Probably known to most of our readers, MindjetTM is a provider of mind mapping desktop applications that has been around for many years and specializes in client software.
Recently the company has been moving into the online mapping space as well, and with this has switched its former pricing model to a new subscription-based model, a move which has prompted many agitated responses.
Since the introduction of the new pricing model, we’ve been receiving an exceptional amount of inquiries from MindJetTM‘s users looking for an alternative tool. Besides asking for pricing information, the users were interested in a functional comparison of the two products. We’ve therefore created the following feature comparison table of the two most similar services, MindMeister Pro and MindJetTM Web.
|MindJetTM Web||MindMeister Pro|
|Cost / Year / Month||$180 / $16.50||$99 / $9.99|
|Drag and drop (images, links and documents)|

|Prioritize tasks and schedules|
|Calendar Integration (iCal, Google, Apple Mail)|
|Online Access (sharing, global access, etc.)|

|Connectivity / APIs|
|Import Multiple File Types||Word||MindJetTM, FreeMindTM, xMind, Text files|
|Export Multiple File Types||Word||MindJetTM, FreeMindTM, xMind, JPG, PNG, Word, Powerpoint, PDF|
Note: All information in this comparison table is accurate to the best of our knowledge and as of 4th October 2012. The features compared in this table have been taken from the advertised features of MindJetTM Web package on the MindJetTM website.

MindManager does have a presentation mode. It\’s called Walk Through.
Hi Ernest, thanks for your comment – we are aware of Walk Through, which is available with other MindJet products, but for this comparison table we are comparing \’MindJet Web\’ to \’MindMeister Pro\’.
I am a long time Mindjet mm user, and as many others I am looking around.
One thing you should amplify in your comparison is being Web-native. It allows you to access via a tablet using the browser. It means you don\’t need the clunky Ipad or android apps which look and feel different from the native access
Very helpful – thank you!~
