Together for Mac3.8.8

11 August 2017

Store and organize all of your files.

What is Together for Mac

Together helps you organize your Mac, giving you the ability to store, edit and preview your files in a single clean, uncluttered interface.

Together Features
  • Smart storage. With simple drag-and-drop functionality, Together lets you gather up images, text, bookmarks, and files for safekeeping. With built-in note-taking capabilities and easy inter-app file transfers, take control of cluttered, disorganized groups of files and restore them to a state of order and manageability.
  • Previewing and editing. Together can edit and preview a wide range of filetypes, and seamlessly incorporates QuickView for everything else. File editing is always a double-click away, and your changes are automatically synchronized.
  • Organization, optimized. If you are tired of dealing with scatterbrained systems of files and folders, Together's refreshing, iTunes-like interface will help you breathe easy. Organize items into groups and folders, add color-coded tags and labels, and even generate Smart Groups to bring new levels of order and control to your files.
  • Dynamic searching. With Together, searching your files is never limited to a single term: an integrated Find Bar offers fine-tuned searching, and intra-file search capabilities let you dig even deeper for the information you need.

What's new in Together

Version 3.8.8:
Changes:
  • Fixed an issue where the the app could hang at startup when the previously viewed file is a linked file whose original has been removed in the meantime.
  • Added the ability to export all the files in a library in open formats for use in other apps, including metadata in either JSON or property list format. Notes are exported as RTFD files, linked files are copied, and encrypted files can be decrypted before export or skipped (the files in the library are unaffected). The folder structure is preserved, with "un-filed" files at the top level. Metadata includes info about files and folders, tags, groups and labels. Choose File > Library > Export Library from the menu to use this feature.

A lot of people rate this (and similar apps) quite highly. However, I find "Finder" > "Cmd-F" (+ selected variable "search" parameters) allow me to perform 95% of this, and other file sorting apps functionality, without having to worry about eccentric developer commitments and coding methodology. Notwithstanding, Finder is free. Enjoin it with Automator and it creates a delusion of Dictatorial proportions.

The discussion below explains the reason I don't use this type of "Everything Bucket" apps. Users are forced to spend so much time to migrate from one solution to another every time some developers decide that it isn't worth developing and maintaining their apps. That isn't necessarily wrong, except that this type of apps often keeps your data in a roach motel. Once it's in there, it's tough to get them out. And don't even get me started on how they have Import/Export feature under the File menu. There is no guarantee they will always work. Journler (now defunct) had them, but it stopped working at some point, and I had to figure out a weird and tedious workaround. Evernote's Export feature choked on me many times when I tried to export 2,000+ entries in it. The usual "open a support ticket" routine ensues, and you are bound to waste the next couple of weeks trying to figure out why you can't get any response from your app developer.

I freed myself of all of that by establishing my workflow outside these apps: Markdown text files and folders. I just use whatever the best tool available at the moment to edit my data in open format. I don't need to spend time tinkering and worrying about what the future might hold for each app. They all come and go, so you are better off keeping all your data in open format as much as possible.

You might think that the file and folder method is clumsy, but I found it just as effective as using an Everything Bucket app. I can keep tags inside a text file, and Spotlight can pick them up. A thoughtful file name with some tags at the end of each file name also does the trick. Elegant? Nope. But it works everywhere where the OS has a search function, and my tags are not lost by moving to another computer. And it's super-reliable and predictable. That's more important than some non-essential conveniences Everything Bucket apps might provide.

This is the worst app I have ever tried, and it is ridiculously expensive. After about six months of using, I needed to reorganise my work files - all of which are translation projects filed in project folders with different files such as PDF, jpg, txml, etc. I exported all my projects from the past two (!!) years out of Together, to import them in the new Archive (in Together) that I had just created. And ALL projects were blown into pieces. All of them. The app thought it's a good idea to rip open the folders and organise all files by type: all PDFs in a row, all Word docs, all TXMLs... you get the picture. Of course I wrote the developer - whose only stroppy answer was that I should have made a backup with Time Machine. As a customer who paid good money I demanded he find a fix. He never wrote back again, and trying to look into this issue was of no further importance to him. Needless to say, I trashed the thing. Luckily, it was only the archive. Projects of the past. If I could give 0 stars for this, and the attitude of "customer service", I would even then ask for Minus review. I can only warn about this app.

