DEVONthink To Go 2.5 Security Settings

DEVONthink To Go 2.4.4 fixes a few minor issues

DEVONthink To Go editing anotations

While we’re preparing our next feature release for DEVONthink To Go, a maintainance update to version 2.4.4 has just passed Apple’s review.

DEVONthink To Go 2.4.3 improves sync reliability and more

DEVONthink To Go Sync Automatically Setting

We’ve just released an update for DEVONthink To Go to version 2.4.3. This time it’s all about synchronization. So we added the ability to synchronize when you switch to another app. This makes sure that the changes you’ve made are uploaded to your sync store. If you lock the device, iOS immediately removes access to all encrypted data on disk to protect it. In this case DEVONthink To Go stops the synchronization quietly and retries when you come back to it later....
