Daily look into macupdate.com ... oh, another Webjimbo update. Ok, but what's with Yojimbo? Competing apps have been improved a lot recently.

I hope this doesn't mean that development is being dropped on YoJimbo? After all, as nice as YoJimbo is, it desparately needs a few features added to make it a truly great research tool.

One feature I had hoped this might address is a backup function. YoJimbo can be used to store an awful lot of pages, and - to date - I know of no way to fully back up the internal YoJimbo information/links to an associated file folder of downloaded pages. Major oversight!

Does WebJimbo answer this problem, can anyone tell me? SyncTogether allows for YoJimbo sybncong, but not for appending/moving/combining YoJimbo internal data files, but not any actual stored files.

The documentation on WebJimbo is almost nonexistent. The installation assistant walks you through the confusing set up, but I couldn't find any other information about this application's features online, and I never did get it to work.

Not much on sales hype are these guys? How's about a good paragraph or two-long schpiel describing why I would want to shell out $25.00 for this, and how it differs from - or augments - YoJimbo. Come on on people, not everybody who uses YoJimbo is an HTML-programming BBEdit nerd. BareBones is one thing, we need more than 0 info (at least a memo!).

Confused... Hoping for a thorough backup solution before my data is lost forever.

PS. Thanks for YoJimbo, a great app...so far.

I just installed WebJimbo last night and thought the automated setup did a great job of explaining and walking me through the setup. While this part of the interface isn't the most polished in terms of a Mac app, it was very easy to follow.

I could see how, if you aren't familiar with opening ports on your router, that might throw you for a bit (Google is your friend), but overall it was painless.

I'm using WebJ from work this morning and it's sweet! Added notes, searched for stuff, no problems! Since I have to work in a Windows world at work this app could be a great asset to me. Time will tell.

Contact the developer if you haven't already, I'm sure he/they would be open to suggestions and willing to provide further guidance on setup.

As for the price, that's up to the developer to set. He's done the hard work and has to support it. ...Having said that, $29.95 is just a bit steep for me. Maybe there will be a macupdate/maczot promo? Or a coupon for the subscribers to the barebones yojimbo list? Launch special? Who knows? Either way, I'm going to exercise the demo as much as I can during the trial...

Not trying to refute your experience, just giving another view based on mine.

All the best!

From the WebJimbo developer's site, on the main page:

"Webjimbo runs a small web server on your Mac. This means that wherever you are, you have access to your Yojimbo notes, bookmarks and everything else as long as you're at a computer with an internet connection.

Say you run Yojimbo at home: now that important information's available to you at work or from an internet cafe. You can add and edit items too, so you can record information as it comes to hand. When you're at home, you just use Yojimbo as usual."

its a web server customized specifically to share Yojimbo data. You use a web browser from another computer to access your Yojimbo data remotely, even add new notes. There are some limitations, but the developer lists those pretty clearly on the site.

I'm not sure where your confusion came in as far as what this application does. Take more time to read about what the app is trying to do before downloading it.

Personally, I'm looking forward to an iPhone optimized interface, if we see some traction in that area, then I think the developer would start seeing a lot more license registrations.

I'm really enjoying this app so far. I've wanted some way to access my Yojimbo library remotely for a while. The current imterface seems to be a bit awkward on the iPhone, but the dev says there is an iphone specific interface on the way, which is even more exciting.

Ive only been using it for a few hours.
