Scrivener is very cool and mighty app. I used it for research and writing UX-related stuff (user interviews, personas, user stories, e.t.c.) It has lot of features and therefore a relativ complicated interface - but it's logical, predictable and self-explainable (unlike Devonthink). This software has a good spirit. I wish it long and successful life and all the best to dev team. The only thing I was really missing was a good clipping extension for Safari.

The software constantly crashes every time I try to import a couple of .PDFs. There is no use in such an unstable stuff.

Oh yeah, this one is a really terrible piece of software. I even got refund from Apple Store for it. Actually, the app is simply not working. At all. On Retina MacBook it opens in some incredible mode, as were all interface elements 2 times bigger, than they are and the controls are all hidden. It's actually hard to say what this program is good for, because I see no way of using it somehow at all - it's just all broken.

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.

Very nice app. I can't really say what's the magic behind this software (really good UI?), but 2Do has, somehow its own charisma and charm. I've tried all actual "to-do" apps, and though there are many good, I'd say "2Do" is the best of all. Best wishes to the developers & designers.

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.
