The Pro version of PersonalBrain is twice as expensive as Lucidchart, but far less adaptable. Lucidchart offers mind mapping in addition to several other shape libraries.
Build diagrams for business, personal, educational, and technical use cases—all for one flat fee.
Skip the hassle of downloads and installations. Because it’s web-based, Lucidchart is available on any operating system, browser, or device.
If you’re on the go, try viewing mind maps with our iPad application or working with the free offline app.
Our mind maps offer the premium features you expect: automatic clean-up, text import and export, and interactivity.
You can even use keyboard shortcuts and color-coded levels for a fast, yet organized experience. Publish to a variety of file formats or share online.
There's a better mind mapping alternative to PersonalBrain. With Lucidchart, you get much more than mockups.
Making complex diagrams shouldn’t be hard. Lucidchart was built with ease-of-use and automation in mind. Enjoy the advantages of themed layouts, tons of customizable templates, drag-and-drop usability, and a clean, intuitive interface.
Lucidchart not only works for Mac, it’s also Visio compatible. You can seamlessly import your .VDX, .VSDX, and .VSD files directly into the Lucidchart editor and even export files back to Visio if you need.
Our huge selection of integrations makes Lucidchart the perfect solution for your team and their favorite tools and apps from GSuite to MS Office to Atlassian. Add diagrams to your next presentation.
Lucidchart is hosted on the web which makes sharing and displaying the most up to date copy that much easier to achieve. When you're finished, you can share on social media or share with a link or email. You can also download your diagrams in a variety of image formats.
