Why iMindMap

We asked our users why they chose iMindMap over all other Mind Mapping software tools; what makes us different?


Quite a lot, it turns out…

iMindMap is from the Inventor of Mind Mapping

iMindMap is Mind Mapping software from the man who invented Mind Mapping, Tony Buzan. Everything we do is designed to get you thinking creatively and without limitations. Our 40 years of research – more than any other organisation in this field – has culminated in us perfecting the Mind Mapping technique.

Our Mind Map software doesn’t just try to replicate what you’re already doing in a slightly prettier format. It encourages you to think creatively and approach Mind Mapping in a way that is in line with how your brain naturally processes information.

An amazing 78% of iMindMap users said that Mind Mapping has helped them to improve their recall of information.

Brainstorming with iMindMap

iMindMap is visually stunning

If you want to be at the top of your game, you need your brain to be engaged and interested. Dull colours and flat text do not do that, meaning you have to work harder. Our curved branches, bright colours and sharp images provide more than just a pretty face; they give you a visually stimulating environment to work in.

Stunning visuals = active brain. With iMindMap you get the beauty and the brains.

  • It creates fantastic looking maps with very little effort.

Think Like A Great Thinker

Many of history’s greatest brains, such as Galileo, Darwin, Michelangelo, and Leonardo da Vinci, had artistic note-taking styles featuring branching organic structures combined with sketches and keywords. Traditional note-taking, or black and white outlining, is only useful if the creative thinking has already been done.

Your brain needs freedom, colour, image and association to stimulate it fully. iMindMap’s non-rigid, flexible and organic approach is designed to help you think and brainstorm like a genius!

Over 73% of iMindMap users said Mind Mapping has helped to improve their problem solving skills.

It’s the most creative

iMindMap makes you more creative

With iMindMap you can do as much or as little as you want when it comes to creating your maps. We can make the whole map for you, or we can let you take control using our completely customisable drawing experience. From freehand branches to full styling options for branches and text, we give you the Mind Mapping tools to create works of art.

And the cherry on top? Drawing the maps yourself has lots of benefits for creativity and memory too.

  • iMindMap is the most creative piece of tech I’ve ever used.
    Graham Cullen, Headteacher, U.K

An incredible 86% of iMindMap users said Mind Mapping has helped to improve their idea generation.

iMindMap is the easiest to use

Our Developers make sure that using iMindMap is as smooth, intuitive and effortless as possible. There is nothing to distract you from your brainstorming session. You’ll never be aware of the technical powerhouse that lies just beneath the surface – and that’s the way we like it.

We keep the technology out of your way, so you have room to think.
