I used to be fond of DevonThink, but as I am increasingly using my iPad for reading, DevonThink Pro becomes less and less useful, to the point were I am considering alternatives.
The main problem is that it is very tiresome to get documents from the iPad into DevonThink. The problem is most urgent for Instapaper. All my troubles would be solved if DTTG would support the Instapaper app, but unfortunately this $15 app doesn’t do so.
I know several ways to add papers I have read with Instapaper on the iPad and deemed worth saving to DevonThink, but they all are very tiresome.
One way is to transport the page from Instapaper to iCab Mobile, apply the readability service, save it as a webarchive to dropbox and import the file to DT Pro. I use Hazel to automate the latter step, but it remains very cumbersome.
Another way is from Instapaper to GoodReader to DTTG. Apart from its tiresomeness it has the disadvantage that I the page with which I end up in DevonThink is cluttered with irrelevant info, adds and links, instead of the neat pages I have on Instapaper.
A third way is to e-mail the page from Instapaper, open the mail in Apple Mail, copy it, switch to DT Pro and create a new document with the content of the clipboard. I have tried to automate this process with scripts and rules but that doesn’t seem to work.
A fourth way is to send the url from Instapaper on the iPad to OmniFocus on the iPad, sync OmniFocus, click on the url in OmniFocus on my Mac, apply the readability service and save a PDF to DevonThink Pro. This is often the easiest way, but not what I want.
Any tips for a better workflow?
