XMind is the most popular mind mapping tool. Millions of people use XMind to clarify thinking, manage complex information, run brainstorming and get work organized. We want all platform users to have the same experience. It couldn’t be easier to get started.

Mind Mapping

Productivity is what matters most.


Special thanks go to Tony Buzan, who brought us the mind map, a proven theory which can help us dramatically clear thinking and improve productivity level. Mind Map structure in XMind contains a root in the center, with main branches radiating from it.

Besides the Mind Map structure, XMind also offers Org-chart, Tree-chart, Logic-chart, etc. These charts will play important roles under various circumstances. For example, Org-chart can show the company/department/team structure clearly. Logic-chart is very useful in sorting reasons.

More importantly, all these charts can be used within one map! Every branch, even every topic, can have the most proper structure. This is of great usability.

Business Charts

Extremely helpful for business elites!

Fishbone Chart

Business elites always encounter a lot of complex tasks. The four amazing structures of XMind could help them release pressure and improve efficiency! Fishbone Chart can visually organize causal relationships among complex ideas or events. Matrix enables in-depth comparative analysis for project management and strategic decision-making. Timeline tracks milestones and schedules in chronological order. Org Chart easily presents an overview structure of an organization.

Brainstorming Mode

All your thoughts flow into your mind map.


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

The most important thing of brainstorming is to focus on quantity, not quality. So we bring the Idea Factory to record and collect inspirations further and faster. A timer stays to let you control the brainstorming session time. Additionally, you can switch between day mode and night mode.

Displaying the central topic and building a stress-free scene, here, you pay all attention to recording inspirations and sparkles in your mind. Then, the solution hidden within them will surprise you. What’s more, you can discover it by evaluating, organizing and connecting ideas.

Presentation Mode

Demonstrate your mind map in an elegant way.


Effectively presents mind maps to audiences with a minimum of distraction, focusing on a particular topic. The Presentation Mode is an alternative "full-screen" view that allows you to browse your map with a minimum of distraction. It makes the map appear on the whole screen rather than in a window. You can use shortcut keys and a hovering toolbar in this mode to view and navigate map easily. An additional sidebar lets you filter the map and record audio notes.

Gantt View

You can use both advantages of mind map and gantt chart.

Gantt View

Effortlessly converting Mind Maps to Gantt Charts is one of the trump cards of utilizing XMind in project management.

Gantt View shows start date, end date and progress of every task. A task (or a milestone) is actually a topic in mind maps, so a task has a tree structure, which is usually called a Work Breakdown System(WBS). And the structure is, you guess right, the mind map! And they're auto synchronized. The user interface is beautiful, the interaction is fluent, and the usability is improved. Complex operations can be done directly on the view.

In XMind 7, you can add, modify and show task info directly in Gantt Chart view, including start/end date, assignee, priority, progress, milestone and task dependency. Smart XMind 7 also brings in exporting Gantt to images/PDF, or printing it.