This is a nice app. This issue I have with is is that it only syncs though iCloud. I am already paying for a Dropbox subscription. I'm sure some people will have a different experience, but I have found Dropbox to be FAR more reliable than iCloud in the years that I've used them both. Additionally, almost all competing apps have Dropbox sync (as well as other services). The developer should add functionality at least Dropbox, if not Box, Google Drive and OneDrive, as well.

Fine app for users who lacks a good files organizer, though a bit expensive. Together would be helpful in attempts to handle with numerous documents, photos and files on a Mac, to put them into a good order and access them easily when you need to find one or another folder or item.

I’ve been very critical of Together in the past - mostly with the icloud syncing. The developer stuck with it and that persistence has paid off. I’ve had no issues with out of sync databases on two desktop Macs, 1 laptop, 1 iPad and 1 iPhone. If you’ve tried Together in previous versions, I urge you to give it another chance. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

It seems the developer has heard the complaints about syncing – he completely rewrote the syncing process. I haven't have time to test it in detail, but what I really like is that you can now keep your files in a local folder anywhere on your mac (that get's synced via iCloud Drive) so you are always secure not to lose data; it's not in a "black hole" somewhere in the cloud anymore. For what I tested the latest version so far, syncing is very fast indeed, so I have good hope that this great app comes back on track again!

I agree with DarwinM7533's comments. Steve Harris has done a tremendous job over the years improving Together. His customer support is top notch, he promptly fixes bugs and consistently adds new features to Together. I applaud his dedication to the work he has done to Together. I've been using this app since he changes its name from Keep It Together and will continue to support it's development.

Bottom line, the app works...UNLESS you want it to sync. I've tried everything to make this work with its iOS counterparts, and it just doesn't. Yes, the developer has been responsive, but the fundamental flaw remains. Despite advertised competencies, this app does not sync—period. Blame Apple if you want, but I can point to more than one app that has managed to figure out how iCloud works, problematic as it is. Given what's promised, my rating stands.

I am using Together to manage five databases. It has completely replaced the folder structure I kept in Documents and made searching for and aggregating files for specific purposes significantly faster and more enjoyable.

I've found Together far easier to use than DEVONthink Pro and much, much better at handling files than Evernote. Excel files--and their individual worksheets--are viewable from within the program, as well as OmniOutliner files--two types I use daily. The ability to add tags, create tag bundles, use labels, assign favorites, and create smart folders is outstanding. This is one of my most used programs.

I haven't had a single crash issue with Together, though I am using the non-MAS version and thus not using iCloud.

In my experience, Steve Harris, the developer, is very responsive, informative, and honest. When Apple improves its iCloud service so files sync faster and more reliably, I will migrate to Together's MAS and iDevice versions so I can access my databases on iPhone and iPad.

Together is my app of choice when it comes to collecting and keeping "reference material", as we would term it in a GTD-work-environment. You can write and store notes, throw any file-type at it, organise everything… There are many useful features, here my favourites:

+ It has a very, very well made iOS app (sync over iCloud), which sets this app apart from the competition.
+ Organise notes and files using tags, tag bundles, labels, groups, smart groups, folders…
+ Notes with tables, lists, links (also links to other notes, like a "personal wiki"), etc.
+ Capture material using bookmarklets from your browser
+ Everything you import comes into a nice "inbox" folder, which I use like David Allen's "Read&Review" stack
+ Very "mac-like": probably more Apple-ish than Apple's own apps. And well, designed with love for detail – a joy to use

The negative:

- iCloud Drive isn't (or wasn't?) a very fast nor reliable sync service. For most of the problems users here at MacUpdate complain about, I would blame Apple: the same sync-errors that happened with Together I have experienced with other iCloud-synced apps like Notability, Pages, Numbers, Money, etc. Unfortunately, Apple has a terrible track record when it comes to web services – somehow, web service just isn't in Apple's "DNA". Anyway: those iCloud-Drive technical teething problems just when Yosemite came out seem to be solved, everything works perfectly now, and syncing is quick and comfortable (at least for me).

Overall, I would recommend Together as a perfect app if you have a GTD-workflow and are looking for a way to manage your reference material and want to take it with you via iDevices – without having to rely on a subscription based cloud service like Evernote. Together sits nicely as an accompaniment next to OmniFocus, The Hit List or Things or whatever else you use for GTD.

