TagSpaces Reviews

Nice but not adapted to big number of files

Really promising software but...

I fill it with 7658 files and then add some custom tags on 2 files. The software started to be really slow and consume more than 1GByte of RAM.

The tag search function seems to work only on current selected folder and there is no recursion. Not really usefull in my opinion

A lot of good ideas but not able to handle thousands of files.

It is true that TagSpaces slows down quite a bit when it's given a folder with many files. However, be patient; it's cataloging the folder contents and will eventually emerge victorious. At least that has been my experience.

It's not just a photo manager (like Picasa), or just a local wiki (like Zim), but does photos, text-files and saved web snippets. In that sense it's closer to Evernote than Picasa, but local and focused on tagging files rather than taking notes. That it does all that does not seem to get in the way of only using it for photos.

Tags are saved in the filename, I do not like this.

This is very subjective, but I think it looks very good. That does not mean the interface is good, quite the opposite. There are keyboard shortcuts, but it's very lacking or non-obvious how to do most things easily. Submitting the tag dialog, as far as I can tell you have to either tab like four times or use your mouse rather than something simple like Ctrl+Enter. It also lacks things that are universal and work in almost all programs like click, shift-click to select a range. These are just examples; TagSpaces lacks important controls or it does have them but they're counter-intuitive, either way, poor UX.

Already looking for something else.

I like the concept of TagSpaces, and it does do what it promises, But I feel like the UI is horrendous. It's like a direct port of a cell phone app interface. Not sure if it was designed to work for people with touch screens, or if it's just made this way to be "cool."
