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.
