Teacher Review

Create as many maps as you want, use as many shapes and icons, and SimpleMind will allow you to put everything on a single canvas if you’d like. From daily itineraries to business tasks, SimpleMind can be used as a productivity app to manage tasks at hand.

SimpleMind Lite is just as the name implies: simple. This mind mapping app has an intuitive interface that lets you create a mind map in a snap.

First, pick your style. You can choose from a variety of options like bright colors, chart, grayscale, and colors on black. Then to add nodes, you can either click the plus sign on your current node or the Add Child Topic button from the toolbar. To insert text into a node, click the T on the current node or double-click inside the shape.

  • Undo and redo buttons
  • Print and zoom options
  • Freeform or horizontal layouts
  • Color palettes and custom colors
  • Easy deletion and clipboard options
You can use SimpleMind Lite for free and without ads. But if you would like additional features like Dropbox and Google Drive sync, media and document options, or app customizations, check out the paid version.
