Looks like they did a good job cleaning up the interface of the desktop app. Unfortunately, their website is confusing. They need to hire a marketing person to tell them what needs to be on their site so that it isn't confusing for customers (and people who potentially want to upgrade) to figure out. A good comparison chart of ALL versions would be a start along with the price for each. It looks like the upgrade from DEVONThink Pro 2 to DEVONThink Pro 3 to get some of the same features that I had in 2 is pretty steep compared to the about $50 I paid last time.

$199 for DEVONthink Pro. NOT $99. DEVONthink Standard is $99. - - Why the confusion? DEVON messed around with their application naming with version 3. What WAS DEVONthink Pro v2.x is NOW DEVONthink Standard 3.x. Check their website for details regarding changes. (o_0)

This appears to be a marginally useful database app. I am uncertain because I am unable to really figure out how to use it because the entire endeavor is so inextricable confusing. The problem is that I am an educator in need of a solution NOW, not after 6 months of using the product to figure out how to use it. What is even more egregious is the fact that they offer, but do not honor educator discounts. I have tried to obtain this coveted discount but have been denied. They gave me the directions to get the discount, I re-applied, but they refuse to answer now. There are alternatives to this software, and I do not need an overly militant sales dept who drives up revenue by lying to the public.... If their sales dept acts this way, can you immagine what the rest of the user experience would be like?

I don't understand the appeal of this software at all. I tried the latest version. How is it different from merely organizing files, folders, and Smart Folders in Finder, coupled with the Houdah Spot search, besides all the pointless features, such as tag cloud and "AppleScript and script-driven smart templates?" It sucks up all your time fiddling with scripts and troubleshooting them before getting any meaningful benefits if there are at all — a typical over-engineering for productivity porn addicts. Finder with QuickLook window open will allow me to go through hundreds of plain text files, PDFs, images, and videos. I did all my graduate school researches that way, and it worked just fine. File names can contain some basic meta info that will work just about anywhere without relying on a specific brand of an app like this. A one-trick pony like MailSteward is FAR better and versatile in extracting email messages and use them in any database. And why do I need to use yet another tool to save a webpage when I can copy and paste a webpage in Reader Mode or good old "Save As HTML" command in any browser? Want an entire package in the original state? SiteSucker is FAR better than any of these "Everything Buckets." And, the developer thinks I should pay $199.00 for these things that I can do better and in a more compatible way myself? Talk about ultimate redundancy here. No thanks.

I have been using DevonThink (pro) for a few years now. And I am very satisfied with it. I am now considering moving to version 3 but I continue to find the distinction between the different versions rather confusing! More precisely, I don't like their 'Comparison Edition' page! (on https://www.devontechnologies.com/apps/devonthink/editions ) Rather than see 'The standard edition offers all features portrayed on the DEVONthink product page except those listed above', I would have preferred a simple presentation of all the main features with 3 columns. 'DEVONthink - DEVONthink Pro - DEVONthink Server' IMHO it would have been much clearer.

The transition to DEVONThink versions 3.0 is going to be confusing. Therefore, this page was created to assist users:

Upgrader's Guide
https://www.devontechnologies.com/apps/devonthink/upgrade

"With DEVONthink 3.0 we have cleaned up the editions lineup. We retired DEVONnote and DEVONthink Personal, and rearranged the feature sets of the new editions in a way that we feel makes more sense to more of you...."

The resulting versions for 3.0 will be:
• DEVONThink Pro --> DEVONThink 3.0
• DEVONThink Office --> DEVONThink Pro 3.0
- OR --> DEVONThink Server 3.0

This page lists the features of both the NEW 3.0 Pro version and Server version:

I agree it's a relatively powerful piece of software but I tried this vs. Paperless and Neat and found both those two apps on par and at 1/3 the price. I might be old school but I don't think shareware, as this product is listed as, should cost $200.

