“EagleFiler combines ease of use with an underlying ingenuity that makes it feel simple, fast, and lightweight. It’s packed with too many clever touches for me to list.”
“It’s a vital tool for the digital pack rat.…The application’s tagging, note-taking, and searching capabilities make finding that one file you stored in EagleFiler a year ago and want to retrieve today a cinch.”
|Just press the F1 key to import a Web page, a scrap of text, mail messages, or any file on your Mac. Press Option-F1 for options or Shift-F1 to make a quick note.||EagleFiler libraries use an open format: regular files and folders that are fully accessible to your other applications. Duplicate files are skipped automatically.|
|Import and view any kind of file: RTF, PDF, Word, images, Web archives, chats, and proprietary formats via Quick Look plug-ins.||The live search is faster than Spotlight, and you can also set up smart folders and smart folder actions. Search all your files and e-mail attachments, and see the matches highlighted.|
|Speed up your mail program by archiving old e-mails. EagleFiler can convert from Microsoft Outlook and other formats to the standard mbox format, and it’s designed to handle tons of mail efficiently.||Save Web pages as self-contained Web archives or PDF files, including all the images, formatting, and the original source URL.|
|Use the Mail-like interface to view your folders and file contents in single streamlined window (or multiple windows, if you want).||RTF and text files can be edited directly in EagleFiler. Double-click any kind of file to view or edit it in a specialized application.|
|Add tags and notes to your files. Tags work with Mavericks and add features like hierarchy and symbols. Notes can contain rich text and links.||Flag important files, keep track of which documents are unread, and assign colored labels that also show up in the Finder.|
|Secure your library using encryption approved by the NSA. Everything is viewable and searchable—once you’ve entered the passphrase.||Designed with data integrity in mind, EagleFiler ensures that your files are stored safely, and it can verify that none are lost or damaged. Let it protect you from bit rot.|
|Create multiple libraries, store them wherever you want, open more than one at a time, and drag and drop files between them.||Automate EagleFiler via AppleScript. Write stationery scripts that are triggered when you create new documents.|
|Files, the notes you add to them, and tags are searchable via Spotlight and from applications that support OpenMeta.||For more information, please see the feature list, screenshots, or the extensive user manual.|
