Coggle is a freeware mind-mapping web application. Like other mind-mapping software, Coggle produces hierarchically structured documents, like a branching tree. This contrasts with conventional collaborative editors, like Google Docs, which provide either linear (text document), or tabular (spreadsheet) document formats.

Its authors promise that it will be "free forever".[1]


Some of Coggle's notable features:[2]

  • Real-time collaboration
  • Sharing with Organisations, individuals, or by private link
  • View and copy previous versions
  • Images
  • Links
  • Markdown text formatting
  • LaTeX math support using MathJax[3]
  • iOS support

Supported file formats

Coggle supports export to PNG image and vector PDF formats, and import from plain-text outlines. There is also support for importing or exporting to the common FreeMind file format.[2]


Coggle was voted amongst the top-5 mind-mapping applications by the readers of Lifehacker in April 2013,[4] three months after the website was first registered.[5]

Coggle has had a strong reception amongst the education community, praised for its simplicity[6] and ease of use[7] compared to other mind-mapping software.

PC World has criticized the visually simple user-interface for hiding too many elements, making advanced feature discovery difficult.[8]
