Time to XMind on Phone

Record Ideas & Outline Quickly

An idea in a flash is an important source of inspiration in life and at work, and therefore it’s better for people to have a handy tool on phone to record their ideas in an organized fashion. The best tool here to help brainstorming and recording ideas is XMind!

For example, a manager needs to give a speech in front of the company and has some ideas/quotes burst out in mind on the subway back home. In this case, recording and outlining with XMind on phone using a mind map structure is definitely easier to later collect, reorganize, and expand upon speech ideas versus using a simple note page of the Notes App on iPhone.

Take Audios Notes Whenever Necessary

Audio Note feature enables us to annotate topics without typing any texts. This feature on XMind mobile allows users to take important notes in a faster and more intuitive method.

Imagine you are sitting at a product meeting and using a timeline or mind map structure on XMind to take audio notes of brainstorming ideas and product discussion between colleagues. Audio note in each topic box is automatically organized - such a convenient way to later replay the audios on phone and summarize the meeting minutes!

Review Maps Anytime & Do Small Edits

After syncing files across multiple platforms via iCloud or 3rd party drives, XMind users can access, review, and edit their mind maps easily with phones at any time. Frequent review of mind maps serves as a visual stimulus and benefits intentional memorization. It also facilitates the editing process by mirroring most features of the desktop onto the mobile system.

Let’s say if a biology major studies with XMind on desktop, he has his lecture notes transferring onto mind maps which are synced and copied to the XMind App on his iPhone as well. Any time fragments while commuting, waiting for lunch, or taking the elevator is well used by going over his well-made biology maps. The result is that he has spent less time but memorized the knowledge better in a logical manner. And if he locates a missing part of notes in class and wants to add immediately, it only takes him less than 20 seconds to edit the original map on his phone without having to open the computer.
