Simple tagging for Mac

The good thing is that you can store tons and tons of information on your computer. The bad news is that it's not always easy to get that data back when you decide you'd like to look at it again. Descriptive filenames can help, as can clever directory trees. Until you have a document that contains two different pieces of data. Or you have a document that really belongs in two different categories. Now that file name and folder structure isn't going to save you.

Tagit is a tool that lets you tag your files, helping make it easier to find them when you need them. By adding appropriate tags, it's possible that the image file containing that photo you took when visiting the client recently will come up both when you search for Acme Co. as well as when you're looking more generally for pictures from your last road trip. No need to try to juggle multiple versions of files or to have to set up and maintain some complicated cross-reference system of your own.

Tagit is a Mac application. You'll need to be on at least Leopard (OS X 10.5) to use it.
