Editors' Review

FreeMind for Mac is a flexible mind map creation program that lets you record and organize your ideas in whatever way works best for you. The controls are intuitive, and everything you need to create a good working mind map is right at your fingertips as you navigate the program.

Pros

Straightforward interface: As soon as you open this app, you're ready to start mapping out your thoughts. Just enter a word or phrase in the parent node, and then click the light bulb to create a child node. There are also options for adding sibling nodes, adding a previous sibling, and adding a new parent node. The tools you'll use most frequently are arrayed across the top of the main interface window and down the left-hand side. More advanced options can be found in the drop-down menus you can access from the menu bar running along the top of the screen.

Link integration: You can add clickable links to your mind maps as well through this program. Types of supported links include URLs, links to folders, and executable commands, giving you even more options for the ways you can use this versatile program.

Cons

Closing issues: We did have trouble getting this app to close on several occasions, and the only way to quit it in the end was to complete a Force Quit through the Apple menu. On these occasions, the app was unresponsive only to the Close or Quit options accessed from the bottom taskbar, the upper toolbar, and the Close button on the interface, itself; but all other tools and buttons worked fine the whole time.

Bottom Line

If you're looking for a new, free mind-mapping program, this is a good choice, even with the problems getting it to close at times. It gives you the flexibility to organize information the way that works best for you, and its interface makes it accessible to users of all experience levels.
