DEVONthink To Go 2.5 adds security features

DEVONthink To Go 2.5 Security Settings

We know that you care about your privacy. But we also know that from time to time you hand your iPhone or iPad to friends or colleagues. Which means that they could, in an unattented moment, open DEVONthink To Go and have a look at your databases. With its new app-wide passcode version 2.5 makes sure that they can’t. Optionally use Face ID or Touch ID instead of typing your passcode over and over. You can also set how long...

Tuesday Tip: Shorten long filenames

Names. Names should allow us to quickly identify something at a glance. “Tiger”. Yeah, I know what that is. “2012 Taxes”. Got it. “4d0f1bfec91ff2472.doc”… wait, what?!? To make things easier we can create a more specific name, like “BankOne VISA – January 2018 Statement – PAID – 2018-01-15.pdf” This is certainly more clear but such long filenames may not fully display in all applications or on smaller form factor devices. And word-wrapping can sometimes add to the confusion. Here is an...

Tuesday Tip: Find a file service or make OneDrive work with sync

Our synchronization technology for DEVONthink and DEVONthink To Go supports direct connections via the local network, Dropbox, and WebDAV. WebDAV is a standard protocol for connecting to file services over the internet. You can mount WebDAV servers in the Finder just like a remote hard drive, upload and download files, or move things around. It’s a solid standard and DEVONthink can use it for managing its sync stores, folders containing all the files needed for synchronizing one or more databases between...

Decluttering service working again

Clip to DEVONthink clutter-free

Due to a server update our decluttering service no longer worked since last Thursday. The service is used by our Clip to DEVONthink extension on Mac and iOS for capturing articles from web pages without ads and other chrome. The issue is fixed and clipping web pages should work again now. We apologize for the inconveniences.

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....

Tuesday Tip: Keep Dropbox from downloading sync data

Part of setting up a DEVONthink sync to Dropbox is making sure you don’t re-download the sync data unnecessarily. If you don’t exclude the DEVONthink Packet Sync folder in the Dropbox application on your Mac, it will download what our sync has just uploaded. This wastes bandwidth and space on your machine. It may also spam your machine with messages about files being changed. The latest version of the Dropbox application has changed the location of this option. It is now...

Thursday Tip: Switching Dropbox accounts for synchronization

You can only use one Dropbox account in DEVONthink or DEVONthink To Go. This means you need to pick an account to use for syncing. But perhaps you started with one account and have now decided to use another one. Or maybe you want to share sync data with someone else, using a common Dropbox account. And every single time you try and set up a sync location, DEVONthink just won’t forget the first account you used! Here’s how to...

DEVONthink To Go (DTTG) has really solved this problem for me and it’s one of my most used apps on my iOS devices.
