MindUpFree is a fast and efficient mind mapping App, supporting full keyboard driven by Vim_style shortcuts.

It is really convenient that there is no need to switch input method to manage mind map by shortcuts ( such as fold/unfold, delete, cursor moving, etc.) after inputing Latin, Greek, Russian, Arabic, Syrian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Ivrit/Hebrew characters in a thought node and you can continue to create or modify node by shortcut i/a/o/A/O and input characters with your input method because there is no change on your input method during the procedure of operating and inputing. We believe that this is the way to improve people's productivity.

MindUpFree can also present your contents just like keynote or powerpoint but in mind map style ( try to press ? after running the App ).

  • Text/Image/Attachment/Math/Radial/Bracket thoughts
  • Multi_line thought breaks to single_line thoughts
  • Merging thoughts to be a multi_line thought
  • Import a map to be a branch of current focused thought
  • Export the branch of current focused thought to a new map
  • Bookmark/viewmark for fast moving of the cursor instead of only clicking on thought to set the cursor
  • Mark each node on screen in view mark mode by a char, Then type the char to move cursor on the corresponding node. ( for free version )
  • Mark each node on screen in view mark mode by a char or a string prefixed with 'a' or 'aa',
    Then type the char or string to move cursor on the corresponding node. ( for Mindup.Pro version )
  • Thought Attribute or SubText Attribute in a thought setting (not for free version)
  • Export to PDF/PNG/JPG/SVG
  • Searching even if it's folded
  • Presentation mode present contents as Keynote or PowerPoint but in MindMap way ( try ? after running the App )
  • Multi_thought copy/paste among Tabs
