With the new iPad Pro and Magic Keyboard combination, I started wondering when the next big upgrade for DTTG would be.
So far, I’ve found using DTTG to collect and archive materials I’ve found on the web to be mostly inconsistent and somewhat frustrating because it’s not an easy workflow to determine if something “sent” to DTTG has been captured appropriately.
Certainly on the desktop version, it takes a bit of finagling too but it’s a bit less frustrating though still involved. For instance, I’ve been capturing many articles and sources on COVID-19 (as I’m sure many of you are too!) and my typical workflow on the desktop version is to check in DT3 as soon as a capture from a website is made and then either re-do the capture or tidy it up as I need it to be.
With DTTG, I cannot always capture websites in my preferred “Formatted Note” (clutter free) form and I’m not sure why; the option doesn’t always appear. And then when I can capture in Webarchive format (not something I generally prefer), sometimes what’s captured is a page with no information.
I suppose because I’m on the iPad OS platform, it’s not as easy to always check when something hasn’t been accurately captured and that adds to the frustration. Part of this may have to do with the fact that the screen size — the iPad — is much smaller. My iPad is currently an iPad Pro 9.5 with a keyboard, soon upgrading to iPad Pro 11 with Magic Keyboard.
Currently, I don’t use DTTG much to capture web information. I leave that task to when I’m on the computer. I wish my workflow would be different as it’s typically more relaxing to be on the sofa with a small device, reading up on COVID-19 articles and filing them away at that moment in DTTG.
Anyhow, just some thoughts and expressing curiosity to know what the future development of DTTG would be.
