Trying it on 10.6.8, I notice that it kinda hijack MindManager! Yes it opens MM maps and that's great, but having both apps installed prohibits me from saving files in MindManager! I've lost hours trying to fix permissions, erasing prefs and the like, and in the end, when I erased Xmind, all was working again! I don't know how it does this trick, but this doesn't allow you to compare both apps, you soon have to choose which one you'll use... :-/ Otherwise, If you start from scratch, it's a real bargain compared to MindManager. ;-)

I won't rate it for now 'cos I haven't used it enough, but I can say that having problems under my 10.6.8 config with MindManager and MindNode Pro, Xmind seems to work ok instead (probably due to Java) and imports MindManager maps and a lot of other formats (for exporting, you need the Pro version). My problems are surely due to my old system, copied and upgraded through the years, but I have no time to reinstall OSX from scratch so Xmind is an alternative, for the time being. ;-)

Xmind Pro is an excellent product - but some important features are missing on the mac version : export to powerpoint is the main miss... export to Word also and export to opml format is also missing. Stangely the same feature are also missing on Mindjet Mac. Novamind is the only mindmap witch is able to export to powerpoint or keynote...

I use XMIND Pro 08 and love it. I looked at XMIND 3 and decided to back away. If or when my 08 version breaks, I will probably move to one of the “big boys” even though it will cost me more money. I don't subscribe to software. The 08 versions still works great and does everything I need. It doesn't work and play as well with other as I would wish, but at least I have something to show for my investment. Subscribing to software, like music, is a suckers bet.

I don't mind that they made it free. However, with each release the program seems to be losing some functionality and since I did purchase the Pro version of XMIND 2008 (2.3.0), these latest releases have been a disappointment. With version 2.3.0 I imported many custom markers. I've been unable to export them and import them to XMIND 3. XMIND 3.0 had the options to export as MindJet MindManager Map, PDF Document, and RTF File (Word Compatible). I did not see these options anymore under 3.0.1's Export menu, although it now has the option to export as an XMIND 2008 Workbook. Under the View Menu, 3.0 had a Gantt Chart option. This is not present under 3.0.1 The same applies to Task Info. The application's size has gone from 67.4 MB (2.3.0) to 34 MB (3.0) to 31.2 MB (3.0.1). I don't know whether this is a reflection of more efficient coding or just loss of features. I used to recommend XMIND, and for people who have no similar software this free version is pretty good. I would probably rate it with 4 stars. But as someone who paid for the Pro version I'm not happy with the direction the company is taking. Their focus seems similar to MindMeister http://www.mindmeister.com/ but I have no need for online mind mapping. MindMeister recently had an attractive offer at MacZot, by the way. Mindjet also has an online feature that users can buy, but this is in addition to the actual software. I prefer that approach. For now I'll use XMIND 2.3.0 and 3.0, as well as my old copy of NovaMind. Eventually I may go with MindJet MindManager, although the development of their Mac version always seems to lag behind the Windows version. For people getting this for free, it's certainly a great value. For me, it's obviously not. At least I got it at a discounted price. I can't even imagine how people who actually paid $300 -if there are any- feel about these changes.

Unlike others, I have had no problems with XMIND and I am amazed that it is free. It by far better than Freemind and the free version of MindNode. It easily rivals ConceptMind, NovaMind, and others paid version except that it is more elegant. I strongly recommend it before pay money for application.

I really like Xmind and was looking forward for further refinement in this upgrade. Unfortunately this update seems not yet ready for prime time: I tried to open a workbook created with the previous version and I'm only getting an completely empty sheet. This is an absolute show stopper for me and it seems I'll have to wait a little further.

XMind is a pretty darn good mind mapping app in terms of features. I got the last version from a MU Promo. The UI may not be the greatest and it is Java based, but it allows you to do a lot with great flexibility. I'm amazed how it went from $299 retail to only $50 a year for the Pro version. The basic version is free now. Good job! That was one of my major complaints about it. It's certainly worth it for people interested in organizing their ideas with mind maps.

