DEVONthink To Go 2.1.3 uses new declutterer and brings automation

Workflow for DEVONthink To Go

DEVONthink To Go 2.1.3, which passed Apple’s review today and became available on the App Store, follows its Mac counterpart and now also uses our own decluttering service when clipping web pages and articles. This way we’ve made it independent of third-party services and ready for future improvements. In addition, the new version brings two new settings that let you fine-tune how you would like to have your PDFs served. Version 2.1.3 also lists email attachments separately and lets you share them. We’ve updated...

The next generation of our AI is here

We have been hard at work these past few years. Not only on DEVONthink To Go 2 and our new sync technology but also a new generation of our AI engine. Meet Awareness. Before our applications used only the documents, their metadata, and information derived from the way you filed them. Awareness goes much further. It tracks which applications you are using, what actions you perform, and where. Then it creates groups and files items as you work and when you return to, e.g., DEVONthink you’ll find...

DEVONthink 2.9.11: New declutter web service and more

Clip to DEVONthink with "Use clutter-free layout" option

Two weeks ago Instapaper silently made their public API available only to logged-in users. If you are one of the DEVONthink users whose workflow relied on Instapaper here’s the fix release for you. DEVONthink 2.9.11 now uses our own Markdownifier web service for decluttering clipped web pages and articles and so removes the dependency on a third-party service. That not being enough, version 2.9.11 improves sharing notes from Apple Notes to DEVONthink and makes notes imported from Evernote independent from their mothership. It’s never been easier to...

DEVONthink To Go 2.1.1 with important bug fix

DEVONthink To Go 2.1 error message

DEVONthink To Go 2.1.1 just passed Apple’s review with important bug fixes. — For the new document provider extension feature to work, DEVONthink To Go 2.1 had to move the the database files to a new location shared between application and its extensions. On some devices this failed and resulted in an error message and an apparently empty database. Version 2.1.1 fixes this issue and makes the database accessible again. We apologize for the inconveniences. In addition, DEVONthink 2.1.1 blocks the user interface less...
