Editors' Review


As a functional idea-mapping program with a streamlined interface, MindNode Lite for Mac helps users think creatively and organize their thoughts logically. The software performs as advertised even though the free version comes with certain limitations.

While MindNode Lite for Mac lacks any user tutorial or walk-through, the main menu is designed well enough for most users to pick up easily. The main window contains a large white space, where a center box is placed by default. Here, the user can enter the title of the first entry, or node. Moving the cursor around the area of the first box brings up plus signs, which create new nodes, automatically linked to the original. This can also be completed, along with deleting nodes, from the top of the window with two buttons. Another option at the top allows the user to name the files, enter author name, create keywords, and change the background color. The text color and font type for inside the individual nodes can also be modified easily. Even though free, the application does lack features to make it available across devices, including cloud access. These features come with the paid pro version available for $19.99.

Those looking for a mind-mapping program with few features would find MindNode Lite for Mac's easy-to-use interface a welcome option for practicing brainstorming and organizing their thoughts. This program is suitable for users of all levels.
