Since we released DEVONthink To Go 3.0 we received the question about how to buy the app as a student or educator. In the world of the App Store this is only possible via the Volume Purchase Program (VPP). We would like to know if you are a member of the VPP and if buying via the VPP would be (or would have been) an option for you. (more)
You’re using DEVONthink To Go and already running iOS 11 Public Beta on your iPad or iPhone? We’d love to show you what we’ve prepared for iOS 11 and hear your feedback!
iOS 11 will be released September 19th, 2017. We have closed sign-up for the iOS 11 beta phase. Thank you for your interest and support. (more)
With iWork ‘13 Apple consequently follows the paradigm of “simplicity over functionality”. Pages, Numbers, and Keynote come with a renovated user interface but also a reduced set of functionality. AppleScript support has been removed entirely. It seems that the idea behind this move is to bring the Mac, iOS, and web variants of the iWork apps to the same level — unfortunately the lowest denominator. (more)
In the recent one and a half months Jon, our new iOS developer, has worked himself through the code of DEVONthink To Go and fixed a number of nasty bugs making both the application and the sync more robust. In the coming months he will also replace the current sync code with a totally rewritten library (that e.g. will support MobileMe and Dropbox) as well as introduce new features such as file renaming, deleting, and moving on the device, better PDF support, and more.

It’s not a secret that we are also developing … something … for the iPhone (and the iPod touch). We are now getting near the point that laboratory testing is no longer enough. We need feedback from real users — like yourself! So, if you are a DEVONthink Pro Office user, own an iPhone, and would like to do some beta testing for us, please email me. Seat numbers are very limited due to the ‘provisioning’ procedure that is required for iPhone applications. (more)
There’s a lot of discussion about ‘cloud computing’ and storing your data ‘in the clouds’. Some new applications are based on this paradigm and are either built ‘in the cloud’ or use a servers cluster for synchronizing multiple clients and for giving web access to your data. While we clearly see the necessity for synchronizing a database between two or more Macs and maybe iPhones, we’re still unsure about what implications full web access to your documents has. My top issues are data integrity and data safety. (more)
With all the buzz about the old and new iPhone as well as other smartphones and the the still-existing Palm devices, I wonder how many of you are actually using them for more than just a super-calender, address book, and mobile web browser? Do you take notes, make outlines, even store files on them like on a USB stick? Vote here.
Even after reading so much about Twitter, I am still unsure about what it can be useful for. Looks like a mixture between blogging, instant messaging, IRC-style discussion groups, everything together cooked up in a pot and carefully stirred. The AcademHacK blog gives a few firsts shots about one can use Twitter professionally, but what do you think? BTW: I have opened my own account, but still experimenting.
