For quite a while we have been talking about adding sync capabilities to DEVONthink that allow to sync databases between multiple Macs. I am proud to announce that today we have distributed the first alpha to our team of beta testers with another (and last) alpha following early August before we start the public beta test in later August.

Today we have released the last public beta of DEVONagent 3.0 to the wild. We have added our new support assistant with one-click installs for plugins and scripts, a stand-alone menu extra similar to DEVONagent Express, and dozens of more new improvements and bug fixes. We also have updated DEVONthink and DEVONnote to version 2.1.1 with bug fixes e.g. for the Sorter. Definitely a recommended update for all of you using DEVONthink or DEVONnote!
In the recent one and a half months Jon, our new iOS developer, has worked himself through the code of DEVONthink To Go and fixed a number of nasty bugs making both the application and the sync more robust. In the coming months he will also replace the current sync code with a totally rewritten library (that e.g. will support MobileMe and Dropbox) as well as introduce new features such as file renaming, deleting, and moving on the device, better PDF support, and more.

Do you also use the Google search field in Safari just because it is there, but you know that you would have better used DEVONagent? No more. DEVONagent 3.0 public beta 3 adds a menu extra to the right-hand side of the menu bar with a Spotlight-like menu that lets you (re-)search the Web from anywhere on your Mac. Click (or press the hotkey), enter your search term, and press Return. All results appear directly in the menu and you can open them in your web browser (or DEVONagent) with another click .You will love it!
Two weeks ago we have sent beta 10 to our beta tester community. Today we have officially released the DEVONthink To Go product page with a feature list, screen shots, and a short Getting Started guide. The product page also reflects the most current development status (now: in quality assurance testing) and App Store review status as soon as we have submitted the app to Apple.
In case you are waiting for the release of DEVONthink To Go, our iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch companion to DEVONthink and DEVONnote: with Michael on board we have used the last four weeks for fixing all remaining issues making the app now as stable as we want it to be. So we have just seeded beta 10 to our closed team of beta testers with a long list of fixes and last-minute improvements. — and this is intended to be the last beta. So if all goes well we are now only running a few final tests and then push it to the App Store. We are firmly disposed to send version 1.0 to Apple earlier than later in September.
A while ago I posted an article about our forthcoming iPhone application. Since then we worked in stealth mode on finishing the app and optimizing it for iOS 4.0, the iPhone 4, and the larger user interface of the iPad (which we finally received also here in Europe where I am living). On the iPad it’s truly a ‘DEVONthink that you can touch’. Absolutely cool. See yourself: … (more)
In the last two weeks we have installed a brand new customer database server and updated all self-service forms in our support area. Everything from trial extensions to upgrade requests is connect live to the database now — no more waiting for email. (more)
Today I it was for the very first time this year warm and sunny enough for me to work on the balcony — the one balcony that gave this blog its name. People are sitting outside and are having a cup of coffee on my hometown’s market square. That’s how I should be! (more)
Quite a few of you have already contacted us and asked if we are planning an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad companion to DEVONthink. Our answer always was: ‘Stay tuned.’ Starting today it is: ‘Yes, and it’s already in beta test’. (more)
