Overview
The next generation of MindMup - a zero-friction, collaborative, free online mindmapping tool.  MindMup 2.0 brings much better Google Drive/Google apps integration. Here are the highlights:

- Screen layout and options organised similar to other Google Drive apps so you can get started easier
- Support for multiple Google accounts logged on at the same time
- Show previews in Drive, so you can share and discover maps easier
- Attach files from Google Drive to map nodes
- Add images from Google Photos to map nodes
- Argument visualisation, productivity mode and several visual themes

"If you are looking to create a mind-map online, MindMup is the app I would recommend the most. MindMup is the sort of app everyone dreams of finding online. It’s open-source, free and integrated with all the best tools. It’s also designed by people who use the app, so it’s efficient and effective. And unlike so much free software, it looks great too." - MakeUseOf (http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/try-mindmup-mind-mapping-via-google-drive/) 

"MindMup is super-simple, lightweight, and generally a joy to use." - PC World (http://www.pcworld.com/article/2032818/review-mindmup-is-a-free-effortless-way-to-create-mind-maps-in-moments.html)

The UI stays out of your way and lets you get your ideas out." - Time Management Ninja (http://timemanagementninja.com/links/app-of-the-week-mindmup/) 

"If you like to plan and brainstorm by creating mind maps to link together ideas, MindMup is a great browser-based program that helps you get organized with lots of features." - LifeHacker (http://lifehacker.com/mindmup-maps-your-brain-in-the-browser-614853279)

It is really user friendly and a great tool in my drive. Being a manager I need to collaborate and have quick catch up meetings at times .It easy to take notes and save them as a mind map to get back to.

It is quite user friendly for starters, and can be used to quickly make some mindmaps. However, the "share" option is often broken, and collaboration is quite hard. It has quite poor customizability though, and the layout of the nodes becomes annoying and gets in the way of some bigger projects, which decreases its readability as well.

I have been using this product for 2 years at school and work. I find it very easy to use and intuitive, especially when you learn the shortcut keys. I suggest making shortcuts more prominent. Especially for one of the most useful functions - copying an entire branch and pasting it into a doc so that it appears as a bulleted list. This isn't listed at all. I use this to store notes, articles (embedded links work really well), screenshots and free form ideas. If you don't like clutter, you can contract a branch to make it cleaner. I find the autosave features works really well and use that for all my mindmaps. I have recommended it to many people, but it seems to work best for people who are visual learners. Suggested Improvements: 1) make connecting nodes from other branches nicer/cleaner - it's currently clunky 2) fix the requirement to authenticate your account repeatedly

Its been really helpful - I screen shot my mindmaps because I have had issues saving on occasion. Its pretty reliable however and loss of data has been rare. But I play on the side of caution. Very intuitive, which makes ideas fun and easy to explore

I tried 4-5 other mindmap tools, by far this is the best, simplest, most convenient to use. I use for mapping lesson materials, very useful app for teachers

All of my mindmup files have disappeared from my google drive, and when I log into mindmup, it says I have no account. This is incredibly frustrating and represents a loss of a huge number of hours creating programs.

We first learned of using Mind Mup at UTA in the Nursing Program. This innovative way of presenting information greatly improved on the simple chart method and trying to cram information into small little boxes. Our excellent instructors are always looking to improve their methods. Mind Mup allows for individual creativity and expression while conforming to an easy to follow style.

I'm a paying customer. I am happy with the basic functionality. However it allows saving to google drive, and when it does so, it does NOT do this with autosave on. Nor does it provide a highly visible user warning. The devs said they do this to enable collaboration due to some technical issue on google drive. Bottom line is it lets you create large docs which are not saved, and you will not notice. I have just lost a significant amount of work once again due to this. I can't afford to use a tool which doesn't prioritize saving of user-entered data. I can not recommend this app due to this one showstopper behavior.
