DEVONthink (DT) and Evernote (EN) I made the below post in the "Power User..." thread, but I think it is better to continue the discussion here, in its own thread. First, let me say that DT is currently available ONLY for Mac and iOS users. Like ScottLougheed posted, I doubt that DT can, or will, completely replace Evernote. But for Mac users, it offers many advantages and features in a PIM tool that we have been requesting from Evernote for years. IMO, DT offers at least 3 big advantages: Security: It is much more secure since none of the data has to be put in the Cloud. And even if you choose to sync it using Dropbox, DT offers the "best consumer-level security option available: zero-knowledge 256-bit encryption" [quote from GM] Scalability: It is very scalable to large databases. Lack of scalability is one of Evernotes major issues right now. See DEVONthink — Second Impression and some Tips Customizability: DT is highly customizable. It seems that they have taken the opposite approach of Evernote, offering the user a wide array of preferences and customizations.OTOH, Evernote offers ease of use, sync across almost all platforms, and the best web clipper, bar none. So, hopefully here we can learn more about DT, and how to strike the right balance between Evernote and DT. Here's a great post by GrumpyMonkey, with a link to his DT Getting Starting blog, which is excellent:
I would like to place the notes that I take at my office to my home computer. I have a mac and use devonthink at home. When I drag and drop an evernote document to devonthink, all it transfers is the URL to the document. I would like to have the actual pdf file since the url may eventualy get erased. Will the premium version allow this? TIA
