I used these 3 apps not often before, now I try to do some research more on how to adjust my workflow. I saw many people recommend zotero+devonthink, what’s the best highlights of this combination?
My purpose is:
- Read ebook(azw3, mobi or PDF) on Mac, Kindle, iPad and Boox note, and I need take notes and annotation on the device, so I need to sync back to the main library on my computer
- Can collect webpages
- Good organization is a must
- Good searching system
- I used Obsidian to take notes, so which app can communicate with obsidian better?
- I am not doing researching report, so I don’t need cite functionality now, but if have is better.
I like DT most of all, why not collect all ebooks, webpage, or even OB notes in DT? Any one can give me some advice for the workflow, BTW, I never use zotero for sync, if the zotero cons described wrong, please correct me.
Pros: DeDRM, Convert format, Calibre-server, Export to kindle, Free
Cons: Outdated UI/UX, Bad organization
Pros: Collect meta automatically, Good files organization, Cite, Plugins, Free
Sync not stable with iPad or other computer
Zotero for iPad can only sync full library(too occupied iPad space)
Pros: Searching engine, Fantastic organization, DTG3 is good sync with DT3
- Lack of metadata collection automatically thru ISBN or from online library for PDF file
- DT chrome extension is not perfect compared with other famous extensions.