I downloaded and installed the file. When I tried to get my free XMind ID apparently I got the "Captcha" wrong. Now I can't use the user name I chose or my email address since they "already exist" I downloaded the PRO version, but the "About" information says it's version 3.0.0. My previous copy of XMIND says 2.3.0 Professional. What are the differences between 2.3 and 3? Is it just the online subscription? Or have there been improvements based on user feedback? I'm surprised to see the jump from 2.3 to 3.0. This has been frustrating so far.

I have used Xmind for about 6 months on a daily basis, and I love it. It really works to create easy and fast mind maps that allows me to visualize a concept within our team or to a customer. Also I can expand and create tabs to further analyze any of the ideas or to make a more thoroughly explanation of a branch if needed and avaoid messing up the original map. The shortcomings are the print options, they are a bit limited, so make sure that all aspects and also colors are retained before shipping it of.

A lot about the non-macness of this app was already said. I personally find it easy to use and it didn't take me long to achieve the feeling that the app is under my control. But there are a lot of downsides to this app: - Printing is a pain - Instable, instable, instable: Palettes freeze or won't show up after you click the appropriate icon. Only restarts seem to help this. And unknown combinations of formatings seem to drive the program crazy: Too often the fans of my macbook go wild and the activity monitor tells me that XMIND is eating up all the CPU it can lay it's hands on. Again only restarting the app (and deleting the last changes after that) helps. My conclusion: XMIND could be a nice and easy programm to boost your mindmapping, Unfortunately the stability issues overlay that potential. With the (non-MU-bundle) price of XMIND one could expect a stable, usable app. XMIND does not deliver in this regard and can't be recommended in it's current state.

I can't agree that a good mind-mapping program is of limited interest, but I'd have to agree with TRYSOFTWARE that this program is very Windows-like. XMIND is a bit of a dog, and no way worth $300. Try out Novamind instead, which comes in three versions (the cheapest of which is only $50, and the most advanced of which runs rings around XMIND and is only $250 - and it's a SERIOUS business tool).

This app was not on my radar for the promo, but wanted to give it a fair shake. I have to say, it smells like a Windows port, in a Mac Microsoft Office '98 sort of way. As others have stated, this is a non-standard application that isn't logical to use. There is little that is Mac-like. I will say that the drill-down feature was nice and worked well. The templates and eye-candy weren't too bad either. One feature that is missing, and a deal breaker for me, is export to HTML. I tend to use a mind map program to lay out my clients Web sites and site maps. If XMIND cannot handle this very basic function, it is of little use to me. I'll stick to the free OpenSource program, FreeMind.

XMind is probably the most powerful mindmapping app on the market, but the app has so many nonstandard behaviors that it's just plain annoying to use. It doesn't use the standard print dialog, and the custom replacement doesn't support printing to PDF. It doesn't use standard text boxes, and the custom replacement doesn't support spell checking or drag-and-drop. It doesn't use the standard toolbar, and the custom one doesn't support rearranging the icons. It doesn't use the standard pane splitter, and the custom replacement doesn't support double-click collapsing. I could go on, but you probably get the idea by now. I mean, come on, guys. A mindmapping app is *all* about the interface. It's not like there's much complex logic involved; if they're going to charge this price, the developer needs to take the time to make the app work like the rest of the system. I'm not going to re-learn how to use my computer just to use XMIND.

A heads up on this app in connection with the promotion. I have experienced problems exporting to .rtf Responses from the developer have vascilated between defending the performance of the app to stating that MS Word is needed to read the data exported to an .rtf file. Expored data has been opened in both TextEdit and MS Word, as well as other text editors supporting .rtf files with a lack of consistency in the results and with the same basic problem. While responses were prompt and friendly, a response to a technical problem must consist of more than an assertation that "exporting to RTF works well here". I can provide screenshots for anyone interested in my being able to document the lack of performance of the .rtf export feature. I actually think that this app could be one of the top contenders for mind mapping on the Mac. That just makes the apparent lack of willingness to help diagnose the problem look more and more like the developer(s) shooting themselves in the foot.

