      The GUI is a little outdated, but powerful free alternative to XMind. I also defined custom shortcuts (which is possible in the app), which made life a lot easier! If you just want to make a MindMap, and do not mind the way it looks, this is the free alternative to XMind you're looking for!

      Loriot It's XMind but without that ugly and predefined arrow. You can put the rectangle or Circle wherever you want!! And colour it even more easily! Don't be afraid of premium account, you don't have to buy anything! With basic account (free) you have everything you wanted, even exportation to pdf or xls. Wonderfull! (I wonder what premium account does)
