Parsnips overview

Parsnips is a new breed of Personal Information Manager... If you're like most people, you constantly come across useful bits of information throughout the day while using your computer. It may come from a Web site, e-mail, chat sessions, usenet news articles or just files that you have been sent. Parsnips now gives you a place to store all these bits of useful text and easily find them later.

Using a drag and drop interface, you select the text you want to save and drag it into Parsnips. Parsnips automatically creates an "item" for the information, and saves it away for later retrieval. You can also give the item a title, an associated URL or assign keywords to it. Later, when you want to find that information again, you can search for it using Parsnips powerful search mechanism.

Features:
  • Find all items containing specific words or boolean combinations of words in either the title or the main body of text.
  • Find items containing one or more keywords you have attached to them.
  • Find all items created in the past day, week, month, year, or any arbitrary range of dates.

@Macupdate - The link to developer website should be: http://www.otherwise.com/Parsnips/ (instead of http://www.otherwise.com/Parsnips.html) - This app is now free (not $27). The app web page starts with this statement: "Snow Leopard Users: A new release 1.5.1 fixes an incompatibility with Snow Leopard. NOTE: Parsnips is now a free application. After downloading, use the following license string to gain full access to the application: dcf2-dcd9-ddeb-ddea-75b6 "

This program continues to get better with each version release. The addition of a reference list of past keyword labels is especially appreciated, since it allows keeping a consistent set of labels. Label the notes, pluck them from the database when needed, and export them into labeled textfiles within a single folder: all your archiving and organizing is taken care of easily. I have no problem with user interface (improved in this edition, with more color) or Java speed, and the ability to transfer databases between MAC and WIN platforms while remaining in the same program is as always the strong point of Parsnips. I recommend this program particularly along with hierarchical organizers such as DevonNote or Jree (opensource, also Java, and free). You can't ask for more help with collecting bits of information, large or small.

This program is great. Being able to drag text to a window when you're browsing the web, and not having to cut-bring up application-paste is really sweet.

Great! I hate sorting through all my stickies notes, so the find feature is invaluable. Apart from the layout, which could be a little nicer, it's great. Like the name too =) (not been using it for long enough to rate stability)

Nice concept and easy to use, but it's Java, too Java. The interface is not well arranged, and the performance is extremely low.
