WriteMapper is a hybrid note taking & mind mapping app.

The app has taken a very unique approach to creating documents that is both minimalist and refreshing.

The lack of image editing is drawback. That definitely needs to be improved. Resizing and cropping features are a must-have for any app supporting image addition. The option to wrap text around images can be aesthetically pleasant when creating documents. These are all additions that will make this powerful application great for note takers.
