Cool Tool: Ayoa

Wednesday, July 1, 2020

Mind mapping and task management collide seamlessly with technology via Ayoa. Launched this year by Creative Genius, Ayoa is a cloud-based mind mapping tool that boosts productivity, creativity, and memory.

Sometimes referred to as a brainstorm or spider diagram, a mind map is a visual thinking tool used to capture information and ideas. As a first step to mind mapping, users start with a main idea and then add new thoughts or considerations as branches off the central concept.


Cloud-based software like Ayoa is a natural fit in today's increasingly remote workforce. The tool creates a digital space that is conducive to team brainstorming and enables remote workers to collaborate with ease. Users can share mind maps with other account holders and give fellow users select permissions to view, edit, comment, and add branches to the virtual boards.

The software's versatility and built-in task management functions enable users to move their projects from concept to completion.

Ayoa is available to download on desktop (Windows and Mac) and Apple and Android devices. No-cost basic access enables users to create and edit up to five boards. Advanced access options are available, as are demonstrations on ayoa.com.
