    This is literally an interactive whiteboard for mapping / brainstorming (like the real thing), but in your browser! It's really easy to use.

    Smart Kapp Whiteboard

    Connected whiteboard that saves notes to your app

    Use a whiteboard to brainstorm / mindmap / etc. as per usual for your meeting, but then instead of taking poor pictures of the board, this one will save the contents to an app for you.

    Real-time team messenger tool

    Flock provides channels where multiple users on the channel can brainstorm/chat on any particular idea or project. It comes with a set of inbuilt productivity tools, one of them is the polling app - that'll help you consider everyone's opinion when taking a decision. It's also a cross-platform app, available across Mac, Windows, Android, Iphone and Chrome. There's ton of features for collaboration. Also, did I mention it's free?

      I love that flock is stable, easy to use and has a good base of application integrations. I typically miss flowdock, but the overall collaborative experience is better than slack. Been using a little over 6 mos.- couldn't pick that though

    Online brainstorming on a realtime sticky note whiteboard.

    A great way to bring remote teams together to brainstorm rather than holding a web cam up to a whiteboard.

    Create and share diagrams easily

    Xmind is pretty good for brainstorming. Realtimeboard let's you do a lot of other stuff. is awesome for online storage and it's FREE
  8. Works well, simple and UI is easy enough for even the most non-tech savy team member to use
