Pros: Fast and intuitive mind mapping with great support for images and documents. Many available layouts and custom themes. Cloud sync between devices, keyboard shortcuts, and a few project management features.

Cons: Limited completely to the desktop. Powerful, but also overly complex, takes time to learn. Cannot freely position elements, must use pre-defined layouts. Cloud synchronization is aggravating, often results in conflicts and duplicate documents.

Overall: I use it primarily for brainstorming, it helps to be able to capture ideas and draw relationships between similar concepts. It is also helpful for creating charts and data visualizations for my team.

Pros: This version of XMIND (v8 update 4) is a fantastic solution for:
- mind mapping,
- diagrams of different kind,
- info-graphics
User interface is a nice, clean with adequate number of icons (options) in toolbars (horizontal and vertical) and only one menu bar . Most of options are always available during work and can be accessed immediately when needed. And there are plenty of options.
OUTLINE - is full of options, with different filters.
TOPIC FORMAT - many options are available (there is place to improve)
CLIP ART / ICON FINDER - plenty of media to choose from
MARKERS - are made nicely, with several options to choose from
THEMES - are nice (there is place to improve)
NOTES - are linked to topics, nice feature
COMMENTS - are similar to notes but with time when inserted, also linked to topic
TASK INFO - sometimes can be of use.

Cons: This program, on my PC (WIN10, 4 Gb RAM), is very slow in some operations, especially loading. Cloud operations can be better defined.

Overall: This software can be used by any sized company. User interface is simple, clean and easy to understand and master it in short period of time. Plenty of options give opportunity for different level of design (from simple diagrams to relatively challenging info-graphics).

Comments: I know that I've barely scratched the surface of X-Mind. Mapping out projects, ideas, and goals with X-mind makes it easy to break those projects, ideas, and goals down step by step, which makes them easier to conquer one piece at a time, and the different design options, colors, and icons even help make unpleasant or challenging problems look more fun and approachable.

I don't use it every day, but when I need to break down a problem or a project, X-mind is a great way to digitally "get it all on paper," and see it all laid out clearly.

Pros: Easy to use; little to no training required to be productive.
Free version available

Cons: Limited design capabilities but its free.

Overall: Xmind has given my organization a free downgraded version of their software to use since we are a charity. I really like the ease of use of this software and how fast you can pull together a simple fishbone or timeline compared to Vision.

Recommendations to other buyers: This is a great first place to start on your search for diagram software.
