Editors' Review

Yojimbo for Mac is an uncomplicated organizational application that allows you to collect and manage files using its well-designed tagging system. A small number of performance issues may discourage you from using this application, but rest assured that Yojimbo will ease your usual workflow.

Pros

Straightforward interface: Thanks to the ever-present Drop Dock, using this program could not be easier. Yojimbo presents all files in a neat manner, organizing photos, bookmarks, and more into separate locations, and we enjoyed the helpful preview screen that allows you to see the contents of a file without opening it.

Intelligent features: Yojimbo for Mac boasts a powerful tagging and search system that allows you to find files with exact precision. We were impressed that Yojimbo was usually able to identify what type of data we had added, such as a URL, and placed it in the most relevant location without any input from us.

Affordable, efficient synchronization: The latest update added more stability to the synchronization tool offered by Yojimbo. The sync tool performed flawlessly during tests, making data easy to download to another device. At a $3/month subscription price, this tool is completely optional and costs less than some competing programs.

Cons

Inconsistent processing: The overall performance of Yojimbo for Mac varied greatly during tests. For example, files were always easily found after completing searches, but the search process itself sometimes had sluggish feel and took longer than desired to generate results.

Bottom Line

Yojimbo for Mac is likely to improve your work efficiency with its useful toolkit and affordable pricing plan, and despite the mixed performance, we believe this program is the best choice for those only needing a small amount of organization to those needing a massive amount.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Yojimbo for Mac 4.0.3.

What's new in version 4.0.4
  • This release consists entirely of fixes for reported issues, and contains no new features.
  • The minimum required OS version has been updated from OS X 10.8.2 to OS X 10.8.5.
  • Corrected an issue with the embedded store which could interfere with sync subscription purchasing under OS X 10.10 "Yosemite".
  • The crash reporter now auto-fills the email address from the address book. A button to go to our Privacy Policy page and additional verbiage are included.
  • The built-in Software Update (for non-app-store builds) will now unpack into a subdirectory of ~/Library/Caches/, to avoid a use case in which unpacking completes into a subdirectory of /tmp, and then the user waits overnight to do the installation, and in the meantime the OS clears /tmp which results in an error when trying to apply the update the next day.
  • Corrected keyboard focus in the Software Update prompt window.
  • Corrected keyboard focus in the crash reporter window.
  • There is a bug in OS X 10.10 and 10.10.1 which can cause data loss when migrating from a previous (3.x or older) version of Yojimbo. When starting the application, if migration is required and either of these OS versions is in use, Yojimbo presents an alert explaining the situation and requiring an OS update. More information is available here.
