Short description:
Info manager, freeform database, notepad, scrapbook & outliner

Long description:
DEVONthink is the Mac incarnation of the real paperless office. It's a
notepad, outliner, scrapbook manager, information manager, freeform
database, archive, image database and bookmark manager - your personal
Èsupplementary brainÇ. DEVONthink is capable of intelligently storing
and organising all types of data like plain and text files, HTML, XML,
PDF documents and images. Put in whatever you want, organise it, let
DEVONthink search for it.

Key features:
- Stores whatever you like, from texts, images, PDF, HTML and XML to
- Is able to index contents only instead of storing them in the database
- Integrated browser based on Apple's WebKit (ÈSafari EngineÇ)
- Supports dynamic Wiki-style links and static cross links
- Helps you to sort in new stuff (auto-classify, see-also, keywords)
- Organises your stuff with a built-in, simple outliner
- Easy-to-use Finder-like user interface
- Advanced text editing including rulers, highlighting and realtime
word count
- Lightning-fast, intelligent search function
- Built to seamlessly integrate with Mac OS X

What's unique:
- Captures contents from the built-in browser
- Plays Quicktime movies and sound files
- Works with much more file formats than all alternatives
- Imports and exports huge amounts of data extremely fast
- Works flawlessly with huge databases (>300 MB)
- Does not need indexing but searches faster than the competition
- Stays highly performant even with big databases, i.e. double the size
of the database does not mean half the performance
