It shows up as an alternative to Eaglefiler; that program is quite analogous to DevonThink. Better, IMHO.

about DEVONthink Jun 2011

I agree with paulhenrys, this is not a simple note taking application. Unsure if this is the cause, but since installing the Pro Office version my system now suffers from constant spinning beach ball syndrome. Nice organization and information management tool, but I suspect it is causing some tremendous system-wide slowdown.

about DEVONthink Jun 2011

All the alternatives here are "note taking" applications. That doesn't really describe what DEVONthink is. It's a data-driven writing and research tool that is designed for large, robust writing projects: novels, research reports, theses, etc. It has powerful relational search capabilities. You need to start this list over again.
