What Can It Do?
Knowledge and Media Management made easy, powerful and convenient. A "dump" of your notes or media doesn't do much good... but when storage is combined with threading and easy searching – that's when it can feel like a handy "annex" of your brain!
Brain Annex supports multiple accounts, and multiple users within each account - with assignable permissions.
Users can freely mix up notes or media, including complex objects supported by modular plugins; for example:
Every content item (such as a formatted text or image) can be attached to various Categories and other Tags, allowing for browsing. A powerful search function is an integral part.
For casual users, it's akin to posting on social media, or keeping albums there.
Power users can create complex web of categories, user-defined fields and many other advanced features.
Businesses and developers can greatly adapt it to their needs with easy-to-create plugins.
