XMind Mind Mapping Software

What is XMind

XMind is one of the most popular mind mapping software.

Advantages of XMind

  • XMind is an open source project, which means it's free to download and free to use forever.
  • Professional mind mapping, good for showing on presentation.
  • XMind Cloud (coming early 2016)
    • It automatically synchronizes your XMind files across multiple Mac/PCs. Fast, secure, and free.
    • Very useful for a small team.

Trying XMind

I have found that XMind is quite popular among China software companies, therefore I plan to give it a try.

  • comes with easy to use template


  • easy file dragging: as link or hard copy


  • Nice recent history UI


  • Export as images


  • Build in markers



XMind is powerful, should try to start using it during my daily works.
