    Pros: Extremely lightweight, naturalistic branch layout, some great drag and drop functionality, and the basis for a great mind mapping too Cons: Not that intuitive... Diverts from standard key operations, e.g. pressing F2 won't allow you to edit a branch Having used Xmind for Windows I'd like more 'usuability.' Some features exceed its rivals (including Xmind Free), but certain things - like being able to colour branch lines according to their grouping, rather than having only one colour for all branches, and being able to paste text to directly create nodes - would be great to have. That said, if you want a simple, light, desktop cross-platform mind mapping application this is a contender that will support your idea generation, and integrate well with other office programs you are using, then this should fit the bill.
