With PersonalBrain 4.5's optimized performance and highly scalable database, users can create an unlimited number of Thoughts in their Brains

TheBrain Technologies, the leading provider of dynamic mind mapping software, announced its newest release, PersonalBrain 4.5, a complimentary upgrade for all PersonalBrain 4.0 users loaded with new features and a powerful new backend for its rapidly growing cross platform user base.

PersonalBrain helps people make sense of the wide range of information they need to organize and assimilate on a daily basis. The software is so flexible and fluid that users can link any file or concept to anything else, creating an expansive and personalized network of information that visualizes key relationships and connections from the user's perspective. This intelligent view provides business users, scholars and hobbyists alike with a powerful context for research, analysis and decision making. With PersonalBrain users can activate any Thought in their Brain instantly, discover related information, remember ideas or tasks, and enhance their overall understanding of their digital world and information.

"With PersonalBrain 4.5's optimized performance and highly scalable database, users can create an unlimited number of Thoughts in their Brains," said Harlan Hugh, Chief Technology Officer of TheBrain. "PersonalBrain 4.5 gives users the power to create their own knowledgebase that encapsulates literally everything. After using the software, standard folders and search lists feel barren and meaningless. Your digital Brain increases your personal productivity while providing meta-awareness and higher level of consciousness on otherwise invisible information relationships and concepts."

PersonalBrain 4.5 helps people mind map their Thoughts, ideas and information with new visualization, searching and editing features. New features include:

  • Increased Performance - PersonalBrain's dynamic user interface enables one to visually navigate related information. All operations are now faster, from loading to creating information and navigation is up to 30 times faster. This increased speed opens up the ability to easily create Brains with hundreds of thousands of Thoughts.
  • Advanced Search and Indexing - PersonalBrain features a powerful search that lets users shift focus to anything that comes to mind in seconds. Live search results appear as users type, prioritized based on usage data. Version 4.5 intelligently interprets requests so the initials of a person can be used instead of their full name for example.
  • Superior Distant Thought View - PersonalBrain's exclusive display engine makes it a powerful visualization tool for concept and mind mapping. The engine continues to evolve in version 4.5 with an optimized view of second generation Thoughts for easier reading and an even more intuitive visual browser.
  • Merging Brains and Copying Thoughts - Users can now easily merge the contents of one Brain into another and use sophisticated copying functions to leverage a set of Thoughts and relationships in different contexts.
  • Excel and Word Relationship Import - Information structures from Word, Excel and other applications can now be imported into PersonalBrain. Outlines constructed outside of PersonalBrain are easy to import and are automatically visualized. The imported structures can be left as is or leveraged with the sophisticated tools available in PersonalBrain. Conversely, information can also be exported back out of PersonalBrain just as easily.
  • Complete Undo and Redo Editing - PersonalBrain's intuitive drag and relate technology lets users create and link numerous ideas and Thoughts in seconds. Now with complete undo and redo capabilities, users can make connections even faster. If a change is made and then reconsidered the multiple level undo buffer makes going back a one step process.
