Second, unfortunately in TheBrain 8 we were not able to offer offline capability for either iOS or Android. TheBrain's backend is vastly more powerful than any other mind mapping / visualization product. This makes it much more scalable than our competitors, but it also mean that it is a lot more work to make it available offline on other platforms. Happily, with TheBrain 9 this will be addressed.
Harlan I wanted to follow up, there are some things that just can not be held on remote services. I am working on a few projects for work where if the data gets out the company could loose Millions of Dollars which would equate to stock falling, etc ,etc ... I know that the Amazon servers are OK for most projects, but protected with only a password with no two factor authentication, and no encryption with public key is a risk that I can not take. (Especially since I also work on the Linux Security team for a Linux OS and know all the unreleased bugs that Amazon can not fix until the official version is out.
For that reason I need to keep all that data off-line.
At this point I am using NoMachine to access a Mac Desktop with Personal Brain on it through a VPN, which is OK but not intuitive as it could be on the iPad. Ana also does not let me edit on the plane which is a lot (10+ hours a week) of time wasted.
Can you please give us an idea of when Personal Brain 9 for IOS with Local Editing / creating is coming. And perhaps sync /backup to local server (desktop), so that Desktop brain can be used as well.
