MindNode makes mind mapping delightful. Mind maps are a visual representation of your ideas, starting with a central thought and growing from there. MindNode allows you to brainstorm, organize & share your thoughts in an intuitive way, so you can focus on the idea behind it. The clean interface lets you concentrate on generating and connecting thoughts, and an infinitely expanding canvas means that no matter how big or complicated your project gets, MindNode can keep up.

MindNode has helped students, artists and project managers to be more creative with less effort.

Ratings and Reviews


Dietmar Stupka

Ich bin seit fast zwei Jahren Anwender von Mindnode, die Version 2.0 ist allerdings eine gravierende Verschlechterung. Zum einen wird man gezwungen das Upgrade zu kaufen (das Upgrade auf iOS ist gratis und führt zu Dokumenten die mit Version 1.0 nicht mehr geöffnet werden können…), andererseits steckt die GUI noch voller Fehler (unscharfe Darstellung, Beim Bearbeiten verschwinden Texte, Auto Arrange funktioniert nicht zuverlässig).

Sehr gut durchdachte Oberfläche


Selten ein Programm gesehen, dass eine so durchdachte Benutzerführung hat. Man kann sich sofort auf die Erstellung der Mind Maps konzentrieren. Tut das was man braucht auf wundervolle Art und Weise. Ich persönlich finde die Ergebnisse sehr ansprechend.

Sehr gut


Würde mich allerdings freuen wenn es eine (um einiges) größere auswahl an vorinstallierten Stickers gebe / bzw zum download angeboten würden.
