Editors' Review

DevonThink Pro is your one-stop shop when it comes to organizing documents and files. This program features many smart tools and helpful support options, but learning how to use DevonThink and dealing with instability and can still be time consuming.

Pros

Exceptional tools: You are given so much power with DevonThink Pro as it can create smart databases and offers document management tools, such as saving Web pages directly to a folder and cloud syncing, boosting your overall efficiency. We found the included word processor to be full-featured, offering smart options like in-text links to other documents.

Excellent support: This application can be very hard to fully understand because of its many abilities, but the included tutorials mildly alleviate this difficulty by explaining DevonThink Pro in great detail. We visited the user forums and noted that the majority of threads were constantly active and offered more customized support based on users' goals.

Cons

Difficult usability: Our first tests of DevonThink Pro were rather exasperating because of the steep learning curve of this program. Those who are not fully familiar with computers in general will have a very hard time with this program despite the helpful support tools.

Mixed performance: Using this application was usually a smooth process, but we sometimes experienced freezing when handling large folders and files. Our documents also saved incorrectly on one occasion, causing us to lose most of the text we had written.

Bottom Line

DevonThink Pro for Mac, if used to its full potential, will completely streamline and revolutionize most people's experience with their computers. The vast amount of organizational features is great for those conducting research and gathering data, and we believe DevonThink Pro is the best choice for anyone in these fields.
