    I've used both the MindMaple product for my PC and their MindMapleHD app for my iPad. Both have worked great for me and the kids in my classroom. It sure allows not only me, but also my students to be more organized in and out of the classroom. It's also amazing how quickly a bunch of 12 year olds have picked up on mind mapping software! I hate to admit it, but when I was their age, I would have been one lost child!

    SynciOS looks interesting and I may give it a try, but I am guessing it will not be quite as intuitive as iTunes, which I know like the back of my hand by now!

    Share as Image is interesting despite the limitations.
    And if you happen to prefer more minimalistic GUI, Blumind is a good alternative to Maplemind.

    SyncIOS looks interesting, but what makes it better than iTunes?

      it's an alternative ). Some would consider it better, but some would still prefer to use iTunes no matter what.
