Go beyond mind maps with Lucidchart
Cloud-based software that works anywhere, anytime
With Lucidchart’s cloud-based software, your work is always just a click away—outdated software, installation, and lost work are never an issue. XMind’s download-only software limits its functionality to the desktop.
Collaborative features that keep up with your team
Because XMind only works on a desktop, its collaborative capabilities are limited. Lucidchart allows you to work in the same document simultaneously with collaborators, and then share, publish, and print your work instantly.
Dynamic integrations with endless possibilities
Lucidchart lets you easily connect to all of the apps you use every day, including G Suite, Microsoft Office, Slack, Salesforce, Atlassian, and more. In contrast, XMind provides limited connections to other software and requires users to work in their environment.
Functionality that goes beyond mind maps
XMind is great for creating mind maps, but its other diagramming abilities are extremely limited. Lucidchart lets you build dynamic mind maps, construct org charts from CSV files, draw floorplans, create flowcharts, and much more within a single platform.

I love the fact that it is based on the cloud and there is no need to install any software on my computer and I can also assign other collaborators or members of my team remotely.
