Hallon is an app that can create bookmarks in many applications that usually can't create bookmarks and you can access these bookmarks all the time. You can also set an alarm and write notes for each bookmark.

For example, you can bookmark your favorite songs in iTunes or some documents that you are working on and access and open them easily whenever you want. You can even bookmark an email that you have to reply to later that day or the contact information of a friend whom you need to contact before the end of the week and get an alarm for it at the right time to remind you

what a great app. (I liked smultron too, but amin love with textmate.)

but ... I'd pay for hallon, especially if it had real .mac syncing, and if it could integrate with ical (eg, something like the mouth-watering soon-to-be mailtags 1.2 I've been waiting for).

also, export options are a must: output to .ics, csv ... markdown ;)

cheers and keep up the great work!

Hallon is the Swedish word for Raspberry, so if you want to change the icon you'd have to change the name.

You can probably pick up a nice B&W "bookmark" icon to replace the raspberry with by grovelling around in the Resource directories of other apps that use bookmarks.

Seems like a very nice app. Can I offer one recomendation? PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE create black & white icons. So many developers forget about this standard when they design menu items & I dont quite understand why. I have all B&W (very careful about what I add to the menu bar) and then Hallon adds a big red dot.

I dont want to sound like I'm complaining but standards are very important to a lot of people, myself included, & the standard for Mac menu bar icons is black & white illustration, not color photos.

A simple update would be GREAT!

Thanks for the nice software. :-)

I may be wrong here but the menu for the keyboard layout is not black and white. It´s a little color flag. Seeing as how that is not a third party menu item either Apple has gone against its own standard or there is no such standard.

I have all sorts of colurful menu itmes and they look very nice up there.

Right-click on Hallon and select "Show Package Contents." Go to Hallon/Contents/Resources/ and open the file hallon16.tiff. Save a backup copy and have your way with it. Relaunch Hallon.

I'd hate for you to be prevented from using a cool app like this by its icon. Good luck changing a raspberry to black and white, but if you'll settle for grayscale, that works pretty well. The app ToyViewer can be used for this, and it's a winner.

Standard? Not anymore. Keyboard localization is one item, Timbuktu has had a colorful icon for years, as does meteorologist, the ShuttlePro menu item and others that I have seen but don't know the name of. The point is that good design can be colorful, but normally starts with b/w. If one icon makes that much of a difference in your computing lifestyle, then I have an old Mac IIci with a two-page b/w monitor I can sell you.

Oh, what about the Apple in the menubar? You may want to call Apple and tell them they need to change it! If everybody conformed to standards, then we would not have Apple, we would not have other brands that dare to be different.

Whilst I don't necessarily agree that having a black and white icon is "standard", I have the clock, volume, airport signal, keychain status, Bluetooth status and Sailing clicker icons all in my menu bar and they are black and white. A think colour should be used to highlight something, rather than by default. The keyboard menu is in colour because it's not possible to represent a flag properly in black and white but all of Apple's own icons are in black and white and most other apps adhere to this.

Also, to the person above me, your arguments that people shouldn't adhere to standards are frankly, silly, verging on the point of being downright ignorant. If people didn't adhere to standards you'd have an ugly mess that didn't work, with everything tied to proprietary systems.

Standards are VERY important. Particularly consistency in the interface.

However this doesn't necessarily get in the way of the functioning of this app

I agree. I'd also like to se a black and white "Hallon". It will probably look quite bad with a black & white raspberry though. :-)

Consistency is nice. i don't have the keyboard layput menu active because it's in color. The poster who said "the Apple menu is in color", well, it's on the other side of the screen and not a menu bar item in the sense as the others.

While Apple's proven that there really are no more standards when it comes to UI design on the Mac, apps do look pretty ridiculous if they stand out like this.

More importantly, what the hell do raspberries have to do with application bookmarks? What was the thought process behind this? It's great to have a logo and everything, but this is totally inappropriate.

Hallon is Swedish for raspberry, and thus appropriate whilst mirroring the project name.
Note, not all developer have english as their native language. They must be able to name their app and companies as they see fit and without having to clarifying and justifying it.
Try to do a translation first before criticizing them.

Also: Spotlight, the apple, Butler icons are blue, Teleport is partly red, keyboard language flags multicolored.
You can always change the colour settings to black n' white. That will probably keep you of the tranquilizers for awhile.

What a great app! Stable and does what it claims to do. It would be great if Entourage could be added to the list of supported apps - that would be a bonus, but no complaints here.

Keep up the good work!

I agree about Entourage. Or at least show what the Apple Script should look like. Great little program.

How does it work?
  1. Select what you want to bookmark in one of the supported apps, like e.g. iTunes
  2. Choose Add… from the Hallon icon in the top right corner and if you want you can set a due date and an alarm in the Organizer which will notify you when you want and open it
  3. You can access the bookmark whenever you want by choosing it from the menu bar icon in the top right corner or by double-clicking it in the Organizer


Hallon comes with support for the latest versions of Address Book, Finder, Google Chrome, iPhoto, iTunes, Mail, Safari and Terminal.
