Managing My Reference Material with DEVONthink, OmniFocus and Shortcuts
Reference material is a big challenge, and I find if I don’t set myself up for success from the beginning, then I am most definitely doomed to fail. I found DEVONthink some years ago and really like it for managing my reference material.
