About the software

There are quite a few ‘lesser known’ features within iThoughts that are really quite powerful and have been developed, over the years, specifically to address the needs of ‘power users’. Many are effectively ‘hidden’ in the pursuit of a less cluttered 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 takes this to another level and encrypts the file itself (using AES-256) This means that you can store your maps ‘in the cloud’ (or on a stick) and be confident that the cloud provider (or a hacker) cannot read your map – even if they have the actual file in their possession.

What’s really cool is that it integrates with FaceID and TouchID so that you don’t need to enter the password each time.
