Together 3 one of the better file and data organizers for the Mac

Stuart Gripman | June 28, 2013
Building upon the already excellent Together 2, the new revision adds some compelling capabilities.

In a bid to siphon off customers from competing products, Reinvented Software offers import tools (in a separate download) designed to pull in data from Bare Bones Software's Yojimbo (4.0-mouse rating) and the increasingly common Evernote (4.5-mouse rating). I tested both with a 400-item library and Together imported the data tolerably well. Despite following the instructions to avoid it, I still ended up having to enter my Yojimbo password for each and every encrypted item I imported. Once in Together, all the items were present in the same groupings and tags intact. The Evernote importing tool was dramatically slower than the Yojimbo importer, taking ten minutes to achieve what the former could do in one. Even so, the items came through correctly and it's a whole lot better than retyping.

Bottom line
Together 3 builds on the success of previous versions and remains one of the best executed note and file organizers out there. It's not for those who need to collaborate with other people on a variety of computing platforms, but it'll serve everybody else quite well.
