Bare Bones software – Yojimbo

Yojimbo has earned a lot of fans for Bare Bones software. It’s a nice app for the Mac and probably has many uses as there are users – because there are countless ways to organize notes, clippings, passwords, in fact any kind of information.

Sadly there’s no iPhone version. Two years after the iPhone launched the Bare Bones site FAQ simply implies “don’t count on it”. I imagine there are plenty of challenges around syncing the database (maybe use Mobile Me?) so I’m not saying it’s easy, but now I’m looking for an alternate solution as I really want this kind of app sync’d on iPhone and Laptop. Surely there is a revenue stream in the iPhone App store waiting for them, as people are prepared to pay $39 for the desktop version of Yojimbo.

Yojimbo will sync (via Mobile Me) across multiple computers, but I would like it on my phone. There’s also a product called Webjimbo for this need – but you have to leave your Mac turned on – which is not ideal.
