Last day for 50% Discount on 2Do — 5 March, 2018

With all the attention being lavished on Things 3, it's easy to forget there are other excellent task managers out there. One such app is the wonderfully powerful, and endlessly customisable 2Do. In my humble opinion, 2Do is one of the highlights in the Setapp collection, but it’s also available as a standalone purchase via the App Store. If you have been thinking of picking up a copy, there is no time like the present. The developer has been running a sale, which ends today.

Available on the App Store, for iOS (Universal) and macOS

DEVONthink Deals for Black Friday

I’m sitting on a promise to write up DEVONthink to GO in more detail for iPad only users. I have every intention of getting to that in the next couple of days. In the meantime, this is a heads up on the impending Black Friday promotion by DEVON technologies. They write:

Along with the holiday feasting, another tradition is Black Friday shopping. Getting up at 3 a.m. to go stand in line outside your favorite retailer, rushing en masse into the store the moment it opens, being tackled by someone's grandma as you try to get the best gifts of the season.

We've made it easy for you to get a shiny new copy of DEVONthink, DEVONthink To Go (in the App Store), DEVONagent, DEVONsphere, and DEVONnote, all without having to get out of bed or brave the roads and crowds.

This is a world-wide offer starting on Thursday, Nov 23rd, 2017, at 6 p.m. CET so that you can take advantage of it regardless whether you live in New Zealand or Hawaii. The offer will close on Tuesday, Nov 28th, at 9 a.m. CET. This promotion cannot be combined with other discounts, e.g. the students & educators discount

Given the discounts can’t be combined with the education discount , it works out to be the same price for a lot of readers of this site. But, not everybody here is institutionalised. Stay tuned for those details on the iOS app.

Apple Giving Away Free Beats Headphones with Education Discount

Apple is sweetening the pot a little this year for anyone eligible for the education discount, in the UK or US. That means — in their own words — current and newly accepted college students and their parents, as well as faculty, staff, and homeschool teachers of all grade levels. Basically, if you buy a Mac or an iPad Pro directly from Apple, you will get a pair of Beats Wireless earbuds, or headphones [^Depending on what you buy].
