Yojimbo 4 gains sync, but eschews iCloud


Bare Bones Software on Wednesday released Yojimbo 4, which—at long last—adds syncing to the venerable information organizer for OS X.

Yojimbo 4 will allow syncing across multiple Macs. A sync subscription is free for the first 30 days; after that, sync costs $3 per month. The subscription renews automatically, though you can cancel from within the app at any time.

Were Yojimbo to rely upon iCloud, synchronization would be free. But, as the company has noted frequently in the press and on its own website, Bare Bones simply found that iCloud’s sync options for data just weren’t good enough.
