Clarify Thinking

Clarify Thinking

Confronting information overload and ideas shortage, we are able to clarify thinking for better decision with XMind.

We manage to gather most ideas and structure them in logical structure, then to steer clear of irrelevant information and identify the critical.

And, the relationships, patterns, priorities, and trends will be identified. Then, we can better assess the profit, cost and risk for better decisions, like market strategy and development plan etc.


Individual Brainstorming

With XMind, you can start the individual brainstorming session easily and quickly.

Displaying the central topic and building a stress-free scene, here, you can take all attention on recording the inspiration and sparkles in your mind. Then, you’ll find the solution is hidden within them. More important, we can discover it by evaluating, organizing and connecting the ideas.

Open Source & Award Winner

We opened the source of XMind (except some professional features). That means you can integrate XMind into your product, store data into XMind files, or even build your own mind mapping software based-on XMind. And we are glad to see that.

BTW, XMind is the best Eclipse RCP application 2008, the best project for academia 2009 in the SourceForge community, and one of the PCWorld 100 best products of 2010.

After trying both FreeMind and XMind I have settled on using XMind for my personal and professional projects and might even consider paying for the additional XMind Pro in the future.
