Newbie questions using MindJet on my Android phone

I was searching for apps that would let me outline projects on my Android phone and someone mentioned MindJet. I love this app!! It's a great tool to put your brainstorms into a visual perspective that is both clearly defining and totally flexible.

I do, however, have some questions about using this program. I hope someone out there can drop-kick me in a good direction.

-- Is there a detailed user manual that I can download? I've learned a lot by just doing, but to have an outline of what the effects are of what I'm doing would be great.

-- I entered a note on a topic. How do I delete the note? I can delete all the text, but not the note.

-- I haven't tried the different exporting options yet. I know that eventually I'll need to turn this into a Gannt-style project chart with timelines. And I'll want to add resource needs to various topics and then have those needs associated with the topic and sorted by any other indentifying tags ... is that possible here?

-- The MindJet app is simply an Android-friendly portal to the web site, yes? So my project files do not reside on my phone but on the web, yes? How do I get the URL so I can send someone a link so they can see what I'm doing?

-- Can I create and define my own styles for text and topic shapes? Can I modify or download something that will give me a greater selection of topic shapes?

-- When I'm inputting text into a topic, it's on my phone screen as one long scrolling line. I'm not seeing lines and paragraphs like I am here. Can I insert line breaks? This would be great for a bulleted list. (I do see that I can create a list with line breaks in a text editor and paste that into a topic, but I still see only one single line in my phone screen when I try to Edit Text.)

That's all for now. I'm sure there will be more!

Hi Ed

You can save maps to Dropbox and Box which will allow anyone you permit to access your map to view or edit. They can do this with any app which accepts the Mindjet format.

If you get them to use the trial the Mindjet web can still be used to view and edit at the end of the trial but you lose some functions and collaboration options. The desktop goes to view only.

You Gantt etc. functionality is only available in the Windows desktop application.
