Overall Satisfaction with MindManager

Primary use is for pedagogical purposes in concept mapping. Secondary use is for concept mapping and planning for administrative tasks.
  • Brainstorming
  • Process Mapping
  • Education & Training
  • Project Planning
  • Concept mapping for book chapters, lecture outlines, PowerPoint Slides
  • To-Do Lists
  • Modified flow-charting
  • The older versions of MindManager had simpler construction of maps than the current version.
I’m not sure
  • Mind Mapping saves time in presenting ideas to students and to colleagues, putting information into quickly understandable chunks of information using subbranches, arrows, etc.
Presenting complex information to colleagues and students is facilitated by MindManager, especially with increased functionality in the ability to add multiple sub-branches and showing relationships between ideas.
MindMeister is easier to use than MindManager, but MindManager has more functionality -- and this is probably why MindManager is not as simple and straightforward to use as the other.
I use MindManager for mapping chapters of books in preparation, for writing lectures, for presenting content in an easily understandable fashion in PowerPoint and other presentation software. The uses to which I put the software work well. I have not used it for any other purposes, so anything less appropriate for its use is unknown to me.
