ShoveBox for Mac1.7.6

29 October 2009

Menubar item to store text, images, URLs, and more.

What is ShoveBox for Mac

ShoveBox catches all those little scraps of information that you can't act on now but would rather not forget. It sits up in your menubar, waiting for you to drag in text, images, urls, and more.

It makes it incredibly easy to get data in. Just drag it in from near any program, or use QuickJot to type it out before you have a chance to forget.

When you come up for air, ShoveBox also provides a sensible interface to sort everything you shoved during the day. And by setting up powerful importing rules, you can drastically reduce the thinking you'll have to do later.

It's all about spending less time processing and more time actually doing things.

What's new in ShoveBox

Version 1.7.6:
  • More robust iPhone syncing
  • Fixed issue where custom keyboard shortcuts could be lost when upgrading the app
  • Added "Export all" context menu item for folders in organizer.
  • Interface enhancements

Still working on El Capitan too. Great for saving whole web archives to read offline. I don't know if there's a simpler way to use it, but I have to drag the url to ShoveBox Inbox to capture the web archive. Is there a way to automate this via Hot Keys?

ShoveBox 1.7.6 is still working on OS X 10.10.5. The only problem I experience is that sometimes I must click on the ShoveBox icon in the menu bear before it will accept a drop of dragged text.

Even though there hasn't been an update to this app in five years, it still works and I still use it (on 10.9.3). In fact, I love this little app. It just sits there in the menubar and whenever I want to save something - a link, a snippet of text - it's as easy as clicking the "shove" action script on my browser's bookmark bar. Best of all, it's not integrated with some annoying cloud syncing system! Shovebox is a 5 star app but because of the lack of support, it get's 4 (Wonder Warp's website was down for a long time, now at least there's evidence that the developers are still among the living). I'd really like to see this app revived. It could use an aesthetic overhaul and possibly include some new features (maybe a good clipboard manager? Or perhaps better support for shoving images? Maybe a way to integrate it with online shopping to do price comparisions?).

Shenanigans. Shareware is dead. I paid $25 for this software. For comparison I paid $30 for Mountain Lion. Now a lot of the code in Mountain Lion has been recycled, but that's the point. We benefit when software is kept up to date and features are enhanced or added for incremental payments (like paying rent). What benefit do the customers who support small software companies like Wonder Warp get when they abruptly stop developing software that we have paid for. There is an implicit contract when we support these people and that has been abused by so many shareware authors. There is no restitution for us. Shareware authors are abusing our support. You purchase from Apple or Adobe or another company and you know your money is going into future development that will benefit you. It's the behavior of modern shareware authors that is destroying the concept of shareware (and also the thieves/insects that suck the life force out of software development). I have a list of licenses for purchased shareware that are no longer developed. Hundreds of dollars invested,,,, lost because the developers changed the name of the software while reusing/recycling the code or stopped developing it altogether. From now on it's freeware or companies with long track records of providing updates or upgrade paths for their customers.

Guys, tell me what you want, no other apps can compete with this little gem when you're making proper interner researches, JUST AS EXAMPLE! And it's not a shame at all, just A PITY that the developers haven't time to add some enhancements that I would like to suggest them but... it's A (fantastic!) FREEWARE which works still perfectly and times are hard for anyone... we must accept it! I believe that if it would be sold for a very little price and developed continuously looking at it's peculiar very fast use and user friendliness, it would be a much larger used 'must have'!

This is a very nice app for small note-taking, much less heavy in RAM than DevonThink or Evernote. I rely on the latter for serious document copying and indexing, but for everyday notes you can then discard easily, Shovebox is the best app i have tested. Three regrets (by descending order of importance): The proprietary format of the database means entries don't show up in Spotlight and you can actually "lose" data by forgetting it was in SB. The weird "update" behavior (I had to figure out where to locate my "old" database before deleting it myself -- otherwise the updated software could not read the new database. The lack of export format options.

