Bare Bones Software Ships New Yojimbo 1.0; First Information Organizer for Mac OS X That Makes Information Storage and Access Effortless Across Multiple Computers.

BEDFORD, Mass. -- Bare Bones Software, developer of leading-edge power tools for Mac OS X, today shipped Yojimbo 1.0, a completely new information organizer that effortlessly fits into the flow of work and digital life.

Now for the first time, Mac users can organize and manage today's onslaught of information, even across multiple computers, with a natural user experience and the reliability expected from Bare Bones Software. Yojimbo revolutionizes information organization for individuals by providing an effortless mechanism to collect, store and find information as needed.

"Yojimbo is as easy to add to as your junk drawer, but as easy to find things in as a card catalog," said Merlin Mann of 43folders.com. "Smart soup is a good thing, and Yojimbo does that nicely."

"We designed Yojimbo with an intense focus on providing an effortless user experience, so that it stays out of your way and yet remains at your fingertips," said Rich Siegel, founder and CEO of Bare Bones Software, Inc. "Yojimbo makes it easy for any Mac user -- from novices to uber-geeks -- to stay organized without resorting to mental gymnastics."

"At some point, we've all tried to invent or adopt a filing system to manage the 'everything else' in our lives," Siegel continued. "Regardless of what you store and how you organize, Yojimbo works with you, never against you. You can store whatever you like in it; for example, I've been using it for everything from code snippets and web links to creating a home inventory."

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.

An encryption subsystem allows customers to encrypt individual data items for storage, without interfering with ease of retrieval. Yojimbo encrypts data using the secure AES-256 algorithm standard. Its simple, flexible storage system allows for additional, personally-defined organization of data. Support for Mac OS X's Sync Services synchronization provides data portability for .Mac account holders, making irrelevant which computer was used to access, add or modify an item stored in Yojimbo.

Yojimbo takes advantage of several Tiger-only technologies, such as Sync Services to provide easy synchronization across multiple computers for .Mac participants, the system-wide Spotlight search system for inclusion of Yojimbo-stored information in search results, and the Core Data frameworks for reliably storing information. Yojimbo 1.0 requires Mac OS X 10.4.3 or later. For more information on Yojimbo, or to download a fully functional demo version, visit the company's web site:
