Website Relaunched

We admit it. Our website started to look a bit dated. We launched it in a time where "responsive web design" meant something like automatically switching languages. Now it's 2019, we use the web mostly from smartphones, and we're used to a completely different design language. (more)

DEVONthink to Adopt Blockchain Technology

The most-discussed new technology in the last few years is clearly the Blockchain. While it's best known as the basis for Bitcoin it's main advantage is its highly decentralized approach to data storage.

We have been hard at work these past few years. Not only on DEVONthink To Go 2 and our new sync technology but also a new generation of our AI engine. Meet Awareness.

Before our applications used only the documents, their metadata, and information derived from the way you filed them. Awareness goes much further.

Download DEVONthink To Go Manual as PDF or E-Book

All our products come with a build-in documentation. It's written in XML and compiled to HTML, PDF, and two ebook formats with a variety of tools. For DEVONthink To Go 2 we use the same workflow, just with another set of stylesheets that adopt the iOS look and make it work better in our own viewer. (more)

In the meantime we're polishing DEVONthink To Go 2.0's user interface in preparation for the App Store submission. (more)
