The future of Mind Mapping

An idea remains just an idea until actioned. Ayoa brings together the creative power of
Mind Mapping with visual task management capabilities, effective communication and real-time sharing.


iMindMap-style Mind Maps

Explore your imagination with organic, curvilinear branches inspired by the traditional, hand-drawn Mind Map – so you can build a concise overview of even the most detailed projects and expand on your best ideas.

Quick and powerful ideation

Keep the momentum. When an idea strikes, instantly capture it in an Ayoa Mind Map. Quickly arrange your thoughts as branches and then turn them into tasks, all in one efficient space.

Formatting, color and style

Bring your ideas to life with Ayoa’s varied color palette, ideal for creating both professional and creative Mind Maps. Adjust the size, color and style of your branches so you can differentiate between different areas.

Adding images and files

Add images and files

A picture speaks a thousand words. Add images to branches to represent key themes and spark ideas. Upload your own images or select an image from the Unsplash gallery. Turn your Mind Map into a powerful resource hub by adding files to branches, including documents, audio and web links.


Add notes and comments

Expand on your thoughts by adding more detailed notes to branches. Ideal for discussing ideas, use branch comments to ask questions, give feedback or simply show your appreciation for a great idea.

Notes and Comments

Branch voting

Vote for your favorite ideas in a Mind Map by hitting the thumbs up icon. Share your Map with others and they can vote to indicate their favorite suggestions, helping you narrow your focus on your strongest ideas, especially when brainstorming multiple avenues of thought.


Idea Bank

The Idea Bank contains all your stray thoughts until you’re ready to bring them into your Mind Map. Enter your ideas as quickly as they strike, so you never lose a train of thought. Then simply drag these across into your Mind Map as branches wherever they fit best.

Organize your map with ease by placing categories around your branches. Highlight different areas of your Mind Map and outline similarities and correlations between themes and ideas.


Turn your ideas into tasks

An idea remains just an idea until you bring it to life. Transform your ideas into action by turning branches into tasks. Easily send tasks into a Task Board, your Planner (or both!) so you can organize your workload efficiently, and watch your ideas blossom into reality.

Ideas to Tasks




Autohide lets you focus your attention on specific areas by hiding away the rest of your map. Ideal for larger maps or presenting your ideas to others, hide the clutter and focus on what’s important.


Import your iMindMap files

Instantly import all of your existing iMindMap (and iMindMap Cloud) files into Ayoa. With this brand new functionality, there’ll be no limits to your productivity and creativity. Find out more here.

Good news! Organic Mind Mapping is now available in Ayoa. Following principles from the traditional Mind Map and our years of experience in the Mind Mapping industry, Organic Mind Mapping in Ayoa uses curved branches to support your natural thinking processes and aid your creativity.

Why pick a name with a definition, when you can make one up and give it meaning? That was our thinking with ‘Ayoa’ – it’s a name that can grow to mean more as our software does the same. Trust us when we say, there are many exciting things to come.

If you have purchased an iMindMap license in the past, please rest assured that you are still able to use iMindMap and iMindMap will be supported for the foreseeable future. iMindMap and Ayoa are completely separate products so the launch of Ayoa has not affected your iMindMap license.

Whilst Ayoa doesn’t have all the Mind Mapping views that existed in iMindMap, it also has a lot of views and functionality that did not exist (and simply weren’t possible to implement) in iMindMap. With Ayoa, you can collaborate in real-time and access your Mind Maps anywhere in the world on any device connected to the internet, making it fast and agile for quick thought capture.

Good news! We have new features coming soon (including some favorites from iMindMap). Please see our roadmap here for more details.

We do offer a basic, free plan of Ayoa, which you can use free of charge. However, the features on the Basic plan are limited – if you wish to access Ayoa’s full range of powerful features, you can try our 7-day, full feature trial. However, after your trial has expired, you will revert back to the Basic plan. To regain accesss to the full features, you will need to subscribe to our Advanced plan. More information can be found on our Pricing page here.

Unlike iMindmap, Ayoa is a Software as a Service product. Here at OpenGenius, we’re always moving forward – the single biggest benefit of using a SaaS model is we can easily provide continual updates and improvements to our users. Under a perpetual license product, we went through 11 versions of iMindMap – that’s a lot. Now, enhancements can be made instantly accessible to our user base.

The modern world is moving increasingly towards subscription-based products – even the entertainment industry has funneled into a new realm of streaming services; this is because it improves overall user experience and better facilitates growth. Ayoa is web-based which means it is accessible anywhere, from any internet connected device. Work is always safe (even if your laptop dies!) and collaboration is easy. We’re an innovation company, and ultimately we have to move with the times to keep providing our customers with the best software possible.

You can share your Mind Maps with anyone and everyone. Simply ask the people you’d like to share your Map with to create an Ayoa account and invite them to your Mind Map. Depending on the permissions you’ve granted them, they’ll be able to view, edit, comment and add branches to your Mind Map. You can also export your Mind Map as a PDF to share with others.

Yes! By downloading our desktop apps (for Windows and Mac), you’re able to edit your work without an internet connection. Just make sure to connect to the internet at regular intervals to sync your data; you’re only able to permanently save your data by connecting to the internet.

Great news! You can import all of your existing Maps from iMindMap into Ayoa. You can do this by selecting the ‘Import iMindMap IMX File’ from within the Mind Map browser. You also have the option to import files from iMindMap Cloud. You can do this by logging into your Cloud account via Ayoa and then import your Mind Maps from iMindMap Cloud into Ayoa. Please visit our support guide for more information on how to do this.

Ayoa seamlessly syncs all of your work across the devices that you’re using. If you’ve created a Mind Map on your computer and want to access it on your phone, simply open the Ayoa app on your mobile device and ta-dah, your Mind Map will appear exactly how you once left it.*
