TagSpaces Comments

Great tool with a catch

Comment by okin
about TagSpaces Aug 2015

It looks good, works well (and on many platforms) but there is one downside that makes me uncomfortable to use it: the tags do not get stored in any kind of database because they are stored in the filename.
This means that every time you tag a file its filename gets changed!
If this is no big deal for you go ahead and give it a shot!


Good alternative to Evernote
