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 3.0.6

This maintenance release lets you open databases and smart groups in a new window on iPad and create new groups by grouping a single selected item. Markdown files generated by clipping now match those created by DEVONthink for Mac. The update also makes verifying and repairing databases smarter and more reliable, fixing, e.g., sync timeouts caused by integrity checks. It also fixes unnecessary notifications when previews couldn't be generated by Quick Look during a sync.

Worth every dime

I have used iPhones since 2007. This is my first review, because I think the developers of this app have earned it. I’ve used a he desktop version of DT for a little over a year with the previous DTTG version. This update is ROBUST. Far exceeded my expectations in terms of new features. I use this app everyday—its an integral part of my workflow.

My only wish, which might also be operator error, is to be able to create a new group DURING move-to or replicate-to. (I do go nuts navigating up a huge hierarchy then down a different one, only to discover I never created the group I intended to move or replicate an item to).

This is a five star app however—no question about it. The developers should be proud.

I have been using the Mac app for really long time, and I am not sure what I would do without. The iOS version struggled when it first came out, but now it is perfect. Although the developers don’t sell the Mac version on the App Store and they could have easily chosen to force users to a proprietary server, they chose to support iCloud sync and with CloudKit and allow users to also encrypt the databases on top of that. This commitment to protecting user privacy is very much appreciated. Their customer support is has been consistently top notch. I just hope the developers bring the Mac version to the Mac App Store as a subscription; I would also give it 5 stars.

Worthwhile update

I’m a long time user of DEVONthink and am really pleased with this update. The improvements to syncing are outstanding, easily 2x faster than the previous version.

The lightning fast search feature lets me find documents across several large databases easily and quickly on the go. Finding an old email, purchase record or meeting note quickly makes this a killer application.