The quickjot function is the only reason I keep using this app. Like others have said it appears to have been abandoned. I contacted the developer about improving their sync to use Dropbox or Simplenote as exporting from Shovebox is messy. They said thanks for the suggestion & thats it. That was months ago. If Evernote used a Quickjot style utility I would delete Shovebox. Very disappointed with this developer.

I had been using both ShoveBox and Evernote, debating the pros and cons of each. However, while Evernote continued to advance, the developers apparently gave up on ShoveBox, and that's a shame. Some things it did better than Evernote (and still does), but I would not invest my time, energy, or data into software that appears to be abandoned.

There are a number of free notepad applications, like MemoBlock and Voodoo Pad, but for around $30, you can use ShoveBox, which brings usability to a new level. A pull-down menu (and/or keyboard shortcuts) give you access to notes or media capture; they disappear from your desktop by pressing ESC. I'm a big fan of pull-down organizers, and this one is quick and easy to use. I'd prefer it if QuickJot Text and Text Note would be combined in one, but for ease and functionality, this is a nice application.

Just started using it with 10.5.8, and I really like it so far. However, one neat (and for me, very valuable) feature -- the "Shove This" button that can be placed in your browser -- is buggy: It enables you to create a bookmark and send it to ShoveBox, but the result is unreadable. So, when you return to it subsequently, you have no way of knowing what page the bookmark is for.

While I love the functionality of Shovebox (simple menubar app, quick jot, capture from iSight, etc.) I detest its interface. It makes it so easy to get stuff into the app, but then loathsome to be able to view it. As far as I can tell there is no keyboard shortcut to actually open the note, clicking on its name makes it viewable some of the time and edits the name some of the time. Selecting the note really should make the note visible underneath or in a separate pane instead of a separate window. Even though I paid for a licence and prefer its functionality over Evernote's, I've switched to Evernote as it has a much better interface and way of actually interacting with your notes.

Great app, terrible support. Shovebox really is superb at what it does - simple, elegant, makes life at the Mac a lot simpler. The iPhone app is terrific, too, and for me the main reason to have the app. It means you can easily carry your docs, notes and snippets with you to catch up on when you're away from your screen. But - and it's a fairly big one - Wonder Warp's support is just lousy. Some time ago the two apps stopped synching. They would start, apparently talk to each other fine for several minutes, then cut out for no apparent reason. I contacted WW via their website almost two months ago, with no reply. There seemed to be some problem at the site. Emails eventually got a reply saying they would be in touch “in a few days”. That was six weeks ago, and despite follow-up emails there has been nothing since. This is close to being the worst support I've ever come across for a a Mac app - and I've used hundreds of them. A real shame, and means I‘ve given up using the app, as this synching ability was its main use in my case (which, of course, it won't be for many). So, highly recommended, but be aware you may be risking your money if you ever need support. Unless others have better stories to tell...

Downloaded from MacHesit nanobundle too. This application is basically an menubar-item application that works like QuickSilver, ByteControl, Synergy, etc. I really very love this idea of system integration and global hotkey access. It let me quickly log and access scraps when working in other application. However, the data storage ability of ShoveBox is limited. This application works only with data that can be copy-pasted through clipboard, and Mac OS X native documents like URL bookmark, WebArchive, and PDF. That should be enough for scraps, but when working with some serious applications like Office, it's not enough. It can't store Excel and PowerPoint file into ShoveBox, and Word document will be converted into RTF data. It can't store image files while remaining the original format but the picture-clip, and can't be drag-n-dropped into PowerPoint. ShoveBox is a great application for quick scarps. But it's not the best solution for serious information storage and workflow.

Wow! and double wow! I can't believe how powerful this is. It is such an optimum tool to quickly capture the main types of information such as text, images, bookmarks, web pages, pdf. This tool even shows up in the service menu and print to pdf menu and these are but a few of the ways to get the same thing done: shove important information. And syncing with the mobile app on your iPod touch or iPhone is a perfect example of how it should be done. The author mentions that Spotlight will soon search any captured text file in ShoveBox. Well triple wow!

