Last updated: February 01, 2019

From all the mind mapping software apps out there, Mindomo is the most focused on providing the best solution for teachers and students. Collaborative mind mapping, concept mapping, outlining - the best way to understand and learn anything.
The Most Popular Mind Mapping Tool. Millions of people use XMind to clarify thinking, manage complex information, run brainstorming and get work organized. Unlike most alternatives XMind is an open source project, which means it's free to download and free to use forever. XMind Plus/Pro with more professional features are also available.

XMind was updated more recently than Mindomo:

01.02.19. XMind adds audio-notes

Taking notes in meeting or lecture can be a bit of challenge, not mention making mind maps. XMind's new Audio Note for sure is an effective way to solve this task. Different from images, context, Audio Note consists of Recordings. It can be any topic to sync with text on mind maps, elaborating further on correspondent topics. The input efficiency is the key for making mind maps, especially on mobile devices. Inspiration is always fleeting, and an instant capture is a cure. XMind developers added Audio Note on XMind for iOS, and improved input efficiency greatly. Later on, Apple also implements similar interaction on iOS 12.


30.10.18. Mindomo gets new search functionality

Mindomo's search tool is getting some major improvements. The search now goes through all mind maps, both private and public, and their content. For example, you want to access a map where you put down this week’s to-do list but you can’t remember the title. However, you know that ‘grocery shopping’ was in the mind map. All you have to do is type in ‘grocery’ in the Search bar. First, we will display all your private mind maps that match the keyword in terms of map title, content in topics, notes, comments, and even in the Task Info section. Once you find your mind map and access it, it will always open in a new tab. To make your search results more obvious, we will highlight the keyword everywhere it appears. If the keyword is in the notes, comments, Task Info, and multimedia panels, we will automatically expand the panel.
