DEVONagent Express and PhotoStickies passed the review

Finally, three weeks after we have posted version 3.0.3 of DEVONagent Express to Apple for review the new release is finally available in the Mac App Store. You can download it through the App Store app (which sounds a bit like a hiccup, BTW).  And PhotoStickies has made it, too. That means that our first freeware application for the Mac ever released now also made the jump. Click here to get it.

Tuesday tip: Empty DEVONthink’s trash automagically

Using Keyboard Maestro you can automate emptying DEVONthink’s trash including dismissing the confirmation dialog. For this create a new Keyboard Maestro macro with the following steps: 1. Type Shift-Command-Delete. 2. Pause for 0.25 seconds. 3. Press the OK button. 4. Execute some AppleScript code to empty the Finder’s trash. 5. Post a Growl notification. If you like the idea of automating things, you should have a look at Keyboard Maestro.

It’s a dangerous life in Brown County, Indiana

As some of you may know Bill DeVille, our support hero, lives in a log cabin near Nashville, Indiana, USA. And while you might think that’s a peaceful place, it is not always. Here’s what Bill copied from the Sheriff’s log this morning: July 13, 9:06 a.m.: Caller on Greenbriar Lane reports she heard gunshots then people walking, now sounds like construction of some type, but she is afraid to leave residence to check. 9:29 a.m. Caller advising disregard officer....

A little brother!

If you don’t need the full power of DEVONagent Pro or even just DEVONagent Express we have good news for you: We have submitted DEVONagent Lite to the Mac App Store today. It’s small, it’s convenient, and it’s free! Note: DEVONagent Lite is not yet available in the Mac App Store. It first has to pass Apple’s review, of course.

DEVONagent grows ups

After seven months of public beta testing we have released DEVONagent 3.0 today. And because it’s the best (re)search assistant we’ve ever made we now call it DEVONagent Pro 🙂 We made it compatible to OS X 10.7 Lion, of course, support 64 bit mode, and have updated or rewritten all plugins. If you’re a JSTOR fan, SEC website user, or lawyer researching on LexisNexis: DEVONagent Pro supports them all now, too. Important note: DEVONagent Pro 3.0 is a paid upgrade. So if you own...

We sync this is truly exciting! (spoken with German accent)

For quite a while we have been talking about adding sync capabilities to DEVONthink that allow to sync databases between multiple Macs. I am proud to announce that today we have distributed the first alpha to our team of beta testers with another (and last) alpha following early August before we start the public beta test in later August. The sync technology allow you to synchronize all your databases directly between Macs on the local network as well as over-the-air...

Tuesday tip: Use reminders

Very often documents are connected to actions, e.g. “contact these guys”, “pay this bill”, or “discuss this with the team”. You can create a 43 folder setup in DEVONthink (see the “Getting Things Done” concept) to remind yourself of them or manually add tasks to your preferred calendar or task manager, e.g. iCal, OmniFocus, or Things. But why manually? DEVONthink Pro (Office) comes with scripts for iCal and all major task managers that add references to your task list or...
