Mind Mapping App

Anyone using a Mind Mapping App they like on the Surface Pro?

On my desktop, I use 2 - Xmind for my own brainstorming and Wisemapping for ones I need to share with clients (web-based).

I want one for my Surface Pro 3 that I can use when facilitating brainstorming sessions with groups. I dislike relying on web-based tools when doing these sessions as the wireless connections can be spotty in some facilities.

Xmind is awesome but slow to load and I am worried it would be too resource intense for the Surface Pro 3. So I thought an app might work better. Any ideas?

I use Mind Manager, and it works great, especially the pen interface. I have used Mind Manager for so long that I don't know if there is anything better, and I'm reluctant to change, because it really works for me.

Thanks for the suggestion of Mind8. I had avoided it because the ratings weren't that great on it.

I did install Xmind and it actually seems to work quite well so perhaps I will stick with it for a while.

When you say slow to load... what kind of system are you running it on? Spill the details on CPU, Memory, Disk HDD/SSD.

I7, 12GB Ram, hard drive.

Just upgraded to latest version so it seems to upload quicker now. And did upload well on the Surface Pro 3 as well.