Been using DTP since its early days, am very glad they finally modernized and streamlined it (it's always been very stable and highly professional). It's a complex and very powerful app I could not live without, and that is hard to describe as it can be and do so many things. It's central in my Mac-Life. I can only say I'm psyched about this "rebirth".

v2.11.3 is the current version. Be sure you’ve updated from within the program. Regarding v3.0beta1, it downloads as just “DEVONthink”, no Pro. I verified on their website that this is as intended. There are no other beta versions. Have at it. There is a blog discussion of v3.0beta1 here: https://www.devontechnologies.com/blog/devonthink-30b1 “We have sent DEVONthink Personal and DEVONnote into well-deserved retirement.“ “Updates for the Take Control of DEVONthink and Arbeitsbuch DEVONthink ebooks are in the works and will become available in due course. In addition, the Take Control ebook will be FREE for all customers. The documentation for DEVONthink 3 will be downloadable as PDF and ebook with one of the next public beta updates.“ No pricing has yet been published for v3.

DevonThink Pro has been updated to v2.10.2 today, along with all the other versions of DevonThink. Here's the What's New: WHAT'S NEW IN DEVONTHINK PRO 2.10.2 This release brings some fixes for macOS Mojave, as well as improvements in performance and reliability. We updated the HUDs (like the group selector and Take Note panel), as well as fixing visual artifacts in some menus and the scanning interface. Evernote checkboxes and EPUB metadata are now better supported. NEW Added Preferences > Web > Images > Scale images to fit for scaling (large) images to fit. Improved Go > Next/Previous Highlight only uses search hits or highlighted text, but not both; this makes it easier to jump to search hits in rich text documents containing highlighted text. Checkboxes in imported Evernote notes are now preserved. Improved support for EPUB metadata. Improved handling of temporary files; speeds up importing from Yojimbo. Improved support for drag-and-drop from third-party apps like Tinderbox. Much faster updating of Finder comments of files and folders (macOS El Capitan and later). Improved overall reliability and stability. Improved (Sync) Remote databases can now be imported in Preferences > Sync by double-clicking them. Improved performance when handling indexed files, especially those on unmounted volumes. Improved the progress indication and logging while and after verifying and cleaning databases of sync stores. Improved reliability of Bonjour connections. Improved reliability, stability, and performance. Fixed Fixed visual artifacts in some panels, e.g. Clip to DEVONthink and Take Note, and menus (macOS Mojave). Fixed visual artifacts in the scanning interface (macOS Mojave). Fixed visual artifacts when handling PDF link annotations (macOS Mojave). Fixed an issue where the "score" AppleScript property always returned 0. Fixed an issue where scanning with Epson scanners didn't always work. Fixed an issue where the left arrow key didn't work as expected in list and outline views. Fixed a rare crash related to PDF documents. Fixed a rare crash on quitting the application while the Support Assistant was visible. Fixed a rare crash possibly related to memory management. Fixed (Sync) Fixed an issue where generating the list of available databases could consume too many resources. Fixed an issue related to iCloud Drive not being available or enabled. Fixed a crash related to no disk space available on the startup disk. Removed (Sync) Removed sync location templates for MagentaCLOUD (unreliable) and Box.com (will drop WebDAV support on January 1st 2019). This doesn't affect existing sync stores but migrating to other services soon is highly recommended.

The link to v2.10 is incorrect. What you get instead is the previous version from January! Try this link instead: https://s3.amazonaws.com/DTWebsiteSupport/download/devonthink/2.10/DEVONthink_Pro.dmg.zip The link will drop you at their thank you page as well as start the download of v2.10. OR of course you can update from within DevonThink Pro.

This is a really bad-ass tool to organize and access information. How bad-ass is it? Its free frequent revision level releases (i.e. major . minor . revision) a way more comprehensive then the paid major yearly PDFpen's unveilings! And, the last DEVONthink's paid upgrade was released 7 years ago. This just cannot get any cooler! And (a not not untrue fact!), did you know that Chuck Norris said that if he would not have been already using his DNA to store and instantly access fully indexed information about EVERYTHING, then he would have used DEVONthink! How bad-ass is that!? Seriously, go buy DEVONthink for both your Mac and iPad!