I'd love nothing more than to be able to use this app and ditch Yojimbo. Unfortunately, Together crashes on me every time I open it. I've sent crash reports to the developer, updated both Mac and IOS apps every time there's an update and still, I can't get more than a MINUTE out of this app before it crashes - and most of that minute is taken up with a spinning beach ball. It's completely unusable. My collection of items is the exact same one I have in Yojimbo - mostly pdf files and less than 1500 total. Very, Very disappointed.

I have NEVER seen an app get such ongoing whnny and demanding feedback - its a good app - but its an app. If you dont like the limitations Apple places on its products, their use and invariably software designers then get of your Mac and get a PC. See how you like having too much freedom, no safety and as much free stuff as you can stuff your machine with - after that the last thing you will need is a file organiser You will be wanting pen and paper probably after that :-) And I believe you still have to pay for every notebook, every time, and same with the pens! What an outrage! Great App thank you for your time and effort!

I've never left a review before, but some of the whining about having to pay for the App Store version to get iCloud compels me to come to the developers defense. There are lots of existing (and popular) apps that have the same issue. Used 1Password for several years and now want iCloud sync? You'll have to buy a new copy from the App Store. It's not the developers' fault. It's the way Apple has implemented sandboxing in App Store applications. I stopped using Together several years ago but have rediscovered it recently. The developer has always communicated about his upgrade policies and opportunities for doing so. The people here complaining strike me as trolls, not sincere commenters. Anyway, I'm quite happy with this new version and am happy to have purchased it from the App Store. This is an indie app and the developer works hard. Stop your belly-aching.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

I wish the sync feature supported Dropbox or SugarSync. I didn't use version two, because it didn't have a native sync feature or an iOS companion app. The dropbox workaround is not a good solution. In my opinion, this upgrade isn't much of an upgrade without sync. Together is chained to one of my Macs, but I'm not.

What I'd really prefer is a Finder-like app that allows me to preview files without being annoying. Unfortunately one doesn't exist, but Together is the best app that comes pretty close. I say close because the ding that I see is subjective. It's subjective because there's really only 2 types of apps for document management: 1. import/export to/from a library, and 2: an aggregator that takes forever to initially scan your system and then loads a helper app that affects system performance. If I can't setup a folder system the way that I want on my HDD, and use it with the right app that I'd prefer then I would use the first type of app, and I think this is where Together knocks it out of the park - the big pluses for me are being able to pinch/zoom and copy from the preview window. I've tried DEVONthink, DEVONotes, SOHO Notes, and iDocument. What I didn't like about these apps are sluggish performance as more data is added to the library, ugly design, and helper apps. Together has a nice clean interface, no noticeable performance issue, and the tab option can be disabled and it closes when Together closes. Until someone creates an app that I don't have to babysit, isn't intrusive, mitigates a micromanaging system, and doesn't use background helper apps, Together is the app for me.

One of the best note apps around... and I've tried dozens. Write notes, store notes, organize notes... and post them to e-mail, message, facebook or twitter if you like. Add comments, tags, notes to your notes if you like. And a nice clean interface and app workflow. What could one ask for more? Oh... well — one thing. An option to add simple tables... though they can be pasted from number — to save time it would be great being able to add tables from the app itself. I have a lot of notes that deals with prices and table like data. If you need a noteapp for your Mac... this is it. State of the art!

