State of the Apps 2023

Cortex by Myke Hurley and CGP Grey is one of my favorite podcasts and I eagerly look forward to each episode. Every year, in the penultimate episode of the year, they talk about the most important apps and services they currently use. And then, the always worth reading Mere Civilian also recently wrote an article under that theme. Last year, I actually wanted to do the same, but then didn’t for reasons I don’t remember.

DEVONthink 3 Arbeitsbuch erschienen – Apfelpüree ➡️

Tja, manche versuchen noch, all die Neuerungen von Devonthink 3 zu erfassen, andere schreiben schon komplette Anleitungen. Da das sicher für den ein oder anderen interessant ist, möchte ich auf einen Post vom Apfelpüree Blog hinweisen: Die diversen Erweiterungen, Ergänzungen etc. lassen sich im Detail auf der Webseite von DEVONtechnologies nachlesen. All das ist in das neue Arbeitsbuch eingeflossen. Und weil das alles wirklich so umfassend ist, hat es etwas länger gedauert, das Arbeitsbuch neu zu schreiben (mit einfach nur anpassen war es nämlich nicht getan…). Zum Originalartikel
