FreeMind on cloud

1-click AWS Deployment 1-click Azure Deployment 1-click Google Deployment

Overview

FreeMind is intended for editing Mind maps, XML/HTML documents, and directory trees. The data is presented to the user as a Mind map. This is achieved with a modular design, which makes it possible to easily write modules, only designing the model of the problem (the data structure), without needing elaborate visual representations.

FreeMind is a good tool to use, if you are not that great at keeping track of projects. It allows you to view sub-tasks, state of sub-tasks and time recording. It has a number of handy tools, such as the ability to view collections of small or middle sized notes, with or without expandable links.

FreeMind is owned by FreeMind (https://sourceforge.net/projects/freemind/) and they own all related trademarks and IP rights for this software.

Cognosys provides hardened images of FreeMind Web Edition on all public cloud i.e. AWS marketplaceand Azure.
