Ayoa Discover our new Mind Mapping tool, Ayoa


From the creators of iMindMap, say hello to our pioneering new tool.

“Linking productivity and planning tools so closely with
mind mapping is a genius step” – Long-term iMindMap User via Facebook

Where is iMindMap?

To be innovative, you have to embrace change. We firmly believe that iMindMap is a great bit of software, something that has allowed users to capture incredible ideas since it was first released in 2006, and it’s still something we’re proud of. Unfortunately, the technology used to develop desktop software is becoming outdated, making development and improvements much slower.

And that’s exactly why we’ve created Ayoa…

Introducing Ayoa

Ayoa Mind Mappings

Ayoa is a cloud-based work management tool that combines Mind Mapping with Task Management features. We’ve taken the best views from iMindMap and paired these with practical and action-based features that allow you to not only generate great ideas, but turn them into reality.

Ayoa is available to download on desktop, web and mobile. Click here to view and download all of Ayoa’s apps.

As a subscription-based tool, Ayoa has a number of pricing plans available depending on the number of people in your team and how often you’d like to pay. We also offer a free, basic version of Ayoa. To find out more, please visit our pricing page.

Ayoa’s Mind Mapping Features

Our Mind Mapping software offers a variety of powerful features designed to enhance your Mind Maps and boost your creative thinking.

Frequently Asked Questions

To give you more info, we’ve provided some FAQs specifically for the iMindMap community – we hope you’ll join us on our new path to creativity.

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.

Learn more about Organic Mind Mapping in Ayoa here and discover how you can get started.

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 purchased iMindMap 11, please rest assured that you are still able to use this and iMindMap 11 will be supported for the foreseeable future. iMindMap 11 and Ayoa are completely separate products so the launch of Ayoa has not affected your iMindMap 11 license. To view the iMindMap 11 Support Guides, please click here.

Whilst Ayoa doesn’t have every Mind Mapping view 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.

We also have lots of 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. For access to Ayoa’s full features and the ability to make unlimited Boards, 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 (SaaS) 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 invite an email address to your Mind Map and they will receive an email invitation. 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 or Task Board on your computer and want to access it on your phone, simply open the Ayoa app on your mobile device and ta-dah, your work will appear ready for you to edit.
