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
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
