Outlining

- For PC, Microsoft One-note is probably the best outlining software

- For Mac, OmniOutliner stands at the top.

- Don't forget, pretty much every word processor has this capability

- Plenty of mobile apps do this great too

MindMapping

Mindmapping is a little more specialized in that you need an app specifically made to do it. Because I don't mind map a lot, I've stuck with the free version of MindJet. But if you really like this, I would check out this Lifehacker article highlighting some other mandmaps too.
