Ah rats! I had the nasty feeling somebody - and in fact, here we have several somebodies - would tell me to revisit DevonThink. I’ve already collected so many interesting information management tools that I have, yes, I confess it! been turning a blind eye to DevonThink, which is not exactly cheap.

I do have NoteSuite, and have tried awfully hard to like it. But for some reason, it’s really annoying. You’re right, however: it is one of the few relatively powerful note managers that has a direct clipping service and an iOS client, plus a reasonably good (albeit not great) search function. Having said that, I’m quite pleased with the neat way Scrivener handles web capture. It’s a two-step process, but that has the advantage of causing one to pause and ask ‘do I really need this web page?’

Okay. I admit, DevonThink does have a demo/trial version. I’ll have to play… C-R-I-M-P-!!!