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, mac-like design and great support. While development of new features isn't very quick, it gets constantly improved and there are frequent bug fixing updates. The upgrade to version 3 I find somewhat underwhelming – iCloud syncing is nice, but overall it feels more like just a face-lift of version 2; nothing substantially new for me. Together is a very versatile app – there are so many things you can use it for and different ways to actually use it, that I find it rather difficult to do Together justice in a review. For me, it was all about managing my ever growing documents library I need for doing research (about 8000 files, mostly PDF but some other file types as well, like pictures, sound, video, etc.). I did take some notes in Together, but that wasn't its main use for me. Anyway, I liked this app because with it I was able to sort my files for each project in groups and attach comments, tags and labels to each file, save searches in smart folders and so on. Very practical, and while one gets many of these features already with the mac's Finder, it is nice to have all work-related files separated from all the other files on the mac. And, of course, Together offers nice features like the bookmarklets for Safari (or any other browser), organising groups and smart groups into folders, etc. However, having to deal with a large documents library, Together wasn't the right app for me. For example, I wished to be able to define the author(s) or editor(s) of a document and then browse my files by author, by editor, etc. In Together you could only kind of do that with the comments field (not comfortable) or with tags and tag bundles: make a tag bundle for "author", another one for "editor", etc. But well, if a person is the author of one document and the editor of another, you run into problems, because the tag can be only in one bundle. So you end up with rather simple tag bundles, like just "people" instead of "authors", "editors" etc. And then the process of tagging is quite cumbersome in Together if you want (or need) to do it systematically, because there is no help apart from auto-completition; you will easily forget one or another tag bundle, and then you have many files with incomplete tags. Another annoyance with tag bundles: sorting by drag and drop is pain if you have many tags – scroll and scroll and scroll through the sidebar… Regarding price, personally, I can see a 20$ price tag for Together, as it is now on sale at the MacAppStore. But 40$ is too much with this feature set. For just ten bucks more you can get an unlimited license of Sente. Sente is a documents managing and bibliography citation app. Even if you don't need the citation features, the documents- and file-management is worth it, Sente feels like Together on steroids. Here you can specify custom document types (with custom fields) – so for example, if you have some video files, you can define what information should be attached, like "year", "place", "camera type", "author(s)", "editor(s)", etc. etc. whatever you like. This makes entering meta-info so much easier and it's great for finding stuff, because when creating smart groups, you can define more precisely what files you want to see. And well, if you like tags and tag bundles, these are just so much better done in Sente: you have hierarchical tags and a quick tag entry panel, where you can just click which predefined tag applies to the file – this speeds things up dramatically and it's so much more comfortable to use, you'd never want to go back to Together's tag bundles. If you have two different versions of the same document, you can save the two (or more) files at the same reference entry. Very useful. Oh yes and in Sente's PDF viewer you can annotate your PDFs, highlight text and so on – if you are just on the go, you can also do that on your iPad, since you sync all your documents (or the Libraries you want) through the cloud, because well, it's 2013 now and as a mac user you can expect an app to have a useful iDevice companion (in case of Sente, it's even free). Anyway, this is not to say that Together is bad – other users may find an app like Sente (or Papers, BibDesk, etc.) bloated and complicated and they'll gladly pay extra for Together's ease of use. However I recommend to assess what you need the app *exactly* for before investing money and (more importantly:) time in it. For managing a large documents library I can't recommend Together.

This product has changed my life. My Desktop is EMPTY. If you're asking yourself why this product and not the others, it's simple. This product MOVES your files into a folder WITHOUT munging them up into some proprietary format, so you can get to them without going through it. It manages your world via projects, which is how you live your business life. It's the BEST file preview / interaction file manager in existence. I read tons of PDFs, and Together remembers where I was in each individual file in between reads. That in itself is worth ALL my money. And unlike BBEdit and CODA, they didn't destroy their product in 3.x.

Together 3 *looks* awesome. It's exactly what I'm looking for in this type of application: Stores documents in the file system, supports a wide variety of file types, has a nice UI, and works with iCloud (!). Yeah! Unfortunately, 3.0 and 3.0.1 are not stable. I've had LOTS of crashes. It's just not ready yet, and I won't be able to use it for a while I don't think. Also, it's a bit slow at present; creating a new document (even a text document) takes a few seconds, and memory usage is fairly high (350 MB for a library with 25 small text files). Still, assuming the developer can figure out these crashes (maybe they should have gotten a better group of beta testers), it shows a lot of promise, and I may purchase the MAS version prior to the 24th to get the upgrade price as it's totally worth $19 for this feature set.

I like so much your app. But the latest release (3.0) is very, very slow when import files, and many times hang. Also, when you are adding a file to a folder or group with the "add to" menu, is difficult to find this folder or group, due to its vertical structure. In a next release it would be nice an horizontal structure of the folders with the command "add to ...", like Papers Devon or Papers. When a Spanish translation?. Thanks, and sorry for my English

I love the update. The interface changes are great and the app seems solid. How do I show item info inline rather than the popup window. The previous design of the info panel WAS so elegant and now it's MUCH more difficult to add metadata. Please bring the old info panel back and Together is easily the best info organizing program on the Mac. I'm taking off one star for the removal of the previous info panel, otherwise it's a SOLID five stars!!

