What Lucidchart does better

  1. Cloud-based for your convenience

    While MindManager is a download-only software, Lucidchart lives on the cloud, so you don’t have to worry about downloading it to your computer or updating it. Use Lucidchart from any computer, on any operating system, and from anywhere. 

  2. Fully functional across all operating systems

    Although MindManager is available for both Windows and Mac, you’ll only have access to about half of MindManager's features for Mac. All of Lucidchart’s advanced features are available regardless of the operating system––PC, Mac, or Linux. 

  3. Collaborative for more unified, efficient teamwork

    Collaborate in real time with Lucidchart’s cloud-based platform. You can work together on the same document at the same time, share links with different levels of access, comment directly in documents, and more. None of this is possible with a desktop software like MindManager.

  4. Easy to use and intuitive

    Don’t waste time with MindManager’s outdated interface and limited formatting. Lucidchart’s simple, intuitive workspace, which offers easy-to-use mind map shapes and hundreds of templates to make diagramming quick and easy.

  5. Compatible with your mobile devices

    MindManager only lets you view diagrams on the mobile app, not create or edit them. In Lucidchart, you can view, edit, and share your diagrams across all of your devices with mobile apps for Android and iOS.
