I used Together (version 2) daily, for about two years… I've moved away from it some months ago, but now with arrival of version 3 I've just had a look back, and checked the new version out. I think Together is a fine app with good, more...

I purchased this 5 months ago through the Macupdate promo, and now Reinvented wants me to repurchase the app from the App Store in order to get the iCloud sync that I've been anxiously awaiting. A three month window for free updates to get a missing feature as essential to the product as iCloud support is too small imho. I doubt I'll continue following this app's development, or that of it's iPhone/iPad counterparts. Burn me once, bad on you.

I really like this app and its iCloud sync, which works very well for me. It is everything I have been wanting from its rivals, but they didn't manage it and now I am converted.

I'm starting to get random errors opening my previous libraries. The app SHUTS DOWN and doesn't let me do anything after it hates on my file. It just randomly occurs, and when it does, the file is TOAST.

That's a hell of a lot of indexing and work to lose.

Love the app otherwise.

Sorry, didn't see file corrupt fixer on the site. FIXED!

Is there any plans to support Dropbox or, preferably, BitTorrent Sync to sync multiple Together libraries. I understand that the Mac App Store version supports iCloud sync, but A) I purchased the app through MacUpdate due to the recent promotion and B) I try to avoid iCloud syncing whenever possible. I'm currently using BitTorrent Sync and it is working well, however, I'd love to not have to worry about remembering to quit before opening Together on another computer. Otherwise, I love the app. Well done!

Version 3.1.5

I'm also trying to use Together with BitTorrent Sync, and so far, it is not a smooth experience. I set up a Together library at work yesterday in my Sync folder, shut the Mac down, and went home, where I found that Together there complained about the library being in the wrong format. So I deleted the .trlib file and let the app rebuild it from the library folder. Worked great until I got to work again this morning, now the office machine says the library is in the wrong format again. Have no idea what's going on, but looks like I'm in for lots of rebuilding the .trlib files! Maybe I'll set up a script to automate this somewhat.

I also am really enjoying the app apart from the syncing issues!


Dropbox sync is not officially supported, but you can do it as outlined here:
Has worked for me (so far).

The app looks very promising, but missing one "a must" feature (IMHO) - live sync with specified ordinary folder.

The app will automatically import files added to any of its library folders, although from that point on you need to manage the files (move, rename, etc) in Together itself.

I wasn't going to update, because I found the previous version to buggy and unstable to use. This has not changed. Together freezes often. Moreover, Together has issue simply starting or restarting. If I have force quit and restart Together or sometimes simply starting my computer, Together thinks the library is already in use. Together then warns that the library could become corrupted if I try to open it. In the past, it eventually did become corrupt.

When I check the memory usage, the "QTKitServer" is listed as "not responding". Together uses 300MB by simply being open. That is more than Finder, Dropbox, Safari, Sky Drive or any app or service.

Sorry you are having problems, but I'm not hearing of issues with the app freezing from other customers. The memory usage may be related or down to whatever content you're viewing. Pretty much everything Together uses to display files comes from OS X, and memory is handled automatically by the system these days to be the most efficient in terms of power use, etc.

In any case, I can't makes guesses at what might be causing your problems, so please get in touch using the email address on the support page if you'd like me to look those issues (for any version): http://reinventedsoftware.com/support/together.html

QTKitServer not responding is not a Together-specific thing. QTKitServer processes are created automatically by OS X when you view QuickTime movies, so any app that shows QuickTime movies (e.g. Safari) will get an equivalent process. If you Google that, you'll see it's a common thing.

So does it sync using icloud or not?

Yes, but only in the Mac App Store version (because Apple only allows App Store apps to use iCloud)

Rickdees Member IconReview+27

Together syncing doesn't work on iCloud. I'm sure the issue is iCloud but that doesn't relieve Reinvented Software from responsibility. They released a product that they claimed synced through iCloud and it doesn't. I've lost half my records. I've also emailed support 4 times imploring them for a fix or workaround and they haven't even responded. To be fair, I've written to them about issues other than syncing and they have responded.

