Excellent mind mapping software

Edraw Max is comprehensive mind mapping and planning tool that will allow you to create hundreds of diagrams and graphs from an easy-to-use, Word 2010-like interface.

If you are looking for a complete tool for diagrams, flowcharts, graphs and mapping, we'd definitely recommend Edraw Max. It will allow you to organize your thoughts - or plans - in graphic form, making it easier and simpler to put them into action. The sheer breadth of Edraw Max's functions means that it is relatively easy to get lost. The interface is attractive and simple to use - it uses the popular ribbon layout, which means that most users will be able to find their way around intuitively. There's a large selection of Help options, and the start-up screen displays all the templates available, making it easy to start any process.

Once you have picked the best mind map template for your needs with Edraw Max, you create the chart by dragging elements from the Libraries on the left into the main interface. You can then rename, modify and move each element until it accurately represents the idea in your head. Edraw Max elements are varied, ranging from simple geometric shapes to universally recognizable symbols and even floor plans and fashion design elements.

Naturally, since mind mapping software is especially suitable for multi-level projects, Edraw Max has bunches of export/import options, while there are also plenty of tools for sharing, such importing documents or adding hyperlinks. Edraw Max is an excellent mind mapping tool, and makes any complex task or project a much more efficient (and even enjoyable) process.

Edraw Max is so complete, it's a bit overwhelming, but persevere and you'll reap the benefits.
