Novamind is intended to help you create visual maps, which are commonly used for studying and organizing ideas. Thus, this tool may come in handy for students and professionals alike.
The program has an easy-to-use interface. Most of the work is done by dragging and dropping the desired elements onto the working space and drawing the connecting lines to express the relations among them. Fortunately, the tool comes with a library of forms but you can still use your own by importing them from external files.
It is great that the tool can re-arrange the elements whenever you drag any of them to a new position. Likewise, you can make more space and focus on what is important at the moment by collapsing other topics. Similarly, it can take a completely different appearance if you switch themes. In this respect, there are multiple nicely designed themes; still, you can create your own projects and save them for future work.
In addition to the map-creation mode, the program supports switching to presentation mode. Although it is excellent that the tool can convert your notes to a rather decent presentation without further intervention, you may also want to customize it to your own taste. For instance, you can use a path including zooms at particular topics. Last but not least, it is possible to export the presentation to other tools, such as PowerPoint.
With many probable scenarios in which it can be a great help, Novamind is likely to be appreciated for such tasks as presenting your ideas to a team and organizing study topics and concepts.
The subscription is paid on a monthly or annual basis, but there is also a free subscription which limits the number of topics to 25.
