Customer Reviews

Great Ideas, Needs Fixing Up

I love the way the app works and the features it has. I wanted to mention there's a bug where the edit button doesn't do anything but I noticed when I press it and go to notes, you can see that menu behind the screen as it transitions by flipping to notes. I also wish it were a little less sluggish but that just comes with fixing up the software. I really like the fluidity of it once you learn how to use it and I plan to use it more. Great app.

So much potential, unrealized

I'll start by saying I love The Brain. But this app is a butchered version that realizes little of The Brain's promise or potential. I understand the imperative to drive people to their paid offerings, but I don't get a better version of this app if I sign up, so what's the point? I want to use my iPad as my primary device for managing my Brains, and I want it to have what the desktop version has -- namely, second-level visualization, types, and themes.

I'd gladly pay for the service (or the app itself) if the app was a more thought-out and feature complete. At the moment, however, it's neither.

Could be great, but freezes constantly

Love the brain software, but the app freezes almost every time I try to copy something to the brain to use as an attachment. Fixing that glitch would be a huge improvement and likely result in four or five stars.

Also would be nice to send things to the brain with out having to open in each time. For instance, it would be great to copy things to the brain and have them all waiting there as attachments the next time I open the app or logon on my computer. As is, it opens the brain each time, which results in it freezing up (see above).
