TheBrain development team has been hard at work developing key user requests and designing new features for expansive knowledgebase creation and easy idea capture.

This new release is all about tailoring your PersonalBrain to your unique work patterns. From floating your Brain transparently on your desktop to synchronizing it to the WebBrain cloud, your PersonalBrain becomes an extension of your own mind for faster thinking and intelligent access to your information.

You can download PersonalBrain and try it out today. If you are not sure if you want to upgrade, remember to create a new Brain or grab a template Brain from our templates page to play with because reverting your Brain back to version 5 takes a little doing. (PersonalBrain 6 has a new augmented database!!)

PersonalBrain 6 is loaded with new features. Here’s what’s on top on the list:



1. One Click WebBrain Publishing – Share your Brain with the world on Publish publicly, unlisted or privately. Send links to key Thoughts or areas in your Brain and track comments from the community. Published Brains can be embedded in blogs or Web sites and are searched and indexed by all search engines.





2. Secure Synchronization and Backup Get access to your complete digital memory and knowledgebase anywhere. Synchronize your Brain across multiple machines, platforms and location. One step WebBrain publishing gives you instant access to information online or offline on the desktop.

3. Increased Performance – Work at the speed of Thought with twice the navigation speed powered by an augmented database backend. PersonalBrain’s dynamic user interface enables you to visually navigate across all relevant information quickly and intelligently. PersonalBrain 6 makes digital Brains even faster and more reliable. This increased speed further enhances the ability to easily create Brains with hundreds of thousands of Thoughts while increasing productivity.


tpmode4. Transparent Visualization – Connect your thinking to your work patterns. With PersonalBrain 6’s transparent mode you can float your Brain over your desktop or any application while still working. This revolutionary view enables Thought visualization to be seamlessly integrated with any activity.

With PersonalBrain 6 in addition to easy drag and drop of files, you can now right click on any file and use the “Send To” command to instantly add it to their Brain. Now, no file is more than two clicks away from your Brain.

Action-oriented PersonalBrains enhance productivity. With PersonalBrain 6 you can gain control of projects and to-dos with checkbox lists in notes, a more powerful calendar, and Google calendar synchronization.


augment7. Augmented Thought Type Visualization –  Create key information types and tag information with a wide variety of attributes to further delineate information and contextualize tasks. PersonalBrain 6’s new Thought Type display lets you visualize relationships between types and centralizes management of types.
