Those who work in the education sector, organize courses, or who simply usually work in groups, know how crucial brainstorming is in the search for new ideas or, simply, in making their business more efficient. Precisely for this reason, when working in a group, reference is often made to mental maps , that is, apparently simple graphs that actually enclose a complex thought in an organized way.
If on paper it is easy to organize an effective mind map, on computer it is better to rely on a dedicated program. Among these is MindMaster , which we have had the opportunity to try these days. Developed by Wondershare , MindMaster is a simple and versatile tool specifically for creating professional mind maps with captivating graphics. But it can be used on different platforms, such as on tablets, on smartphones and there is also a version accessible via web browser.
The software allows not only to create mind maps from scratch , choosing the structure, style, theme and colors to express any type of idea, but also of course exporting any work to Office, PDF files, Evernote or even graphic files , sharing everything with colleagues or even in social networks like Facebook and Twitter.
MindMaster is compatible with Windows, macOS, Linux, and iOS and Android devices, and has 12 structures for the creation of mind maps of any type, such as radial maps, tree diagrams or herringbone, timelines, sector maps , circular maps or bubble maps. In addition, it offers the user the possibility of using 33 predefined themes to create mind maps with professional graphics without too much effort. If that wasn’t enough, over 700 ready-made clip art are available in the app, and several tools to customize any element of the mind map.
The interface and features
MindMaster offers a modern interface, with a light background and green elements. At each start it offers the possibility to create different new types of documents starting from preset templates, among the maps we have written above, or starting from ready-made examples in which it is possible to modify the text. With the free version the user can create the traditional radial maps (with a central element, and extension to the right or left), tree or organizational charts. The others are only available in the Pro version.