Of all the apps that provide a way to organize the clutter of the desktop, this is the easiest to get the data into it, and the only one that provides an "Inbox" so I can go back to it later to sort things into subfolders. More features like subfolders and a keyboard shortcut to take a screenshot and paste the result directly into shovebox would be welcome. It is also lacking an export option.

This is one of those amazing little apps where you sit back and tell yourself "man, this is just what I've been looking for". I find myself dragging and dropping stuff in shovebox all day long and then I organize it at the end of the day. Give it a spin, you'll be buying a license. Props to the developer.

I have grown to depend on ShoveBox to keep myself organized. I own both the desktop version and the iPhone version. It does everything it should do and more.I am totally happy with both versions of the program. Because I am a well-organized individual, I need something I can depend on. Before discovering ShoveBox, I used EverNote and even paid for the pro version. I bought ShoveBox because I had issues with EverNote being "down" too much for my tastes and because I had to refresh EverNote for the iPhone each time I wanted to see the latest version of my note. This does not happen with ShoveBox because syncs are performed between the desktop & iPhone versions directly instead of going through a cloud, so to speak. EVEN BETTER, I upgraded to Mac OS X 10.5.7 last night which produced a syncing conflict. I wrote to the developer about 7 PM CDT. He replied almost immediately telling me he was working on a fix. When I got up this morning, he had already developed a fix. That was quick! This developer obviously takes pride in his work. I recommend this program to anyone.

Great app for syncing notes and files between my iPod touch and my Mac. Was waiting for a great combo and have now finally found it! Syncing is good. Just open the iPhone app and it automatically syncs. App just sits in the menu bar on the Mac, so it's very unobtrusive. And the app looks great on iPod and on the Mac. The developer is friendly too!

What can I say? It is the best. I have tried using other applications such as DEVONthink, and they are just to large and bulky to be running all the time. ShoveBox has a low profile even on my iMac G5 with 512MB of RAM. Quick-jot is very useful for saving small snippets of text or notes I may have written down somewhere in a document. I was a big user of Stickies in OS 9, and it really has not been the same for me since OS 9. I could compare this to Stickies. Hotkeys make it efficient on screen usage, so I don't have additional windows open that I don't need. The mobile app is a great companion, so I can take my brain with me, and organization and searching is a breeze with the ability to set up smart rules on what you are importing. I often save a url as a web archive so I can read it later, I have smart rules set up to check the URL if it is from a news site, if it is, ShoveBox saves that to a different folder from my normal web archive dump folder. Very good app, I highly recommend it.

Great little application. It works well but it has some minor quirks I'd like to see addressed: - I'd like to be able to change the folder icons. - I'd love to be able to sort the folders and create sub folders. - Icons are weak and blah. Again, those are the minor issues I have with the app. Overall it's very good. It's snappy quick and seems to be very stable. And I love the simplicity of it. I'm a Yojimbo user, I'd like to switch to ShoveBox full time but the thought of transferring a thousand Yojimbo clips into ShoveBox is holding me back.

Was a bit hesitant at first, have tried many similar apps with varying amount of bells and whistles, but in the end simplicity and a well thought out interface won me over. The demo was brilliant by allowing a set amount of notes/bookmarks/pdf and not silly x amount of days limitations that many other products have. Had a small issue with ShoveBox that the developer solved for me within one day. Great app, great support, truly recommended.

i was just about to say "nice app" when I noticed how much RAM this app uses, as well as hitting the 'windowserver' for an equal amount of RAM .... and it keeps growing the more you use it. It also crashed a couple of times during searches, and you cannot set your default window sizes and location ....new notes keep popping up in the left side of your screen which is annoying.

What's the point of New Text Notes that can't be inputed with notes? While experimenting, I created 7 Untitled Notes that appear in the menu bar's Recent Entries but not in the Inbox. Now my Inbox is empty, after filing my clippings, yet the menu bar's Recent Entries still list those 7 Untitled Notes. And must I really drag a filed clipping from the Inbox to the desktop just to view it? -- Not to mention having to first select Organize... from the menu bar's menu to access the Inbox when it remains listed in the menu bar's Recent Entries list?

