Reinvented Software has a replacement for it’s Together content management desktop software.  Keep It—now in beta.  Features new to Keep It vs. Together:

$19.99 upgrade for Together v3 licensees.  Higher for new licenses.  An iOS app also in beta.  Can sync an entire database via iCloud.

I don’t see anything significant—but for content management CRIMPers it might be interesting.

Isn’t this the second re-branding of Together? I can’t remember its original name, although I have a feeling it was, like Keep It, “double-barrelled”. (Was it Keep It Together?)

There was a period for me when for some reason I was not happy with DevonThink (possibly when DTTG 1 was not working as billed), and I switched to Together. It seemed a reasonable alternative, if one did not require DT Pro Office’s bells and whistles or its solid performance with very large quantities of data, or if one balked at its cost.

You have a good memory.  It was KIT (Keep It Together) before it was Together.

After playing with this new incarnation I have to say it’s just a rebranding.  The main change is iCloud sync and not worth the price of admission.  The rest is the same old Together, as far as I can tell.

Paul,

Thanks for bringing this to our attention.

I don’t dispute the general accuracy of your comment about Keep It just being a rebranding of Together, but I think the developer has shifted the focus of the app. Where Together was a document manager first and a note manager second, I feel as if Keep It is a note manager first. It just feels that the interface has been streamlined for note taking and managing. It has a clean folder structure in addition to other ways of organizing notes. It has a nice pop up editing window which is a pleasure to write in. If I decide to purchase it, in my mind I won’t be upgrading from Together, but just buying a whole new note-taking app for $20.

Good point.  I used Together exclusively before I migrated to DEVONthink, maybe 9 years ago, and thereafter mainly to keep up to date my old libraries—which I migrated to Keep It.  These were about 50/50 original documents / imported documents.  It’s the documents I’ve maintained and expanded or edited over the years. 

So though I’ve had regular experience with notes in Together 2 and 3, I haven’t noticed note-centricity in Keep It—will take a deeper look.  The new “Share” features for note collaboration is interesting but I’ve not tested it.  I wonder if the sharee (whatever the person one shares with is called) has to have a fully-paid up license to the app or not.