This company has terrible customer service. They offer great software but it is also highly complex. You are going to spend a lot of time in the manuals and asking dumb questions on their forums. But beware, the forums allow far too much “RTFM” type commentaries, “what’s wrong with you”, etc. And that’s from the moderators and the forum experts. I have some genuine learning disabilities as the result of injuries suffered in service to my country (disabled vet). I was really hoping that many of Devon’s products would be very helpful for those of us who struggle to organize information on a daily basis. Unfortunately, Devon people do not suffer fools gladly and I have been suddenly and permanently banned from their forums. Why? No explanation was given after I asked repeatedly. Apparently it was for complaining to Devon customer service about how I was getting treated in the forums. To add insult to injury, Devons web site boasts about how they won’t bury problems by closing tickets before they are through and how much they value fairness. Don't you believe it. None of these are values that I have seen. My ticket on this issue was closed prematurely and their head guy refused to provide any justification for their actions. Apparently asking too many questions about good netiquette on their forums will get you banned. I can't see using such a complex and important piece of software (it’s about managing all the files on your Mac), and not being able to ask questions about it on an active user forum. Devon makes great software. I have no argument with that. I have a license for DevonThink Professional Office, DevonAgent, and some others. But learning something with such complex capabilities, having learning challenges of my own, and having such a non user friendly forum, just got to be too much. I have been trying to use Devon products for a couple of years now. Sadly, I probably will not continue with this company barring a sharp reversal in their way of treating customers. Why pay for abuse? Your mileage may vary. I have rated this software as low as it can go, not because it isn't really smart software but because if you can't get help using it or worse, you are ridiculed and then banned, then why recommend this brand to others? Without ongoing access to good customer service through the user base (forums), my licenses are now pretty much useless. And these software titles from Devon, are not cheap.

I'm frustrated by DT's built-in editors. With options for RTF, HTML, Markdown, etc., I'm surprised that I can't really do basic outlining without a lot of work. Little things like indent/outdent, make list / make not-a-list, and simple Headline-type styles. It seems like a lot of people use DT just to organize files, which is great, but a simple editor, one even as simple as OneNote's would be great - and, in 2017, not unexpected. Or, configure it to use an external editor (or several) to quickly create pages, like DP does, but with the power of a "real" editor. I'd be happy to learn that all this is there and I'm just using it wrong and/or don't know about certain features...

This app reminds me of Corel Painter... there is a lot of power in the app, but it is hidden behind a poor and confusing user interface. It is in serious need of a redesign and simplification, while still keeping the search and organization power. It seems like they haven't really released a major update to the app in a while, and if so it's all been backend stuff without thinking about how that backend stuff is interacted with on the front end. DEVON, you've got good software here. Please REthink it.

Uh...I'm not sure how I feel about this app... No doubt it's powerful and very classic. But it also very "old" in many ways. I planned to import a lot of files into it. Then I tried to use a rename tool to do some batch rename works, the files were renamed but devonthink couldn't locate them...it just reported the files are missing, but it won't show the files which are still in the library just with a different name!

The UI shows how much the developers really care about their app - not much! Basically they have a nice neuronal network algorithm that lets them classify things. All their apps are built upon that feature (which is nice) but lack in other aspects. Wish they would spend some money on fixing their software (not just the UI/UX) especially sync, iOS app, fixing broken things...

I use DEVONthink Pro Office. Have done for years in combination with a Fujitsu ScanSnap S510M. All still running well on my new iMac5K. An amazingly fast way to manage huge quantities of post and pdf's images into sorted databases using its included OCR. Just a phenomenally useful piece of software. My advice is buy it and a compatible scanner and get the upgrade and become paperless. Mind boggling powerful app. Hats off to the developers I say.

A bargain at twice the price, and now it's deeply discounted! My only complaints about DEVONthink in general are the mobile app sucks and the interface could benefit from a refresh. The engine that powers this software is fantastic and while it can easily overwhelm you with options, that's the sort of flexibility you benefit from later. Great support, which has been very responsive and hands-on with the half-dozen cases I've opened with them over the years.

