"Our customers love to create something new. And for this, they collect, organize, structure, delete, note, write, and - finally - perfect. With the apps that we have put together for you in this SummerFest, handcrafted by creators for creators, you can do this without the computer getting in the way of your creativity", says Eric Bohnisch-Volkmann, President of DEVONtechnologies.
"No matter what craft you're pursuing, there is no investment more useful, productive, or gratifying than a set of finely crafted tools and trustworthy reference materials", comments Rich Siegel, founder of Bare Bones Software.
"We've published over 120 practical books covering the most important Mac- and iOS-related apps, tasks, and technologies, including titles on DEVONthink, PDFpen, Scrivener, and TextExpander. All these books were created using Nisus Writer Pro, and for the TidBITS side of our business, we rely entirely on BBEdit for writing and editing articles. If you take your text seriously, do yourself a favor and invest in the tools and training that let you focus on the best way to convey your ideas to the world." - Adam Engst, publisher of Take Control Books.
