Yep is a document organization and management tool. Like iTunes for music or iPhoto for photos, Yep lets you search and view your documents in a comfortable interface, while offering the ability to automatically save documents into a file in your Documents folder. Yep also provides direct scanning support and new drag-and-drop text or image file creation from within the application.

It's recently been regularly updated and it's certainly faster and seems more stable too.
Personally I like this programme a lot and would be hard pressed to find another as easy to use and as useful.
I've just upped my star rating for it

Yep! is one of my favorite apps. I have around 5,000+ pdf files on my hard drive and about ⅔ of them are currently locatable thanks to Yep's tag management (the other ⅓ need to be tagged). If, like me, you have a lot of research papers, books, etc. to sift through every day, Yep! offers some excellent search capabilities. Say you are looking for an article on contemporary art that contains the word "legibility." You know that one article you want to find also discusses Marcel Duchamp. If you've tagged the articles well, you can search for the word "legibility" and in the tag viewer you see the tag "contemporary art," so you click it, instantly narrowing your search results. You can then use Quick View to see which articles might be useful. You also notice a "Marcel Duchamp" tag. You click that and locate the article you had in mind. There are, of course, many variations of this type of search.

Yep! does have some limitations. Perhaps the biggest unresolved and obvious bug is that if you opt to buy directly from Ironic Software, Yep! does not have an autoupdate feature. It has been like this for a year or more now.

Software like this really need to have a built-in OCR engine, Yep! doesn't. An OCR engine would increase costs, but I'd pay extra for a reasonably priced plugin.

I thought that Yep! had some auto-tagging feature, but I've never seen it work. I've been using Yep! for about 5 years now!

Finally, I was more than annoyed and dumbfounded when I discovered that the developer deliberately imposed a 4 minute testing period on the demo version. I needed it because I was working between partitioned systems for awhile and just wanted to run the demo on the other partition (the last thing I wanted was some licensing hassle). A kind of little snitch-style 3 hour limit might be more reasonable. I don't know what a user can find out about the app in 4 minutes!

I am looking for a document manager to manage the 1,600 or so PDFs and 500 or so text documents that I have but do not utilize because my Documents folder is such a mess. These are my observations using Yep.

Pros:

1. Does not use proprietary db resulting in fast “import.”
2. Easy to add tags and change creation date.
3. New note creation in external text editor.
4. Tag cloud, size determined by number of documents with that particular tag.
5. Dropbox.app compatible (not tested).
6. Can view documents in their default app.
7. Rate documents with stars similar to iTunes.
8. Supports saving new notes as Word 97, 03, 07, pages, pdf, odt, rtf, rtfd, html, web archive.
9. Extensive sorting options.

Cons:

1. Does not use proprietary db, meaning you can screw it up externally.
2. Only searches content or filename, cannot search all.
3. New note creation only in external text editor, then they seem to disappear into the ether nowhere to be found in Yep.
4. Can view documents in their default app ONLY, Yep does not display contents natively.
5. No labels.
6. New notes default to rtfd, no option to set different default.
7. Sorting notes by date created doesn’t sort them by date created.

Sigh.

Been waiting forever but does it recognise Illustrator .ai files with pdf previews/

I really would like to scour through all my images and sort them.

Recently I switched from the MAS version to the "direct" one

As I couldn't find a "Check for Updates" command/option in Preferences nor in any menu and wandered about what would happen when an update came out ;-)

Today an update for both Yep and Leap has been released and... I only know thanks to MacUpdate: none of these apps prompts me to update :-/

but I got an email from Ironic Software, with subject "Ironic Software Upgrades", containing nothing else than... advertising for another software they sell =:-0

The check for updates button is in the Mac App Store app. It's that first button on the right at the top of the App window. It's marked as "Updates"

Yes, this is a major PITA. A few updates have passed and there's still no way of checking for updates in the app.

A highly sophisticated interface: it's truly unpredictable. Even after spending an hour with usage manual I could not know what will happen the next moment I touch something in the GUI. Don't really think it will be widely used, a very niche product. Hard to use, hard to understand.

Ironic Software finally has made it so that I can purchase the upgrade and download the software without going through the MAS. The latest version I'm running from their site (3.1.1) is solid and functions well.
I can now do an "open with" function inside of the app, which is very useful.
I think I am fairly satisfied with the performance of the current build of this application.

Mac App Store version still 3.0.4. When will the new version 3.0.6 for Mac AppStore will be released?

A more answerable question would be: has 3.0.6 already been submitted for MAS distribution? If so, it's specific availability there is, as always, determined by Apple.

Right now, version 3.1 is out, and waiting in the MAS, which could take a week or two.

Sometimes the minor versions will get slightly out of sync.

3.1.1 is out on the MAS. After MAS owners download and run 3.1.1 they can also download updates straight from us as soon as we release them. This cuts down on the app store delay.

A nice approach to organize your files! Does what it says, and for people who appreciate this it will be a good time saver.

While I'll never understand your file system and why on earth we can't choose where to put them ourselves, I've worked out my own file system that works just fine. I've got my programmes on a 46 gbyte express card but all my data on the original HD on my Macbook Pro. I just wish we could have the opportunity to delete the file folder, even though it takes up no room when it's empty. It's aesthetically annoying!

However this new version 3.0.3 is considerably faster in opening, so thanks a lot for that and, on the whole, I like this programme very much indeed and how it makes finding files so very easy.
