing on your iOS device.

Without getting too far into the technical details, we’ve rethought the mobile mind mapping process, and have taken advantage of iOS’s native Core Data model, bypassing our previous usage of XML based storage. In addition to increasing the performance and stability of the app, this new method also makes the synchronization with the live system faster and easier.

The full list of new features:

  • Redesigned user interface
  • Support for folders
  • Unified map list
  • Duplicate maps
  • Ability to delete maps online
  • Full background sync
  • Export in .mind format
  • Improved performance
  • Reduced memory usage by 80%
  • New sync architecture

Thanks again to all our beta testers, and should you experience any issues/problems with the update, you can always get in touch with us.

PS – And for the non-iOS mobile mind mappers out there, fret not, as we’re thiiiiiis close to submitting our MindMeister for Android to the Android Marketplace. Stay tuned!
