DEVONtechnologies has updated all editions of its intelligent information and document manager DEVONthink as well as its iOS counterpart DEVONthink To Go with synchronization improvements and bug fixes.
TDEVONthink 2.9.3 and DEVONthink To Go 2.0.2 bring a large number of sync-related improvements again. By using more aggressive chunking for static and small items synchronizing to sync stores, e.g. WebDAV or Dropbox, requires up to 30% less bandwidth, up to 50% less disk space, and up to 75% fewer files. This speeds up sync-related operations up to 3.7 times over the previous version.
What’s more, the updates improve the reliability of direct connections as well as sync performance and robustness in general. On iOS, DEVONthink To Go 2.0.2 better manages memory usage when synchronizing databases with many or very large documents. This makes it less likely that iOS kills the app during sync. It’s also possible to use multiple Dropbox sync stores in DEVONthink To Go now.
On the Mac, all editions of DEVONthink 2.9.3 show unsynchronized changes with a dot in the sync toolbar icon. They truncate long sync location names in the middle and show the name of the currently synchronized database in the activity panel. DEVONthink and DEVONnote 2.9.3 support Airmail 3 for sharing documents and provide more data when dragging items to third-party applications.
DEVONthink To Go 2.0.2 greatly improves the overall performance, e.g. when navigating groups, counting items, or updating the full-text index. Version 2.0.2 deletes whole databases faster too. The enhanced Clip to DEVONthink share extension works with any provided file format now. In addition, it can clean up webarchives with Instapaper and Markdown with Readability.
All editions of DEVONthink require an Intel-based Mac and OS X 10.9 or later. They can be downloaded from www.devontechnologies.com and be test-driven for free before they need to be properly licensed. DEVONthink Personal is also available in the App Store; DEVONthink can be purchased in bundles with DEVONagent for an attractive bundle price in DEVONtechnologies’ online shop. DEVONthink To Go requires iOS 9.1 or later and is available through the iOS App Store as soon as it has passed the app review.
Prices are: DEVONthink Pro Office, $149.95; DEVONthink Pro, $79.95; DEVONthink Personal, $49.95 (Mac App Store: $49.99); DEVONnote:, $24.95 (Mac App Store: $24.99); and DEVONthink to Go ($14.99; in-app purchases are available).
