Mind mapping is a great way of graphically organizing your ideas, and works well on big projects or to present connections between ideas. It is mostly used in brainstorming sessions for one.
MindNode is a simple and free mind mapping tool, for people not looking for anything to elaborate yet wanting to get initiated to the graphical idea organizing tool. You can create large mind maps and use different colors for each different idea and connection and choose between different types of brush strokes with MindNode, a good way of differentiating the connection types in your graph. Although it will never feel as natural as actually drawing on board, it is easy enough that anyone can create advanced mind maps in seconds.
MindNode is not highly advanced though, so don't expect lots of shapes, tones or layer possibilities. On the other hand, MindNode does offer keyboard support, which, if you take the time to learn it, will allow you to sketch up your mind map even faster.
To share your brainstorm session, MindNode lets you print the document or export it in any way of a number of formats.
Although not highly advanced, MindNode is a good program to get to grips with mind mapping and connect your ideas easily.
