  • Awesome for Academic Research

    By DanoSchmano
    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)
  • 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.
  • Truly professional software

    By AutomationWeirdo
    If you need a document management solution that can support detailed notes, complex and varied documents, and a range of file types, look no further.
  • 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.
  • Expected More

    By JulioB
    I expected so much more from this application yet I ended up being disappointed. First is $15 which is perfectly fine but then there is an additional $8 charge for more functionality? Charging $15 and then asking for more at such a higher price turns users away, at least it turn me away. Second the application says that it can back up to iCloud which is awesome, except that it can’t sync it with the desktop version that can save to iCloud Drive. What’s the point if you can’t sync the desktop version with the mobile version? Was really looking to use this application as an alternate to Evernote and I guess am stuck with Evernote still.
  • App icon is broken

    By Oliver1222
    Maybe it's just me, but the app icon is broken. It is now that default icon with circles and cross on white background. I tried rebooting my phone multiple times and it didn't fix the problem.
  • Great. Good. Works for me.

    I can store and recall what I need. I can organize to my preference. I can sync with DevonThink Pro on desktop. This company really has a solid product and I haven’t seen anything to compare.
  • Cannot recommend this app enough!

    By JSully217
    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. I cannot recommend this app enough!
  • Great companion to wonderful app but missing a few features

    By Schabra
    Good- - Almost no learning curve; Typical iPad app. - Beautiful Interface - A must buy if you want strong integration with Mac version - No Bugs/ crashes -PDF editor upgrade very useful unlike their desktop version (comparable to PDF Expert but not better) Needs Improvement- -Tags and labels should have better visibility and allow for labels -Background of PDFs should have options for less eye strain -PDF editing is a paid upgrade; instead should allow editing in PDF Expert or Files software. - No OCR; should be free for those who bought the pro office version on desktop. They can create a script that automatically OCRs new pics added from iPad in desktop version upon sync. - Limited Smart Folders. They should sync between machines or allow more options. Recommendation- Buy and review so that developers can keep upgrading.
