Cross-platform file tagging, annotation and finding

  • Organize your photos, ebooks, music, recipes or invoices in the same way on almost every operating system. We currently support Windows, Linux, Mac OS and Android.
  • With the help of tags you can do research better or you can manage your personal projects and todo lists.
  • The application persists the tags in the file names. As a consequence, this meta information is not vendor locked and can be used even without TagSpaces. The absence of a database, makes syncing of the tag meta information easy across different devices with cloud services like Dropbox. In the PRO version we have added an alternative way for tagging based on sidecar files.
  • TagSpaces features basic file management operations, so it can be used as simple file manager supporting file tagging. In the PRO version you can in addition assign tags to folder and annotate files and folders with markdown.
