This mind mapping app brings order to all your big ideas

No two minds work alike. Some function best when they focus, immerse in an idea and marinate in it a bit. Others stay open and know a eureka moment of inspiration is right around the corner, ready to pounce when it's least expected. Some curate ideas and stockpile them for the perfect moment. Some attack when faced with a problem-solving event.

If you're like Kevin McCallister, maybe your ideation and problem-solving come with a very tactile, straight-forward solution. But for those who want to develop rock-solid plans and flesh out their best ideas logically, framework is often key. The MindMaster mind mapping software offers that framework to create fresh new ideas without losing momentum or critical details.

Mind mapping can help bring all your thoughts, plans, and ideas from your brain into a visual reality, so MindMaster makes it easy to structure those thoughts and ideas, find connections, gather supporting data, and help bring form to your great notions.

MindMaster lets you catalog your brainstorms in the way that works best for you. You can choose from 12 different structures like a tree map, a timeline, a circle map, or others. You can construct it using 33 different themes, each suited to a particular style from business mapping to more personal pursuits. And users have access to over 700 different clipart images to customize your mind map any way you like.

Meanwhile, each bullet point on your map can be supported with important details, like callouts, relationships, summaries, marks, notes, hyperlinks, and more. There's even a brainstorming mode, which allows you to record ideas during group or individual brainstorming in one pane, color code each as you go, then later drag them all to another pane to generate a mind map.

It's also a simple method for tracking real-life tasks, helping to visualize goal points and dates so progress can be monitored at a glance in real-time.

Edraw's MindMaster retails for $129, but right now, it's on sale for only $49, a 62 percent savings off the regular price.
