The mind is an amazing sifter of information, and so is BrainForest

The human mind is the ultimate computer, instantly recording and prioritizing every piece of information. BrainForest works much the same way. By organizing items into a hierarchical tree, BrainForest lets you to ensure you've covered all your bases, and that you prioritize which action items are most important. You can view, sort and arrange items into any order that works for you. BrainForest is free-flowing yet organized.

The main 'tree' view displays a list of trees. Filter the list by category and sort by name or size to find just what you're looking for, or use the built-in Palm OS�?�® Find function to search your data.

Your trees can be stored in your handheld's internal memory or, if supported by your handheld device, on external storage cards.

Open a tree to view or update its contents, or create a new tree whenever an idea strikes. Simply tap the New button, and start entering information directly into the on-screen edit field.

Create branches to organize information, and add leaves for the details. Expand or collapse branches by tapping the arrow icons. Move branches and leaves by dragging them across the screen.

You can even beam trees to your friends and colleagues to share information.

You can create Standard trees or Project trees: Standard trees contain 'to do' action items, with optional checkboxes to indicate if they are complete. Project trees contain action items with completion percentages, to let you manage your projects more effectively.

You can assign start and end dates to action items, specify repeat intervals for recurring items, and view your progress using the built-in Timeline Viewer.

Each tree is stored in a BrainForest database. With BrainForest Deluxe Edition, you can open your databases on your desktop computer.

BrainForest Mobile Edition includes the BrainForest application for Palm Powered handhelds only. BrainForest Deluxe Edition includes the handheld application, plus the BrainForest desktop companion for your Windows�?�® or Mac OS computer.
