I have been a die-hard user of Yojimbo since they first released it. I cram all sorts of information into it: account logins, passwords (encrypted), pdf manuals, computer tips, etc. Also, Yojimbo syncs using .Mac so I can access my information using the native Mac OS client on both of my machines. But today, Tony pointed me to Evernote, which is still in beta, but looks like a promising replacement because it synchronizes not only across machines, but also to a web interface (with optimized iPhone interface as well). It also features OCR for images, and promises to also support geotagging from supported devices (like the future iPhone). I still don't have an invite for the beta, but I hope to get one soon.
I also found Webjimbo, which is a web app that syncs with Yojimbo. It looks pretty good, but I haven't tried it yet.
If Evernote doesn't give me a beta invite soon, I will download Webjimbo and give it a try. (Thank you! I have been invited. - June 20)
Finally, there is Bento, which I downloaded when it first came out and abandoned because it seemed ... more clunky than Yojimbo. Yojimbo is blazing fast and lets me find stuff almost instantly.
So does anyone out there have opinions on the best organizer for digital content? You know, aside from a bunch of stickies on the screen. ;) I'm most interested in Evernote vs. Yojimbo/Webjimbo.
On a side note, I have started using Yep to find PDF files that don't life inside Yojimbo. The makers of Yep also offer an application called Leap, which looks really cool. The only problem is that I can't think of a reason to use Leap. It lets you browse and search files based on type and filename... but I can find files using Spotlight in less time because I don't have to launch a separate application. Still, if Leap can learn to incorporate more standard Finder-type browsing, it could be a great Finder replacement.
*UPDATE* I've been using Evernote for a day now, and I really like it! There are some weird beta bugs, but so far, none of them have been sever enough to really impact usability. I snapped a picture of one of Tony's books with my iPhone and emailed it into my account, and the server-based OCR service tagged three of the four big words on the cover. Not bad...