This app is one of my favorites. Had it also at a good price in a bundle. Doing a mastership and have a lot of reading to do, in mixed formats (web pages, Word, pdf,...) and documents to create. Can view (almost all of) them all in one single app, saves a lot of time. I have a few questions or feature requests. For example, when a bring a document in a db, it makes a copy of it so I have to care if I edit the original document or the copy in the db. So I will often delete the original so I don't mess with versions. Is it possible to bring only alias in the db ? or replace original with an alias to the db version ? Love also being able to outline words in a scanned pdf. Some Word documents don't show and some do. Will you add more file formats support (FileMaker for example)? Thank you.

Excellent software that is a boon for academics with lots of reference documents. Very easy to import documents, but (and this is key) NO PROPRIETARY DATABASE that locks your data in. Exports to finder very easily. The program, especially the current version, is very stable. Mac to mac syncing is robust and I have had no problems syncing databases with hundreds of pdf's. Tons of other features under the hood, including importing from Evernote, Bookends etc, robust Applescript support and very easy to use browser extensions to clip content from the web. The developers are very responsive and have consistently added features without charging for each new version. I am not an ipad user (I need the extra functionality of a laptop) so I cannot comment on the companion ipad app. All in all, one of the best programs I own, and one that I use every day.

I really hate this program. I believe it I would ever teach creating software, I would use DevonThink as an example of how not to do. I'm following development of DevonThink since years and the biggest question I have is why there is nobody yet to write a normal alternative to this monster? There are hundreds of features, that are barely useable due to the terrible interface, others barely work due to the terrible implementation. Yes, there are users, that find it OK to suffer in order to see this ugly bear dancing. The software is so bad, it's hard to tell what could it be used for. Note taking? There are zillion other note taking apps which offer useable interface, from Evernote to Onenote and so on. Sorting? The functionality is very limited, inconsistent and unpredictable. Searching? The internal structure of even newly created "data base" is stupid organised, that, multiplied to the awful UI you can't find even the data you've imported a second ago. Syncing is a joke - it "syncs" to Dropbox by simply copy-paste everything you have. Each time. Editing, marking, managing data is done by using hundred of different, inconsistent, poorly designed and poorly implemented forms and scripts. Generally, working with DevonThink - it's like working with multiple SAP forms, thrown together by a bunch of teenagers in computer club. The only good thing DevonThink has - auto classification and auto suggestion. As in my opinion, DevonThink belongs to the one and only place: trash can.

It's a good app and I use it but it's lacking one important feature and has one annoying UI element which I can't stand. The feature I want is simple password security, a timed lockout of the app when I get up to eat dinner and forget to hide it from my family's prying eyes. I don't need encryption just a simple cover for my work I can set to a timer such as 3 minutes. The UI element I really don't like is the Take Note window which is transparent black. This is horribly difficult to read and type in and serves no actual purpose except to look ugly. Please, Mr. Developer redesign the Take Note window to be a nice looking, well formatted standard grey window. Thanks!

I've used DevonThink Pro for some years now. I used to use it as a general chaos-information bucket. Really, for me, it was a bit unwieldy. Also the slow and not-useful iOS app discouraged me. In fact, I stopped using DTP altogether for a while. But I was just assessing various solutions for a very specific information wrangling scenario. I'm a fine art photographer, and I needed a way to deal with the relationship between image -> file instances -> print instances. It was a complicated thing to try to set up in a relational database (it's a complex set of relationships). It turns out it was relatively easy to do in DTP, and I'm so far extremely happy with the result. I think this is why academic researchers like it so much -- it is potentially extremely wonderful and flexible for focused large scale tasks. I'm back in the Devonthink Pro camp, and I might even start using it for other things again. But definitely not for the big general information dump or anything that needs to sync to iOS.

