EagleFiler makes managing your information easy. It lets you archive and search mail, Web pages, PDF files, word processing documents, images, and more. Use it to collect information from a variety of sources. Browse different types of files using a standard three-pane interface. Organize them into folders and annotate them with tags and notes, or leave everything in one folder and pin-point the information you need using the live search. Since EagleFiler stores its library in Finder format, you can use it in concert with the other tools in your Mac ecosystem.

EagleFiler is a digital filing cabinet, a research assistant, and a snippet collector. You can use it to write a journal, track all the files for a project or job, save your favorite Web articles, store financial statements, run a paperless office, plan a trip, collect your course notes, archive your e-mail correspondence, search mailing list archives, research a purchase, remember recipes to cook or books to read, store scientific papers, gather legal case notes, or assemble a scrapbook. It’s the most flexible tool on your Mac.

I own all of the competition and choose to use this.

A key attraction is that it leverages the Finder and System services without making the files unaccessible. I prefer the usability decisions to those of the Finder. Devonthink is nice, but as an AI professional, their closed lexical matching doesn’t do it for me. I wish EF’s tagging was more robust in the sense of allowing predicates and nets. But EF is better poised to grow in this direction than anyone else.

Strongly recommended! I dropped Yojimbo and DevonThink, and now I am using this masterpiece. The main best features for me are: 1) import is a snap (F1, and it is done!); 2) unlike Yojimbo, which is also an excellent piece of software, in EagleFiler you can nest folders in other folders (additionally global search works as perfect as in Yojimbo); 3) the app works on actual files stored in Finder; and last but not least - I can have as many libraries as I want.

This program with mail tags also are the best complements for my job, reccomended!

what is that eagle doing to that file cabinet

There's a lot to like here but the actual implementation isn't robust yet compared to the competitors, KIT or Yojimbo or to a lesser extent DevonThink which offers more features. It freezes and is slow. The ability to include email seems unique and the developer is really good, so well worth monitoring...

This is a nice filing/PIM system. It's somewhere between most entry level clipping programs and something like DevonThink. Simple to use, powerful with a bevy of useful features. This program could probably be Macified a bit as far as appearance, but it includes the important features under the hood that make it feel like it was made by a Mac enthusiast. Very impressive and useful.
