DEVONthink looks to be a good possible replacement for Evernote. One function that Evernote has not mentioned so far...maybe the final the ability to set reminders for items (notes) in DEVONthink.


Todd Olthoff

Thanks for the comment! Yes that can be done with the scripts found in Devonthink. I hope to be able to add that into the next show as a mention. Thanks for the reminder:).

Hi, I'm afraid there's some problems downloading the videos. I've tried several times and I failed every time.


Hi Jose, we've had no other reports so it may have been a local problem that is now hopefully resolved. If not, please log a call via [email protected]

Michael Carroll

Nice tutorial. Would love to see Todd demonstrate a way to create a new item (like a chronology or timeline) that links back to other documents and things in the database.


Todd Olthoff

Thanks for the comment Michal! Yes I will be covering the types of Documents you can set up in Devonthink and how to link files together like a wiki which will hopefully cover what you are looking for. Thanks again and have a great week!

Sven Kielhorn

Will you also teach how to set up sync among iOS and MacOS?


Todd Olthoff

Thanks for the comment Sven! Yes I will be covering how to set up sync across your devices and some other ways to access your data remotely!
