For me the best personal Knowledge Management app.
Desperately looking for something that provides similar functionality of DevonTHINK but available for Windows OR on the "cloud"
I agree with the posters saying that DEVONthink really shouldn't be categorized with note-taking applications, as it is more of a document management system. It seems to be for actually storing every type of document one might use for a project and making it easily searchable and retrievable. While it does share some aspects, it seems like a very different type of application.
Being that it is quite different than a note-taking application, I came here looking to find a Windows alternative to this robust program. I'm quite disappointed it is Mac-only, and I would appreciate if anyone knows of a true alternative to this type of program.
It's the most intelligent document management system.
It shows up as an alternative to Eaglefiler; that program is quite analogous to DevonThink. Better, IMHO.
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.
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.
