Comments from some of those who selected FreeMind as one of their Top 10 Tools

  • “Tool for easy capturing of the main concepts and their relationships in one map”Malinka Ivanova
  • “I’ve only just got into mindmapping and am finding it a very useful tool for capture ideas for design of learning projects” Stephanie Horden
  • “When I’m a bit muddled, I use Freemind to organise my ideas.”  Brian Mulligan
  • “Mind mapping software is very useful for me (and not only in education). I use mind maps for drawing definitions at my textbooks, designing projects, “translating” ideas into paper, etc. I also teach my students to use mind maps. Although I have NovaMind 4 Pro for professional work I prefer FreeMind in education – it is free and easy to use.”  Vaclav Friedrich
