A Fresh Look for Mindomo with HTML5


One of our most  important 2014 resolutions has come true – we finally made the shift from Flash to HTML5. Mindomo is now synced with today’s always-on evironment: the app runs smoothly on all devices, including the mobile ones, it’s lighter, tidier, and way faster than before.

Thanks to Mindomo’s beautified interface, all mind mappers, from first time users to power users, can easily take advantage of what our app has to offer. In the old version, you could access the same feature from different areas of the map. The new version simplifies things because some of the elements on your map were rearranged. It’s great since the functionality in the old version is still here, but the app is more user-friendly.  Your map canvas looks tidier, with plenty of room for your ideas, and you are a right-click away to customizing your topics.

So, let’s cut to the chase and see what the new Mindomo 7 is about:

Working easier, faster and safer

  • You don’t need to install any plugins in order to work with Mindomo’s new version
  • The editor will load around 3 times faster
  • Working on maps will be faster and smoother
  • The information in your maps is safer due to the HTTPS protocol used in the editing process
  • You can automatically check the text in your map thanks to the browser’s spell checker

Working on a friendly GUI

  • Your map canvas has widened and became tidier because the functionality in the top and bottom toolbars was rearranged
  • The features from the top menu are now closer to the topics you are working on. Right click on the topic and you’ll be able to customize it easily.
  • You can style your map theme by using different designs, from flat to gradient ones

Working with new features

  • With the drag and drop feature, you can easily attach images, videos and links to your mind maps and they will work right away
  • Paste images from the clipboard directly to your mind map while using Chrome, Firefox or Safari
  • Take advantage of the improved PDF export

Mind mapping with the new Mindomo should feel more natural and easier than before. Of course, you have to get used to its rearrangement and the new features. This is where our support team comes in.
If you have any questions or you are looking for a certain feature, give them a shout at support@mindomo.com or on the Mindomo chat. They will be more than glad to guide you through Mindomo 7.
Also, feel free to give us your feedback here, in the comments section below.

  Keep it smart, simple and creative!

  1. Felicitaciones es una herramienta que ha evolucionado para lograr una mejor presentación de los trabajos en la Universidad, que sirve en el desarrollo de las actividades profesionales con ello es posible realizar mejores exposiciones
    GRACIAS

  2. Terrific job, you guys! Thank you.

    I do a lot of project management, work and training.

    One thing that the practice has needed for a very long time is a mindmapping tool that is powerful, flexible, and collaborative at the front end, and then plays well with project schedulers and other applications once scope is defined. Transparent, reasonable price points would be nice too (Mindjet).

    Now that Mindomo is HTML 5 based, project management teams can facilitate their project definition and early planning by having that tool in their toolbox.

    Again thanks.

    Cheers,

  3. Simply amazing Mindomo!

    I’m so glad that you all have decided to traverse this application into a non-proprietary format from which anyone can tap into from any platform.

    Bravo!

    • Hi, Peter. You can work on 2 or more maps at the same time by opening them on different browser tabs. Apps like Gmail and Google Docs use this mechanism, so we adopted it because it feels more natural for the user. You can contact us at support@mindomo.com if you have any other questions about the new version.

  4. Dear mindomo.
    I would highly appreceate of you would a bit work on optimizing it to mobile.
    Now at least I can load it. Thx for that!
    Some concrete bug with iOS 7-iPhone5s/ipad4
    – mindmap items of the main menu have static position.
    – when opening it, the Zoom in/out is very hard using fingers.

    Wish all the best!
    David

    • Hello, David. At the moment, our app isn’t completely optimized for iPhone 5s. Also, we’re aware of the zooming issue. We will soon start to work on an improved mobile version, which will also work on iPhone 5s. If you encounter any other issues, please contact us at support@mindomo.com .

  5. Thanks for updating Mindomo!
    I must say though, that it is (on my system) not faster, rather (a lot) slower than before (with Flash).

    Is there something I can do to improve zoom speed/smoothness?

    I will try various systems to see where the improvements are evident.
    (win7x64, Firefox)

    Thanks,
    James

      • It’s a PC(Intel)/win7x64 based OS (as I wrote in my comment). But it’s a virtual (office) machine and as such the graphics drivers may be the issue. We generally have issues with everything that calls dx9/dx10/dx11.dll’s. At my home PC it works a lot better although I wish I could speed up mousewheel zoom by holding for example Alt or Ctrl simultaneously.
