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.

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.

I used iNote Pad for years. Caboodle gets a 5 star overall rating. It is stable, inexpensive, and has more useful features than any other pad that I have used...and I have tried every notepad that is available. AWESOME APP!

I am going to have to further downgrade the rating for Caboodle and abandon it.

I used the Serials table to enter my long list of shareware purchases and serial numbers. A few weeks ago as I added more rows to the table it fell apart into plain text with each cell on a new line.

Without an undo I was now stuck with trying to reconstruct the table bit by bit. I had noticed how clumsy the table structure was before and this now confirms it is just a house of cards, which I do not want to reassemble repeatedly.

Searching and sorting were practically non-existent as well so I will now look elsewhere for my solution.

This turns out to have been both a waste of time and money.

I'll take a wild guess and state that this is probably not actually a problem with the software in question at all, but rather Apple's sloppy table code that it depends upon. It's notoriously buggy and poorly thought out, but it's all many shareware developers have available without rewriting their own table code from scratch.

My guess is, you would have seen the same fault in TextEdit.

caboodle is been very handy for saving website log ins and software registration and various other clippings. the only annoying part is the encryption feature that seems to be mediocre. everytime you enter the encryption code to view, it decrypt by default. I should be able to view by default but not decrypt. please fix this.

I mainly use it to keep my software serials and notes.

Doesn't sort, and the find feature is extremely erratic.

I've been a fan of Caboodle for ages. It's a great repository for notes, ideas, graphics. It has a clean interface and the sidebar makes it easy to keep files together based on subject matter. ... Very well done.

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.
