DEVONthink To Go 2.5.1 enhances security and reliability

DEVONthink To Go 2.5 Security Settings

For the DEVONthink To Go 2.5.1 maintenance release we’ve thrown enhancements to the clipping workflow and to its new app security into the package. Clip to DEVONthink adds text retrieved for web pages to the comments of bookmarks and recognizes URLs provided as simple text. The security lock screen now covers also full-screen videos and popovers. That being not enough, no maintenance release comes without reliability and performance improvements. The update makes synchronizing via sync stores more reliable and checks...

Spring updates: From DEVONsphere Express to XMenu

XMenu 1.9.9

Right in time for spring here in the US and in Europe we’ve done some traditional spring cleaning and prepared a few updates for you: DEVONsphere Express 1.9.1 brings performance-related improvements and works better with the AFPS filesystem. It now also searches text in PDF annotations and forms, handles ePub books better, and improves finding related websites. Auto-completing search terms makes typing queries more comfortable. CalcService 3.5 supports also numbers with separators, e.g., copied from an invoice or account statement. WordService 2.8.2...

Welcome SSL/TLS and Good-Bye Facebook

Data protection icon

We know that you like to keep your private data private. And our software and processes are designed to keep it that way. Here’s what we’ve done recently to protect your privacy and security as well as our own integrity in these matters: Our website and all of its subdomains use SSL/TLS encryption now. You’ll notice that they use https: instead of http: and all common browsers show a padlock icon or similar in the address bar when you visit them. If they...

DEVONthink to adopt Blockchain technology

Use Blockchain

The most-discussed new technology in the last few years is clearly the Blockchain. While it’s best known as the basis for Bitcoin it’s main advantage is its highly decentralized approach to data storage. Data is added in encrypted form to a robust chain of byte blocks that make tempering with it impossible. Reliable versioning comes with the approach as a free extra, and as all data is not only stored locally but also on an uncountable number of other computers...

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...

DEVONthink To Go 2.4.4 fixes a few minor issues

DEVONthink To Go editing anotations

While we’re preparing our next feature release for DEVONthink To Go, a maintainance update to version 2.4.4 has just passed Apple’s review. It enables editing existing PDF annotations without switching to edit mode and fixes issues related to rotating the device, swiping databases, the grid view, and the PDF annotation toolbar. We recommend this free update to all users. Update your copy through the App Store app or receive the update automatically, depending on your App Store settings.

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....

DEVONagent 3.10 searches Google Scholar for law, adds Bangs

Finding references and court opinions takes up a good part of an attorney’s or law student’s workday. Therefore DEVONagent Pro is the ideal tool for them. It helps them with in-depth research in online databases and keeps them updated when new information turns up. DEVONagent 3.10 adds Google Scholar to the already existing support for Lexis, FindLaw, and EUR-Lex for finding case law and opinions. For quick queries, DEVONagent Pro now supports DuckDuckgo Bangs in the internal browser. These keywords, beginning with an...

Using DEVONthink and Things

DEVONthink Reminders Script

DEVONthink and DEVONthink To Go can be comfortably used with OmniFocus by using item links. Many other applications support URLs, too, and can so link back to documents stored in DEVONthink. For example Things from Cultured Code which works with DEVONthink very similar to OmniFocus: Create a new task using the Reminders script DEVONthink Pro and Pro Office come with a script that creates a task from a selected item in your database. Navigate to the item in DEVONthink Pro (Office) Choose Scripts...
