Punakea is a little app trying to help you cope with the day-to-day struggle of managing your files. Designed to complement Spotlight, it allows you to tag your files and bookmarks, freeing you of the strict hierarchy of Finder's folder structure.

A "tag" is like a keyword. Tags can help you to group files which have something in common. You can assign as many tags as you wish to each file.

With its sidebar, it's always accessible with just a flick of the mouse, just drag and drop without any hassle. The tag cloud gives you a perfect view of all your tags.

Customer Reviews

Best tag browsing interface I

I believe tags are a superior way to organize files and digital assets than strictly hierarchical folders. But most tag interfaces are so clunky that the old folder hierarchy is easier to navigate through the UI. Not so it Punakea. They've made an interface so streamlined and easy to use that tags become a viable option.

Am hoping they come out with a Mavericks-tagging-compatible version :-)

Quite amazing

Does what it says!
