Coeur d’Alene, Idaho – DEVONtechnologies updates its desktop search assistant DEVONsphere Express with performance-related enhancements and AFPS support. It also works better with ePub books and searches PDF annotations and forms. The update to version 1.9.1 is free and recommended for all users.
DEVONsphere Express is DEVONtechnologies’ desktop search assistant. It runs as a menulet and indexes documents and other data in the background with the same AI-based technology used in DEVONthink and DEVONagent. Unlike traditional search utilities DEVONsphere Express is highly context-aware. It focuses automatically on what the user is working on and finds related documents, email messages, web pages, and more.
* Find other items related to what you’re working on
* Search like with Spotlight on steroids
* Context-aware, always focuses on what you do
* Runs as a menu extra, always available
What’s new in DEVONsphere Express 1.9.1: The update to version 1.9.1 brings many performance-related improvements, especially when indexing large numbers of documents. DEVONsphere Express also works better with the AFPS filesystem which Apple started using in macOS High Sierra. On the search side DEVONsphere Express 1.9.1 searches text in PDF annotations and forms, handles ePub books better, and improves finding related websites. Connections to Google and Bing are encrypted with SSL now. Finally, auto-completing search terms makes typing queries more comfortable. The update also enhances the overall reliability and uses less resources when building the index in the background.
“We’re all drowning in the information flood. DEVONsphere Express is one of our answers to the question how to tame it. Like Spotlight it searches your computer but it does more: it adds relations between documents, email messages, even websites. And being context-aware it doesn’t wait for you to enter a well-formulated query but proactively shows data that could be interesting” comments Eric Bohnisch-Volkmann, President of DEVONtechnologies.
* macOS Yosemite or later
