DEVONthink To Go reviewed

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. On the surface, it’s an advanced file manager that can be used to move notes and files around, but I see it more as a powerful research tool for documents...

Tuesday Tip: Use text expansion

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...

Tuesday Tool Tip: Free your menubar with Bartender 2

While we rely on our big powerhouse applications like DEVONthink, there are many smaller utilities we use for specialized purposes.

However, this has lead to our menubars becoming increasingly crowded. And not only these utilities are shown here, but the menubar also has to accommodate the menus of the current application. Especially on a smaller screen, like...

Archive from Pocket and Feedbin to DEVONthink

Pocket app icon

Forum user gnbio has created a cool workflow for archiving Pocket and Feedbin articles in DEVONthink Pro and DEVONthink To Go: I had been looking for a way to accurately convert articles read in Pocket & Feedbin/RSS to PDF and archive for future reference. This has been particularly useful for how-to articles, longform content and legal knowhow (for my day job). The beauty of this automated method is that I have an instantly searchable archive of content available on iOS and macOS...
