We found MindMeister as the most complete tool considering our needs and context of use. Other tools that we had the chance to test/evaluate offered similar features for brainstorming and log of information, but we felt MindMeister was very easy-to-use, especially thinking about how to deploy it to our teams (on-line) and to start getting results quickly. Pricing conditions were very similar.

We chose MindMeister as the UI seemed easier to use. We were not able to take Lucidchart for a full test drive due to the limited free plan so we opted for MindMeister in the end as it seemed to have what we needed, which it did. The collaboration features of MindMeister also helped make our decision as it had exactly what our team needed.

Mindmeister has a good free plan compared with Lucidchart, and better Google Drive integration in my opinion. draw.io has a better free plan than MindMeister, but I prefer MindMeister for mindmap creation still, while I prefer draw.io for other types of diagrams. Xmind is powerful, but bloated, and requires installation on every machine that needs to open the file. The fact that MindMeister is in the cloud is a huge bonus.

I have also used LucidChart and Google Draw to create mind maps and concept maps in the past. I think that MindMeister is by far the cleanest and most user friendly of the three. Google Draw does not have anywhere near the same functionality. LucidChart tends to be clunky and the options to create your map are not always clear and intuitive.

  • FreeMind, yEd and Freeplane
As a full graph editor, yEd needs added structure to do tree structures as well as MindMeister. FreeMind is a great tool if you work alone. It allows all sorts of customization and scripting. It is Java-based. We don't work alone. Based on FreeMind, Freeplane adds it's own culture and style.

As I made up my mind about MindMeister awhile ago, I don't know enough about the web-based competitors to add much. I've never felt the need to go looking.

  • SimpleMind
Just as mind maps are applicable to just about anybody in any field of work, MindMeister is probably the best piece of software on which to create them. SimpleMind for MC/PC is very good, if not better in terms of user experience, but it's not cloud based so sharing maps is a problem. Hence why we moved to MindMeister.
