xLine is the easiest mind-mapping app, the best way of brainstorming. It's perfect for idea collection and thought structuring. It allows you to visually organise your thoughts or ideas.

A mind map is considered a great way to brainstorm and generate more ideas. It helps you create a number of small ideas from one big idea, to see how different ideas could be connected, and to create a plan of action.

Visualize your plan of action and carry out those strategies with your team. xLine is your ideal partner for brainstorming new ideas which can be brought to life on mind maps that resemble the informational structure of your brain using text, shapes, and images.

Compatible OPML format.

Seems okay

Seems okay as a mind mapper. However, I'm running 10.6.8 and the program continues to crash after trying to insert a new idea from the main idea. Hope stability will be improved so that I can use the program.

The best I’ve found so far for Mac & iOS ...

I have tried to find a mind mapping program that syncs between the Mac & iOS versions for so long. MindNode syncs well with iCloud; but it's just too limited in features. SimpeMind & iThoughts supposedly sync with DropBox; but the method is difficult to implement in the case of iThoughts and I was never able to get SimpleMind to work at all. Several others (like NovaMind) are great Mac programs; but their iPad versions are sill coming in the future and who know what syncing will be like once they do?

THEN I tried xLine ... a beautiful program that syncs perfectly using iCloud, provides notes, an outline and several ways to make the map distinctive, etc. It looks & behaves like a Mac program! I hope this program continues to grow & improve.

I’ve had a few issues with sorting the outline manually. I am told you can do that easily on the Mac and will soon be able to do so on the iPad. I probably need to work with it a little more to understand how that works. It would also be nice to have a few more formatting options; Hopefully those improvements will follow with future updates. For now if you are working on the Mac & on the iPad, this is the only mind mapping program I can fully recommend.

Interesting approach to mindmapping, but needs improvement

This program has an interesting approach to mindmapping, particularly with the side panel displaying the contents of the mindmap in outline form. That said, it falls short because (A) it's seemingly not possible to zoom in and out on a large mindmap without a lot of mouse work (not very ergonomic) and (B) notes are discarded on OPML export. I'm hoping the upcoming version 2 mentioned in the product description improves on these two areas because it's a good program overall.
