Bare Bones Software Releases Yojimbo 1.1
First Update to Its Reliable, Effortless Information Organizer

BEDFORD, Mass. – March 9, 2006 – Bare Bones Software, developer of leading-edge power tools for Mac OS X, today released Yojimbo 1.1, the reliable, effortless information organizer.

Yojimbo empowers Mac users to organize and manage today’s onslaught of information, even across multiple computers, with a natural user experience and the reliability expected from Bare Bones Software. Yojimbo revolutionizes information organization for individuals by providing an effortless mechanism to collect, store and find information as needed.

Yojimbo 1.1 enhancements include a new “open link” button for one-click access to bookmark items, the ability to create new items via AppleScript for automating the import of information stored in other formats, and the means to decide whether to create a bookmark or a web archive when dragging a web address to Yojimbo’s Drop Dock.

“Yojimbo’s effortless approach to managing the information overload of daily life has been very well received by our customers,” said Rich Siegel, founder and CEO of Bare Bones Software, Inc. “We’ve gotten a lot of great feedback, and we’re pleased to release this first of many planned updates to Yojimbo.”

Yojimbo 1.1 requires Mac OS X 10.4.3 or later and is available free of charge to all registered Yojimbo customers. An update package is available for download from the Bare Bones Software web site:

Yojimbo Organizes Everything Else

Yojimbo empowers Mac users to manage, effortlessly and securely, the onslaught of information encountered every day at work and at home, even across multiple computers. Yojimbo stores different data types: text notes, passwords, Web bookmarks, product serial numbers, PDFs, and web archives.

Data input into Yojimbo follows familiar Mac User Interface gestures such as copy-and-paste, drag-and-drop, a Quick Input Panel, or PDF Services from the Print menu. Searching and retrieval are instantaneous, using either Yojimbo’s built-in search, or the Spotlight search system in Mac OS X Tiger. If desired, Yojimbo will encrypt data using the secure AES-256 algorithm standard.

Its simple, flexible storage system allows for personally-defined organization of data. Support for Mac OS X’s Sync Services synchronization provides back-up and data portability for .Mac account holders, making irrelevant which computer was used to access, add or modify an item stored in Yojimbo.
