A Final Entry In Our Pick Of The Free Mind Mappers


BlumindI've been writing about mind mapping programs here recently, and have already covered XMind (https://www.techsupportalert.com/content/free-version-worlds-best-known-...) and Mind Meister (https://www.techsupportalert.com/content/get-your-mind-organized-2018.htm). Before I leave the topic for a while, here's one more that you may wish to look at.

Blumind is a freeware program for Windows that looks slightly dated nowadays, but that's not always a bad thing. Especially if, like me, you don't necessarily like the ribbon-based design that much software now sports. Apart from that, Blumind is a basic mind map program with all the features you'd expect, including a variety of export formats too.

You'll find more about Blumind at https://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=2217 from where you can also download the latest version, which works just fine under Windows 7, 8 and 10. The download is only around 1 MB, and it's available in an installable or portable version.

I tested the installable version, and it caused no concerns for VirusTotal's malware checkers. Web of Trust rates the download site as reputable too.

I've not noticed any mention of Freeplane. I've been using this excellent mindmapper for many years. It's open source and still being updated with new features. It's similar to freemind but with lots more features.


Wikipeadia has a decent comparison list of mind mappers.
