DEVONthink To Go 1.0 Released

DEVONthink To Go has been released to the App Store and is now available for US $14.99.

DEVONthink To Go lets users bi-directionally synchronize their DEVONthink or DEVONnote databases with their iPads, iPhones, or iPod touches, and so take all their important documents, email messages, and bookmarks with them. Once synchronized the groups and documents can be browsed, viewed, and searched.

DEVONthink To Go works with as many desktop document formats as possible on iOS, lets the users view them, share them by email, or open them in third-party apps such as iAnnotate PDF. Documents annotated or changed in other apps can then be 'opened back' in DEVONthink To Go to update them in its database. Plain text documents are editable right on the device (with TextExpander support when installed on the device), and so are comments, labels, flags, and unread statuses.

Both names and the full text of documents can be searched in an instant. Special lists for recently used and unread items as well as filters that, e.g., show only flagged items within a group make working even with large collections comfortable. Document lists can be sorted after a variety of fields, and an info screen shows all relevant metadata about databases, groups, and documents.

All changes that can be made on the device are synchronized back to the Mac counterpart. Synchronization uses WiFi and so requires both device and Mac to be on the same WiFi network. A future version will also support through-the-cloud synchronization with MobileMe and other services such as WebDAV or DropBox as well as audio and video notes. Users do not need to transfer their whole databases to the device, a 'Sync' group in every database allows to select the items to get synchronized on a group-by-group or even item-by-item level.

To protect the user's privacy DEVONthink To Go honors the user name and password settings set for a database on the desktop and asks for credentials when the database is used on the mobile device.

When used with DEVONthink Pro Office on the Mac, images taken on the device are, if desired, fed through the ABBYY text recognition engine on the Mac, which makes all recognized text in the image searchable. The created PDF is sent back to the device with the next sync.

We are really excited about DEVONthink To Go. It finally lets all our DEVONthink and DEVONnote users extend their workflow also to their iPads and iPhones making DEVONthink the number one document management solution not only for the Mac but also for all iOS devices. - And this is only the beginning," states Eric Bohnisch-Volkmann, President of DEVONtechnologies.

Pricing and Availability:
