In the last few months we focused on getting DEVONthink 3 ready for prime-time and so it had become a bit quiet around DEVONthink To Go. Today, version 2.7.2 has passed Apple's review.
Our maintenance release brings the sync mechanism on par with DEVONthink 3, makes its handling of indexed items consistent to the Mac, and brings back the sync status sheet. Change the stacking order of PDF annotations and, finally, view highlight annotations added with DEVONthink on the Mac. If you're a Bookends user you can now link to items stored in your favorite references manager using the Bookends URL scheme. (more)
Sometimes you might want to add data from Dropbox into your DEVONthink databases. With DEVONthink on a Mac this is as simple as dragging and dropping. On iOS, however, Dropbox's mobile application doesn't allow for this kind of interaction. So is there an option for easily adding Dropbox data to DEVONthink To Go? (more)
Suppose you’re working with a friend or colleague who isn’t running DEVONthink on her Mac (heaven forbid!). But they have a file you need and you have your iOS mobile device running DEVONthink To Go. Is there any way to get it transferred quickly and easily? (more)
The maintenance release comes with an updated PDF library which fixes a crash during indexing PDF documents. Version 2.7.1 also deletes temporary files used for synchronizing with iCloud as soon as a file is fully uploaded. Direct connections prefer IPv6 now if both IPv4 and IPv6 are available. Finally, the update improves the overall robustness of the app. (more)
DEVONthink 2.11 and DEVONthink To Go 2.7, released today, add push notifications to the synchronization. Whenever you now make changes to your databases our app sends notifications to all your other devices telling them that something new is waiting for them. That means that it takes much less time before changes are available on all your devices. And as a bonus, it lets us wake up DEVONthink To Go, even when your iPhone or iPad is still in your pocket or bag, and pull the new data in the background. (more)
Halloween’s over and the ghouls have hoarded the sweets they need to survive until Christmas.
On a side note, DEVONthink To Go 2.6.5 has become available too. The maintenance release indexes items without searchable text locally, e.g. email synchronized from DEVONthink Pro, and enhances the way it handles the keyboard when searching. It also improves the reliability of retrieving web page thumbnails, the progress indication when verifying and cleaning sync stores, and the overall reliability and performance of the synchronization.

Our power user Klaus Kandert writes complex Shortcuts workflows for iOS. He uses them for managing business proposals, projects, and other inquiries solely on his iPad. And now he has begun writing about his workflows and how to put the iPad to use for professional work: … (more)
This week Apple officially released iOS 12 with many under-the-hood changes. DEVONthink To Go 2.6.4 has just become available on the App Store and brings some necessary adjustements for Apple's new operating system version as well as for the iPhone XS Max. (more)
When we discuss backups, we generally advocate primary backups on local drives. However, we sometimes hear, “But, I want to use an online backup!” While, this is indeed possible, here are a few things to bear in mind: … (more)
Right in time for the sunny weekend DEVONthink To Go 2.6.3 has passed Apple's review and is now available on the App Store. With this maintenance release we're concentrating to make the app faster and more reliable, especially the synchronization. Among many other improvements DEVONthink To Go no longers sleeps during very long sync runs and uses a less storage space when importing databases shallowly. (more)
