Organize information visually with this intuitive program.

MindVisualizer Standard is an intuitive program that allows users to create diagrams to organize a wide variety of types of information. With an attractive interface and flexible features, it's a great way to create visual representations of information in a straightforward format.

The program's interface is sleek and intuitive, reminding us of Microsoft's Office products. Getting started is easy; the program guides users through the process of creating topics and subtopics, and users can customize the shapes of both the topics and connecting lines. MindVisualizer easily allows users to insert icons and images into the diagram; it comes with plenty of both. A filter feature displays only elements of the diagram that include specific text. We love that the diagrams can be saved as the proprietary MindVisualizer Mind Map (.mvmm) but also exported in a wide variety of other formats, and even e-mailed from within the program. The program's Help file is thorough and well written, and we like that the program comes with both sample diagrams and a link to an online quick-start guide. Overall, we found MindVisualizer Standard to be both easy to use and powerful. We think it's a great way to brainstorm, create flowcharts, weigh the pros and cons of a decision, and much more.

MindVisualizer Standard has a 21-day trial period. The program installs politely, but it leaves a folder behind upon removal. We recommend this program to all users.
