Yojimbo Organizes Everything Else

Yojimbo empowers Mac users to manage, effortlessly and securely, the onslaught of information encountered every day, even across multiple computers. Yojimbo stores rich text notes, passwords, bookmarks, serial numbers, PDFs, images, and web archives.

Gathering information is easy through familiar Mac interface gestures, Yojimbo’s own Quick Input Panel and Save PDF to Yojimbo commands, and it can encrypt stored data using the secure AES-256 algorithm standard.

Yojimbo’s tagging system empowers simple personal organization, and information retrieval is instantaneous through its built-in search or Spotlight. Support for Sync Services lets MobileMe account holders exchange data between multiple Macintosh computers, and Yojimbo’s Sidekick option exports data which can be viewed on an iPhone, iPad or any other device with a modern web browser.
