We all know that, mind mapping is one of the best ways to capture our thoughts and bring them to life in visual way. It really helps us become more creative, remember more, and solve problems more effectively.

XMind, as one of the most popular mind mapping software tools, is always focusing on improving the quality and ability and delivering great user experience. Everyday, what we all think about is how to make XMind easier to use, more professional and powerful. A good measure a quality product is it’s effectiveness. We’ll only do what we do really well. Just like Narek Khachatryan said in his recent blog.

In this post, he introduces his favorite products and how these products have helped him in capturing ideas, handling complex problems, designing products and so on. Below is part of his article:

“The field of UX and UI design is convoluted and rapidly changing, to say the least. As product design emerges as a unifying idea that blends user interface design, interaction design, and experience design, we are starting to see products that complement each other really well.

I’ve had the pleasure of trying out lots of products because there are so many amazing teams out there pushing the envelope. The ones listed below are my favorites because they are simple, focused, and do what they do really well.

XMind for mind mapping and brainstorming

As William Zinsser famously said, “Writing is thinking on paper.” Yes! True. And with that same zest, I would say mindmapping with XMind is brainstorming in pixels. It’s just amazing how helpful it is to jot down ideas with hierarchy and logical relationships rather than my usual chicken scratch on paper. When I start a new project, I will typically follow my research with a brain dump in XMind. It’s a tool that let’s you essentially drop in a bunch of notes in a brainstorm format. You can really do a lot with it other than brainstorm, just play around with the pre-loaded templates to get an idea.
Oh, and did I mention it’s open source? 

It’s not always the case that you need a mind map, but complex products and anything that does not have a flat hierarchy will always benefit from this exercise.” To see more
