Mind maps are widely used by students who want to learn complex topics, business leaders who want to visualize their ideas, and other people who have the urge to organize their thoughts. Open Mind enables these people to get the maximum benefit out of mind maps. This software application facilitates the creation of mind maps.

The tool allows users to make new mind maps by adding bubbles or various geometric figures. The best part is that colors can be adjusted for color organization. Text messages or images can also be integrated. Users can customize the text in terms of font, font style, and size.


Allow users to create and customize mind maps using options like colors, lines, bubble shapes, and many others.

Open Mind, like other mind-mapping tools, allows users to visualize their thoughts and ideas. However, some features set Open Mind apart:

  • The software adds new features with every update.
  • Search bar for locating specific contents within the mind map.
  • Multiple elements can be added at once.
  • Bubbles can be added in different ways on the chart.
  • A spelling checker is also available.
  • Each bubble has its control window to add text or other elements.
  • Seamless integration of charts and lists.
  • Users can zoom in or out to make large mind maps.
  • Multimedia elements can be inserted.
  • Preset color themes are available.
  • Hotkeys can be used for better navigation and control.

Open Mind has an organized set of functions to access the editing tools with a click. To complement this, the interface is also user-friendly, making it an ideal tool for beginners who don’t want to spend a lot of time understanding different functions or parameters. The developers conducted several tests to ensure the robustness of these features. Results showed that Open Mind carried out these tasks quickly and without making any errors.

Despite its simplicity, Open Mind does not compromise on functionality. Users can also duplicate bubbles, delete items, or embed a file into the mind map. The tool also lets users print or export the information to a file (DOC, PDF, or PPT). All of these features make Open Mind a powerful mind-mapping tool.
