A document organizer.

Overview

doo is the one app for documents. It lets users access all their documents, wherever they keep them, and automatically generates intelligent tags to help users find any document in seconds.

The cloud-based solution with native apps is currently available for OS X and Windows 8. Apps for Android and iOS are coming soon. Further Windows versions are planned.

Users can connect their local document folders on their devices as well as online services such as Dropbox, Google Drive, and their email accounts. doo will automatically generate intelligent tags. The selective sync allows users to define which of their documents to manage locally, and which to back up and sync to other devices via the optional doo Cloud.

The seamless integration with scanners of leading manufacturers, as well as with smartphones and cameras, lets users scan documents and import pictures of documents straight into the app: a quick and effective start into a paperless life.

doo organizes every document in a user’s life, private or business.

Doo phones home to Google Analytics. The only reason to do so to my knowledge is to allow Google surveillance of my computer behavior. If your app is going to surveil my computer use, then ASK MY PERMISSION FIRST, DAMMIT. I have used my reverse firewall Little Snitch to deny Doo access to Google Analytics forever. I suggest other folks with reverse firewalls consider doing the same.

Just had an email from the company saying... "It is with a heavy heart we have to announce that “doo – the document app” will be shutting down on Monday, March 17, 2014."

Although not a user I'm still sad to hear popular and useful apps going under. I wish the Doo team future successes.

Well, I screwed up. I had doo for a long time and uninstalled it when I heard it was going away. However, I didn't consider that I have some docs still on my Mac. Is there any way you can post the last releases for Mac and Windows so that we can install? Thanks.

@ Tonycr: Bummer. However, as long as you have your files stored locally, there might be hop. Go to this page and submit a support request: https://support.doo.net/hc/en-us/requests/new an see if they'll send you a copy. Since it's been available on on the App Store, I don't think there's any other avenue open to you.

Spelling corrections on last post, "hop" should be "hope". "an" should be "and". "on on" should be "on". Sheesh, Time for more coffee.

@prince_isaac Thanks for the reply. I wasn't too awake when I wrote it either. The documents are local and they are all in directories as the usual files. All is OK.

Although this only failed me with respect to one problem, Mindplay hit the nail on the head. Do you really need a collector that links to a collector? I already have Evernote. The one thing I had an issue with was I was not able to change, add, or otherwise modify my local folder. Irritating.

So you want me to collect Evernote notes inside doo?!? Why should one do that? To collect a collector? It’s funny, Evernote’s icon is the only one grayed out on their website. Doo? Doh!! http://t.co/f2MdbI0lH4

The latest versions are hard to rate due to their extrem instability. Actually, I don't even manage to get this app running - though being downloaded and installed from the App Store to the 10.9 on a very capable machine. The app is so broken, that it even doesn't manage to send crash reports (as this feature is also totally broken). There is nothing to rate, the software doesn't exist.

Overall quite stable, but it's sorting is very hard to use (when possible at all) - a traditional spread-sheet like columns sorting would help much more. And the tagging is, similar to the first version, complicated and over-authomated. Generally, "doo" is an interesting experiment, but not really useful.

Ok I am really liking this program. Adding documents has been a breeze, syncing has worked well (only used twice) and the UI is nice. I have not had one crash and all is relatively easy to figure out…some documentation or a forum would be helpful. Just got it set up on my iPad as well and syncs went very well. I have a couple questions/concerns dev if you happen to be monitoring. 1. Is there a way to create a hierarical organization (folders) on the IOS version like the desktop version. Or at least link to each folder via tag? Here is what I mean. I connect my folders and bring files I have sorted on my drive indexed by doo. However, once I link the folders (3 or 4) I can open docs by folder so when I search within doo I am searching within a specific folder when on the desktop . On the IOS I just get a bunch of files regurgitated which requires me to sort through unrelated documents to find the file I need. I am aware of tags etc, but am not ready to review and verify tagging on each document prior to use. 2. Please create a forum on your site so users can share and learn without having to submit a formal request to support with each question. I have dealt with the phone home issues using Little Snitch without any problems so far. I have been a long time Devonthink user and as good as Devonthink is doo is just easier to use and the interface is so much better. Not sure i will not use Devonthink going forward but doo has taken it's place for right now.

The bring problem is it is sloooow indexing, time line areas good leap is much faster does not create huge index file reloads much faster can search for any file the system can see also has time based sections etc.

I downloaded this and ran it for about 10 days. Yes, I'm looking for an alternative to DevonThink that's easier on the eyes - doesn't have to match all the features, but come close would be good. Well this is certainly a better looking app, no doubt about it. I threw a folder with some 500 pdfs in it and a DevonThink db, as it happens, and left it overnight. I came back and all the indexing etc was done. But it was still hammering the processor. Removed the DevonThink db and that problem was solved. The good news: the searching includes find by content. So, stick in your terms and it'll show you which of the 500 pdfs have that terms. Downside, it won't show you where in the pdfs the term occurs, so then you need to open each one and search within it, in turn. DevonThink will show you the instances, and also rate them by relevance. So, if you're in a research or academic setting this doesn't really come close. However, if you're not, then you might have a winner here. And the price is certainly right. One thing I didn't like were the built-in categories - companies and so on. It also writes keywords to the pdfs and doesn't tell you it's doing that - which means if you import the document to another app they all show up, and frankly, not useful. So, you get what you pay for. If your usage is light, then this is a good looking app that will index your files and offer limited search results. If not, then you can hope that one day Devon hire an interface designer… At least that's what I'm back to hoping for. It really is a very powerful very ugly beast... BTW. Had a couple of interactions with tech support during my trial and they were prompt and courteous.