Together is very useful, easy to use and may improve a number of workflows. This app is helping me in more than one way: 1. Organiztion. I organize dozens of PDF and RTF files within theme groups. Many times, a given file belongs to more than one theme. As Together lets you work with links instead of actual files, you can add itens to more than one group and keep all information well organized. 2. Keep track of studies. I mark with colors the items I did read, what I am reading now or how urgent are the documentos still unread. I also evaluate them with the rating attribute. 3. Take notes. It is easy and handy to create notes companion to a PDF book or article you are reading. As Together supports rich text formating, you can make your notes fully compatible with the format used in text editors (in my case, NeoOffice). 4. PDFs are shwn where you let them. This is a wonderful small feature. I stop to read a PDF in a certain page and when I come back to it the same page is open. No need to bookmark or use any remembering resource. 5. Collect information. I add tons of pages from web to my Together library to read later. You can also convert them to PDF prior to adding and keep track of URL sources. Anyway, some improvements could be made in Together: favorites should be treated as library items instead of be listed just in library tab. The same about quick notes. Library may be opened/changed more easily. And text styles could receive a keyboard shortcut to faster use. Finally, I find the app a bit expensive. Note: I begun to use Together with version 2.6 and did not faced the problems other users reported here. It seems all of them were solved.

I tried Together to manage my library of OCR-ed PDFs. It works pretty fast, though lacks a possibility to edit meta datas (like author), which is a crucial for paperless office. After week or two I started to mention that some files are missing and every day there were more and more of them - Together was reporting about "file not available", though manually I could easily find it in its library. Therefor I dropped the idea of using this software - it's just very unreliable to let it control your important data.

I tried both Eagle Filer and Together -- both are great organizational tools -- but in the end I decided to go with Together, which I've been using now daily for some six months: it's easy and intuitive to use; no "proprietary" database that would be prevent me from continuing to easily access content through the Finder; and most importantly, the developer is super-responsive. I've had two issues with the software that I emailed the developer about. In each case I received a response in less than 24 hours, and the issue was fixed with the following update. Love it.

I know, that's a broad question but if you're going to store web receipts, URLs, tips, PDFs (user guides, documents), recipes, gardening stuff, what-have-you, which one works best for you? I use Devonthink Pro Office for more complex storage and research projects, but for the simple document storage, it's overkill. Suggestions anyone?

Latest update fixed the thumb generate crash issue, but I notice every time the app starts up it starts generating thumbs all over again. Thumbs where all generated the last time the app was launched. This causes unnecessary CPU & Memory usage. If thumbs are already generated why force the process each time the app is launched. When working with 2GB plus library's this should be avoided. Takes a long time for the thumb generation process to complete each time the app is launched.

Together is kick-ass and Steve Harris is a design genius. I fricking love it. You are not tied to a proprietary system. Get the Mac App Store version for easy updates. My only complaint is that it's a pain to switch libraries. (you press ⌥⌘ Q and then select the other library from a list). they you have to click switch libraries. There is a bug (i think?) and it doesn't recognise it the first time, as you have to do it twice.

Talk about a heart breaker! Thank goodness for trial versions... this looked like an absolute go, until I attempted a few searches. The search terms are highlighted in context-- but in grey, which makes it way too easy to miss them. i found myself constantly playing a game of hide-and-go-seek. Went to the forums to investigate, figuring I was just too dense to locate the option to change from grey to, say, yellow. Turns out, this request has been on the boards since 2009. One I saw that, I knew it was hopeless. So, I uninstalled and moved on. I don't get it. The whole point of these apps is to assist in FINDing stuff later down the line. All that eye candy, yet I consistently caught heck actually trying to pinpoint what I wanted/needed to see. Oh well, the hunt continues.

I really want to like Together, but after 6 months of using it, I can't say that i really do. It is slow. Very slow. It takes about 10-15 seconds to start, and I barely have 150Mb's of stuff in it. All image previews are turned off too, which I don't really understand. If you include a feature, make it work right, do not tell people to turn it off to increase performance. And this is on a band new 2.53Ghz mini with 4 gigs of ram and a 7200rpm hard drive... I could only imagine how painful it is on older Macs. After using Together on daily basis I find myself using it less and less... At some point i even switched from using groups to using folders to organize everything in order to achieve more performance, which kind of defeated the purpose of the application, so now i just go directly to my neatly organized folders (I guess i can thank Together for helping me organize somewhat... )

I agree with Birdy2. I too bailed and bought an upgrade of Devonthink. In no time at all I was pining for Together's features and relative simplicity. Then came Together version 2.3.5 and I'm now back using Together. One feature of Devonthink that I really miss is the forward and back navigation. I often find myself wanting to go back to a recently viewed item but I don't remember where it is. I can search for it but sometimes this takes a few guesses before I am able to locate it.

