For DEVONthink 3 we have revisited every aspect of the app, from the user interface as a whole to the many details that make it a strong companion for every information worker.
We have redesigned the user interface and added dark mode support, extended DEVONthink’s already powerful search language, and added a new menu extra for capturing notes and more from anywhere on your Mac.
Other pro-grade features include custom metadata, imprinting for images and PDF, a better OCR engine, and a completely rewritten web interface. New automation options like smart rules and flexible reminders let even non-programmers easily delegate repeating tasks to DEVONthink.
DEVONthink keeps all your documents in easy-to-backup databases and presents them to you in a variety of ways. Many documents can be viewed and edited without opening them in another application. Read web pages as if they were local documents.
DEVONthink Pro scans paper documents and makes them searchable, imports email, and even downloads complete web sites.
Don’t fight the information flood alone. Let DEVONthink for Mac categorize documents based on how you filed similar documents before. Add smart rules to file documents, rename them, or process them in other ways automatically.
Later retrieve the data you need using DEVONthink’s fast and flexible search. Find similar documents with keywords extracted from the document and the unique See Also function, or filter your database by dates, marks, tags, or geolocation.
Smart groups present related data based on saved searches, and reminders make sure you’ll not forget to work on your evil genius master plan. Add interesting materials to the reading list.
Collect, analyze, summarize, write: View all your data in one place, use tags to quickly organize documents, and write in editors optimized for plain text, rich text, and Markdown. Smart templates are a great starting point for new documents.
Insert manual or automatic cross-references, add annotations to any documents, and enrich your data with custom metadata. Imprint PDFs and images with customizable stamps and add Bates Numbers to them. Two full screen modes help you stay focused.
Store your documents in self-contained databases or just add references to external files. Encrypt databases for maximum privacy. Clip data from other apps with a keystroke or write notes and add them to the inbox to file them later. With its many extensions DEVONthink easily integrates into your workflow.
Add links to your documents to all apps that take web addresses, e.g. OmniFocus or Apple Mail, or export your documents in their original file formats. Give your co-workers access with the built-in web interface (Server edition only). DEVONthink never holds your data hostage.
Use your databases on all your Macs, iPads, and iPhones by synchronizing them between your devices. You decide what data is synced, when, and where. Strong encryption makes sure that your data belongs to you, not to your service provider or us.
Have your important documents with you all the time with DEVONthink To Go. Designed as a standalone app it allows you to not only view but also work with your data while you’re away from your Mac. Organize your documents, add notes, annotate PDFs, or clip data from the web. Use the fast search and predefined smart groups to quickly find what you need.
DEVONthink grows with your needs. Add web feeds to your database to automatically import new articles, or download and archive complete web sites. The concordance with its word cloud gives you a real-time analysis of your data.
Flexible smart rules and reminders let you automate recurring tasks without being a programmer. Integrate DEVONthink with other software using AppleScript and script-driven smart templates. The possibilities are endless.
The longer I use this tool, the more elegant my workflow becomes.
