Tags is abandonware and has not been seriously developed for years (apart from making it work with new OS X releases). Despite repeated questions by users to Case Apps on several media there has been no word whatsoever since Mavericks was released as to when an update can be expected. This is a pity since the app used to work fine. Seems like this is going the way Punakea went.

This is OBSOLETE software if you use Mavericks. It writes tags in an old format, and there appears to be no effort to update the application. It creates OpenMeta tags, an old non-official format that many applications used. But everything is moving to the new Mavericks format, so if you buy this your tags will likely not be very usuable in the new system or new applications.

This app is not updated enough for my liking. Yes it's simple and does the job, but a developer that cares about their app and customers would improve and innovate. Plus, the only response to Mavericks so far is on twitter, with no mention on the website, leaving people like me wondering if the developer really cares anymore. I am confused on how this will work with Mavericks as well because doesn't Mavericks have a limit on the amount of tags? The interface doesn't seem like it lends itself to large amounts of tags like Tags does. I use a ton of different tags, and I still think openMeta is going to be useful alongside Mavericks, but I could be wrong.

Until Maverick comes out, this really is the best tagging utility currently available. However, to echo what a prior reviewer below me stated, the app is way overpriced for functionality. I mean, it hasn't been updated since 2011 and the developers want to charge almost as much as it might cost to upgrade Maverick? No thank you.

On another note, it's sad that a function so useful for file organization such as tagging has undergone so little development. You would be amazed with how easy you are able to find files when you combine Hazel automation with tagging.

Excuse me, it was updated in 2012. Still overpriced for what it does.

Very nice and effective app.
Overpriced. I'm sure if they cut the price down by 3 ($9.99), they would sell at least 3-5 times more. Especially if they enter in the MAS.

Also, they need to assure people that they are still active in the development and updates of their app.

Finally, the trial period is too short to evaluate an application such as Tags. Because it's an approach to OpenMeta that we need to get acustomed to in order to really feel we need it.

Thanks.

Somebody should update this page. The actual version is at least 2.5.1.

BTW, a nice app but unfortunately quite overpriced.

Does anyone know why the developer doesn't respond to their email that they issue...as I've moved to a new computer; I keep trying to "unlock" the software with my serial number. And I keep getting a message to contact the support team? Frustrating.

Among all the tagging applications that have I tried (i.e., Leap, iDocument, HoudahSpot, Punakea, and Tags), I prefer Tags the most.

Unfortunately, after three emails requesting support over the last month, I have yet to receive a single (even boilerplate) response from Caseapps. Since this application hasn't been updated since August, I'm left to wonder whether this application is still being supported at all. The lack of response I've received has also been the only reason I've held off on purchasing Tags.

With me, Tags has encountered problems when I have asked it to delete and rename tags (e.g. the file shows that the tag has been removed from it yet the file still appears under that tag category, etc.) and Tag Window has a scrolling bug that forces me to repeatedly resize the Tag Window as opposed to much more simply use the scrolling feature on my trackpad to go the the appropriate tag(s). There is also much room for new features, especially a Smart Folder in which I can define which tags are included (including non-overlapping tags) to accommodate special research projects.

On the note of non-response from developers, I am a license holder of Punakea, and they have never responded to any support emails, either, over a much longer period of time. So, while Punakea is by far the most similar to Tags in terms of feature set and UI, its developers are no more responsive to customer issues.

Finally, Path Finder 6, which has been talked about for two years now but has not appeared, is supposed to feature tagging. I am hoping this is released soon and that the tagging function is well-integrated into the finder.

Update:

Path Finder 6 was released yesterday. After a brief review of its tagging features, both Tags and Punakea remain far superior in terms of ease of use and functionality than Path Finder 6, which as far as I can tell, offers neither a Tag List (Tags) or Tag Cloud (Punakea) to easily view, assign, and sort through tags. I had been hoping for a Tag Cloud in Path Finder 6, however it doesn't appear like that functionality is there.

Update 2:

Within hours of posting this review, I finally received responses from CASEapps to each of my emails. They acknowledged the issues and told me they are addressing them in the next release. So, it looks like Tags is still alive and in development.

Best (Open Source Tagging for Mac OS X) implementation ever! I use also Leap, by far the best standalone OpenMeta solution, but Tags is perfectly integrated in Mac OS X. Even tagging in Mail is a charm. And, after some Mails with the Developer and testing some special Debug-Versions, Tags works also in Lion (10.7.2). Best and also fastest support I ever get.

PS. And NO. I do not get my paycheck from this guys ;-)
