Similar to other mind-mapping tools.  More complicated to use than comparable programs such as SimpleMind.  Cost is also a bit prohibitive. The user is allowed three free mind-maps; the next level of usage is at time of this review $6 a month.  One could possibly achieve the same results for free with Word Art in Microsoft Word.

Can insert icons, images, 'tags' or 'text notes' and Web links to your mind maps. Printable, but saved maps are stored online on Mindomo's server though.
