Our blog posts share what our students and staff have to say about selected apps. In this blog post, Melissa explores the pros and cons of MindMeister, a concept mapping app.

MindMeister: Pros & Cons


PRO: You can create a concept map however you like: content, format, and structure are all in your hands! You can even use emoji. mm2
PRO: After you make a concept map, you can export it in a variety of formats (e.g., PDF, MS Word, MS PowerPoint), email it, or print it directly from the app. mm1
PRO: Are you a visual thinker? No problem: MindMeister lets you store more information than just words. You can add pictures, notes, links, attachments, and tasks.
CON: The app is difficult to use on phones because of the size of the text. But it’s easy to use on computers and tablets. mm3

Overall Impressions: MindMeister allows for flexibility in creating a concept map that works best for you. The app takes this idea a bit further by allowing you to add links, notes, attachments, task lists, and pictures to your map and then allowing you to export it into a variety of different formats. With all of these options, MindMeister is a perfect tool for studying since it could be easily adapted to any of your courses
