DEVONthink To Go 1.5.4 fixes crashes

DEVONthink To Go on iPadToday Apple finally released DEVONthink To Go 1.5.4 to the App Store. The maintenance update fixes a few nasty crashes related to the action extension as well as crashes on iOS 5.1.1. We have also corrected a 64-bit-related issue that led to garbled text in rich text documents with accented characters.

Version 1.5 added iOS 8 support including an action extension. It also adapts to the new display sized of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.

We recommend this update to all users of DEVONthink To Go. Get it directly through the App Store app on your iOS device.

    Please. Please. PLEASE add in cloud syncing – many want it (not just myself), and the lack of it is a major issue. Yes. I know you all are working on it…but seriously, how long have yall been “working on it”?!?
    DevonThink is, quite simply, an amazing program without equal…as long as you are PHYSICALLY AT that computer. This is where a cloud option would make it unbeatable. It is depressing that free and/or freemium applications have this feature, in spades.

  2. Any word on when 2.0 is going to come out? You all have been promising it for over a year? Dropbox syncing? iCloud syncing?

    @ Brian Renshaw: We have not “been promising it for over a year”. We just said that we’re working on it, with no promised release date. But what I do promise is that we’ll let you know via this blog as soon as there’s something to share.

    Wow, has anyone at DevonTechnologies looked at their app rating for the iOS app recently?

    It seems that there has been talk about a new version of DevonThink ToGo for quite some time. Maybe no promised release date, but I mean come on. It seems you guys need some more resources to get this completed. In the mean time, it’s embarrassing and frustrating to see how much of an anachronism your iOS app has become.

    I have a decent amount of data in DevonThink Pro Office that I would like to access on my iOS devices. But non-cloud synching is a non-starter for me. Unfortunately, it’s become time for me to start researching completely new platforms. It’s plainly obvious from eboehnisch’s post that there is no plan, no timeline, and no future for this platform.

    And that’s sad, because I really like the OS X app.

    I too am a frustrated user waiting for the iOS version of DevonThinkPro. I use DevonThink Pro on the Mac nearly every day to store and categorise information but I continue to be disappointed at the lack of access to this information on my iOS devices. I’ve not bothered to buy the iOS version because I can’t see the point if it doesn’t have effective searching (see review comments) and iCloud / Dropbox support. In addition the reviews have been bad across a number of international iTunes stores.

    So, the promises have been made now for too long. The tone of eboehnisch’s response above is defensive and unreasonable. I bought DTPro back in 2012 and my memory is that version 2.0 promises with iCloud support were being made back then. Every couple of months I check the Apple Store to see if something’s happened but to no avail.

    There needs to be some energy on this project. Can I suggest:

    • regular blog posts to communicate progress to the many who have invested their data in the DevonThink solution.

    • a beta release program for early adopters.

    I hope you take this post in the spirit that it’s intended – as a nudge to make this a critical priority for the good of all involved. The delay is hurting DevonThink. I have $19 AUD ready to spend when it comes. 🙂

    Boy am I glad I looked at these posts prior to spending hard earned cash on the mac version of office pro. Thought I had finally found the perfect knowledge based app. But no BASIC cloud syncing? And then the response “We have not “been promising it for over a year”. We just said that we’re working on it, with no promised release date”. No customer-oriented company would have left a response like that. Thanks commenters for saving me from wasting a pile of cash.
