Pros: - making elegant zooming presentations with beautiful themes which is way faster and easier to produce than slide based presentation tools.

- publishing interactive mindmaps with embedded notes, links, audio, videos and presentation, which is very enjoyable to navigate.

- real-time collaboration with comments, votes and chat.

- has dedicated business functionality (task management, gantt chart) and educational functionality (student assignment, LMS integration)

Cons: - free web version offers three mind maps limit

- mobile apps (android and ios) doesn't offer the same complete experience as the web or software version

Overall: Mindomo hits the sweet spot by making an intuitive balance between simplicity and functionality, so that new users would start mindmapping in no time while advanced users can access deeper functions and tricks.

Pros: - you can save / manage mindmaps in the cloud

- you can customize templates

- you can share / bookmark maps urls

- you can use a huge database of templates / examples (like with some other competitors)

Cons: - the text editing section for annotations could be improved with better resizable & movable window

Overall: I've been using several free/paid tools for mindmapping: Mindmeister, Xmind, Freemind and some others. My favorite was Xmind until they changed their cloud strategy. Mindomo was the best alternative at the perfect price for my use.

Pros: Ease of use and very easy to learn. Ability to copy and paste maps as well as import / export maps. Many ways to attach links, images, or files to a node.

Cons: The set styles to change color of nodes are not diverse or organized. It would be great to have the ability to save a new style rather than having to set it up for each new map.

Overall: I am using Mindomo to organize my lecture material with links to resources. I am also using Mindomo for the assignment feature for student group work.

Pros: Cloud based, ubiquitous

Cons: Android app could use some polish.

Overall: I left a Mindomo competitor years ago because they failed to move to the cloud effectively. Since then I've used, and even taught, Mindomo exclusively. Simply the best.

Mindomo DESKTOP is an interesting solution for mind mapping and, in some cases, presentations.

Pros: This application is a fast one with simple user interface that anyone can learn in short period of time. There are many nice features incorporated in it.

(TASK MAP) HISTORY - it's unique feature for a desktop solution as user can see full history of some specific file (map). Also history for all made/used files is available and can be even filtered by user or time period.

EXPORT - is a full of options and is one of better ones.

THEMES - are a simple and fast solution to make nice and standardized design for your mind maps.

MULTIMEDIA - is incorporated in design, from simple icons (plenty of them) to http: links, Nice feature is that icons can be filtered by keywords (color, ...)

DESIGN - can be completely changed in few simple steps, also numbering of topics/subtopics is a nice feature.

Cons: User interface is minimalistic so many options are not available/visible during work but have to be looked for. Practically there aren't any options to choose from regarding application.

Overall: It's a very fast and easy to use software that anyone can learn in short period of time. Interesting option (that usually have impact on audience) is incorporating external links to multimedia content. Simple and fast design is perfect for internal needs, and more intriguing design can be used for public/promotional needs.

Pros: It is simple to use with a lot of features. I like the fact I can access my mind maps from computers and my phone. You can discover it for free (with just a limit on the number of mind map). Very friendly customer service !

Cons: There was some limitations, I send them a mail and they explain how to overcome them (and now, they have even remove the limitation since the last update).

Pros: Creating mind maps intuitive

Cloud feature with data stored in Germany under EU Legislation

Cons: No idea. My wish would be to store pictures or screenshots right within the map an not in seperate files

Overall: I use the software for several years now and experienced several versions of mindomo.

I am an absolute fan.

It helps me to strukture complex topics like legislation initiatives of EBA and german banking authorities.

I also use it for brainstorming in workshops. In the end you can use mindomo even for the presentation.

An absolute recomendation from my point of view

Pros: It helps me organize my thoughts and presentations.

Cons: There have been times where operation has been unstable but that hasn't been for the last 6 months or so.

Overall: I'm a freelance writer/consultant who works alone 99% of the time so I don't have a sounding board for my thoughts. I've been using Mindomo for this since 2010 and it's saved me countless hours or reorganizing and rewriting as I tend to get things right-er the first time. I've also used mind maps created in Mindomo to illustrate organizational concepts in articles and in communications with colleagues.

Love Mindomo!

Pros: The time from login to actually working on my map is very fast compared to other online tools. Very good, minimalistic design that don't get in the way of your thinking and working.

Cons: No filtering of multiple maps (i.e. what tasks are due today from my 5 project maps). Hoping for better filtering options in the near future.

Overall: Mindomo has been my preferred online tool for mind mapping since they started in 2007. Feature rich, fast, and easy to share and collaborate on maps with others.

Cons: Nothing I can think of. It does everything I need it to do.

Overall: I use Mindomo both in my teaching as a way to present students with my outlines and notes and for business as a way to organize complex projects and keep all my links to various important websites. The site has never, to my knowledge, been down. I've compared Mindomo to several other online mindmapping tools and I always come back to Mindomo. Great tool. Easy to use and has all the features I've ever needed.

Pros:

What I like most about this program is that you can make mental, conceptual maps, as well as diagrams in a very simple way. It is a program that does not require previous instructions and that is stored in the cloud directly. You can export your work in different formats without any mishap.

Cons: Really what I do not like is that to access some formats you have to pay a certain membership. In general, it does not have many cons

Pros: I like the ease of working, the freedom to connect in many ways. Most of all, I do use the root cause analysis tool and other "wizzards", it is functionality I have not seen elsewhere.

Cons: It is pricey, a multiple year offer with some discount would certainly be a good proposal.

Overall: Very happy with the tool and the fact that is is available in a browser, anywhere you need it. It is snappy, clear, with just enough options, no overflow of functionality.

Cons: Despite being excellent for day to day use in projetcs, it's a technical tool, so not that suitable for presentations that need more "hype".

Pros: - I use images, videos, links...

- It's versatile and the looks are impecable.

- I can go forwards and backwards on the presentation.

- It's cloud based and servers are really reliable.

- It's very easy to use.

Cons: All your work is saved and looks great in a Mindomo format. If you ever save it in another format it doesn't look the same, you feel you've lost your work, so you're somehow tied to Mindomo. I mean you have to be ready to make a long term commitment.

Overall: - I use Mindomo to organize my ideas when i have to give a one hour lecture or a whole year of philosophical topics. Now is my tool to think. I can't use anything else.

Pros: Mindomo allows you to quickly capture ideas in the form of a mind map.

It has solid mobile apps and works on the web, allowing you to work with your maps from anywhere.

The map can be structured in a number of ways so that you can use it for brainstorming, project planning, building organization hierarchies, or taking notes.

I like the many tags you can use to brighten up your maps, and it is great for visualizing information.

Cons: The price is very high, and doesn't justify the limited features.

The cloud sync is only available to subscribers, and doesn't work very well.

Overall: It helps me visualize my thoughts and notes, and works well for brainstorming and capturing ideas.

A mind mapping software package hampered by a minimalist user interface.

Pros: Maps can be exported in a wide range of formats. A free version is available (supporting up to three maps only).

Cons: The UI is very minimalist with few icons and the functionality is not always intuitive. The learning curve is a bit steeper than with equivalent tools such as Xmind.
