Today I had the honor to give a 45-minute presentation popup: true at my former college, the Stuttgart Media University popup: true (Hochschule der Medien, HdM), on my zig-zag career path, our products from DEVONthink to DEVONsphere, and about how to build an Internet startup. It was a lot of fun being back in the hallowed halls again and meet some fantastic customers who use our apps intensively for their research and educational work.
They explain what they use our software for in their daily life, how they structured their databases, and which platform they personally prefer. Federico and John also talk about their clipping workflows and how they automate them using URL commands and Apple’s Workflow app. (more)

At The Appadamic Jai Bentley-Payne reviews DEVONthink To Go in-depth from an academic viewpoint. Jai uses the iPad professionally in his academic work, and our applications have become key elements in his workflow. In his article he asks: “Is DEVONthink To Go worth buying if you are an iOS only user?” … (more)
From time to time I post some links to articles out there that give an idea on how other people use our software. DEVONthink and DEVONagent are part of what makes them productive at their Macs, iPads, and iPhones. (more)

Our friends at MacObserver mentioned DEVONthink, EasyFind, and more again in their excellent Mac Geek Gab podcast, episode 679:
