I know an iOS version of the desktop client has been proposed in UserVoice and might be in the works :-) Will this presage native versions of the client for each OS and not use Java for the UI. This will translate to a better user experience in terms of memory usage and fluidity of the animations. Java has its virtues but I can imagine how good a native UI will look!

Well, iOS does not support Java (no Java apps), so you don't have to worry about that.  (Look up Java iOS on Wikipedia.)   I'd guess that with the web version of Brain, there isn't a need for a specific iOS version.  Just a guess on my part.

I'm a Mac/Win/iOS programmer and I know Java amongst other frameworks are not supported in the locked-down iOS! I wanted to elicit a response from a developer of the client if a native, non-Web version is in the planning given the popularity of the iOS platforms. I prefer native versions of the the desktop and iOS client. I've been an on/off user and now avid user since version 1.0 but I always hoped they migrate away from the quirky Java UI (Swing, SWT, etc.) and move to a more native look-and-feel (Cocoa, XAML etc.) with the configuration/editor UI!

Wasn't TheBrain a native Windows application at first? If I'm not mistaken, the developers switched to Java after version 3.0 so they could create a more universal application. I think Java is at the heart of their WebBrain experience as well, so I suspect they will be sticking with Java, at least for the time being, but would be interested in hearing from them on this as well.

TheBrain has evolved quite a bit over the years.  Yes, we were originally PC only on a C++ platform.  Since then, we have expanded to Java and now HTML 5, with bigger and better plans for future versions.  We're also continuing to focus on Mac development with plans for further iPad and iPhone capabilities.  In our most recent release, we also added new, Mac friendly keyboard shortcuts. Stay tuned for more iOS updates in future releases.

Thank you,
Matt
