Which Mind Mapping Software?

Easiest Way to Get Introduced to Mind Mapping

Hi there, here is a list of mind mapping software tools. If you want to skip the analysis, just go to Xmind or Mindomo for a simple (and free!) introduction to basic mind mapping.

If you dare to continue please be warned that you will get lost in all the mind mapping software options!

Additionally, it is not about the tool that you use, it is how you use the tool. Mind mapping software is no different than any other software – the software companies that own these various tools will continue to fight for market share until there are a few remaining.
