Mindmup has been praised for its
simple and intuitive interface which allows a short learning curve. One of the
benefits of using Mindmup is that it allows anonymous access therefore users
are not required to signup to use their cloud services.
In brief Mindmup combines editing and productivity user interface aspects
typical for desktop applications, such as keyboard shortcuts, edit history,
right-click menus and toolbars, with online application capabilities such as
cloud storage, easy sharing and enabling users to embed maps in their web sites
