Yojimbo Organizes ‘Everything Else’

Yojimbo empowers Mac users to manage, effortlessly and securely, the onslaught of information encountered every day. 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 an optional, subscription-based sync service allows users with multiple Macs to silently and transparently exchange data between computers (subscription sold separately).

Yojimbo can also directly synchronize data via WiFi from one Mac to Yojimbo for iPad (sold separately), including encrypted items and tags.

Yojimbo 4 requires Mac OS X 10.8.2 or later. For more information on Yojimbo, or to download a fully functional demo version, visit the company’s web site:
