Software Overview

MatchWare MindView is a mind mapping application used to brainstorm, organize, and present ideas. The application was formerly known as OpenMind before it became MindView.

The application comes with a variety of features to help you work productively and manage your project. You can choose from 6 interchangeable views to analyze your ideas, create Gantt charts and project timelines, and add task descriptions with resources. MindView integrates with Microsoft Office, as it supports Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Project file formats.

MindView also helps you collaborate with other users. The application's "Pack and Go" feature allows you to send mind maps with embedded attached files. The software provides a shared work space for real-time multi user editing and you can apply read and write access for specific files and lock mind map branches.

MatchWare MindView is a handy tool for business Windows users that need help brainstorming, organizing, and presenting their ideas. It provides useful features intended to help you work more productively, mange your projects, and collaborate with others. However, the mind mapping software field is crowded with other quality programs, such as XMind, Freemind, and Mindjet. The decision comes down to what program fits your needs (single or multiple user license) and your price point.
