Both organic and speed mind maps can be used to explore and capture your ideas on any given topic or project. However, organic mind maps use curved branches to replicate your natural thinking processes, much like that of the hand-drawn mind map. Organic mind maps allow you to adjust the size and shape your branches, giving you more creative control over the design of your mind map.

Speed Maps provide a more structured layout for your mind map, with 4 different set styles for you to choose from, including Box Map, Direction Map, Line Map and Gradient Map. This view is ideal for when you want to quickly capture ideas in a pre-set format.

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.

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 an image to share with others.
