It's free not $35, not $18, free, period. I needed a tagger, this app tags, nuff said. On a side note, I wish there was a better way for me to visually tag my bookmarks. Oh wait, I have Evernote. Not as quick, but again, it's free and it works. I'm happy.

I only write this because the developer touts the "much nicer icon" as a feature of the new version: From a design standpoint, I've always felt that an application icon has failed if it includes the name of the app.

Think of icons as Superhero symbols. Batman doesn't have "Batman" written across his chest -- he has a bat silhouette in a yellow oval. Green Lantern has the lantern logo. Flash has his lightning bolt. Superman -- okay, he has a big "S", but the design is so distinctive that you could change the letter and it would still be recognized as a variation on his logo. Aquaman, of course, has his... er... oh who cares about Aquaman? (and doesn't that just make the point?)

All that being said, Tagit is a good program. ;-)

Excellent write up of the importance of non-name iconography, I completely agree!

Analogies are by definition imperfect but I find yours unusually so.

As someone who routinely uses any of hundreds of apps, seeing the application name on the icon is a huge visual assist.

There are but a finite and small number of superheroes but thousands upon thousands of applications.

I think the logo looks fine, but of even greater importance, at least to me, is that I don't have to guess what the application it represents is. In design, form follows function and less is almost always more.

Appreciate the developer's efforts here.

In this case it DOES show what it does because a tag is a tag with words labelling an object.

Graphically it is a bit dull but it works. Perhaps the hard drive is irrelevant as it labels files. Drives just have A name period.

This is a very good little app for searching tagged files. But I find it somewhat cumbersome dragging and dropping files on its icon in order to tag them, so I don't use it for that. Instead, a better solution for me is to tag files in DefaultFolder X's saving dialog when creating them. For existing files I use another excellent little gem: Tagger. Here is the link to it: http://hasseg.org/tagger/. With Tagger, I simply select any number of files, launch it and tag away! Quick and easy.

Because Tagger also uses the OpenMeta system, you'll be able to search files using Tagit. I don't quite like the idea of having two different application for tagging and searching files. But until Tagit offers an easier, better alternative to drag and drop, I'll stick with both. On the other hand, if Tagger incorporates searching capabilities, it would currently be a better choice in my opinion.

This is a very simple, but very useful app. Most importantly it uses OpenMeta (which they first developed), which means the metadata tags and ratings are usable by many other new tagging apps. I use Tagit along with the awesome Openmeta tagging plugin for Quicksilver, allowing very fast tagging and retrieving across applications.

This software is the best in my trials so far. No crashes, good integration with spotlight. Needs more work on tag management though.

Works well for tagging and searching with Spotlight - much better than Spotlight comments. Nice interface! I'm glad to see an opensource solution to the tagging problem - hopefully some other devs will pick it up.

However, it would be nice to be able to delete tags that are no longer in use, and it would be great if Tagit could somehow scan and identify similar tags made by other tagging software (Tags comes to mind).

I finally gave up on Spotlight Comments about a year ago. They were just too unreliable. The underlying unix tools would report one thing and the Finder another!

Openmeta sounds like Spotmeta, any relation? Anyhow extended attributes is probably the best way forward. If this tagging solution is reliable it will be a nice complement to hierarchical folders and fill an important need. I'm certainly gonna give it a go.

I found this little app and started using it to help me catalog all the files on my drives. I like it because it does one thing and does it well. The price is also right!

My favorite feature, the drop zone on the right side of the screen was my favorite feature ( which appears to have been removed from version 1.1). It allowed you to drag a file to it and add tags. You can do the same by dragging an item to the icon, but I like the tab better.

This app has a lot of promise and I look forward to watching it develop. I would suggest they change the preferences to allow the drop zone to be turned on or off so that everyone is happy.

Does anybody know if its possible to delete tags from the tag list? How do you do it? I created a tag that I won't ever use by mistake and I can't figure out how to delete it.
