Description

At last it is possible to create a mind map as individual and easy to imprint on your mind as one drawn by hand on paper. The mind maps you create with Connected Mind are even better as you can easily include images and shapes and you have a whole rainbow of colors and a selection of fonts at your disposal.

This app is also cloud connected, allowing your to store your maps in the cloud on Google App Engine against your existing Google account. You can then open and edit your maps from any of your Android devices. You can even view and edit them in Google Chrome on Windows or Mac using the free Chrome Web Store version of Connected Mind (http://goo.gl/4G0SJ)

This mind mapping application takes full advantage of touch interfaces, which are perfect for the hand-drawn approach, giving you complete control over the layout of your maps. You draw each branch by hand in a single stroke of your finger, taking any path you want. Your stroke is then smoothed to create a flowing curve which you can tap and adjust if you need to. Images and shapes can be freely dragged around and resized and images can be clipped to any supported shape.

Each main branch from the central idea of the mind map is assigned a different color, picked a random from a palette of suitable colors. You are free to change this to any color you desire, using the fully-featured color picker.

Features
" Supports phones and tablets running Froyo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb or Ice Cream Sandwich

" Undo/redo

" Choice of 27 resizable shapes, with beautiful color gradient fills
" Images added to your maps can be sized and clipped to any supported shape

" Open and edit your maps in the Chrome web browser using the free Chrome Web Store version
" Share your mind map as an image with any installed app that can accept images, such as Messaging, GMail, Twitter, etc
" Delete or rename maps
" Import mind maps created in Freemind format via the Chrome version
" Speech recognition - speak the text of your branches

Good startKeeping in mind that this beta... it is a good map tool. Starting off on the right foot for sure. Just can't wait for zooming (custom canvas size would be much better) and map management :-) Keep at it... great beginning!

Not mature yet,but promisingMost annoying: map list maintenance, ie no possible deletion from list nor renaming Keeps on adding file names both Android & Chromium app. Missing (multitouch) zoom/navigator Typos in poor UI. I hope people will purchase app 2 encourage this creative dev!

Really useful app, have used it for revision. It could do with the ability to add more to the map - as it is, it can't grow above a certain size.

So far..Decent for a beta but needs more real estate or freedom for the map to grow.. Limited space forces the map to be a certain size.. Maybe a zoom in/out feature??
