Do you own an iPhone?

It’s not a secret that we are also developing … something … for the iPhone (and the iPod touch). We are now getting near the point that laboratory testing is no longer enough. We need feedback from real users — like yourself! So, if you are a DEVONthink Pro Office user, own an iPhone, and would like to do some beta testing for us, please email me. Seat numbers are very limited due to the ‘provisioning’ procedure that is required...

Public beta 6 released

Right in time we have released another round of public betas of DEVONthink and DEVONnote. New functions include simple PDF annotations (more to come soon!), an enhanced web interface for DEVONthink Pro Office, a rewritten Dashboard widget, a new Take Note hot key, and much, much more … Click here to read more.

We want YOU!

If you are using DEVONthink for your everyday work, be it the ‘paperless office’ , research for your studies, or as an ‘archive for everything’: WE ARE LOOKING FOR YOU! For a “Getting Started with DEVONthink” e-book that we are planning with a renowned e-book publisher our author would like to talk to a number of real-world DEVONthink users to learn more about what you are using it for and how you are using it. These chats are not printed but...

We want to stop guessing

To improve our software and web offerings we will do a survey in our next newsletter later this week. It is important for us to learn more about how you use our software, what you like about it — and what you don’t like. It won’t take up more than a few minutes of your valuable time so we would feel honored if you could help us make our applications and web site offerings better! If you are not a newsletter subscriber and...

Tuesday Tip: Safari Plug-In

DEVONthink offers a variety of methods to add your data to the inbox, from simple drag-and-drop to the Services menu and the bookmarklet. Power user and forum member ‘bartekb81’ has now even written a native Safari plug-in that inserts a Save to DEVONthink menu command into Safari’s File menu. It saves any web page you are viewing as PDF into your inbox. Installation is still a bit clumsy as you need to fix file permissions, so here is how you...

Dvorak endorses Mac and DEVONthink

Technology writer and columnist John C. Dvorak — not really known for supporting the Mac or Apple overwhelmingly — mentioned DEVONthink in his latest column “My Son Bought a Mac” in PC Magazine: […] was a smart move, since he was following the advice of pundits, technology writers, and everyone who ever gave advice about what to buy and why: “Buy solutions, not hardware.” In his case, the solution was a stunning piece of software called DEVONthink, which he needs for...

Tuesday Tip: More scripts for Evernote

Besides our own import script that allows you to transfer text files from Evernote to DEVONthink, power user Justin has written a pair of more advanced scripts for moving data between the two applications. Instead of transferring plain text Justin uses Evernote’s HTML export to get your docoument including layout out of Evernote and put it into your DEVONthink database as a web archive. For the other way round he uses a similar approach. Click here to download his cool...

Silent update for EasyFind for Mac OS X 10.4

EasyFind 4.5 as released yesterday had problems running on Mac OS X 10.4 “Tiger”. We fixed the problem by removing the new toolbar when EasyFind is started on Mac OS X 10.4. If you have this problem, please simply re-download EasyFind from our Download page and replace your copy with the silently updated one.

EasyFind and XMenu updated

Just a quick note that we have just updated our freeware apps EasyFind and XMenu. Personally I like especially XMenu’s new Snippets menu that allows me to store text snippets and URLs and quickly insert them into a new email message or any other text I am writing.
