m3 - Mobile Mind Mapper is a mind mapping program that runs on any device that has a web browser. It uses special technology that allows you to run it and access all of your mind maps even without a network connection.
Because m3 runs in your browser, it can be used on all platforms, including Windows, OS X, Android, iOS, and Linux.
m3 is in the early stages of development, however it can be used for viewing complicated maps created by Freemind and Freeplane, or creating your own basic maps.

Main New Features
See the change log below for a complete list of new features and bug fixes.
- Open the app by going to http://glenreesor.ca/m3. The following platforms are known to work:
- Desktop: Chrome, Firefox
- Android: Chrome, Firefox
- iOS: Safari 9.1, Chrome, Firefox (Brave does not work)
- Create your own maps, or import existing maps from Freemind or Freeplane
- If you're using Chrome, you can add an icon to your home screen, and it will look and behave like a "real" app on your device.
- Provide feedback, get help, or look for announcements at the m3-users discussion forum.
Important Things to Know
- m3 stores your mind maps in your browser's offline storage. If you delete that, your maps will be gone. So don't do that 🙂
- If you have already used m3, it doesn't update to the next version until you load the page twice, due to a quirk of a technology called app cache
