  • Came back after a while

    I stopped using this app a while ago due to problems. I decided to check it out again. So glad I did!!! Great and reliable app now.
  • Fantastic companion to OSX application

    By Garrett1131
    DevonThink To Go has come a long way as a comprehensive companion to the OSX application. Note how most of the one-star reviews are complaints from users who didn’t read the product description. This, by itself, is not a full DevonThink experience. It is the digital folio you take with you, while the hefty file cabinet stays at home. It is a portable DevonThink experience, but needs it’s home base on a proper Mac computer. If you can follow the basic instructions and premise of the app, you’ll get a great deal out of this (and that’s where the five star reviews appear.)
  • Good, when it works

    By Hezmana
    Spent almost 3 hours trying to get the app to sync with the iCloud database uploaded from my Macbook. This included email conversations with their one and only tech support person (per the rep). When I asked for someone else he replied he was it. I had to delete and reinstall the app 5 times or so to finally get it to sync. I followed the same process each time, so no reason for it to finally start working. I like the idea of the iOS app and using iCloud, I just do not think they have it nailed down yet. I gave 3 stars, because once it started working it was fine, but the setup process which should have been easy using iCloud was awful. Month or so later, sync not working again, will probably just delete perm and write off the cost as lesson learned Later: got it working again, the most recent update turned off passcode/touch id without asking.
  • Great app, solid sync

    By D.L. Beatty
    I’ve used DEVONThink Pro Office for years on my Mac to index thousands of PDFs, after initially trying several other apps. DEVONThink To Go was at first an amusing accessory, but the developers have steadily improved it to take advantage of Apple’s continuously growing mobile device capabilities. Sync was problematic for a while but the latest version has made this feature rock-solid and fast. I can do heavyweight data entry on the Mac and access everything wherever I am. Coupled with a big iPad Pro and a nice Fujitsu scanner, I am nearly paper-free in my record-keeping. It gets 5 stars only because I can’t give more.
  • My go to personal database

    By ddmckay
    I moved from Evernote to DEVONthink a couple of years ago and have never looked back. I use the mobile client and their wonderful pro office product on my desktop. Sync works well over iCloud and the “trust no one” encryption with a key you control gives me confidence my data is secure. Highly recommended.
  • Syncing is still not safe without solid internet connection

    By HilbertAx
    UPDATE: WebDAV is basically STILL broken if you do not have constant internet connection. Please fix this, even if connection comes and goes, this app should not corrupt the database with “missing manifests” errors. I lost a very important pdf full of notes, because it didn’t sync to the database and now it’s lost forever. I edited and wrote a lot of content, and since internet was not working properly, DTtogo did not sync it; the app eventually closed without saving it offline. Unacceptable!
  • Best one out there

    By Writtrr
    I’m an org/list app junkie who needs to be able to store, organize and quickly retrieve documents, etc. DEVONthink is the best. I’ve tried Evernote (who hasn’t?), OneNote, Bear, etc. This is absolutely the best. Intuitive and reliable with a great GUI. And a manual. Worth the price.
  • Overly complex and lacking in design polish

    By Mynameisted
    Syncing over iCloud is a convoluted process and is extremely buggy. I am close to giving up on this app and using Keep It instead.
  • My file system

    By BarbarianGeek
    I use DEVONthink to store almost all of my files and data. It also works as my Read Later system, and is completely indispensable. It’s not cheap to get fully into DEVONthink (Mac and iOS), but it very worth it.
  • Where would I be without it?

    By Wakkwakkaflakkaflook
    DEVONthink has become indispensable to me. It’s quite honestly the only thing keeping me on MacOS at this point (I’m staying with iOS). It’s a phenomenal tool for organizing and synchronizing your data between systems; I use it for categorizing and annotating research papers (among tons of other things)