Overall, this is the best mind mapping software I've used. "Presentation Mode" is one of many strong points this app has to offer. You can edit on the fly, and add voice notes while operating in presentation mode, super efficient! Also, the "Drilldown / Drillup", and "Audio Notes" are really cool features. Compatibility with MS Office worked seamlessly. Support is great, very prompt, very helpful. All in all, its obvious the developers truly value their customers. BTW, you can register XMIND Pro on two computers, and one of them can be a whatchamacallit... Oh yeah, pc ;-)

I recently downloaded XMind -- and had mixed feelings. Although it's feature set looks unsurpassed, and it can do things no other mind map software can, it's very "Windows" like. The Mac interface could use facelift to make it more appealing to the mac community. And with Novamind now on Windows as well, you are hard-pressed to find any real Mind Map software made exclusively for the Mac. Of course the freeware MyMind is still available, but for PPC only and not been actively developed for some time. Since the upgrade pricing for NovaMind 4.0 (Pro or Platinum) is pretty steep, it seems a good time to give Xmind a go. On a related note, I'm not all that happy with the new NovaMind 4 interace, either. Plus, on my ibook, both XMIND and NovaMind seem a little sluggish. Perhaps that's the that is the price to pay for having multiple platforms supported -- oh well. In any case, at this price XMind seems like a real deal.

Xmind seems interesting, but I will defer purchase until it matures. After several hours with its tutorials, I think its simple things are more easily done in Inspiration (which I have used for many years) and the fancier things are not well-explained by the tutorials (not helped by reference to templates which I can not find). PS: If this were a special price for Tinderbox, then I would buy because people I respect have praised Tinderbox for several years. However, about half of the online praise for Xmind seems written by its developers (e.g., 2 items on MacUpdate by Brian Sun who also posted to an Eclipse developer mailing-list on behalf of the Xmind development team.) PPS: please repeat this discount offer when the program, and documentation, has been tailored for non-devotee users.

What a beautiful-looking program, with an awesome set of features. This is what mind mapping on the computer should be like. Too often, mapping software is klunky; the process gets in the way of truly releasing the right brain; this software makes up for those mistakes by other companies and then some. Pls its cross platform and full of great diagrams. The only drawback for me is the high price; there should be a consumer and a business differential of some kind. Otherwise, if you can afford it -- get it!

Well, I've been noodling around with xmind for a couple of hours and I am very impressed. Someone earlier asked about the advantage over Freemind: I would cite an overall abundance of features, additional views, and (to me) a better handling of notes. I think Freemind is a terrific app, don't get me wrong, but I can well see the added value of xmind. Worth $299? Well, not for me, but I don't tend to pay that kind of money for software. Worth $59 today? Ah -- well, yes I think so. I think xmind could be an excellent brainstorming application for anyone who has explored these sorts of tools, comparing very well with Personal Brain, for instance, another app folks might take a look at. Concerns about it being unMac like are probably legit. I work in both Windows and Os X and don't mind the Java app nature of xmind. It is quite speedy. I think I'm gonna buy it.

This looks like a nice app. I've quite familiar with mind mapping and find it quite useful PROVIDED one does not get weighed down by the software used to create the mind maps. Earlier today I picked up a new client who needs a website designed for his restaurant. I think that I will attempt to use this software to brainstorm the layout, site design, etc. Hope it works.

Also, I would really like to hear someone's thoughts on why this is better (or, at least, $60 better) than FreeMind, which is, well, free.

Am I wrong, or does this app seem to be more about documenting thoughts than developing them? I would think that the whole thing would work more like the "presentation mode," in which you click on a node and it moves to the center. You can clearly make a very nice-looking document with this, but is that too much of a focus? (I'm really asking, by the way!)

Wow, I just lucked out! I read some more about this app on the developer's website and it soon may blow OmniGraffle right out of the water. Not only that, but I just won the raffle, it seems. Looking forward to this app, it's surprisingly well-rounded, powerful capabilities and features.

