I’ve owned iThoughtsX for years. It’s the most powerful mindmapping Mac app I’ve used, and I’ve migrated to it for occasional use ever since MindNode (which I preferred for its ease of use) moved to a subscription model. But I use it reluctantly because it’s not as transparent or pleasant to use. Powerful yes, though.

I also own Marked 2, but I hesitate to use it with iThoughts because of the clunk-factor.

WriteMapper is a very good looking app that’s easy to use, beautiful to look at, and has the export features built in. And it’s cheaper than iThoughts+Marked.

I’d more seriously consider it if I did more mindmapping, but I prefer to write blocks of text in outline format for most things.

If I were more focused on mindmapping (and export) I’d probably subscribe to MindMeister, which has the good looks (and much the same color palette) as WriteMapper. It also has a nice one-click toggle to Outline Mode… yet those modes are never as good as a real outliner.
