DEVONthink is one of the most powerful database applications made for the Mac. In fact, some people have said this one application makes it worth getting a Mac just to run it!

In this introductory episode, Todd Olthoff takes us through all of the core features of DEVONthink Pro Office.

In this first of three screencasts, Todd will look at the initial set up, explore the user interface, and show the many types of files DEVONthink works with and the various ways to get your information into DEVONthink.

Although this tutorial features DEVONthink Pro Office, many of the features are also included in the other version of DEVONthink.

The other screencasts in the DEVONthink series will be published in December and January.
