Last night our latest maintenance update for DEVONthink To Go has passed Apple's review. Version 2.6.2 allows settings flags and labels using URL commands, removes path extensions from the name of files imported from, e.g., the Files app, and warns before adding a database with pending items to a new sync location. In addition the update fixes bugs and improves the overall stability and reliability. (more)
Sychronization via iCloud was the no. 1 feature request on our list. And here we go: DEVONthink 2.10 and DEVONthink To Go 2.6 let you keep your databases in sync via iCloud and without entering anything except for the optional encryption password. No messing around with sync store names, server addresses, or login credentials. Add the iCloud sync location, check off the databases you want to sync, done. It can't be any easier. (more)
For the DEVONthink To Go 2.5.1 maintenance release we've thrown enhancements to the clipping workflow and to its new app security into the package. Clip to DEVONthink adds text retrieved for web pages to the comments of bookmarks and recognizes URLs provided as simple text. The security lock screen now covers also full-screen videos and popovers. (more)
We know that you care about your privacy. But we also know that from time to time you hand your iPhone or iPad to friends or colleagues. Which means that they could, in an unattented moment, open DEVONthink To Go and have a look at your databases. With its new app-wide passcode version 2.5 makes sure that they can't. (more)
Names. Names should allow us to quickly identify something at a glance.
Tiger. Yeah, I know what that is.
2012 Taxes. Got it.
4d0f1bfec91ff2472.doc… wait, what?!? To make things easier we can create a more specific name, like
BankOne VISA - January 2018 Statement - PAID - 2018-01-15.pdf This is certainly more clear but such long filenames may not fully display in all applications or on smaller form factor devices. And word-wrapping can sometimes add to the confusion. (more)
While we're preparing our next feature release for DEVONthink To Go, a maintainance update to version 2.4.4 has just passed Apple's review. It enables editing existing PDF annotations without switching to edit mode and fixes issues related to rotating the device, swiping databases, the grid view, and the PDF annotation toolbar. (more)
Due to a server update our decluttering service no longer worked since last Thursday. The service is used by our Clip to DEVONthink extension on Mac and iOS for capturing articles from web pages without ads and other chrome. The issue is fixed and clipping web pages should work again now. We apologize for the inconveniences.
WebDAV is a standard protocol for connecting to file services over the internet. You can mount WebDAV servers in the Finder just like a remote hard drive, upload and download files, or move things around. It's a solid standard and DEVONthink can use it for managing its sync stores, folders containing all the files needed for synchronizing one or more databases between multiple devices. (more)
We've just released an update for DEVONthink To Go to version 2.4.3. This time it's all about synchronization. So we added the ability to synchronize when you switch to another app. This makes sure that the changes you've made are uploaded to your sync store. If you lock the device, iOS immediately removes access to all encrypted data on disk to protect it. In this case DEVONthink To Go stops the synchronization quietly and retries when you come back to it later. (more)
Part of setting up a DEVONthink sync to Dropbox is making sure you don't re-download the sync data unnecessarily. If you don't exclude the DEVONthink Packet Sync folder in the Dropbox application on your Mac, it will download what our sync has just uploaded. This wastes bandwidth and space on your machine. It may also spam your machine with messages about files being changed. (more)
