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. Yojimbo’s Sidekick option exports most types of data which can be viewed on an iPhone, Android phone or any other device with a modern web browser. Yojimbo can also synchronize its entire library to Yojimbo for iPad (sold separately), including encrypted items and tags.

Yojimbo 3 is a Universal application that requires Mac OS X 10.5.7 or later, and is compatible with Mac OS X 10.7 Lion™. For more information on Yojimbo, or to obtain a fully functional demo version, visit:

Yojimbo for iPad stores all types of items contained by Yojimbo 3, including notes, passwords, bookmarks, serial numbers, PDFs, images and web archives. The app also handles encrypted data from Yojimbo 3 using the secure AES-256 algorithm standard.

Yojimbo for iPad supports all types of Yojimbo collections: smart, tag, and manual, and allows instant information retrieval through its built-in search.
