Ratings and Reviews
I am mystified by this product but I am finding it very useful.
First I have to let everyone know that I am a devoted user of every product they have. They have served me well and were one of the principal reasons I switched from Microsoft machines to Apple machines. The products are complex but provide such depth that I find myself trying more and more new things with them to accomplish my tasks and goals. So, when the new Devonsphere Express product appeared I purchased it immediately although I could not see any real use for it. Then after examing it, I thought it was just another version of Spotlightk--and who needs that? But after all those disclaimers I am writing this to say, try the product. I tried it and every time I have fired it up I found not one but multiples of multiples of things I did not know existed on my computer or in my mind. If you live with ideas as a part of your life, get this product.
Fantastic search resource for the Mac!
After figuring out how to access it (clicked on a word, chose Services, then DEVONsphere Express), it’s proving to be very useful for finding all sorts of info (ie, documents, e-mails, epubs, pdf’s, etc.) hidden deep within my laptop. Also discovered ability to add new search locations such as Dropbox, increasing it’s scope. Haven’t quite figured out how to search iBooks or Photos, although I would love that capacity. Like their other app, DEVONagent Express, it also pulls up web searches along with your device searches, all in one place. And it searches very effectively within your e-mails. Highly recommend DEVONsphere Express!
Useful but limited search tool
Devonsphere is a useful but limited search tool.
It can search pdf and epub files using multiple alphabets. It doesn't search mobi or azw files, and doesn't have separate preferences to include epub vs. mobi vs. rtf vs. odt.
And it doesn't index more than aboout 100 pages of each book, so if you know a few of your reference books mention someone-- but don't remember which books-- it's likely to miss them.
It relies on exact matches or asterisks, instead of accepting truncated search terms by default.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
