Editors' Review

+

Together for Mac creates a library of your favorite Finder files, lets you organize them, and provides easy access through an always-present sidebar. Noteworthy features include drag-and-drop functionality for adding files to the library and outputting them via the shelf sidebar, extensive cataloging options, and reliable file encryption.

When started for the first time, Together prompts you to create a new library or import an existing one. The app's interface is clean and usable, combining a category, item, and preview column with a toolbar. One nice touch: You can open supported documents in new tabs. Add files though the menu, or drop them into the main window. Together supports many file types -- we were able to add text documents, media and Web archives, and even whole folders. Organize files via custom folders, groups, labels, keywords, and Mavericks tags.

Together provides more features than OS X's tagging system. The app's interface is a joy to use, and additional features like file encryption bring even more value to the product. If you like cataloging your files and feel that OS X's tagging is insufficient for your needs, this app is for you -- provided you're willing to pay for it once the trial version expires.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Together for Mac 3.1.7.

"Not DevonThink Office Pro, but great value, easy to use"

October 12, 2013  |  By Evanitude

 |  Version: Together 3.0.9

Pros

Nice UI.
Easy to setup categories, smart folders, and tags.
Overall, its feel is pleasant

Cons

It suffers from what all apps if type suffer from: the inability, for example, to dump a load of disparate files in one place (or import them), and have the program categorize them intelligently and specifically and automatically.

Summary

Unless you database power user on steroids, I'd recommend buying this app. It's a good value, it has a lot of functionality, and perhaps most important: it's always being developed and improved.

"Manage categories like articles to be kept."

May 19, 2010  |  By brooks 1941

 |  Version: Together 2.3.7

Pros

Together simply will let you keep control of any number of groups or categories you wish to keep for future use. IO use manily to keep articles regarding computers and applications such as Lifehacker items.

Cons

I have not found any significant item that calls to my attention a negative response.

Summary

I have used Together for many months now and of all the applications that claim to do what Together does, namely categorizing list, groups etc none can do a better job. Together stays on my dock and is istantly available when I want to add another article or create a list.

"Best of the Bunch"

April 02, 2010  |  By Frogfish8

 |  Version: Together 2.3.5

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I've used Evernote for years but object to the way they are now using the cloud as a way to squeeze money out of people (after you exceed 2GB) and that this is an annual fee. Just charge us for the program and then extra if you want / need their cloud. MobileMe can accomplish the same for any of these programs. The other great concern was that Evernote have STILL not implemented a way to migrate files/ notes from EN to any other similar program, thereby jailing your notes / information into Evernote. They claim to offer XML export but this doesn't work if moving from PC to a Mac (which I have done). I did however also try exporting the Together database to Yojimbo, & vice versa, and this was accomplished without any issues whatsoever, except losing the tags.

I also compared Circus Ponies' (Notebook), Journaler (excellent but no longer being actively developed / supported), Yojimbo (again excellent but the lack of Folder Nesting is a big negative for me though Yojimbo's Tagging is far more intuitive and easier, helping to speed up organisation and filing), Soho Notes 8 (lots of features but the hugely negative feedback on the web (just start Googling it) to program issues and support means this was deleted from my testing very quickly). I have to say Together is visually a little more Mac than Windows too and I also like the way I have the option to view my files either vertically or horizontally. Search in Together is much slicker & powerful too. Together integrates the power of OS X into a number of it's functions (as this is a Mac only program) although Journaler does it even better.

Others I trialed were :-
DevonThink Pro which was way too much power and yet oddly disorganised without lots of the little features that make some of these other programs so good at what they do.
Eaglefiler which is another very good program but the interface is not as polished as Together / Yojimbo / Evernote.
Voodoopad I also tried but it isn't as feature rich as some of the others.

Really the only downside I found to Together was it uses ca. 140 / 150MB of memory against Yojimbo's 40 / 50 MB so if that is an issue for you (on a 2GB machine perhaps) then I'd go for Yojimbo (so long as the lack of Nested Folders isn't an issue either) because there is otherwise little between them. I would strongly encourage Reinvented Software (the developers) to look at their Tagging system again though - Yojimbo's would be a good model.

I highly recommend Together but suggest you download trial versions of the 3 or 4 programs that pique your interest most and then use them all for everything you clip / note / archive until the trials expire. I think you will find you very quickly drop one or two (I started with 6 but used 3 - Together, Journaler & Yojimbo) until near the end of the Together trial - by which time I had made a decision. If you are not a Mac user, and therefore can't use Together, then Yojimbo is the one I'd recommend without hesitation.

"Brilliiant"

 |  Version: Together 2.3.1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
The best feature for me is Together's ability to import and show iWork docs - Pages, Numbers and Keynote - NONE of the competition can do this (MacJournal, Yojimbo, CircusPonies, or Journler for example) -it's just the best ans I've road testes them all!

 |  Version: Together 2.2.5

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
This is what I am looking for, an application that fits my need!

you can create your own project and create notes, then pull the files together or related to one project, it may link or copy it over the files, any files will do.

I've used shovebox before, its great, however, cant put my stuff into it aside from pdf or docs.

"Outstanding product"

February 03, 2009  |  By jfmad

 |  Version: Together 2.2.5

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Together is a great product. I disagree with the post below that compares it with Evernote (which is also a nice product). I view Together as something akin to a Finder supplement. It's for organizing and accessing files in complex ways that you can't accomplish easily using the traditional Finder. It extends the folder metaphor in ways that are easy to understand but very powerful. It does have a note-taking facility, and ability to save clippings, like Evernote, but that's not how I see its main purpose. I don't notice any issues with speed or startup, but the way. I use the "Shelf" (little popout) and keep it running all the time (it only uses about 50 MB of RAM and virtually no CPU).

"Together Has Got It Together!"

April 17, 2008  |  By RAlfieri

 |  Version: Together 2.0.10

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I tried an early release of Together 2.x and had problems with imports dying and slow performance.

No longer! I am amazed at how smooth and fast my imports went and the speed of the application overall. The fantastic integration with QuickLook is the best out there bar none.

I've been a user of DevonThink and EagleFiler, and Together wins the prize. It gives me what I need without being over-engineered, it is lightning fast, uses the standard file system and has easy drag and drop storage. On top of all that, put a well designed user interface that is very Mac and you have it all.

As Kirk used to say to Scotty, "Mr. Harris, you are a miracle worker!"

Cheers,
Rob

"relatively slow, but EXPENSIVE as well"

February 05, 2008  |  By karmakanic

 |  Version: Together 2.0.6

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I have tried Together and had a couple of crashes when the # of files increased.
I like the set-up and it is actually something I really like. The problem is that it's slow and too expensive for me.

"You're better off using Finder"

July 27, 2007  |  By mklutz

 |  Version: Keep It Together 1.3.7

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Finder has more features and better usability than this. It ran my machine harder than Photoshop does, it was slow, annoying, painful. I can organize my files better in Finder using spotlight keywords under info, and by sorting things into folders. This was basically useless and a drain on my system.

Nice work so far.
