Real Users Say

cnet editors rating

"Edraw Mind Map's templates and examples make it easy to create high-quality mind maps and similar diagrams suitable for any use. It's free for noncommercial and home users."

"The interface takes its visual clues from Office rather than the Explorer-style layout that is typical of modern graphics app, and it gives Edraw a familiar feel."

"While we found Edraw very easy to use at every stage, there is a lot to this tool, and it takes some time to learn all its features. But Edraw Mind Map is well worth the effort."

I've always even been a fan of a business graphics package. It's an easy way to do mind maps, org charts, calendars, room plans, flyers, web pages, and just about every other type of graphic you can imagine. However, at almost US$300 it's not cheap.

Edraw is cheaper, at around US$100, and works in a similar way. A great bargain, however, is that the mind map software of Edraw is also available completely free.
