App of the Week | Issue 26

Mindmeister (web/iOS/Android)

In the haze of information overload that is study week, it’s easy to be overwhelmed by all the shit you’re meant to know. Sometimes, putting it into order in a way that makes sense to you can help to soothe the hysteria. Time to make your Year 9 English teacher proud and create some sweet mind-maps.

If you love mind-maps but hate paper, Mindmeister is the app for you. Use Mindmeister to create digital mind-maps on your computer or tablet – you could structure potential exam essays, map out notes on a particular topic, or procrastinate by brainstorming ideas for your OE when you finally get out of this joint.

You can share your mind-maps with friends and they can edit them if you allow it. Either way, like your Year 9 English teacher said, failing to plan is planning to fail, so don’t plan to fail. Use Mindmeister, conserve paper, access it anywhere, and pass that exam.
