The State of iCloud

The upcoming macOS Catalina as well as iOS 13 were about to bring many changes to how the directories on the hard drive are structured as well as to how iCloud is integrated into the file system.

DEVONthink 3.0 is Officially Here

End of April we released the first public beta of DEVONthink 3. Since then we published seven betas and received a lot of exciting feedback (as well as many less exciting bug reports). We used the time to iron out many of the unevennesses that accompany every major product upgrade and to fix the issues that you and we encountered. Today we finally released DEVONthink 3.0 officially. (more)

DEVONthink To Go 2.7.2

In the last few months we focused on getting DEVONthink 3 ready for prime-time and so it had become a bit quiet around DEVONthink To Go. Today, version 2.7.2 has passed Apple's review.

Our maintenance release brings the sync mechanism on par with DEVONthink 3, makes its handling of indexed items consistent to the Mac, and brings back the sync status sheet. Change the stacking order of PDF annotations and, finally, view highlight annotations added with DEVONthink on the Mac. If you're a Bookends user you can now link to items stored in your favorite references manager using the Bookends URL scheme. (more)

Catalina and Our Applications

macOS Catalina is going into a new round of public beta testing and is expected to arrive for everyone this autumn. It brings changes to iTunes, Find My Friends, and Reminders, but also a lot of modifications to the underpinnings.

Use Favorites in the Sorter

A great tip from our community user TomSLN:

Groups in databases can be flagged as favorites. Once flagged, the list of favorites appears at the top of the Sorter's navigate list. This is an easy way to drag files into the Sorter and onto the desired group without having to navigate to the group in the database tree. (more)

Dropbox to DEVONthink To Go

Sometimes you might want to add data from Dropbox into your DEVONthink databases. With DEVONthink on a Mac this is as simple as dragging and dropping. On iOS, however, Dropbox's mobile application doesn't allow for this kind of interaction. So is there an option for easily adding Dropbox data to DEVONthink To Go? (more)
