Using MindMeister on a small screen? We discovered thatmany of our notebook users were doing a lot of widget opening &closing, only to access various functions in the sidebar. To avoid thisyou can now rearrange all sidebar widgets as desired using simple drag& drop (IE currently not supported). Learn more

Finally, we’ve updated the MindMeister user interface witha fresh new look. We strived for a more streamlined, clean andbusiness-like design, reduced some of the pink and paved the way forupcoming features – think folders, more branding and integration – andwe’re pretty happy with the result. Please let us know what you think!
