the actions of the computer and the applications that run on it.
Scripts can make decisions based on user interaction or by parsing
and analyzing data, documents or events. Using AppleScript helps
people get more done in less time and with fewer mistakes.
Yojimbo 1.4 is also a maintenance release that fixes reported issues
and adds several significant refinements to this reliable, easy to
use information organizer.
“I find Yojimbo is a good way to keep my desktop organized, and that
makes me be, and feel more organized,” explained Chris Nandor, senior

digital daily life,” said Rich Siegel, founder and CEO of Bare Bones
Software. “With the addition of rich AppleScript support, Yojimbo

that our customers can devise, no matter how esoteric or complicated,
without adding UI complexity.”

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.
