MindMup: 100% free mindmapping tool

Mindmapping helps students and teachers brainstorm ideas, plan projects and revise material. MindMup is a great web app for creating mind maps quickly and easily. It is 100% free, and integrates directly with Google Drive. MindMup lives up to its claim of being ‘zero-friction’. Keyboard shortcuts make creating a map very quick. Getting started is as easy as pressing the space bar or double-clicking to start typing. You can add images and attachments to a map, and also work collaboratively with others using the Google Drive integration. Collaborative maps (enabled via an extension) also auto-save in Google Drive-style. Once you have created a map, it can be exported to a variety of formats or embedded in a website or blog.

How do I get it?

The best way to get started with MindMup is to connect it to Google Drive, following the steps below.

1. Open your Google Drive.
2. Click Create > Connect more apps (right at the bottom)
3. Search for MindMup (top right corner)
4. Click Connect and then OK to add.
5. To create a new mind map, simply open Google Drive and click Create > Mind Map.

Simplify’s tips

If for any reason you cannot connect MindMup to Google Drive as described above, you can also install it from the Chrome Web Store or access it directly via (in any browser). If you do use either of these methods, you will need to change the save location of each mind map to Google Drive.