I also notice that the CPU usage is low now. Man, I wish this update had come out a few days ago- I just spent unnecessary money buying Devonthink - which has too many (research specific) features I'll just never use. And I'm really missing Together's shelf for getting things in quickly- with Devonthink you have to pay $80 for the pro version to get their version of the shelf. sigh. Since I can't change my previous rating this is to make up for my other one. Thanks Steve for fixing things.

I've been using it for almost 2 years now and I used to love it. It is as close to perfect as it could be for my purposes. The way it mirrors your folders, that it respects file types on import, the shelf that allows me to quickly get items into it, the ability to organize and tag in a meaningful way, and the visual previews of my files- All of it is exactly what I need and more. BUT I have to give it 2 stars, sadly. 5 stars for being pretty much perfect... but -3 because it just doesn't work as advertised. I have about 1000 files in Together, most of them images. What I loved most were the thumbnail previews (as shown in the screenshot up there). They help me find the image I'm looking for quickly in a folder. Without them I just have folders of generic jpg icons with non-descriptive names. But it just doesn't work. With "Show Icon Previews" turned on the app is sooooo slow, CPU usage is so high and it's so prone to crashing it makes me want to pull my hair out. It's literally unusable. Even scrolling through a folder with 20 jpgs in it takes forever. And while it's generating those previews (which it seems to do every time you switch to a folder, not just the first time you view the folder) you can't do anything else- it just stalls. Maybe it could be argued that that's a specific way of using the app and I'm in the minority, but I don't think that should matter; it's something Together is supposed to do. It's a feature I paid $40 for. I've commented on the Together forum and I've written the developer. The response was quick and friendly but the answer is the same and unacceptable: "you'll have to turn off Icon Previews". If Together could just create a thumbnail database that doesn't need to be generated every time then it would be perfect. If Devonthink and the (free) Evernote desktop app can do it, I don't understand why Together can't (or the developer won't). It seems to be a problem mentioned over and over and over - here and in his forums- with no solution except to not use the app the way it's advertised. So I'm switching to DevonThink. I've already imported everything from Together and it works with no problems. I'd still prefer to use Together but I just can't. Please note: if you are primarily considering Together for text notes with a few images or you don't mind not having image icon previews then it is an excellent program. If not avoid it.

I was surprised by how much I liked this app. I had test driven Devonthink, Yojimbo, Evernote etc., and had pretty much settled on Devonthink after using it a couple months, even though it was a bit too robust for my needs. I hadn't heard much about Together and tried it out on a lark. I've been hooked ever since. This is a great product -- lightweight, elegant and intuitive. Exactly what a Mac app should be. It's become indispensable to my workflow. All the digital flotsam I've collected over the years is now centralized, accessible and organized. The feature I like best is that all of my documents exist separate from the program itself. It's not tied up in a proprietary database, so if it gets corrupted, or they stop developing it, my stuff is pretty much intact. Another great feature is that I can organize things in hierarchical folders as well as with tags. Sure, there are things here and there that I'd like to see done differently, but overall, it does exactly what I need it to do. The developer is also extremely responsive, which is always helpful.

I really enjoy using Together. The feature set is best in its class. I consider Together my 'digital hub'; It's where everything comes together on my mac. It is one of my most used 3rd party apps. My favorite things about Together are the tag implementation, the intuitive interface, and the import process. My biggest gripe with the program is that the interface can get sluggish on my ppc and require restarts to speed things up. I notice interface sluggishness in Together more than other apps, but it's not to bad. On Intel I'm sure it's much quicker. Good developer. Handles support pretty well and is excellent at fixing bugs and implementing feedback. peace

Auto tagging doesn't work at all. One of the worst implementation of a feature I've ever seen. Imported a website (xkcd.com - that's the webcomic) and it got tagged with "coding" and "workflow". ??????? Not even the page title? Come on ...

This is a great application. The developer has been constantly developing it. If you try it you'll see that it is much better at capturing web pdfs than other similar apps. I've been using it for quite some time and I just realized that you can Quicklook your documents right from the shelf. If you find it a bit slow when browsing I found that disabling the icon previews speeds it up a lot. It's great for notes, journaling and collecting snippets of information when doing research. It stores your notes and files in a standard file structure within your documents folder so you can use other file browsers if you want.

