What is MindMeister?

MindMeister is an online mind mapping tool that allows users to capture, develop and share ideas visually. Adding mind maps to your notes allows you to share brainstormed ideas in an easily navigable and visual format. 

In order to add a mind map to your note, you'll need to be logged in to both MindMeister and MeisterTask (with the same account). Users of MindMeister Basic can create and store three mind maps completely free of charge.
