Copy Item Link

From time to time I link to interesting reviews of our applications. MacStories‘s Federico Viticci uses his iPad Pro for everything and now moved to DEVONthink To Go for his document management needs: DEVONthink To Go goes beyond Apple Notes’ simple but effective note-taking and Documents’ traditional file management features.

If you find yourself typing the same things over and over again, there is a way to give your fingers a break. Text expansion is a method of assigning abbreviations for things like often used phrases. For example, you may create an abbreviation like em1, which could fill in your email when typed. Or you may have boilerplate text for a business, like thank yous. You could use the abbreviation tfyo that could expand to “Thanks for your order!” There are some...

Especially on a smaller screen, like...
