Many documents can be viewed and edited inline, without resorting to Quick Look or opening another app. Read webpages as if they were local documents.
Be more productive
Let DEVONthink automatically file new documents for you based on how you filed similar documents. Later, the advanced search function retrieves the documents that you need for your task, while smart groups present related data together. Quickly find similar documents using keywords extracted from the document and the unique "See also" function.
Create something new
Collect, analyze, summarize, write: With DEVONthink you have all you need in one app that actively supports your workflow. View all your data in one place, use our innovative approach to tags to quickly organize documents, and write in the enhanced rich text editor. Use manual or automatic Wiki-style links to effortlessly cross-reference your work.
DEVONthink's two full screen modes help you stay focused, while smart templates are a great starting point for new documents.
Your data, no boundaries
Store your documents in the self-contained database or simply reference them by using the index feature. Clip data from other apps with just a keystroke, adding it to the GTD like inbox for later filing, or take notes with the Take Note panel or the Dashboard widget. Browser extensions, the Services menu, and the Sorter panel integrate DEVONthink with your workflow.
Send links to your documents to any app which handles web addresses (URLs), e.g. OmniFocus or Mail, or export your documents in their original file format. DEVONthink doesn’t hold your data hostage.
Keep everything in sync
Connect your databases to another copy of DEVONthink or add them to a "sync store" on Dropbox, your own WebDAV server, or just anything mountable, e.g. a USB stick. Keep all your databases in sync automatically at regular intervals or at any time you click the sync button.
Give your teammates access to the sync store or your Mac and let them download your synchronized databases. Set user names and passwords to let only those in who should be in.
The Pro advantage
Use separate databases for each project, and let automatic grouping create order from chaos. Add RSS feeds to your database to automatically import new articles, or download and archive full websites. The concordance gives you a real-time analysis of your data.
AppleScript support, Automator actions, and script-driven smart templates let you integrate DEVONthink with other software. The sky's the limit!
