It’s really a limitation of the iOS, not DEVONthink To Go. As Bill mentioned, DEVONthink To Go has as much support for RTF documents as is possible on iOS. Plain text documents can be created in DEVONthink To Go, converted to RTF(D) on the Mac if needed, and synced back to DEVONthink To Go for read-only viewing. Writers needing a more rich writing environment on the iOS are still going to need to work in Documents To Go, Pages, etc., until Apple decides to add full RTF(D) support on iOS.
One nice feature of DEVONthink To Go is that it can send a Word document directly to Documents To Go where it can be edited, saved to a new document, and then Documents To Go can send it back to DEVONthink To Go. I assume that the same process will work with Pages documents but I haven’t tested that combination.
Syncing is W-Fi only. Whenever you are working in a region that does not have Wi-Fi available, you could always set up an ad-hoc, computer-to-computer network to sync. I’ve never needed to do this myself, but from reading what others have to say about it, apparently it is a pretty painless process. There is a tutorial on the Agile site that explains the steps-a Google search will turn up more info if needed.
sjk, thanks for the link. Unfortunately – private, no access. So I cannot comment.
Greg, my Mac has wireless capability, and it works nice when there is a network in the air. But, there is none in most places I live. (To be honest, I was quite happy about it and do not know whether I should wish to have networks around, but have to admit, they are comfortable).
Maria, if you’ll take another look at the link I posted, you’ll see that, while it is targeted to troubleshoot typical Wi-Fi networks, it has all the information to create your own ad-hoc network. No, you will not be able to access the Internet, check email, but it is perfect for creating a computer-to-computer/iPad/iPhone network for syncing, file sharing, etc.
Scroll past the list of wireless networks and click “Create Network…” (second item from the bottom)
Enter a name and an optional password
Your wireless icon will change from the normal highlighted bars, to a gray “pizza slice” with a little monitor icon on it
On your iPad, go to the network settings, and join the network you created
Basically, your mac is capable of serving up its own wireless network, even if none already exists. You can use it to do a lot of things, like share a wired internet connection, or as in this example, create a network for other devices to join to enable wifi-based synching.
If your mac has a functioning wifi card then you can do this! No preexisting network required.
