What is the best mind mapping program for Mac OS X?

Because I’m a PC user, Mac applications of mind mapping software don’t get as much attention as they should. That’s why I created a brief survey to identify the best mind mapping application for Mac OS X:


It only contains two questions, so you can complete it very quickly. In addition to asking you which program is the best, I’m also trying to learn more about WHY you rate it so highly.

I look forward to your feedback!

    Your survey only allows a single choice. No app is a “do it all” app. Some are much better at presentation display, others excel at file management, some are really good at constructing mind maps rapidly and intuitively, a couple are highly useful and cost very little, a couple are really good for using with younger students, but lack sophistication for complex mapping, and so on.
    I use multiple mind mapping apps to meet my needs. No single app is the “best.”

    Also, the app on your survey should be “PersonalBrain” not PersonalMind”

    Would love to learn the results of this survey as I am trying to find the answer to this question too. Thanks for doing this.
