Review

EagleFiler is intended to help you manage the information you find more easily. In this respect, the tool allows collecting and archiving data from multiple sources, including email messages, documents, images and web pages. Thus, you can create one or various libraries to which you can import assets, which are then organised into folders and classified with tags.

Good news is that there is nothing complicated about using EagleFiler. In fact, there is a very straightforward way by which you can import practically any bit of info by simply dragging and dropping it onto a sort of floating pad. The application's interface is characterized by using three panes. In this sense, and fortunately, most of the space is devoted to displaying the contents of the object currently selected in the sidebar, which may be a folder or a tag. Likewise, even if you think organizing is a waste of time, there is always the possibility of using the built-in search to find anything in the library.

Fortunately, EagleFiler seamlessly integrates with other macOS tools, specially Finder. So, there is no risk that the contents appear distorted. Similarly, it has the ability to import contents from various websites without affecting the original structure, something that other similar tools may fail to do properly. However, it could still occassionally misinterpret the original characters.

All in all, even when so many features of EagleFiler overlap those already available from Finder, your system's built-in tool, you may want to take advantage of its easier approach to managing information assets, for instance, the use of notes. Unluckily, its price tag is not exactly what I would call reasonable, as you can get similar benefits for a less. However, there is a trial version you can use quite freely.
