DEVONthink To Go 2.1 Adds Interoperability, Printing, and More
DEVONtechnologies updates DEVONthink’s iOS companion, DEVONthink To Go, with new features, workflow improvements, and bug fixes. Version 2.1 makes documents stored in its databases available to third-party apps so that users can open them externally, edit them, and save changes back without cumbersome roundtrips. Documents can be printed and 1Password integration facilitates entering credentials. The update is free and recommended for all users.
DEVONthink To Go 2.1 makes documents stored in its databases securely available to other apps. The so-called document provider extension allows users to navigate their databases from within third-party apps and open compatible documents. Edits made externally are saved directly back to DEVONthink To Go. The fast full-text search locates documents almost instantly without even leaving the host app.
Many productivity apps including Apple Pages, Numbers, and Keynote support document providers right away. Other apps can use them through the ‘Locations’ button of the iCloud Drive picker.
In addition, DEVONthink To Go 2.1 adds native printing of many document formats. Integrated 1Password support saves roundtrips to the 1Password app for web pages viewed inside the app as well as for setting up WebDAV sync locations. A settings option for the PDF scroll direction – vertically or horizontally – ends the fight over the ‘right’ direction by giving users the choice.
Version 2.1 also improves clipping data from other apps, e.g. from Safari. The enhanced Clip to DEVONthink share extension retrieves the title and a preview image for web pages as well as the original URL for articles clipped from the News app. Web archives created with Clip to DEVONthink or inside the app are now fully indexed and searchable too.
Finally, searching inside of PDFs again lists page titles and page numbers, Markdown documents support referenced images, and sheets are displayed more compact. The synchronization better avoids memory peaks and more efficiently handles situations where multiple sync locations synchronize the same sync stores. The update is free for existing users and highly recommended.
DEVONthink To Go 2.1 requires iOS 9.1 or later and is available for $14.99 USD through the iOS App Store in the Productivity category. Some features require a one-time in-app purchase.
