    MindNode 2.0 for Mac

    Delightful mind mapping

    I'm a MindNode fan. They have apps for Mac and iOS. Pretty easy to use. My favorite thing is how I can add notes to any item I add to the mindmap.
    • Definitely the best mind map app to use. It worths the price.

      The problem is I use 'apply theme' function a lot to erase the style of the content which I copied from other webpages and have different wild styles. As a result, that function will erase all special style I made to emphasize some specific leaf and make every node equal. I think you should try to provide a function called 'emphasize' or sth like that.

    I used MindMeister and I find it pretty amazing.

    I love it! Tried a few of them. I loved the interface of Mindmeister but it kept crashing. Mindomo is easy to use, there are also great templates with prompts. I quickly upgraded from the free version and it is inexpensive. You can see your mind map in mind map form and with one click see what it looks like in outline form. I am using it to create a business model and new product.

    We use it all the time. For mindmaps, for flowcharts and more. All at one place. Our organization is on GSuite and that's one of the cool things about draw.io. It integrates directly to GDrive. You can add notes, easily create child/sub-nodes and more! Do give it a try. Has been my go to tool for the last 1 year now.

    The clear way to share complex information.

    Coggle is super simple and powerful. Best UX/UI out there for me.

      I've been using Coggle for a very long time. I've used this for my studying and using the mind-mapping method to learn new words helped me out so much. I've tried many other mind maps, but they all looked very rigid and plain. Having some color and abstractness from Coggle relaxed that kind of tension.

    I've used several, but I like this one. It's got a free version which does everything I need it to do.

  7. This looks good, feels good. I stumbled upon this one after trying out a few other mind mapping tools and this was it.
  8. I love XMind. Since they published an iOS app and cloud sync you can even take your maps with you...
