What is going on with Mindjet for iOS?

Reviewing the Mindjet for iOS "Version History", it appears that all the versions since Nov/2012 have been essentially bug fixes, and yet many significant bugs still remain, and even more new bugs were introduced with the recent "iOS 7" update.

The bigger issue is that for over 16 months no significant MJ improvements have appeared. Namely, and most importantly:
- Zooming is WAY too limited to be useful for larger mindmaps. Quickly renders MJ almost unusable. See TouchDraw app or others for what is possible and should be implemented.
- iOS spell-checking is absent, creating a huge time sink to correct mis-typed words. See virtually any other app for how all of them implement iOS spell-checking.

"Mobile is eating the world." Mindjet needs to move much faster...or be eaten.

Folks, when are the iOS Apps going to be refreshed. I used the most recent Mac version to create some *simple* maps and was more than surprised that these 'Mindjet Files' could not be read/shown in Mindjet Maps on iPhone/iPad.

Just getting them to be able to show maps is not really enough as both iOS Maps and Tasks are in need of some TLC. 
Tasks: can't edit the task name or description is a biggie for me...
Maps: clicking on a node - black boxes shown top left and right... it is broken, lack of attributes shown e.g. completion level, owner... etc.etc..

Anyone listening here?

There still is no clear answer on this, but you should be able to add Mindjet Files as a storage service from the Files screen (see screenshot below)

Mindjet for IOS lets down what is a superb product range. Please either be in or get out. A crippled product that doesn't work effectively with the latest mac release and struggles with the various cloud providers is not a positive reflection on Mindjet nor does it aid in user workflow.

Its been years since the last functional upgrade and that's simply not good enough
