Get organized, effortlessly

DEVONthink keeps your valuable data organized and presents it in the way you want.

DEVONthink keeps all your information in one easy-to-backup database, and presents it to you in a variety of ways optimized to your work style. Multiple views help you quickly navigate your data.

Many documents can be viewed and edited inline, without resorting to Quick Look or opening another app. Read webpages as if they were local documents.


Be more productive

Don't fight the information flood by yourself. DEVONthink is smart and actively assists you with its built-in artificial intelligence.

Let DEVONthink automatically file new documents for you based on how you filed similar documents. Later, the advanced search function retrieves the documents that you need for your task, while smart groups present related data together. Quickly find similar documents using keywords extracted from the document and the unique "See also" function.


Create something new

It’s not about data, it’s about creating something meaningful from it. DEVONthink is your information power tool.

Collect, analyze, summarize, write: With DEVONthink you have all you need in one app that actively supports your workflow. View all your data in one place, use our innovative approach to tags to quickly organize documents, and write in the enhanced rich text editor. Use manual or automatic Wiki-style links to effortlessly cross-reference your work.

DEVONthink's two full screen modes help you stay focused, while smart templates are a great starting point for new documents.


Your data, no boundaries

Wherever your data comes from and whatever you want to do with it, DEVONthink provides you with the best tools and as much metadata as possible.

Store your documents in the self-contained database or simply reference them by using the index feature. Clip data from other apps with just a keystroke, adding it to the GTD®-like inbox for later filing, or take notes with the Take Note panel or the Dashboard widget. Browser extensions, the Services menu, and the Sorter panel integrate DEVONthink with your workflow.

Send links to your documents to any app which handles web addresses (URLs), e.g. OmniFocus or Mail, or export your documents in their original file format. DEVONthink doesn’t hold your data hostage.



Keep everything in sync

Use DEVONthink on all your Macs and synchronize your database between them at the press of a button. Work effortlessly with the same data in your team.

Connect your database to another copy of DEVONthink or add them to a "sync store" on Dropbox, your own WebDAV server, or just anything mountable, e.g. a USB stick. Even DEVONthink Pro (Office) users can check out your data. Keep your database in sync automatically at regular intervals or at any time you click the sync button.

Give your teammates access to the sync store or your Mac and let them download your synchronized database. Set a user name and password to let only those in who should be in.

Note: Our software licenses can be used on multiple Macs when all of them are used by the same person only. In a team every Mac running DEVONthink requires its own license. We offer attractive volume discounts. Group or site licenses are not available.
