hgcghcfghfghgf

Cloud-based & Cross platform...

you can import all your existing maps in different formats

topics in maps can have icons, images, video, notes, links, tasks and attachments in them (custom themes, and Evernote integration, too)

tasks integrate into MeisterTask

accessible from any web browser

you can have multiple maps open simultaneously in different tabs in your browser

a power tip... (click on the icon with three lines to see the note)

accessible from Android and iOS apps

offline access as well

note only Chrome browser (and tablet apps) supported for offline access...

you need to manually take a map offline, and then manually take it online again afterwards

great dashboard for all your maps, which can be organised into hierarchical folders

maps can also link to other maps

easily search through ALL your maps, or just ONE map, for any text

maps can be exported into a wide range of formats including PDF and Microsoft Word

Publish maps...

maps can easily be embedded into web pages

each map also has its own page, and an url that you can share

maps in web pages are "live", fully navigable

can be expanded into full-screen as well

published maps can be for all, or only for those with permission

published maps can be editable by others or read only; likewise for downloads

other MindMeister users can "Clone" maps into their own space if they have permission

Collaborate...

many people can work on a map at same time

you can see the changes in realtime

MindMeister stores all versions of your map, and you can see a timeline of all past versions (with colour coding showing who did edits) and you can access or roll-back to any version

business version includes comments and voting on topics within the map

Presentations...

you can easily create presentations from maps

works rather like Prezi - you 'snap' sections of the map to make up slides

slides can easily be reordered and changed

presentations can be embedded in web pages just like maps can

and the Cost?

free Basic plan allows up to 3 maps

Personal plan is $6 per month

Pro version is $10 pm

Business version is $15 pm
