Can anyone recommend a good software or app for mindmaps?
Have you come across a good, free mind-mapping software? I've just had a look in the Google Chrome store and they all look a bit rubbish or they hook you in to the "Free" package and then want you to upgrade. Just wondering if anyone has recommendations.
I like sharepmindmap app in the Google app store. Just search for mind maps and install it on your tablet or phone.
Once you have been using a "full" Mind Maping software - it is difficult to start using a free one.... I have been Mind Maping for more than 25 years - and I never managed to get what I want from a free software....
I use Mind Manager (from Mind Jet) and their iPad - version for quick brainstorming and outlines...
MAybe I am extreme in using Mind Maps but I actually start almost "everything" with a Mind Map:
-Project planning and monitoring
For me it is important with the possibility to transfer content to other formats - like word, excel, ppt, pdf etc....
If someone finds all this in a free software I am very interested....- Thanks Jacqui for putting the question
I found XMind, which is free, or rather freemium,, to be the least annoying mindmap software and use it as an alternative to bookmarks in a browser. Google on Xmind Download. It helps you create mindmaps rapidly.
Personally I find Concept Mapping tools like Compendium and CmapTools better but I had to abandon Compendium as it no longer works as advertised under OS X Yosemite and no one on their team seems interested in fixing the problem.
Love it .. use it mostly on my phone and tablet backs up to the cloud for easy access to your maps.
Well I would suggest having an App Created, I am an Apple/Google Developer and usually when I find that a case like yours has all the downfalls in which you describe, having an App Created works best for you as well as those that are in the same boat. Dennis Anness 317 378 0244
Hi Jacqui, I've used MindNode Lite for mind mapping online and found it easy to work with. The lite version is free (or at least it was when I got it), but it may only be available for Mac (you didn't specify what you're using). And, if you find you're using it a lot you can upgrade to the full MindNode tool without huge expense.
I hope that works for you!
If like me you use Mac, then take a look at Delineato Pro (very good price GB£5 from App store). I am also a fan of Scapple but note that it is NOT true mind mapping (GB£11 from App store).
I have used bubbl.us for years and as a free user, you can have up to 3 active mind maps at a time.