Once again, Devon Technologies has put out a minor release that many, many vendors would have tagged as "major" and charged for an upgrade -- this time, adding a new note type, Markdown capability, and Mavericks tagging. I bought this package shortly before 2.0 came out, when the developer was offering a 2.0 upgrade for any buyers of 1.x after that date. That was five years ago; the 2.0 release was in 2008. And several times now, the Devon people have put out some pretty big new features (especially on the Pro Office package, which I don't have), without upping the major release number. If you're going to spend anything more than $10 or $20 on a piece of organizational/research software, it's nice to know that that "planned obsolescence" is not the developer's strategy. Aside from that, it's just really good software. I tried a bunch of these products that make information capture and organization easy. Yojimbo's capture is probably easier, but not by very much if you use DevonThink's Sorter. DevonThink can also capture from a lot of different places in your workflow -- browser extension, print-to-PDF dialogue, global Inbox in your Finder, all mean you can capture any time the thought comes to you. But none of the other information managers out there provide you with anything like the kinds of tools you get from DevonThink for whipping your information into shape once you've captured it. Seriously, there's just no contest. There's an AI for suggesting cross-references and filing/tagging locations, you can auto-file all the stuff in your inbox if you've learned to trust that AI, you can annotate and edit PDFs, HTML, and Rich Text... It's just flat sick, is what it is. And, since it's basically morally wrong to keep a guy's stuff in a proprietary database with no way out (and there are information managers that do this), you can export to plain old files-and-folders that mimic your groups/tags, and navigate them through the Finder.

Stable, Fully featured, well thought out, VERY powerful,well supported. Probably the best file/ document organisation tool available for the Mac. I wavered for a very long time before purchasing this app (and have tried most of its competitors). It seems that you do get what you pay for. There are many cheaper products out there but none can match DevonThink in features and performance in my opinion.

As an organizational and archival tool, DevonThink Pro would be a fantastic application, if it would work right. But, several problems prevent it from being that. Capturing a page from a web-browser (whether as Text, Webarchive, or PDF) is useless, because, except for tags and folders designated as favorite, not all paths in the database are available from the save panel. The same issue is encountered when saving a page via the scripts from the script folder. Equally frustrating is it's inability to make hyperlinks in a page, because, again, not all paths are available. This was true in Leopard, and it continues to be true in Snow Leopard. I have for a long time refrained from rating DTP because I really like what DTP does, waiting update after update to see this resolved, but time is up. I will revise my rating as the developer corrects the problem.

Clicked the wrong button & lost a longer review. I've tried some of the other suggestions here, but the other apps mentioned don't all do what DevonThink does. DevonThink is a very good piece of software if you have a little dedication in the beginning of re-organizing your sock drawer or chaos bin. That's the hardest part of getting organized. DevonThink can help with that. Start tagging data & categorizing & it only gets easier to rearrange as the databas(es) grow. To make this work best, you need to stay with organizing your data until some structure becomes evident that works for you. If you have that capacity, this is a slick application.

If you seriously want to go paperless or as much paperless as possible, you need a software of that kind! DEVONthink Pro Office is the most feature rich of it's kind. There are no bugs what's or ever only improvements from time to time. So I guess it's one thing to be on top, but another to stay there! I'm happy to know that the future will bring me lots of satisfaction with this software and my money was well spend on this (four years ago!!). Thank you for the great work on this software that I can rely on.

A long time ago, I did a review of DT Personal... which I tried to use for taking notes on the fly, manage all my documents with tags and lots of things that I thought were what the app was supposed to do. I didn't like it and found the app to be too heavy, ugly and awful. A bundle allowed me to upgrade to DevonThink Pro. I gave it a try, again. And used it for what is is for: putting information in a database. But information related to my projects (not everything on my hard drive like I was doing before): research results, leads, ideas... To long to describe everything you can do with this app. Just a piece of advice: don't try to use it to replace the finder. Use it as a tool that can gather all your data in a structured database. The longer you use it, the more it will contain information and the more it becomes useful. If you're searching the web a lot, just use DTPro with Devon Agent. It's a bomb. Some stuff I miss, though: the feature to record audio notes directly from Devonthink. And a writing interface that wouldn't ashame me when I show it to other people. Powerful app. But to handle with reason and focus.

Lev: quite a good retentive comment. The main point is why pay for something if you already have it. As to people spelling and grammar, with 1 in 3 people suffering from some form of dyslexia it dose not bother me as long as I am able to understand the gist of whats been said. To highlight such things as poor spelling and grammar just shows poor up bring and bad manners. Which is why when you look at the comments on your profile they are main bad. Maybe a little less time on your computer and a bit more time with people would teach you some basic interpersonal skills which you seem to be sadly lacking.
