Pros: Thebrain enables me to think the way my brain does. Instead of a hierarchical data map, it allows to quickly and easily create associations, so one node will appear in my client's tasks, the person who is doing the task, in Focus cluster for the week, and so on. I found it fantastic as a task management tool by assigning TODO task type to anything that I want on my list, Follow up for things I delegated, and so on. It even has the ability to set reminders, color-code tasks so urgent matters jump out at me, and "Wander" around the brain, sort of scanning for anything interesting.

Cons: The Android app does not work at all since Android 9 came out. No support there. Does not have an API, so I can't integrate with any other workflow using Zapier. The software is unbelievable as a beta, but I am now looking for alternatives.
