Version 1.16.2 – Bug fix, Released April 28, 2017

This release fixes problems with Dropbox synchronization introduced by iOS 10.3. As a result of iOS 10.3’s problems with file names, multiple versions of a mind map could exist on your iPad/iPhone. Some of which may not have been synced with Dropbox. To avoid loosing data, this bug fix update creates for each potentially problematic file a new mind map on Dropbox. For these restored mind maps the text “(Unicode Fixed)” is appended to the file name. Please, review these mind maps and any original or “other” version. Note that the thumbnail shown may be different from the actual map content.

Version 1.16.1 – Bug fix, Released April 23, 2017

This release fixes a problem with Google Drive authentication introduced by iOS 10.3.

We’ve created a workaround where we prevent any view animating while we ask Google Sign-in to present the login screen.
