Mind mapping apps fall into two camps:
• true mind mapping - as first described by Tony Buzan in his book called "Use Your Head"
• pseudo mind mapping - a chart where text is horizontal and usually in bubbles with automatic layout
Connected Mind is the only app (other than Buzan's own iMindMap) that aims to support true mind mapping. The key difference is that true mind maps are unique, personalised and distinctive, which helps make them memorable. In contrast, pseudo mind maps all tend to look very similar.