This product is merely ho hum. Synchronization is poorly implemented and buggy, the program is sloooow to import and the interface is nothing revolutionary. Like other projects in this category (Yojimbo/Eaglefiler/Journaler) there is a lot of potential and room for improvement.

Love it -- Together is just a few updates away from replacing Yojimbo for me once and for all. However, I find the interface in general a bit sluggish, on my MBP window resizing is quite painful. Also, I love how Yojimbo let's you tag super easily. Together doesn't do quite as smooth a job with keyboard navigation. Suggestions?

So far this has crashed on me twice, and i have had to force quit once when it became un-responsive. When i use the "save web page as PDF" It wont give me the option to save the file as the option is grayed out, also closing the tab on the your new import does not prompt you to save.

THis is head and shoulders above 'similar' products such as MacJournal or Journler - if only because itr enders both Pages and Numbers (through Quicklook) . I bought it minutes after using it for the first time. Awesome.

It's getting better all the time. The newly reorganized tag area makes things much easier. My tag list was getting out of control. Auto-tags is sweet. I haven't tested it's usability but it's nice to see it's there. I think the big one everyone wanted to see was the ability to rearrange tabs. Clutch! Thanks Steve for another solid update!

I bought this app hoping the author would implement Sync Services soon. He doesn't. Another update without synking (cp. Yojimbo, SOHO Notes...). I need my notes on my iMac when I return from work where I created them on my MacBook. I'm frustrated.

I wish the developer wasn't the one doing support. That's usually not a good thing. The kind of support and feedback responses I get from the developer are not as thorough and courteous as responses I get from other software companies. The responses seem rushed though not impolite in any way. Go send some feedback or a question to the Omnigroup and see the difference. They make you feel encouraged to report as many bugs as possible and provide feedback (therefor making there software much better.) It gives the developers much more time to work on the software instead of responding to tons of support requests and flickering through the barrage of feature requests that come in. There would be much less pressure on the developer and much better experience for users if there was someone completely dedicated to support who has good customer service skills. Will Shipley once said in a podcast interview that if a developer is doing support for his or her product it is a great disservice to their customers. I agree. Together is very good software. Keep up the good work.

I trialled this for a while, and recently paid to register. To be honest it was one of the easier buying decisions I have made. I had previously tried DEVONthink and EagleFiler. Whilst DEVONthink is a good piece of software I found it took too long to start up, and it's method of using it's own database to store my files was a big issue for me. Databases can become corrupted so as well as storing all my files in DEVONthink I had to keep the original files as well. Both EagleFiler and Together do not work this way, your files are kept in their original format, so even if you experience a problem with the program your files are still accessible from Finder. My main reasons for choosing Together over EagleFiler were mainly the user interface, which I find much nicer in Together, and the way it deals with saving emails. EagleFiler seems to keep emails in separate mailboxes which means you can't have them in the same folder as PDF's or txt files, and it's difficult or impossible to access them directly from the Finder (maybe there is a way round this but at this point I found Together which didn't have the issue). Together simply accepts .eml files which it stores in the same folder as all your other docs, or whatever folder you choose. The one thing I can think of that I would like to see is the ability to zoom into images. At the moment it just displays them as full-size if smaller than the display window, or shrinks them to fit the window if the image is bigger. I'd like to see a button to zoom into a small image to make it increase to fit the window. Together is a lovely piece of software that makes browsing your documents a pleasure rather than a chore.

I'm extremely reluctant to use an organizer such as Together that stores files in its own "way." I know--it stores them in Finder format, but that's not good enough for me. I want to have the organizer be able to bring together files from anywhere on the file system. That way, I get all of the benefits of the organizer (1) without having to worry about accessing the files the normal way and still having them where I would expect, rather than digging through the organizer's own hierarchy every time, and (2) being totally screwed when the organizer is no longer available--AND THAT TIME WILL COME. Does Together have this capability? Do any of the others?

Another great feature is you can edit web archives to remove all the crap not related to the information that is important. The more I use Together the more I realize Together is far better than all the other similar applications and I have tried most all of them. Keep up the great work...

2.1 is a great update. The fact that you can link to a Together entry from another Application is great. I haven't seen any other Application do this. The shelf has greatly improved. Getting stuff into the database has become so much easier with the addition of system wide hot key importing, bookmarklets, improved quick note, and best of all; everything that gets saved to the Together library in the Finder now gets automatically imported into Together. Sweet! :-)
