How To: Export a New MinDgo 2 Document

2013.04.09  in using tags MinDgo

MinDgo 2 can copy (import) existing mind maps from a Dropbox folder, the iTunes document folder or a new document can be created locally. This tutorial demonstrates how to export a new (local) mind map document from MinDgo 2 v2.1.

A new mind map document can be created directly in the MinDgo 2 app. This document can be exported to a Dropbox folder[1], the iTunes document folder[2] or attached to an email[3].

  1. When exporting to Dropbox, the document is copied to the root folder. It can be moved to another location afterwards, if desired. Note that MinDgo 2 will need to be linked to a Dropbox account before this feature will work. Also, exporting a document to Dropbox does not enable the synchronization features of the app. A document needs to be “Copied from Dropbox” to enable the synchronization feature.
  2. When exported to iTunes, the document can be copied from the device using iTune running on your Windows or Mac OS X computer.
  3. When sharing using email, the document is sent as an email attachment. Note that your iOS device must be configured for email before this feature will work.

Notice: MinDgo 2, MinDcard and Dropbox Incompatibility

We’re sorry to report that the MinDgo 2 v2.0 release comes with a known bug involving an incompatibility between MinDgo 2 v2.0, MinDcard v3.0 and the Dropbox app. This bug is only present with the specified app versions.

If you have all three of these apps installed, you may encounter difficulties in linking either MinDgo or MinDcard with Dropbox. If both apps are already linked with Dropbox, then you will not see the problem. This problem is being addressed and will come in the form of an updated version of MinDcard.

Short-term workarounds for this problem include;

  • Wait for the availability of the updated MinDcard app before installing MinDgo 2 v2.0.
  • Temporarily remove the Dropbox app. This will allow MinDcard and MinDgo to successfully link with Dropbox using the web interface. After both apps are linked, the Dropbox app can be reinstalled.

A Brief Introduction to MinDcard

2013.19.04  in using tags MinDcard , Tutorial

This presentation provides a brief introduction to our iOS app, MinDcard.

MinDcard a companion app that works with FreeMind, Freeplane and other compatible mind-mapping applications to turn mind maps into study cards. MinDcard identifies annotated nodes in a mind map and presents them as flash cards for study using the Leitner Learning System.

Node are marked as a study card by annotating it with an icon or attribute. The node’s text will be displayed on the front of the study card and the node’s Note will be displayed on the back.

MinDcard can import mind maps iTunes File Sharing or from Dropbox.

The annotation icon can by customized using the app Settings.

MinDcard looks for annotated nodes and sorts them into 4 decks; All Cards, and Decks 1-3.

  • All Cards deck contains all of the annotated nodes.
  • Decks 1-3 are used when studying using the Leitner system.

Initially, all of the nodes will be in Deck 1. As nodes are answered correctly, they are moved up to the next Deck.

During a study session the cards in the deck as listed along the left. When a card is selected, the node’s text is displayed on the front side of the card. Tap the card to flip it over and reveal the node’s note on the back.

Cards can be marked as correctly (or incorrectly) answered using the CHECK and X buttons.

Cards can be advanced forward or backwards using transport controls, swiping or by directly selecting a card from the list.

When done studying, return to the Decks. Cards that we marked as correct have been moved up to Deck 2.

The cards can be reshuffled back to their starting position by pressing the Reset button.
