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.

Full Specifications

What's new in version 4.5

  • Yojimbo now uses iCloud for syncing your data with multiple Macs. This requires that your Mac be signed into an iCloud account, and that iCloud Drive access is turned on for that account.

  • Synchronization data is stored securely on Apple's servers, and the amount of space it occupies is charged against your iCloud storage allowance. If there isn't enough room to store your data in iCloud, you may need to upgrade your iCloud storage.

  • Syncing only occurs between Macs that are signed into the same iCloud account. It is not possible to share sync data with multiple iCloud accounts.

  • Syncing occurs automatically when you make changes. There is a redundant timer which will sync every five minutes, as well as when you bring Yojimbo to the foreground. There is also a "Sync Now" button which you will probably never need to use, but by all means click it if you like.

  • The initial synchronization may take a while if you have a significant amount of data stored in Yojimbo. This will proceed in several steps, so if you are setting up Yojimbo on a new computer with no previous data, your best bet is to start Yojimbo and let it run uninterrupted until the count of items on the new computer agrees with the rest of your computers.

  • If you sign out of your iCloud account, or turn off iCloud Drive access on a computer, or click the "Stop" button in the Sync preferences, Yojimbo on that computer will no longer participate in synchronization. This will not affect any other computers that were signed into the same iCloud account.

  • There is a "Delete Sync Data" button in the Sync preferences. This will delete ALL sync data from iCloud, and cause all computers signed into that iCloud account to stop syncing Yojimbo data. Do not use this button unless you are specifically told to do so by Bare Bones Software technical support.

  • Because the infrastructure is now operated and managed by Apple, synchronization is provided at no cost beyond whatever Apple charges you for additional data storage. There is no signup required for synchronization (other than that required to use an iCloud account). If you previously had an active Yojimbo sync subscription, you will no longer be charged for that.
