The Apple Press on DEVONthink and the ScanSnap

On The Apple Press Philipp Eierund just published a very nice piece about The Mobile Mac Office, actually reviewing the combo of DEVONthink Pro Office and the ScanSnap S1300. He writes:

In conclusion, the results of the quick and reliable ScanSnap S1300 in combination with the feature-laden DEVONthink Professional Office are hard to beat. Once set up and configured to your liking it is possible and — perhaps even more importantly — fun to maintain a paperless office with minimal effort. […] So, do yourself a favor and get rid of the paper!

Thank you, Philipp! Click here to read the full article.

    Using a ScanSnap 1500 and DevonTHINK Office Pro 2.0 for 1 year now, and it is great! Highly recommended! I archive bank statements, invoices and legal docs. All other paper is scanned and throwed away. Reduces office archive to one folder a month.

    The review includes the very important criticism. I really hope you guys pay attention. This is definitely not a feature, it’s a horribly frustrating example of a bad design decision in an otherwise very useful product:

    “Another gripe with DEVONthink is the fact that there’s no easy way to change a document’s creation date once it has been imported into the database. This is a glaring shortcoming for anyone who needs to organize files by date and doesn’t always create PDF’s on the day the documents were issued or received. Only when you scan documents directly into DEVONthink do you get a chance to enter a custom date. Mr. Böhnisch-Volkmann states that this “omission” is actually a “feature” since some government agencies may not allow date-changes for paperless workflows.”

  3. I have reacted to this article by ordering a ScanSnap S1300.
    And I do hope that an upcoming DevonThink application for the iPad will sync through MobileMe [possibly iDisk as does OmniFocus].

    @Per: It will, but not in 1.0. The first version will sync directly for higher performance.
