iThoughts for iOS has a nice update this week that adds support for document providers. Now I can store my planning maps inside DEVONthink along with the rest of my project data and still open them from within iThoughts for editing.
I like the Smart Folder I have on my Mac to load all of my iThoughts maps at once. It's very convenient to browse all of my maps.
But I can create a similar folder in DEVONthink for Mac.
When I'm opening documents using DEVONthink as a document provider, I rely on the quick search to find all of the iThoughts files within a database.
Another great new feature in iThoughts is the quick capture extension. I have an "ideas" map that I like to capture quick thoughts or plans to. iThoughts provides a single configuration item named "Quick Thoughts Map" where I set the path to the preferred capture map and node. Then from a share sheet in iOS I can send just about anything into the map. Unfortunately, because of iOS limitations, I can not use a map in DEVONthink for the quick capture feature.
I use iThoughts less now that I have DEVONthink on iOS, but it still satisfies an intellectual itch for me. I like the flow of quickly mapping ideas with relationships in a context map. These new improvements might bring me back a bit more.
My good friend and amazing designer Erik Hess did something. He made a sticker pack just because he loves Tomcats. I think they are beautiful. I'd imagine if you like aircraft, this would be right up your alley. It's two bucks which like 1/19,000,000 of ...
In the United States we have few privacy protections. We now have fewer than we had 6 months ago. We represent little more than a pool of cash to be exploited. My personal strategy is to make the collection of my data cost as much as possible because I like ...
Is this it then? Is this the last gasp of independent blogging as everyone moves to micro transactions of half considered thoughts? Will Tweets eat Wordpress? It sure seems like the indie blogs are thinned down to a small collection of ideas and opinions. Worse, it feels like the only ...
I sure do like Slack. It's a hugely convenient service that I actually pay for.1 Many of my best friends are on Slack and it's a continuous source of enjoyment and intelligent discussions for me. But I use it less now because I can't trust its ...
I first met Bill DeVille through the DEVONthink forums many years ago. He was always generous with his time and even tempered with his responses. He made the experience and product better. So much so, that DevonTech hired him which instantly made me their fan.
From the DevonTech website:
“The Workflow app was selected for an Apple Design Award in 2015 because of its outstanding use of iOS accessibility features, in particular an ...
I simply can't stop watching this video of the PS4 game Everything.
From Frederic Filloux's Monday Note:
The Fake News phenomenon is like a bio-engineered plague: it spreads to all countries as specialized outlets make it their business to churn false information on an industrial scale. It hits democracies at a moment when professional media see their business models challenged from ...
This story by Brian Krebs is an amazing breakdown of an iCloud phishing ring. It not only provides a lot of detail about the thinking behind these phishing services (and all those phishing emails you get) but it's a study in human nature too:
This is where the story ...
