iPad Notes Full Screen and iOS 11 implementation (#257 and #258)
zenrain I'm with you, as I work mostly on iOS.

The iOS App is very raw, and it prevents me to buy the full TheBrain and makes me stick with Evernote and MindMeister.
I'm waiting to see how the new version evolves.
Hi metta thank you for your reply.
It's a good use, as TheBrain helps to focus on one single node and the nearby nodes.
I wonder how it's good for Asperger teenagers: I work with some of them, and they find the standard mindmaps too much confusing.
ENH - Ability for inbox to capture more than just web pages (IOS-255)
I agree with zenrain.
It's a huge lack that prevents me from going Pro (and pay for the service): if I pay, I want an app aligned with the latest iOS and its features, and constantly updated, as I rely most of the time on mobile.

So yesterday I received an email with a LinkedIn link, and when I pressed it the OS redirected me to the LinkedIn App, not the browser.
And I wasn't able to simply copy the link and insert as an attachment on the related TheBrain node.

Very disappointing...
A New Experiment - Brain Crowdfunding
Hi all I had another look at Mark's Brains on my iPhone 6s Plus (on the browser).
They look good and well organised. My compliments!

The only issue comes from the Webbrain itself: the name of the nodes are truncated, so I see the date and few characters: really unusable.
I have an iPhone 6s Plus, that has a huge screen: I wander how it renders on more common smartphones, with a smaller screen.

I think the Staff should think about the user experience about the Webbrain: it's a tool that may persuade more people to shift to TheBrain...and eventually pay for it...[wink]
Parent, child and jump thought: how do you use them?
I'm diving into The Brain, and I'm a bit confused about the different types of thoughts.

While it's easy with folders and files, it's not so linear when we talk about other non-linear elements.

i.e. contacts: I have names, their personal profiles, their companies, projects, events, etc...
Each is linked to other contacts, etc...

How do you organize them?
The Challenges of Data Visualization with TheBrain

I genuinely appreciate your contribution to TheBrain software as a member of TheBrain's engineering team.

I am also most grateful for your support for continuing this discussion since I believe it could be a valuable starting point for eventually:
  • making the brains we create more accessible (user friendly and useful) to new users and
  • increasing more widespread support for and adoption of TheBrain software itself.

It's one of the concerns that avoid me to full dive into TheBrain (and shift to the Premium plan).
Metta, I work with many ADDs too, and I had the idea that a mind map (or something similar) would be a good tool.
I haven't experimented with it yet: I fear a "Life" mind map would be too messy for that people.
I'd like to hear your experience with it.
People suffering from Alzheimer may forget even to write down the notes and take them back at the proper time.
There should be a System that integrates note taking and information retrieving, maybe an AI that understand the lifestyle and the routine of the person, and actively takes note and retrieve the information, so that the person receive just a notification.

Anyway I suppose TheBrain would be a good start.

Nice idea!

Nice idea.
I was thinking about something similar for my Cyberbullying project: TheBrain plus a Patreon page.
How are you attracting your maybe patrons on your Patreon page?
How to make your WebBrain findable on the Web?
Thank you for your reprise Metta.

I agree with you: while Harlan says that the Webbrain is "converted" to HTML to the eyes of Google, it's important to know how Google sees the Brain and each single content.
I think we need real feedback if we want to use our Brains for professional (commercial?) purposes, at the same level as we curate the SEO of our websites.

I think the staff of TheBrain should take it seriously: questions like these mean we are really seeing a great potential in TheBrain, that goes beyond the internal uses.
It may take this software to a higher level.

I work in the Psychology field, most of my issues (Cyberbullying, Hikikomori, Internet Addiction, and related) are multi-factorial and intertwined like the Web itself, so even a mind map is too simple.
A 3D mind map (like a Brain) is the best solution.

Anyway, I see embedding the Brain into a web page is the best thing to do right now:
- you share the actual link to your website, and people click on it and learn your domain
- while people navigate your Brain, they stay on your website, and Google likes it ;-)

Hope to read news from the Staff very soon.

How to make your WebBrain findable on the Web?
Thank you Matt: lots of options here, and the examples are good! [smile]
I checked the links on mobile too (iOS), and the Brains render better as "native", not embedded.
Each node has a unique URL, it's good to share a node on social media when you add it.
You lose some passive traffic (no SEO).
The Jerry's Brain is interesting, though the links take you away from the website.
Yet it's the best solution.
I take note of it.
Thank you!
How to make your WebBrain findable on the Web?
Hi all,
Do you have a public WebBrain?
How do you make it findable on the Web?

I see the Brain is the best solution to show the intricacies of a complex topic (Cyberbullying, Internet Addiction and others in my case).

The question is: how do people find my Brain on the Web?
Any strategy to suggest?

As far as I know there are many ways to make a web page found on the Web:
1) SEO
2) links on Social Media, guest posts, etc...

While point 2 is easy, many visitors still come to a webpage by searching on the search engines, the best solution due to the very short life of a post on social networks.

I know I can embed a Brain on a standard webpage, but this solution would increase the complexity and the job, for there would be huge job to set the Brain, then the extra job to adjust the SEO of the webpage.

Any thought about it?
I'm confused.
Online brains and SEO: what's crawled?
Hi what's crawled from the search engine when we publish a brain online?
How to change the default view of online brains?
Hi I'd like my online brains to show more levels of nodes when viewing them on a smartphone.
In the standard view only the direct children are visible, cutting some information and hindering a deep navigation: how can people navigate to a child if they don't know there's something else to read?
Is it possible? How?

New App Release: Jerry's Brain. Curated Knowledge At Its Finest.
Well done!
Another reason why I should come back to PB! :-)
But...what if we wpuld want to do the same with our brains?
Any suggestions?
