This is a good mind mapping tool. It is free. One for clean and neat creations, I like that you can snap your items to a grid. I like that you can duplicate blocks and then edit – allows for consistency in the map with minimal effort. Navigator is a nice feature that allows you to remain “zoomed in” on your working section while still being able to see the bigger picture. Excellent you can add additional elements (documents, pictures, maps, events…).

I don’t like that I cannot move an entire section of the map together (or if I can it is not a logical process). I desperately wanted to “select all” and move an entire subsection of my mindmap to better organize as the map grew, but I did not see a way to do so. Upon consulting help, there is a way, but I must say it did not work for me very well…

Generally I like this application and it is my “go to” mind mapping tool!

Very powerful for mindmapping. Allows you to add text, images, videos, pdfs and maps. Simple to use, too!

It is a great mind map tool, really completely free and embeddable. It allows to add media objects like videos or pictures to the map and connect them to text. Easy to share and multiple students can collaborate on a single mind map. I used it many times to explore new topics, to connect vocabulary words and to help in discussions.
