Collect notes, e-mails, and Web pages on your Mac, and search them instantly. EagleFiler makes organizing and 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 familiar 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 in a nutshell:

* With a single keypress, import Web pages, mail messages, or any file on your Mac.

* EagleFiler stores them in an open format: regular files and folders that are fully accessible to your other applications.

* Optionally: encrypt the files, add tags, notes, color-coded labels, and other metadata.

* Browse by folder or by tag, or use the live search or smart folders to find the information you need (faster than Spotlight).

* View, edit, or create documents directly in EagleFiler's streamlined interface, or double-click to edit using another application.

EagleFiler is a digital filing cabinet, a research assistant, snippet collector, and document organizer. You can use it to write a journal, track all the files for a project or job, manage your bookmarks, save your favorite Web articles, store financial statements and receipts, 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, sort photos, gather legal case notes, or assemble a scrapbook. It’s the most flexible tool on your Mac.

“It’s a vital tool for the digital pack rat.…The application’s tagging, note-taking, and searching capabilities make finding that one file you stored in EagleFiler a year ago and want to retrieve today a cinch.” —Macworld

“EagleFiler combines ease of use with an underlying ingenuity that makes it feel simple, fast, and lightweight. It’s packed with too many clever touches for me to list.” —TidBITS

“Using EagleFiler, I can now stop fussing with organization tools and just get myself organized.” —InformationWeek

What’s New

Version 1.9.5

- Worked around a macOS change that caused EagleFiler to crash at launch.

- The capture key now works with the Iron and Orion Web browsers and with beta and developer versions of Microsoft Edge.

- Improved the speed of the records list on macOS 11 when lots of e-mail messages are selected.

- The "Copy Source URL" command now puts the record title on the pasteboard, in addition to the URL, e.g. so that the title is preserved if you paste into Safari's Bookmarks window.

- The Evernote importer is better at recognizing files that should be extracted as separate files rather than imported as text attachments.

- Improved the speed of extracting message files from mailboxes by reducing Spotlight overhead.

- The Copy command is much faster when lots of e-mail messages are selected.

- Worked around a macOS 11 issue where sometimes a custom folder icon or emoji tag abbreviation in the source list would be drawn as if the window were in the background, when it wasn't. Also, they no longer dim when the window is only behind an inspector or another application's floating window, such as OmniFocus's Quick Entry.

- Made a change to prevent macOS from allowing the volume containing an open library to be ejected.

- Fixed a regression where built-in items in the source list could be incorrectly shown as editable.

- Fixed some regressions when renaming in the source list. Pressing Esc now discards the edit in progress. Changes are saved when you click away or close the window, not just when you press Return or Tab. In-progress changes are no longer lost when a background change occurs.

- Fixed a bug where PDF attachments in RTFD files could become invisible when using the "RespectImageDPI" esoteric preference.

- Fixed a bug where an internal error could occur when resizing images in an RTFD file for display.

- Fixed a bug where merging mailboxes or message files could import the new mailbox as the wrong type of file if one of the source files had an extension in its filename.

- Fixed an internal error validating the records list for deletion.

Clever and versatile

My primary reason for buying this was to safely archive my email in case Apple Mail mangles my old messages during a macOS upgrade. But it’s obviously useful for many more organizational needs. This is not the easiest software to learn, so I used the 30-day free trial from the website to take time with the online manual and understand how it works. After only a week or two of testing with my files, I decided this was a definite BUY. The only reason I dropped a star is that it is not the most intuitive software to learn, but it will reward those who stick with it and study it.

Tags with Spaces!

Woo hoo, tag can finally have spaces!

I haven’t tested it yet, but the app shoud finally play nicely with my existing files (which was a major annoyance for me in the last version).

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the feedback. Now that tags are a native macOS feature, you make a great point that EagleFiler tags should work the same way. As of EagleFiler 1.8.2, they do.

EagleFiler is the best of the bunch.

I am a big fan of EagleFiler and suggest you read my review of version 1.5.3 which you will find under the "All Versions" tab. Suffice it to say that I have purchased and tried almost every application in this class and found all of the others lacking in some significant way. For me, EagleFiler stands alone as the one that meets all of my needs. With this most recent version (1.5.4) I would like to add one new point I forgot to mention in my earlier review: C-Command Software is very active about polishing and improving this product. Look at the list of "What's New in 1.5.4" above and you will see a pattern of great attention to detail. Don't let the price of EagleFiler scare you away. This is the best of the bunch and worth the money.
