Back in January, popular mind mapping software MindNode for Mac got a new set of outlining features. Today those handy tools are arriving on iPad and iPhone with the ability to add, edit, and remove nodes right from the hierarchical view.

The MindNode 2021.2 update for iPad and iPhone includes side-by-side outlining with mind mapping as well as a full-screen outline option for a more versatile experience.

With outlining, you can add, remove, indent, and outdent nodes directly as well as dragging and dropping to reorganize in the hierarchical view. And the feature on iPhone and iPad works with touch, trackpad, external keyboard, and Apple Pencil.

The feature on iOS/iPadOS also comes with a refreshed design:

The outline has been updated with a fresh visual design. The new, linear representation makes it easier to distinguish node levels and identify the structure of your thoughts.

The new outline functionality on MindNode for iPhone and iPad is part of the Plus subscription that runs $2.49/month or $19.99/year. But MindNode is a free download from the App Store to try out before committing to the premium version.
