MindMeister is a completely web-based mind mapping software that runs in any standard web browser. The mind maps you create are saved automatically in the cloud, online, and can be accessed from anywhere, as long as you are connected to the internet.

Aside from the web app, MindMeister also offers native mobile apps for iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch and Android devices, which means that you can access, edit and present your maps no matter where you are.

MindMeister is intuitive and fast to ensure that you can fully concentrate on the creative task at hand. No clutter, no friction – just your team and your ideas. Speaking of team: Unlike traditional mind mapping tools, MindMeister lets you brainstorm in real-time with an unlimited number of users. Collaborators don’t even need an account to enter a map and give their input. You can create a secure link for any map and simply share it with clients, externals or anybody else who’s not part of your core team.
