Before starting a new creative project, creating a mind map can help you brainstorm ideas, structure your thoughts and come up with a plan.

miMind is one of the apps you can use to help you with all these steps.

The application can be used to open existing projects (MM, OPML or MIND) or to create new ones from scratch.

Depending in the type of project you are working on, you can choose the type of mind map you prefer: free-form, curved line tree, direct line tree, cornered list, cornered tree, simple tree curved, simple tree direct, simple list cornered, simple tree cornered, continuous tree or continuous list.

This way, you can use your mind map to stay focused, set goals, color code assignments, set up budgets or flash cards, write complex novels, plan work or home projects.

Additionally, you can choose the color palette you like best, while also inserting hyperlinks, images, texts, or shapes to each node. Adding a new child or sibling, as well as duplicate, reattach or remove them can be achieved within seconds.

Once you are done with your chart, you can save it and share it with your colleagues. This is why you first need to choose one of the available export formats: miMind, JPEG, PNG, PDF, SVG, HTML, OPML, XML, Text, BMP or TGA.

If you go for PDF, you can configure additional parameters such as pagination, margins, and scale.

All in all, miMind can prove of great value to all those who like to organize their work before actually starting it. Due to the flurry of customization options, the mind maps can be used for a wide range of purposes, it all depends on your imagination.
