“Draw unique and memorable mind maps, store them in the cloud for free and access them anywhere.

At last it is possible to create a mind map as individual and easy to imprint on your mind as one drawn by hand on paper. The mind maps you create with Connected Mind are even better as you can easily include images and shapes and you have a whole rainbow of colors and a selection of fonts at your disposal.

 

There is no limit to the number of maps you can create and you can store them in the free cloud storage provided. There is no need to create an account. Simply sign in with your Google or GMail credentials and your maps can be stored in the cloud on a google database.

Once stored in the cloud, you can access your mind maps from any computer that has Google Chrome installed.

 

Works on Google Chrome.”