Looks good. But in order to be truly usable it needs better export options. Namely - you should be able to "take out" your daily clippings all at once or by folder, in their native format, preserving their creation date. Currently you can only export one item at a time.

There are plenty of snippet-keepers and junk drawers already... BUT ShoveBox has something special, at least for the way I use things: a hotkey which brings up a notepad. Often when working on something I have a quick idea for something else. Open a new document, type, save, try to remember where/when to open it again? Nah. Open a new APP, ditto? Nah, x2. Hit a key combo, make note, hit enter? YES. And the notes are all there -- along with anything dragged onto the ShoveBox icon -- at the end of the day when I clean up my desk. (Or ::should:: clean up my desk.) It's a great little feature of real workflow benefit. As for the bigger-scale features -- I agree that a preview pane is really important for the future of this app. But the other stuff... well, I'd say that ShoveBox is really a temporary sort of InBox; a dumping ground or halfway-house for stuff en route to a more permanent home or to the trash ("Why on earth did I think ::that:: was worth clipping this morning...?) so permanent-storage features aren't that vital IMO. It's the QuickJot that does it for me. Well worth the $ for that alone.

I want to like Shovebox, but some missing features and small interface/usage oversights have so far prevented me from doing so. - Desperately needs a preview pane. - Images dropped in via Safari do not retain the image's filename. - Not enough keyboard shortcuts - Needs Smart Folders, or at least the default filetype, label & flagged items smart folders. - Not essential, but .Mac sync would be nice. I had emailed the dev about some of these issues, and he seemed a good guy and open to suggestions, but I have yet to see anything implemented. Shovebox is almost there, but the workflow, while I was demoing the app, just got in my way. And I think this is just the kind of app where the surface simplicity should be belied by a powerful, well thought out and intuitive workflow behind the scenes. Hoping for a revamped 1.2 release. This app has promise.

$25 for what a set of finder folders within a folder will accomplish ? What some people will pay hard cash for is amazing.

This is a nice app but I just noticed a nasty glitch in 1.0.3 on an Intel Mac Mini under 10.5. Resizing any document display window results in strange freeze/crash 100% of the time.

I know there are a lot of apps out there in the market, but there is something to say for this app's simplicity. I love having it in the menubar and not in the dock. I'm constantly switching between Yojimbo and DevonThink, so this app is a nice mediator for the two apps. Doesn't use up a lot of memory and easy to use for filing all my random craziness. I tested the app and decided in a couple of hours to buy it. Not to mention the MacSanta discount that's going on.

Don't get me wrong, I think this is a nice app and it looks pretty well done, but how come nobody is looking at the market anymore? How many more of those apps do we need? Really. There's nothing new that this application brings to the market, it's just another one of the already 3456 superfluous information collection thingy apps. If they'd only did synching via .Mac they'd still have a change to compete, but alas they prefer to be completely left dead in the water by Yojimbo and SOHOnotes. My tip if you don't to synching don't write yet another note taker/information collector app. There are enough, really. Unless you can beat Journler by a mile (that one's free) you'll have a hard time selling.

This is a great app! A mini-PIM that keeps out of the way and does its job really well! The developer is very friendly and seems to have a lot of ShoveBox-plans for the future.

Makes a great and simple quick-access utility for keeping items available that you need to use soon. I own Yojimbo, too, which I love, but is so packed with things and features for long-term keeping that it doesn't have the same uses. I really like this one and look forward to seeing where it goes.

For the money, I think Yojimbo is a much richer solution for snippets and the like.

This looks to be a great solution to gathering snippets. Best I've seen yet. However, before I lay out my money, I'd like to see: 1) instead of having to copy (Cmd-C) and then hit the key combo to paste into ShoveBox, there needs to be a way for ShoveBox to just capture the selected text directly. 2) Fix exporting. Choosing export command takes me through the steps, but nothing gets exported. No file; no nothin.
