Thi has writer been using DevonTech software for many years, starting with when it was just DevonThink. And I don't recall ever having a crash, all their apps are completely dependable—and each, now, has their own use. So versatile, and the AI cannot be beat!

You can index your files and folders—or import into the database. And a hundred more features well worth exploring. Highly recommended!

Devonthink should have been exactly what I wanted...
However, I can't get used to its PC-like aging interface, its not-so-fast operations, its lack of integration with everything on my Mac.
It's a big repository that can do everything, but with average rating on everything.
Guess I'll have to find an alternative. For me, definitely not worth the price...

I bought this, and I'm disappointed. From the glowing reviews I've seen everywhere, I expected devonthink's tagging system to be polished, but right now it feels slapped-on and half-baked.

If tagging is important to you, you should look at Eaglefiler or Together.

The developer also has a history of bad UI design, which is most probably related to the terrible way that the user must interface with the tagging system.

Please, devontechnologies, get a UI advisor! Just because you are good at programming doesn't mean you are also good at interface design.

That said, its search feature is the most advanced and powerful among its competitors. If searching is more important to you than tagging, devonthink is the product.

It's very good, but UGH! Why does it save my data in ~/Library/Application Support?? How annoying!

I want to be able to choose where to save my data. Or, at least, it should save its data in the Documents folder. I only ever do selective backups, and its terribly annoying to have to hunt all over the filesystem for important files to backup. Imagine if all apps did that!

For now, I moved the Devonthink folder to Documents and I use a symbolic link in Application Support.

you can also do a hard link with:
ln /filepath/filetolink /destinationfilepath/
That way DevonThink is happy and so are you.

I'd just like to add for those reading this now (2013) that all one has to do is close the database (that's important), move it wherever you like, clear out the Open Recently menu, and you're good to go. :)

Powerful personal document management system, easily expandable to suit your home business needs. In fact, I upgraded to the Pro Office edition with scan support - for my Fujitsu ScanSnap S1300, which I bought as it is directly supported by DEVONthink.

You can finally just load up all your documents, receipts, letters and let ScanSnap and DEVONthink do the work for you.

However - you need to work very hard to initially use and setup; most of it is trying to work our your personal workflow - getting used to NOT rely on paper documents. If there is one thing I would like DEVONthink to improve on is security - encryption and work out some way to better synchronise and utilise that crappy MobileMe iDisk. (really, it should be MobileMe that needs the fixing)

If you need just one repository for all your information and have in mind to index your clutter of documents in sound and simple system: DEVONthink PE is just right for you.

DT is a living place for my data – and not a data graveyard.

Is version 2.0 a paid upgrade from version 1.9.16 (which is listed as a legacy version on their web site)?
