  • iOS essentials

    This application is absolutely indispensable and would be a bargain at twice the price. Tons of syncing options and incredible document management options.
  • Love this App

    Helps me prepare for court and hearings
  • Awesome

    By shawsome.brian
    This app is a lot like Evernote, but using your own storage, which is much safer. Plus, once you buy it, you OWN it. No per device licensing or plus plan required. I’d love to give a more informative review, but I’m just getting started with Devonthink. I’ll update review once I’m more familiar with it. It’s also a really awesome markdown editor. 👍🏼
  • (Was) Awesome for Academic Research

    By DanoSchmano
    v2.5 - Update to 2 Stars - Key Feature Broken Not happy that the latest update has broken the ability to use any external PDF-annotation app (e.g., PDF Expert, etc.) — external apps just crash when trying to edit. In the middle of term-paper research, so the timing is definitely *not* good. I have purchased the DTTG PDF option, but it is not in the same league as PDF Expert. Hope you his bug gets fixed quickly. v2.4 - Was 5 Stars Using DTP Office & this app to manage my research. Love how external PDF reading/editing apps can access the database through the Files app now. Makes organizing & keeping things in sync much easier. If you have a lot of information to keep organized, I highly recommend their Mac/iOS suite of software. P. S. - See MacDrifter’s blog posts for details on wiring the apps up (it’s far from obvious as they are so powerful)
  • I spent all this money and all I got was a revolution in my workflow

    So, I’m going to start with this: this suite of applications is very expensive. If you’re not a content-heavy professional, it may be too expensive for you. On the phone, this app is good for reading and clipping, but not much else. On the iPad, holy moley is it useful! I can clip a PDF of a webpage and draw on it, I can bookmark links and work directly in the application. Tonight I spent three hours marking up design documents and requirements using nothing but my iPad!! That all required the Pro features, though. A couple of needs: - You need to save cookies. My corporate documents are behind 2FA, and the resetting of all cookies each time I go to another document is just hard. I’m constantly having to enter my password and manage a push notification - let me resize text bubbles! - work better with OmniGraffle and OmniOutliner, please. I use those tools a lot. - work on the file management a bit more, please. It’s hard to only see one folder at a time. - needs outlook support This app is really useful, I’m glad I bought it. I hope you don’t release the new version next week and make me pay for it, though. This stuff is expensive.

    Been using the os app for years but it’s useless for syncing. Stick to the os version, which is buggy and expensive but works most of the time.
  • Best document manager for Mac OS and iOS

    By DadaStar2
    This is hands down the best document manager app, both on Mac OS and iOS. While the MacOS version clearly needs a GUI refresh as it feels much outdated today, the mobile app is just perfect. It is elegant, intuitive, simple to use, and a daily joy to see and work with. Last but not least, DEVONthink always provides great support, too.
  • Great !

    I used evernote for years, a decade or more. I had heard of DEVONthink, but always along the lines that yes it is a good program / app, but it is too complicated. So when evernote starting playing fast and loose and continued to refuse encryption, I dabble with a few others and was on Apple Notes (after the rewrite) and Together and later Keep It. As I have over 6,000 notes in about two dozen Notebooks – well now we call them Groups, the others did not sync well. DT is EXCELLENT. DT is NOT complicated. My main database is on my MacBook Pro, and it syncs with my iPad, phone, and Mac Mini with Bonjour. I am not rocket scientist, and had the sync up and running in minutes. I use a ScanSnap scanner to get actual paper into the system. There are TONS of additional ways to save to DT. The search excellent. My dad always said the best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago – My only problem with DEVONthink was not switching sooner.
  • Data Storage

    By Apple Product User 3279
    DEVONthink is complicated. It is the type of app you have to have someone that specializes in it. I am using it still as a trial. My concern is that I don’t know what it is doing. My fear is that if my hard drive fails, I will find out that the only place my files existed were on that drive. Syncing with Dropbox remains mysterious. Syncing with iCloud is non existent.
  • Versatile and effective

    By LAFontFan
    Great way to store and organize all sorts of files. I especially like the ability to drag an e-mail from Apple Mail into a folder (“group”) and then read the e-mail (fully formatted) inside of DEVONthink.
