  1. I recommend adding a full screen mode for phones. On a smaller screen the UI + banner takes up too much space, especially if you want to take a screenshot. Even auto-hide nav bar would be helpful. I’m telling people, this is the best mindmap app for Android.

  2. Please can you assist- have downloaded your great app to my phone & i wish to send myself a copy of my small mind map diagram as a picture jpg file. How do i do this been pulling my hair out would appreciate your assistance kind regards Paul

  3. If it’s a small map, you might consider adjacent screenshots, and stitch them with some graphics programme – for now?

  4. Hi,

    my phone had currently a shutdown, and now all files of SchematicMind are deleted! Do you know how to fix this? Are they automatically stored somewhere?



    • Hi Lilly, I’m sorry for your loss of data. Unfortunatly there is no backup specific for SchematicMind, so I’m afrad that there is no way for schematicMind to recover your files.

  5. Really nice and easy to learn mindmap-tool. I have 2 minor suggestions though:

    1: The projects should only boot up in Home-mode if the user tapped the Home-button as last action before exiting the app. In all other instances the map should boot up in Overview-mode. At least I think so.
    2: The projects should boot up in non-edit-mode requiring tapping an Edit-toggle in order to change/add something. My maps sometimes gets accidentally jumbled-up then I scroll and navigate through them.
    3: Consider making the thought-bubbles considerably smaller if there’s no text in them. So small that they just look like bolded crossing-points.
