    What’s the best online mind mapping tool you’ve ever used?


    by stevenjamessj ·


    I am searching for the best free online mind mapping tools. The one I have used for a long time is called GitMind(link removed by moderator). As an English learner, I use it to study vocabulary and organize essay outlines.

    Here are some features of GitMind:
    1) Offer various mind map templates to choose from.
    2) Custom themes and styles
    3) Input outline and generate a map
    4) Share and collaborate
    5) Free cloud storage

    While I was a fan of XMind, and I have lots of maps saved in XMind. But GitMind does not support import from other tools. Please recommend some free online mind mapping tools. Thx:)

      Mind mapping is defined as “[a] graphical technique for visualizing connections between several ideas or pieces of information. Each idea or fact is written down and then linked by lines or curves to its major or minor (or following or previous) idea or fact, thus creating a web of relationships.” – The Business Dictionary.
