DEVONthink To Go Beta 10 Seeded

In case you are waiting for the release of DEVONthink To Go, our iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch companion to DEVONthink and DEVONnote: with Michael on board we have used the last four weeks for fixing all remaining issues making the app now as stable as we want it to be. So we have just seeded beta 10 to our closed team of beta testers with a long list of fixes and last-minute improvements. — and this is intended to...

Clip to DEVONthink Available in Extension Gallery

Just a quick note that our Clip to DEVONthink Safari extension is finally also available through the Safari Extension Gallery.

Clip to DEVONthink Updated — Firefox Inclusive

We have just updated the Clip to DEVONthink Safari extension and bookmarklet to version 1.1. The new version fixes a number of bugs, e.g. adding parts of the bookmarklet code when printing a web page as well as a bug preventing log-ins to password-protected web sites. If Safari does not offer you the update, please visit the Download Extras page and download the latest version. The bookmarklet is always loaded ‘live’ and so up-to-date when you use it the next...

Thank You for Helping Us Help

In January DEVONtechnologies has joined the efforts of many independent software companies to help the victims of the earthquake that destroyed most of Haiti’s infrastructure on January 12, 2010, and made tens of thousands of people homeless. This week we have received a letter from Doctors Without Frontiers that I would like to share with you as it were the software licenses you purchased in January that enabled us to help. Thank you!

Tuesday Tip: Automate DEVONthink using Hazel

A user sent us the tip that one could also use Noodlesoft’s Hazel for this, too. Hazel is a System Preferences pane that can run a large number of filing and cleaning task automatically and in the background. It can also run Automator workflows and so it is possible to...

Clip to DEVONthink: Shortcut and Bugfix

We have updated the Clip to DEVONthink Safari extension (see here) to version 1.0.3 adding a configurable keyboard shortcut. We have fixed the bug, that the overlay was printed together with the page, too. If your copy doesn’t update automatically, you can download the new version from our Extras page.

Clip to DEVONthink Safari 5 Extension

You might be already using the Clip to DEVONthink bookmarklet for quickly adding notes or clipping interesting web pages to your DEVONthink database right from within Safari or Firefox. Now, with Safari 5, it is finally possible to write proper extensions that do no longer require the clunky ‘bookmarklet’ workaround. And so we have rewritten the bookmarklet as an extension for Safari 5 and fixed a few bugs along the lines, too. Click here to directly download the brand new, shiny...

Welcome, Michael and Rob!

Recently we had been looking for new developers to complement our team. — We have found them and both have joined our development team this week: Michael Papp from San Francisco, California, USA, and Rob Rix from London, Ontario, Canada. Michael is fully dedicated to iOS here at DEVONtechnologies and is already working on cleaning up the code of the iPhone/iPad project, that I have been working on in the recent months, fixing memory leaks and tweaking project parameters, in short: preparing...