I'm still testing the software but I'm very pleased. I now have no problems with "saving" documents any more (see my earlier comment) - dunno why. I had a look to novaminds and other products the last ours. There are actual not in promo and no bargains at all. There are two free apps: I allways have a hussel with freemind and my mighty mouse and could not handle the map properly. I'm used to mymind (its free as well, but old and will not be updated anymore) where you can outline first and then create a map: nice little app for basic works. What me pleases with xmind is: you have total fingertip-control by just hitting "return", the arrows, F4 and "esc". You don't need Your mouse, just move through and build Your map with these keys. Thats tarrific; I didn't found this at novamind; and openmind is much to pricy. So: I'm in with xmind.

As a mind-mapping client, its feature set is second to none. If you like the idea of mind maps but have been unable to "get" them on paper, give this a whirl!

Very difficult software to design and implement. For those who do a lot of concept formulation and brain storming this should work well... and the price is really right.

I'm almost ready to trade up from MindManager... XMind provides a very comprehensive set of features, including nested tables -- something I haven't seen in a native Mac mindmapping program -- and a very usable drill-down feature. Also, XMind provides the most seamless Java experience I've ever seen on the Mac. When you go to open or save a document, it spawns a native Mac OS dialog box... it even integrates with Apple's native Color Picker. Not bad -- I may need to spring for this one.

I've been watching for a really good brainstorming app to help me do 2 things: 1) write a novel, and 2) organize my home projects, of which I have many, like transfering vinyl records to digital and making long movies in Final Cut Express from old 8mm family spools. I think XMIND 2008 Pro could help me with the novel by letting me build various plot possibilities, and with the projects by letting me chart each technical step and artistic decision to facilitate my production process. This might be what I've been looking for; I'll try the demo now, fingers crossed!

We have been reviewing multiple mind mapping software packages for the past few weeks to use at work & at home. Visual Mind is my second favorite next to XMIND, but it failed too many times in trail. What's the sense of having all the bells & whistles in a product that won't work or having more features than you'll ever use? XMIND is a product you can use to quickly create mind maps (it's intuitive and does not slow down the thought process). Other's we have trailed include Visio/Smart Draw, MindMapper 2008, Mind Manager/Mind jet, Inspiration, and even web-based programs including MindMeister. XMIND is a good product at an affordable price. It may be limited in colors, and does not currently have reminders, but it is a solid program & now at a absolutely unbeatable price! You will not find a comparable program at this promo price! I have been Skyping the support rep. @ XMIND who is very informative and responsive. He even logged in this morning to make sure I saw this promo! Imagine that! He also explained that this is a one person PRO license that can be loaded on up to two of your computers (home & work) and the license is good for both platforms (MAC & dare I say it on this site PC). All XMIND 2008 updates will be included free - until the next big-name-changing upgrade. I also appreciate their honesty on the features they are working on and when they expect them to be available. Just ask and they will tell you. Chances are if you thought about it - they have to and they seem very dedicated to improving the product and open to suggestions. The product has been upgraded twice during my current trail. Glad to finally have this search over with.

I just posted about this on my blog. Even in Java is a very sleek app. More so, the price is a killer and I, like others, can atest the developers prompt response. So far, so good. Btw, even if .ppt export doesn't work on Mac now, the developers said it's a feature to be added by a near update.

After a short test compared to MindManager Mac, it seems that the functionality of XMIND is richer, more types of graphs are supported.(I'm still looking for a Timeline correctly implemented, though). What is nice for corporate users is that you can install the Java application on XP, download it as a ZIP (which is allowed), and run it with standard non-administrative privileged user. Functionally, the MindManager Windows PC version 7 is better and more integrated with Windows. Also, we use the free NETVIEWER plug-in intensively to avoid travelling, and we would miss it if we 'cross' to XMIND. I am not sure what I will do at this stage.

I'm still trying to incorporate "mind mapping" into my one-person consulting business-- particularly when some of my clients don't know what the heck it is-- but I wasn't aware of XMIND and it looks like a promising approach. Especially since it runs on Windows, is fairly cheap (even at the full price) and I might be able to convince my customers to buy it!

The demo is sweet! I may have to crack open the wallet on this. What a fabulous deal and the Pro version to boot? You can brainstorm with mid maps, concept maps, fishbone diagrams and more. The website is very complete with information, support and the help file seems quite thorough. What's more, there are tutorials to get started (even though I don't think you need them, honestly). This will break my budget, but it will be worth it.
