What's New

Version 2.6.4

This maintenance release brings improvements, fixes, and changes for iOS 12 and the iPhone XS Max. It also improves the workflow when creating, grouping, or searching for items. DEVONthink To Go now uses the easier-to-read San Francisco font for documents and improves the legibility of headers in item lists. Finally, version 2.6.4 makes more consistent the interplay of enabling incoming Bonjour connections and shallowly synchronized databases.

Very limited as standalone app and buggy

I tried very hard to use it as my document repository on my iPad Pro. I intend to use it as a standalone app instead of a companion for the Mac version.

1. The PDF and general scrolling performance is terrible. It freezes and crashes very often with only a few dozens of PDF files in it. It can barely handle any PDF file with many annotations. Opening them usually makes the entire app freeze. The app lags a lot when scrolling through a grid of files, on iPad Pro!

2. It lacks the most basic file manager functions. For example, I cannot select files to manipulate from a search result. There is no option to select all files in a folder.

3. Its integration with the iOS 11 Files is very poor. Files app can barely load anything from its storage. The developer noted this problem almost half a year ago and promised to optimize for it but it still doesn't work.

In conclusion, it is probably okay as a companion viewer for your Devonthink Mac version. If you want to use it on ios device exclusively, it's not worth the money and effort in my opinion.

Could be perfect but...

Desperately needs external keyboard support, including basic keyboard shortcuts for writing (for bold, italics etc., but also skip to beginning / end of the current line). Just this small step would make it viable as a fully fledged note-taking app which would be awesome. It’s the only reason left to not switch completely from Evernote. (Better font support to match and sync with desktop version would be great too, including adding Avenir Next). Three stars for the frustration of being so close...

Amazing app on iOS and Mac OS

This is on app I could not live without. The syncing is now seamless and it is great for annotating PDFs with the Apple Pencil. The desktop companion is amazingly powerful, using AI to connect relevant documents and data. If you are doing any kind of research or have to manage large amounts of data don’t hesitate. I wouldn’t be surviving my PhD without this.

Emailed support about a slight issue and they were back to me within a day.
