Focus on your work and let DEVONthink remember all the details. Collect and organize your documents, make notes, annotate PDFs. DEVONthink To Go is the mobile document management solution for iPad and iPhone. Sync your data privately and securely between your Macs, iPads, and iPhones. App-wide security (including Face ID) keeps your private data private.


DEVONthink To Go 3.0 has been greatly improved over version 2.x. It brings new features including support for multiple windows and the pointer on iPadOS, dark mode, and context menus. OCR converts scans to searchable PDFs on your device, Shortcuts actions let you automate everyday tasks and integrate DEVONthink To Go with the rest of your iOS ecosystem. Open documents in other apps directly from the "Share" sheet. Version 3.0 supports Mac-style document annotations and ratings, unifies inboxes, tags, and trash groups like on the Mac, and adds new global smart groups.

A new iCloud sync based on CloudKit is much faster and more reliable than the previous iCloud approach (requires DEVONthink for Mac 3.6.2 or later). Other improvements include search returning first results faster and new settings to personalize DEVONthink To Go to your needs.

What’s New

Version 3.0.3

If possible, ghost documents are silently restored from version 2. The update also brings fixes for OCR and shows previews again for shallowly synchronized documents.

This is my killer app that enables my workflow

V3 is much faster with the iCloud sync. I use it to capture emails that require action and also websites that I need to refer to later. I use Scanner Pro to share receipts to DEVONthink and do the inbox processing on the Mac. I can then add DEVONthink links in my task manager to bring up files items or groups right from the task on either iOS or macOS. This has been a complete game changer for me since 2017.

Questioned the price — Glad I Upgraded

I am long time DT user on my Mac and iOS devices. After the initial investment of purchasing DT Server($499) for my Mac and DTTG ($4.99)for my other devices initially I was taken aback looking at the price for this upgrade. I see there is a discount for DTTG2 users but you should offer a further discount for those who support your desktop environment as well.

However, I’m glad I made the purchase. Local sync is soooo much more stable (not as many time outs or hangs during syncing) and it’s super fast. It’s an excellent upgrade from DTTG2. Dark mode looks excellent and the entire app is more fluid.

In the future please consider an additional discount when having a major upgrade for those who support you on all platforms.

Don’t upgrade yet

This release is so buggy. CloudKit sync is a piece of junk. The developers really should have waited to release this instead of making all of us be their Beta Testers. The sad part is their forums are full of comments from their devs like “we can’t replicate the issue you are experience” yet there are hundreds of people saying they are getting CloudKit errors and invalid encryption key errors. Really worrisome, but I have hope that they fix things soon. It kind of reminds me when they released devonthink 3 for the Mac. There were a bunch of features missing from version 2, finally after about 6 months everything was back to normal. It has gotten slightly better since then.

Developer Response ,

Apple’s CloudKit is throttling upload speeds under high usage and throws these error 503s. That behavior wasn’t documented, unfortunately. Reducing the number of max. connections helps for the initial upload.