I want their software to work and I want to switch from Yojimbo, but I need their database and sync to be bulletproof. Right now it's not close.

Sorry you are having problems. I responded to all your emails, but I cannot see you responding to mine. Maybe those responses ended up as junk.

Mavericks changed the way iCloud works, and this caused problems for some people who were upgrading from 10.8, and required a new version of Together to function (which Apple didn't approve until a few days after Mavericks' release, despite me submitted it for review as soon as I was permitted to do so).

I have been working with people to rectify those problems, and have also filed bug reports with Apple about the problems, some before Mavericks release. They neither fixed those bugs nor responded. I've done the best I could, but iCloud is Apple's product, so we're all at the mercy of them to a large degree.


Umm, iCloud once again…

You are not the first developer who has some bad experience with iCloud. I use Jumsoft's app Money, they had a lot of problems with iCloud, customer's lost their data, etc. And well, I had corrupted files even with Apple Pages (version 4.x).

Jumsoft now uses Dropbox to sync. OmniFocus has its own server, and Sente (which I use as a documents manager like Together) offers its own cloud service (for a one-time payment of 80$ customers get unlimited space).

Doesn't work on Mavericks yet.
I can access my Together folder that I saved on my Airport drive from only 1 computer now.
Under Mountain Lion, I could from both.
Now, when I try to access it on my backup computer, even with the primary turned off and no chance of a sharing violation, I get an error.
It can't access the sqlite files I/O Error 14 3 times, then;

Together 3 (map: 0xffffff801d42b960) triggered DYLD shared region unnest for map: 0xffffff801d42b960, region 0x7fff8d000000->0x7fff8d200000. While not abnormal for debuggers, this increases system memory footprint until the target exits.

This never happened on 3.0.9, so I rolled back, and it still happens, so it must be since I upgraded the OS to Mavericks.
I tried to change ownership on the folder eve though I can access everything ok, and that made no difference.

I have no other issues access my files from both computers.
I tried to delete and re-create a new Together folder, and the same thing happens.
I can only access it on the computer that created it.

I was leaning towards Together over Devon, but now I don't know. Depends on how fast they fix it, and I am still comparing features on both before I make a final decision.

Hi, Mavericks changes the format used for things like Together's library. I have a workaround here: http://reinventedsoftware.com/support/together.html#sqlitewal

But if you need any more help, please get in touch using the email address further up that page. Thanks.


I am finding version 3.1.1 runs on Mavericks but iCloud sync seems to be broken. Whatever I try, my library opens on one mac but on my second mac Together crashes when it tries to access iCloud. The developer has replied promptly, but no solution yet.

I've continued to try each and every point release of Together 3. I'm still unable to recommend it to even a single client, yet I WANT to use it! The application is beautiful, well thought-out, stable and easy-to-use.

The main reason that I cannot use Together, or recommend it to clients, is it's inability to find single files that:
a. I've newly created in Together
b. I've imported from an external folder.

Yes, it will find some files/documents with no problem, but I've done enough testing with it on different user's machines, different user accounts, and using different sets of data, that I know the search function is inherently flawed. It seems that the developer has attempted to create his own search indexing system, which isn't entirely capable. DEVONthink, Yojimbo, and other applications function just fine, yet Together cannot provide me with simple search results for content that I know exists. My hunch is that the developer should employ some standard Spotlight search indexing functionality, and the search function will be completely different and usable.

This is the only negative that I can find, and I continue to test Together with each release, so I can start to use it every day. But, the lack of a clean, functional search leaves me cold for now.

The app uses Spotlight to search the content of files, apart from email messages and bookmarks, which require special treatment. For everything else, it creates its own indexes using Apple's SearchKit, which should work perfectly, but if not please get in touch at support@reinventedsoftware.com and I can look into it. Thanks.
