WinterFest assembles many of the best-of-breed tools for writing and research for the Mac.

Each of them is the work of a small design team or a passionate designer, bringing devoted craftsmanship to a field too often dominated by corporate blandness.
The Together page shows real-life examples how these tools work together hand in hand to enable their users create something new without struggling with software that throws stones into their way.
"Our customers love to create something new. They collect, organize, write. With DEVONthink Pro Office, DEVONagent Pro, and the other apps in this WinterFest they can do this without the computer getting in the way of their creativity." — Eric Böhnisch-Volkmann, President of DEVONtechnologies.
"What a great list to be part of. I love Scapple as a simple as possible thinking space. I wrote my first app integration for TextExpander on iOS years ago. Tinderbox is an original that I look to for new ideas in my own software." — TaskPaper inventor Jesse Grosjean.
"You don’t discover inspired design in focus groups. Artisanal software is filled with ideas, ambition, and a passion to make things right. Using all these tools together lets our team build better software while engaging the rest of the research community." — Mark Bernstein, developer of Tinderbox.
