Read Your News with DEVONthink Pro

March 31, 2009 — Eric Böhnisch-Volkmann

DEVONthink Pro not only organizes all your knowledge, it also lets you get more of it. Add RSS, RDF, or Atom feeds to your databases (e.g. by drag-and-drop of a feed: URL or by creating a new feed via Data > New > Feed) where they appear like groups with an orange RSS icon.

DEVONthink now adds new content from the Internet to the feeds every few minutes. Define the interval in DEVONthink's Preferences, RSS tab, or update the feed manually using the contextual menu. Newly arriving items are marked as 'unread', just like in any other news feed reader, and are marked 'read' as soon as you have read them.

So why use DEVONthink Pro for reading RSS feeds? DEVONthink archives all articles automatically for you together with your other correspondence. Integrate live news with your projects or let DEVONthink automatically fill your knowledge base with all new relevant articles that fit your research. In addition, you can not only subscribe to RSS feeds published by news sites or blogs but also to search results. Search engines like Google News also provide RSS links.
