About this app

ZMind is a mind mapping app compatible with FreeMind (*.mm) files. Suitable for small devices since it can display the mind map as a both a list and a tree.

To open a mindmap use the built-in file browser (ANdroid 4.4+) or locate it on your phone by using Google drive, Dropbox, a file browser or something similar. Then clicking on the file will open it with the viewer. You can also create new file locally on your device.

- Add, delete and edit nodes
- Supports text, long text, notes, images, links, font color and background color.
- View as mindmap or lists

- Currently not possible to edit long texts and notes

The help is confused and useless. I spent several minutes just trying to create a second node before I gave up. UPDATE: I decided, a few years since I wrote the above, to give this another try to see if it had improved or if it worked better on a new phone (Galaxy S21 Ultra running Android 11), but it's actually got worse. When I try to create a new mind map, it refuses. I notice that its permissions are only for media files, not for all files. So presumably, since Z Mind files aren't media files, it simply doesn't have permission to write to the storage.

Thank you for reporting the issue. It seems like creating new mind maps are completely broken on Android 11 just like you say. This is due to changes in how file permissions are handled. No major changes has occurred since your last review but will try to give the documentation a much needed overhaul. Regards /Ylamaki

I suppose this app should be removed from the store since a new map cannot be created (apparently since at least 2021). It's really too bad. Great idea but, alas it doesn't work correctly on Android 11 or later. The app CAN open an existing .mm file.

The only free Mindmap-reading Android app I could find. No doubt, there are other apps out there that offer better functionality, but this is the only one if you want 0 cost and Mindmap compatability. Donations are optional - I'm going to do just that now.
