Who is it for?
Unlike traditional mind mapping tools, MindMeister allows for real-time brainstorming sessions between an unlimited number of users. Since its integration with Google+ Hangouts in 2013, up to nine users can also collaborate on a mind map while video chatting at the same time. Mind maps can easily be shared with other users. Non-users can be granted access as well as editing rights to a map via a secure link. Maps can also be published to the web and embedded on blogs and websites. Another main feature is MindMeister’s History View, enabling users to replay the entire change history of a mind map and revert back to any point in time. Users can also track changes by their creator, allowing f. e. project managers to retrace each team member’s contributions. In Presentation Mode, finished maps can be turned into slideshows and presented directly within the website or mobile app, broadcast to other collaborators in real-time, or exported as individual image files. MindMeister Groups allow users to seamlessly grant and revoke access to mind maps. This feature was designed for the particular needs of project managers and teachers, who profit tremendously from this fast and easy way of dividing big numbers of users into groups and sharing their maps with whole groups within seconds. MindMeister also supports multiple file formats including other mind mapping files, so users can seamlessly import their mind maps from other programs. Export options range from various mind mapping formats to printable PDFs, Word and PowerPoint files. An export to ￼￼￼ Word for instance converts the entire map content into a hierarchically structured text document which can be used as the basis for further refinement. Native mobile apps for iOS as well as Android devices complement the browser-based solution and offer users access to their maps wherever they are. Users can view and edit mind maps online or offline and let the app sync with their MindMeister account whenever connected.
