01.02.19. XMind adds audio-notes

Taking notes in meeting or lecture can be a bit of challenge, not mention making mind maps. XMind's new Audio Note for sure is an effective way to solve this task. Different from images, context, Audio Note consists of Recordings. It can be any topic to sync with text on mind maps, elaborating further on correspondent topics. The input efficiency is the key for making mind maps, especially on mobile devices. Inspiration is always fleeting, and an instant capture is a cure. XMind developers added Audio Note on XMind for iOS, and improved input efficiency greatly. Later on, Apple also implements similar interaction on iOS 12.
