I have been looking for an alternative to Evernote and I am currently trialling DTPO and DEVONthink To Go. iOS functionality that is synced with my Mac is a must-have feature for me, so I was excited to read about the new DEVONthink To Go.
I have imported all my Evernote data and everything seems to be working well, except for sync. I am using Box.com and the issue I seem to be having is that everything works great for a little while, and then I will start getting sync errors (“Authentication Failed”). If I try to log into Box.com via the web browser it asks me to enter a CAPTCHA, and then I am able to log in successfully and sync works again for a little while before it breaks and I have to repeat the process.
My guess is that something is triggering Box.com to invoke the CAPTCHA requirement and when that happens sync stops working. Maybe syncing too frequently? I looking around the Box settings to see if I could turn this off, but didn’t find much.
I know that Dropbox might be a better choice, but one of the reasons I want to switch to DEVONthink is to reduce expense in the long run (now that Evernote has raised their rates), and I would have to pay monthly for a Dropbox account to get the space I need, whereas I have 50 GB Box.com account for free.
If anyone has any suggestions I would appreciate it!
