What you need to know
- DEVONthink is a tool for saving anything and then organizing and searching it.
- The app received a big update today.
- Users can now enjoy syntax highlighting and more.
DEVONthink is arguably the "everything bucket" Mac app that started it all. Long before Evernote arrived, people were using DEVONthink to store just about anything and then search for it later. The app's come a long way in recent years and today it took another jump forward with version 3.5.
The update, free to existing users, adds a ton of new features with syntax highlighting likely one that will grab a lot of attention. DEVONthink 3.5 also gains improved OCR technology to make everything nice and searchable, too.
Annotations made on PDF documents can now be searched, with other improvements coming alongside the requisite bug fixes and performance improvements.
Version 3.5 also makes annotations of PDF documents or Skim PDF packages searchable and improves the support for Scrivener, Postbox, and other third-party apps. The clutter-free web capture has been updated, too, for better compatibility to many websites. Databases are now automatically verified when they were not closed properly before. DEVONthink presents informative messages, warnings, or errors in a log that users can now quickly summon via a new toolbar button. A visual indicator notifies about new messages.
You can get a full rundown of all of the DEVONthink 3.5 changes over in the announcement blog post. There's plenty to get your teeth into!
Existing DEVONthink users can get the update from the in-app update mechanism, while those looking to take it for a spin can download it from the website. There's a handy trial available if you want to take it for a spin, too.
