User Reviews

  • Counter to some reviews, xmind works excellently with every version of OS X since 2010 that I have used. I love this software and have no problems with it!

  • I love this tool on Windows, but it does not work on OSX. It installs fine but gets locked up when I run it. I get a nice box with the logo and that is where is stops. I then have to Force Quit XMind. Would love to have it work.

  • A really great mindmap software - has all features needed and is not overloaded. I use it very often, not only for mindmapping, as well for creating minutes of meetings. Strong recommended.

  • the best mapping software with me, thank you

  • This is the most professional looking mind mapping tool. The styles are designed very well. I use this as a presentation tool instead of PowerPoint now.
