DEVONtechnologies has enhanced all editions of its intelligent information and document manager with a completely rewritten synchronization. The new system is build for speed, robustness and flexibility.

It works both on the local network and with internet-based services. Strong encryption protects the users’ privacy. In addition, the release fixes fix minor bugs and glitches in all editions of DEVONthink and DEVONnote. The update is free and recommended for all users.

DEVONthink 2.9 allows to keep databases synchronized using many means of transport. It transmits them between Macs on the local network or stores them in a syncable form on removable hard drives, USB sticks, or SD cards. If it is necessary to keep them in sync also from or with remote locations, it can create sync stores on Dropbox, any WebDAV server, or in the watched folders of for example iCloud Drive, One Drive, or Google Drive.

DEVONthink 2.9 supports both self-hosted WebDAV servers and internet-based services such as CloudMe or Users of Deutsche Telekom in Germany can set up MagentaCLOUD with a few clicks, too.

DEVONthink 2.9 comes with the new ability to convert .emlx email messages to HTML. Thumbnails use less disk and sync store space and PDF thumbnails are scaled to width. DEVONthink Pro Office 2.9 comes with rewritten ScanSnap support. In addition, all editions including DEVONnote 2.9 handle large selections up to 2,000 times faster. They also remove search syntax when copying to the find pasteboard to make reusing search terms easier. The update fixes some minor issues and improves performance and stability too.

All editions of DEVONthink as well as DEVONnote require an Intel-based Mac and OS X 10.8.5 or later (in the Mac App Store: OS X 10.9 or later). They can be downloaded from and be test-driven for free before they need to be properly licensed. DEVONthink Personal and DEVONnote are also available in the Mac App Store; DEVONthink can be purchased in bundles with DEVONagent for an attractive bundle price in DEVONtechnologies’ online shop.
