Editors' review

Edraw Mind Map gives you multiple options for organizing your thoughts and creating various types of diagrams to share with others. With all of the possibilities this program presents, you can keep track of just about any type of information with ease.

Pros

Templates: There are several different templates you can use to help you begin your mind-mapping process. Options include a Concept Map, a Bubble Diagram, and various other Mind Map diagrams in different styles. You can also further customize your diagram by selecting different backgrounds, borders, colors, and more.

Nice touches: This app incorporates a few handy features that make the user experience more pleasant and productive. The various tools you need to complete your mind maps and other diagrams are conveniently arrayed across the top, left-hand side, and bottom of the interface, so you can find exactly what you want when you want it. You can also have multiple documents open at the same time and switch between them quickly by using the tabs at the top of the main viewing window.

Cons

Unintuitive: The controls and navigation in this app do take a bit of getting used to. Because there are so many features, it can take some poking around before you get used to where all of the items you use most often are located. And the app does not create automatic connections between the existing bubble and the bubbles you add, which can be a bit of an adjustment if you're used to other programs that do.

Bottom Line

Edraw Mind Map provides a lot of features and a good deal of versatility. It's definitely worth trying out if you're looking for a comprehensive mind-mapping software, and it's free. There is also a Pro version you can purchase for $99 that has a ton of additional templates and other features.

    "Cramped UI & Complex"

    April 01, 2014   |   By Imogen7Ryan

    Version: Edraw Mind Map 7.6

    Pros

    Lots and lots of features. Seemed to be liked by many.

    Cons

    It is awful (the UI). The actual space for creating the MM's is very dwarfed by the ribbon, the sidebar and bottom. It's so cramped and 'busy' looking. Not just that, it's very complex and needs patience with its learning curve.

    Summary

    I'm sure it's great as many are using it. For me though, there is not enough space for the actual MM and the size of the surrounding elements makes it worse. I just want a simple and straight forward MM software, and for me, this is not it.
