2.0.4

Store and organize various bits of info.

Overview

Note: Caboodle is no longer under development, and it is no longer available for sale.

Caboodle allows users to store and organize varied bits of info. Everyone comes across information that they want to refer to later. Maybe gifts you've received or sent, product serial numbers, recipes, directions to someone's house, a photo of your pet, or anything else. Caboodle is a tool to help store and organize such varied bits of information.

You can arrange the items in an outline-like hierarchy, and include both structured fields and free-form text and pictures in each entry, along with Web links, lists, tables, PDFs, and any other kind of file as attachments. When you create a new entry within an existing one, the custom fields are inherited, allowing quickly creating content in an organized fashion. But you can also add or remove custom fields independently for each entry.

Entries can be encrypted to hide your most sensitive information. They can also be searched, and the Services menu is supported to quickly add or output an entry. Caboodle also supports import and export in several formats.

I upgraded to version 2.0.4 after Before Dawn acquired the app from Dejal and I've been waiting for a while to work with it, because I was hoping the newly added search function might be fixed. I haven't been able to get any matches by using the built-in search function. I had collected a couple of hundred entries in a single document using the old Dejal version and was hoping to be able search the different entries. I haven't been able to get search to work in a newly created document, either. I contacted Before Dawn support, but didn't get a reply. I saw another report of search difficulty without any solution, but I don't seem to be able to access the user submissions for support anymore to view follow-up. The Troubleshooting link in the online Caboodle User Guide yields a 404 (not found) error.

how much memory it consumes with hundreds of notes ?
and how good is the search comparable to Notational Velocity for example ?

I have been using Caboodle for about three years and love it. It just works flawlessly and is extremely easy to learn and use. I've had a couple of technical problems (mostly when having to reinstall the program after hard drive crash) and always got a response to my tech support inquiries within a couple of hours. I recommend this app without hesitation. --JN

A promo on an application that has not been updated for two years looks a bit weird to me. Spring cleaning? It used to be (and still is in a way) a nice app but it is so far behind its competitors that it seems unfair to make the old man fight on his last days. Thanks and RIP.

Caboodle is a great tool for getting snippets of information: text, pictures, webpages... and organize them into a database. Similar to Devonthink, but CHEAPER, FASTER and with a NICER interface... and with MUCH LESS features. But 90% of us needs just what is in Caboodle. I could like this soft very much... if I used it everyday. But I found Evernote. It does almost the same (except for webpages) and its database is accessible from everywhere. And it's free. So...

Are others finding that each new entry and each file move takes about 16 to 20 seconds to process under the spinning beach ball?

Well I tried cleaning up my data base and pruned everything to the bare minimum - and Caboodle just chugs and lugs along at its own snail's pace. It is driving me nuts - and I paid for this. I'm going back to iNotePad, it is not as pretty and has not been updated for ages, but hell it works. I'll keep my Caboodle license in iNotePad in case Caboodle ever does what it is supposed to do - at least I will be able to find it if and when I need it again. This is not really ready for commercial release.

Sorry - I omitted to mention Dejals other product that complements this perfectly - Blogassist. Windows based internet marketers are paying nearly $50 for something not nearly as effective. And no, I'm not married to anyone at Dejal - I'm just a happy buyer.

I'm a Mac using Affiliate Marketer and Product reviewer, which puts me most of the time behind the 8 ball; as there is virtually no internet marketing software available on the Mac platform (with the exception of Adobe Air based ones). In Caboodle I've found something that fits the bill perfectly for what I need - the ability to visit sites, save data and images and then write reviews on them for publication. I need ease of access, subject heirarchy, simplicity,security and stability. Caboodle gives me all this and for less than the price of a takeaway meal. A major step forward for my productivity. Thank you.
