MindNode for iOS Update to 3.5

October 24, 2014 by Gabe | [mmd] |

You really have to go out of your way if you want to use a bad concept mapping application for iOS. It's a pretty great time to be a mapping nerd.

MindNode 3.5 is out with a bunch of great features. Not only does it now support the grande phones, it's received some serious redesign for the pickers and controls. The Font options are just crazy in this version. There are so many fonts available (including downloadable options) that they added a search bar to find the one you want. Amazing work is being done in the class of iOS apps.

    Just a quick reminder for nerds that installed Yosemite. You probably need to reinstall a bunch of Python modules. If you use Paramiko, then you should also install the XCode command line tools first. You can install Paramiko and the dependent Crypto library manually, or through Easy_Install.

    After moving to the released version of Yosemite from one of the many GM candidates1 I started seeing a console warning that was hard to research. I saw it a lot. Hundreds of times a minute this message would appear in the console:

    Give me a good concept mapping app and I'll keep myself busy for hours. iThoughts just added a really nice way to create attractive rainbow colored maps and I think it's great.

    That's pretty cool. You can set the start color and let it make something great ...

    I'm enjoying making Nerds on Draft a little too much. On episode 3, Jeff and I sample two of the classic Belgian-style beers and talk about the conflict between sweating the details and knowing when to say no.

    I think the show turned out great, but then again, I ...

    From The Register:

    Spotlight phones home in OS X Yosemite, version 10.10, and it is enabled by default: it can be switched off, but with Apple insisting that it now takes people's privacy seriously, the software has raised some eyebrows.

    Count my eyebrows as being raised too. It ...
