Overall Satisfaction with MindManager

I am using it individually as a brainstorming tool, but I also use it during training.
  • Brainstorming
  • Education & Training
  • Knowledge Management
  • Project Planning
  • MindManager is not an application closed upon itself. A file can be easily exported in a variety of format, including graphic, PDF, or Word. There are comparable products out there, but the output versatility is what is the most attractive aspect of this application.
  • It is also easy to create visually appealing file using pictures and icons as you brainstorm.
  • The application also presents ideas in a way that looks polished and professional.
  • I found that my current paid version has now expired. An update license key was sent to me, but it did not work. I am still waiting for the problem to be resolved after writing to the software license department.
  • Try to make an LTI tool to allow users to use it within another system.
  • Have a cloud-based server option for users to use it with multiple computers or devices.
  • Add an iPad app version.
  • Saved time.
  • Created some appealing visual representations.
  • Saved some effort.
It helped me to represent "online learning," a very large and complex concept, in complex layers and branches. I also used it to do a literature review for research and it helped me to organize my thoughts as I could move items around as the scheme for clustering change.
MindManager is the most sophisticated in functionality, but it is overpriced in today's market where free apps abound.
It is best for brainstorming and planning, but unless it has a cloud-based option for collaboration, its uses are limited for organizations. It is currently best for individual users.
