      February 07, 2014

      Pros

      Does exactly what I wanted. Create mind maps quickly and easily.

      Summary

      "Easy flowing Mind-Mapping program. I Love it!"

      February 19, 2012   |   By curkendall1

      Version: FreeMind 0.9

      Pros

      I found I can change the order of bubbled items using the CTRL + Cursor (Up/Down)!

      The ease of entering new thoughts and creating mind maps is great!

      The program shows when it has been changed with an "*" in the title and no "*" when 'Saved'... so I have a visual confirmation that the computer actually saved my latest mind-map changes. I like that!

      I can easily expand and collapse nodes, with a double-click.

      Cons

      I haven't figured out any way to make the bubbles/circles change sides from left to right, however, the program does have 'handles' on the circles which I can readily reposition on 'that' side.

      "Fast, Flexible, Pretty"

      December 12, 2011   |   By cwuester

      Version: FreeMind 0.9

      Pros

      the one software that can capture the train of your thought, even when it seems you can't, or when there doesn't seem to be a train at all - what often starts as a simply collection of notes is swiftly organised and re-organised as patterns emerge, entries appear and disappear - the layout is strongly reminiscent of hand-drawn mind-maps, 'images' are therefore powerful, easy to remember and literally 'food for thought' - perfect for developing a plan of action, the points of a negotiation or due diligence process or the clauses of contracts - and keep such lists 'alife' as projects evolve

      Cons

      none worth mentioning

      "A good first experience."

      July 12, 2011   |   By BNL1811

      Version: FreeMind 0.9

      Pros

      Fairly intuitive. Lots of options. Fun to play with, but is very useful at the same time.

      Cons

      Have not figured out how to move nodes around. They shift but stay in their original order.

      Summary

      My first mind mapping software experience, and a good one.

      "Excellent program. Compare with Freeplane. Use both"

      April 20, 2011   |   By considal

      Version: FreeMind 0.9

      Pros

      Easy to use. Immediately helps one visualize the organization of ones thoughts. Horizontal organization is easier to use than vertical organization (outline) schemes used in word processors.

      Cons

      Too easy. One may have a tendency to create too many new idea lines and then it becomes difficult find the idea line one made some time ago. One's own personal organization a must. Too easy to lose track.

      Summary

      I recommend this program highly to help one clarify ones ideas, organize projects, writing, etc. It should be given to every student starting as soon as they can type. I suggest one also download Freeplane and compare. Both are excellent choices. I am not sure which is better.

      "I use this program every day."

      March 21, 2011   |   By SacramentoRob

      Version: FreeMind 0.9

      Pros

      intuitive, low overhead, robust

      Cons

      could use a simple way to change storage paths on a branch of info. I moved some things to a different hard drive and had to re-enter the addresses for the links. There might be a search and replace that I wasn't patient

      Summary

      This is a really great program. When you are tired of looking for stuff on your hard drives and tired of trying to sort out all the details of your life, give this a try. It has sure helped me.

      "A major improvement in utility"

      March 07, 2011   |   By Arguilios

      Version: FreeMind 0.9

      Pros

      WYSIWYG textual note attachments.

      Cons

      I'm still looking...

      Summary

      FreeMind has grown up to make irrelevant the commercial-class mindmapping software that I once spent hundreds of dollars to buy.
