Customer Reviews

So much potential

I wish more love were given to this app. It could be an amazing companion to the desktop app. Sadly though it hasn't changed since its initial minimal feature set release. It still doesn't have native resolution on iPhone 6 and it is completely broken on iOS 9 (though I imagine this will be fixed fairly quickly) and some features (the inbox) don't even work on iOS 8.

At least update it to make it remember the last thought you were looking at when you re-open the app. The Brain is by far the most expensive software I use and it seems to be languishing big time.

Still good

I still like this app and yes the whole inbox thing is kind of goofy(why not use the standard iOS share sheets?), but I know the team is hard at work on the next major release. For those asking about iOS 9, the developer is aware of the issue, and they have submitted a corrected version to Apple pending approval. Also hope they will take advantage of Spotlight search in an update.

iOS 9

TheBrain has announced that an update for iOS 9 is going through the Apple approval process - so, yes, be patient, it will be available soon, we hope.
