More information about the software

There are a lot of iThoughts’ lesser-known features that are extremely powerful and were specifically designed to be used by ‘power users. Many are actually ‘hidden” in order to provide a simpler user interface. The remainder of this article will give you a quick overview of some of my favourites.

You can password protect your maps for privacy. iThoughts encrypts the file (using AES-256) so that even if they do have the actual file, you can keep your maps private.

It integrates with FaceID or TouchID, so you don’t have to type the password every time.
