Release notes

We release new versions of our applications on a regular basis. Every release comes with bug fixes and detail enhancements as well as very often also new features. Read here what has changed in the most recent version.

DEVONthink To Go 2.3

This update is dedicated to iOS 11 and its enhancements but also features improvements on earlier versions of iOS. It adds drag-and-drop inside DEVONthink To Go as well as to and from other apps. You can use your database through the new Files app and create notes or search for documents with Siri. A new Favorites smart group lists groups marked inside DEVONthink To Go as favorites as well as the favorites from Files. Finally, version 2.3 allows to verify and clean sync locations and mark items as read or unread with a new swipe action. The update improves the overall performance, too, and fixes a number of bugs and glitches.
