The M post for #26Tech A-Z Challenge profiles a few mindmapping apps for brainstorming and outlining writing or creative projects.
Mindmapping is a favourite technique for many writers seeking brainstorming and structural activities. There are plenty of webapps, software programs and mobile apps to support creating and sharing mindmaps digitally.
For a full list of mindmapping apps and websites, please see the listly list here: Mindmapping Apps and Tools. Please vote on favourites or add your own.
For today’s post I’ve drilled down from this large list and will feature only a few which can be used on mobile devices for brainstorming on the go.
iThoughts (iOS App)
MindNode (Mac OS and iOS App)
SimpleMind (Windows and Mac desktop, iOS App, Android App)
The Android app is available in a free and pro version also. The iOS apps have a free version and with in-app purchases more features are available.
However, the free versions of the mobile apps provide quite powerful functions anyway. You may want the full mobile versions to allow for Dropbox support through to desktop versions with your maps.
Others for iOS
In the upcoming O post, I mention two iPAD apps which combine freeform mindmapping with other notetaking features: MagicalPad and Ruminate.
You will find the other posts under tag: #26Tech or an index post will be provided on May 1st.
A to Z: in April you will find other bloggers providing A to Z posts on many topics, through the 2014 Blogging from A to Z Challenge.
