If you have an iPhone or an iPad, here’s a mind-mapping app that you should not miss.

Mind Manager for iPhone and iPad

Mindjet is a neat iOS app that you may use to create mind maps, capture notes or to brainstorm ideas on your iPhone or iPad. The app was earlier selling in the iTunes store for $8.99 but, with the upcoming launch of Mind Manager 2012, the mobile app is now available as a free download.

Getting started with Mindjet is easy. Tap and hold a topic to create a child or a sub-topic. Double-tap to change the formatting or the shape of a node. You may also include images, hyperlinks and additional text in the various nodes.

You can connect the Mindjet app to your Dropbox account and the mind map files created on the iOS device will automatically synchronize with your PC or Mac folder. Since the app uses the native .mmap format, mind maps created on the iOS device can also be edited using Mind Manager software on the desktop and vice-versa.

Other alternatives to the Mindjet app include MindMeister, iThoughts HD and MindNode.
