Tagging And Organizing Non-Media Files II

Last week I posted that in my opinion there is a general need for applications that do more than just tag music and photos. Tagging that extends to all file types can ease organization not least because searching for files in folders is not always the most efficient.

Therefore it was great to see that Samer @ Freewaregenius has found and reviewed TaggedFrog. In very much the same way and perhaps even better ways TaggedFrog does what I was looking for and perhaps more importantly is being developed and is not abandoned.

It is described by its author as

TaggedFrog allows you to organize your files, documents and Web links. Just add objects to the library and tag them with any keywords. That’s it. You can forget the file name or where the file is located, but don’t worry – the tags will find the file for you.

and it looks good. Although, in general, I think one would prefer to do without a .NET requirement but since Ultrafolder is dead and tag2find runs as a service this is a good and promising alternative.

    In my opinion, running a service is no big deal, I’d rather have a background service hogging a bit of all my extraneous cpu power (come on, dual and quad core is quite common) on one of my cores than have to wait for tags to show up when browsing.

    tag2find has far bigger problems, namely its hideous user interface. Why all the big blue bulky windows? Why not just integrate it as columns and buttons for Windows Explorer, so people can apply their existing theme to it all, and use their own already customized setup?

    You make good points, especially about tag2find’s interface. Integrating tagging within Windows Explorer would be even better, I guess that’s why some want Windows to fully implement tagging natively.
