Mindmaps are all the rage these days. They allow you to organise your thoughts on paper, or on screen. They are a wonderful way to present concepts to students as they facilitate memorisation. Here are 4 apps that will allow you to create your mindmaps easily on your tablet or smartphone.


SimpleMind+, iOS and Android

SimpleMind+ offers a very complete free version. The app is impressively easy to use. You can create, edit and reorganise your maps with just the tip of your finger. The pro version adds functionalities like linking different maps, insert pictures and edit colors. Maps can be saved in Dropbox.


DrawExpress, iOS and Android

This astonishing app lets you draw anything with your finger and will transform it to the most resembling geometrical shape. The app is very user-friendly and works surprisingly well. The whole experience is very natural and intuitive.


MindNode, iOS
