What's New in Version 2.1.6
This maintenance release fixes issues related to the "Clip to DEVONthink" sharing extension.
Cannot recommend this app enough!
I use DEVONthink To Go all day every day for collecting all sorts of information. Everyday I am grabbing Twitter links/web pages and quickly throwing them into DEVONthink to access later. But it doesn't stop there, my entire PDF library lives within my DEVONthink databases and when I'm in a meeting I can quickly pull up DEVONthink To Go and have access to all of them. I use DEVONthink exclusively as my note and research tool, all day I am throwing more and more information into DEVONthink and it handles it all with ease.
With the 2.1 release you can now use DEVONthink To Go as a Document Provider, which is probably the best feature they have added to date. I have moved most documents that I kept outside of DEVONthink into my databases as I can now easily open the live file in another app, make my changes and save it back without leaving a copy of the file in the editing app. The document provider feature is an in-app purchase and well worth the money to support an amazing company who is continuously updating the app.
I cannot recommend this app enough!
The app is very powerful but also strange. Viewing some content types are weird. Like, photos, books, etc. The app displays borders when displaying this content at all times. If you want to put blueprints on a screen for example, you will always see the titles and it's not possible to turn them off. If you are reading a very dark document then there will always be white borders that can't be disabled. This isn't a complete deal breaker, but it is hard when you have a disability like I do. The developers are responsive and seem willing to improve the app. It is nice to have a lot of the features of Evernote but keeping your files in your control.
I don't recall having so any problems before this update, but synchronization is completely unreliable. If your device is set to sleep whatsoever it will never finish syncing, and you get stuck in an endless loop or you have to sit and baby sit your device ot make sure it never sleeps. They clearly haven't factored out how to actually do incremental sync and resume, as it seems to just start over and over and over and over and over and over and over. I was hoping using Bonjour would be faster than Dropbox, but the app won't even let me turn on the databases to sync via Bonjour...they show up but the "on/off" sliders are completely unresponsive. Neat, so glad I am forking over as much as I have for a hotel california of data that I can't even access now.
