As is known to all, using a mind mapping software can intuitively and clearly express the thoughts we normally think, remember or learn in our brains, and present them in the form of charts. This is very helpful for our daily work, study and life – integrates the scattered resources, exercises the ability of thinking and mental power, and inspires our inspiration and creativity.

TheBrain (formerly called PersonalBrain, written in Java) is an extraordinary, dynamic mind mapping software. The traditional mind mapping tools such as XMind, FreeMind, MindManager use planar and linear means of expression (i.e.: all the topics, projects, accessories as well as their relationships can only be displayed within a single plane, and only allows to radiate to all around from the center idea, so as to form a tree structure, where each node has only one parent node).

TheBrain comes with many characteristics that you can not see in any other mind mapping software. For example: unique “dynamic + meshy + three-dimensional” thinking structure that makes mind correlation easier and clearer; unlimited and jumping thinking nodes that make it easier and more efficient to build a huge digital brain map; cloud service for synchronizing or sharing your complete ideas; support of collaborative operation that makes it possible to build mind libraries together.

In terms of usability and availability, TheBrain provides modern UI design, and gets rid of many unnecessary processes while being closer to the user habits, which make it quicker and more convenient for users to create a mind map or find relevant mappings.

TheBrain has been widely applied to learning, writing, communication, presentation, management, meeting, demand research and analysis, and so on areas. However, some people may have to spend some more time before getting used to it. Frankly speaking, some users finally tasted its magic power after using it for nearly 10 years. Anyway, once your awareness has risen to this height, it is likely to be hard to extricate yourself from this tool, and perhaps you will even dream of it in the evening.
