Using Dropbox With MinDgo 2 v1.1
Introduction In this tutorial we’ll be covering the Dropbox features built into MinDgo 2. This tutorial uses MinDgo 2 v1.1. You can expect the Dropbox experience to improve in later releases.

MinDgo 2 v1.0
I’m very happy to announce that MinDgo 2 has been approved for distribution from the Apple App Store.
MinDgo 2 is a first and foremost, a companion app to FreeMind and Freeplane, two great open source mind-mapping applications for your desktop. MinDgo 2 allows you to view and edit mind maps on your small screen iOS devices.
If you’re not already a FreeMind or Freeplane user, you should be. If you’re already using one of these applications, you’ll want to have MinDgo so that you will have your mind maps with you when you’re on-the-go.
MinDgo End of Life
A few important announcements regarding the MinDgo iOS app;
first the good news…
A new MinDgo app is on it’s way. This new MinDgo is based on a fresh code-base and will have a new (as of yet unknown) name. Make sure that your mind maps are saved outside of MinDgo so that you’ll be able to import them into the new version when available. now the bad news…
MinDgo v5.0 is now available at the iTunes App Store. This upgrade includes support for Freeplane’s 1.2.18 file format changes and includes additional icons.
Note that MinDgo discards features that it doesn’t directly support when importing files. This means that some features may be lost when a mind map is (for example) created in Freeplane, imported into MinDgo and then exported back into Freeplane. Although MinDgo will support more features over time, the diverging file format and features between FreeMind and Freeplane will make full feature compatibility unlikely.
MinDgo v4.1 is now available as a FREE download from the Apple App Store. What’s New in Version 4.1.0 (since v3.1)
Added support for iTunes File Sharing (requires iTunes 9.1+ and iOS 4+). Enhanced file imports; importing mind maps is 10x faster, uses less memory, improved error handling. Improved error handling when editing rich-text nodes. Minimized analytics tracking. Bug Fix: Empty nodes caused the back button to disappear.
MinDgo v4.1 Compatibility with Freeplane
There are several compatibility issues between MinDgo v4.1 and Freeplane 1.1.3 that make this version of MinDgo inappropriate for use by Freeplane users.
The most serious of these issues concerns the format of the FONT element in the Freeplane data file. Freeplane appears to be more flexible regarding the structure of this data element than FreeMind. MinDgo can’t handle this difference and may fail to import the file. A fix will involve an update to the apps data mode and is in the works.
