Excellent - IOS and Mac

Been using Keep It for some months now. Both Mac and IOS implementations are working well together.
Managing nearly 3000 pdf documents, most imported from existing file / folder structure set up on the Mac. More recently, many have been pulled from the web using Keep It, on either Mac or iPad.
The original (and growing) folder hierarchy helps to visualise and keep things structured for my needs; however I often search the whole ‘database’ using the “All Items” approach and distil down from there.
No real issues, each update seems to improve versatility or usability.
Communication with the developer was fast and efficient, solving an issue which was in fact nothing to do with the app, just my naivety wrt the update process?! Excellent so far.

Excellent Devon Think replacement

I was looking to completely replace the bloated behemoth Devon Think Pro and after a lot of searching and trial, Keep It came out on top. It is really well thought out and the IPad app is way better than DT, which I now see is a mess.
The list view navigation focus buttons are a neat idea. Also support is better. Keep It has much better rationalisation of text documents than DT, which again is a mess. Converting to Keep It’s native Notes format has cleaned up years of DT’s baffling system.
Migrating from DT to Keep It was a breeze.
And finally Keep It’s database is not proprietary. A big tick.

Reliable and smart

Been using on both my Mac and iPad for a while now, having upgraded from the old Together. KeepIt on the iPad is proving to be great for capturing and pulling together a variety of information and I have had no issues syncing with my laptop. Navigation and search once source information is in KeepIt is simple and effective. The interface is nice and clear. The few issues I have reported brought both timely response and fix.
