June 20, 2022 — Eric Böhnisch-Volkmann

Coeur d’Alene, Idaho — It’s SummerFest time again. DEVONtechnologies and fourteen other developers of real Mac software get together for their traditional summer celebration of hand-crafted software for writers, designers, and thinkers. All products are made by small, independent software manufacturers and designed to work together. During SummerFest they sell for great prices.

Customers get any of the participating products with the exclusive discount directly in the respective company’s online shop by using the common coupon code SUMMERFEST2022. The Ukrainian developer UJ.Labs gives their app Unclutter away for free in exchange for a donation going to volunteers personally known to the developer and official charitable foundations supporting people suffering from the war in Ukraine. More information about this year’s SummerFest is available on

SummerFest is not a bundle of unrelated products, but a cooperation of independent software developers dedicated to creating useful, solid software for writing, creating, and researching on the Mac. Each product is the work of a small team or individual Mac developer knowing the workflows and challenges of their customers. They all bring devoted craftsmanship to a field too often dominated by corporate blandness.

I strongly believe that indie software on the Mac is what makes them so much more useful for daily work. And when applications tightly work together, this power multiplies. The recent integration between DEVONthink and Trickster is but one such example of a fruitful collaboration.

Jacob Gorban, Apparent Software

Software has become a central, ubiquitous element of our lives. And with this came a concentration on fewer and larger software companies. But, you don’t solve non-standard problems or do fine-tuned research with commodity tools. SummerFest is all about independent software makers that understand what their customers’ challenges are.

Eric Böhnisch-Volkmann, DEVONtechnologies

All participating companies offer discounts on their SummerFest products. SummerFest also supports UJ.Lab’s donation campaign helping volunteers in Ukraine. For DEVONthink and DEVONagent Pro the 25% discount can also be used for purchasing upgrades but cannot be combined with other others like, e.g., the student & educators discount. SummerFest 2022 officially starts on June 23rd and ends on July 12th, 2022. Participating companies may choose to keep their offer open longer.
