Hope Mindjet will resolve the issues they have with Thinking Space Pro soon on Android. They may lose customers with their recent Android app changes.
So basically, Mindjet acquired Thinking Space Pro, which was a $4.50 app on Android for creating mindmaps. It was a great app until:
1. Mindjet acquired Thinking Space Pro
2. Created the Mindjet for Android free app
3. Downgraded the existing paid Thinking Space Pro app, removed functionalities, stop maintenance, and added ads to it.
Bad PR to say the least. The kind of things you do to lose your customers fast (including myself) to their Mindjet MindManger for desktops ($399).
