MindMeister is a great product that we’ve been using at the library for years. If you want to try it out, the free version gives you three mindmaps. If you find that you like it, a personal account is $4.99/month.
If you are a visual learner, or a visual thinker, mindmaps are a great choice to spark creativity and organize your thoughts. In addition, MindMeister allows you to collaborate with others and get the best product remotely. There are so many meetings in our lives that anything that saves time and has the same outcome is a welcome change. MindMeister also has apps so that you can work on the go and jot down your ideas immediately. How many times have you had a great idea and forgotten it by the time you’re sitting at your desk?
The MindMeister website claims you can start within 60 seconds, so I tried it. This is a very accurate claim! So give it a try and collaborate with others on anything from large project management to personal tasks like planning a wedding or a family reunion!
