Best mindmapping Software ever

5.0 5 years ago

Comments: I use the software for several years now and experienced several versions of mindomo.
I am an absolute fan.
It helps me to strukture complex topics like legislation initiatives of EBA and german banking authorities.
I also use it for brainstorming in workshops. In the end you can use mindomo even for the presentation.
An absolute recomendation from my point of view

Pros:

Creating mind maps intuitive Cloud feature with data stored in Germany under EU Legislation

Cons:

No idea. My wish would be to store pictures or screenshots right within the map an not in seperate files

Best free mind mapping app

5.0 4 years ago

Comments: It's the only mindmap tool I've stuck with. I even tried a software called The Brain, which does what MindModo does, but it's still rather inflexible with it's structure.
I love MindModo's clean interface, but can get as complex as I want it to.
I feel like I'm drawing out my mind, but don't have to spend the time drawing it out by hand.
Very dynamic, can't sing it's praises enough.

Pros:

First of all, love that it's free! It's got a great range of free features that allow me to be productive using it, not just 'test drive' it. Lots of styling options for at-a-glance color coding (and branding) Very flexible - I feel like I can really map out my mind - it's not limited to just one structure Offline mode is great MOBILE APP actually Functional & Usable!

Cons:

Would be great if it could integrate with project management platforms, i.e. turn maps into tasks, but that's a tall order and not really a con. I don't have any cons because it really gets the job done

Feels out of date and difficult to use compared to other mind mapping tools.

3.0 6 years ago

Comments: It helps me visualize my thoughts and notes, and works well for brainstorming and capturing ideas.

Pros:

Mindomo allows you to quickly capture ideas in the form of a mind map. It has solid mobile apps and works on the web, allowing you to work with your maps from anywhere. The map can be structured in a number of ways so that you can use it for brainstorming, project planning, building organization hierarchies, or taking notes. I like the many tags you can use to brighten up your maps, and it is great for visualizing information.

Cons:

The price is very high, and doesn't justify the limited features. The cloud sync is only available to subscribers, and doesn't work very well.

Great tool

4.0 5 years ago

Comments: I've been using several free/paid tools for mindmapping: Mindmeister, Xmind, Freemind and some others. My favorite was Xmind until they changed their cloud strategy. Mindomo was the best alternative at the perfect price for my use.

Pros:

- you can save / manage mindmaps in the cloud - you can customize templates - you can share / bookmark maps urls - you can use a huge database of templates / examples (like with some other competitors)

Cons:

- the text editing section for annotations could be improved with better resizable & movable window

Keeps me organized

4.0 5 years ago

Comments: I am using Mindomo to organize my lecture material with links to resources. I am also using Mindomo for the assignment feature for student group work.

Pros:

Ease of use and very easy to learn. Ability to copy and paste maps as well as import / export maps. Many ways to attach links, images, or files to a node.

Cons:

The set styles to change color of nodes are not diverse or organized. It would be great to have the ability to save a new style rather than having to set it up for each new map.
