I just bought Gemini. £3 has just saved me a major ball ache of clearing out loads of duplicate photos and music. It struggled with some of my .mov files but not too many that I can't manually delete them. In first scan it found 4gb of duplicate photos I didn't realise I had!

I know. At $80, it's a big jump to take. I think they'd do well to lower the price and snag a lot more potential adopters, but whatever. I use OmniFocus so much it's worth it to me, but I can see a lot of people not wanting to risk that much money if they're not sure they'll like it.


Omnifocus 2 will have 2 pricing tiers, the standard at $40 and the premium (adds scripting I think) for $80. Good move on their part.

Picked up Daisy Disk and 1Password. Have been very happy with both purchases. Daisy disk is really good at finding those chunky files or folders on your Mac that you can offload onto an external drive. Sometimes I forget about things and leave them in some obscure folder. Or there is some weird giant cache file that accumulates over time that I can dump. On a 512GB SSD I'm always trying to keep things tidy. Lots of huge PSDs, InDesign packages, photographs, 1080p Premiere projects—that need to move off and be archived.

1Password seems cool. I recently purchased the new version on my iPhone/iPad and loved that the Mac one synced right up. I have probably a hundred logins overseeing so many web and social media properties at Mizzou in addition to my freelance sites, customer sites, and all the banking information. 1Password is a huge improvement over my TextEdit file…yeah not gonna talk about that except to say that my Mac hard drive is encrypted…but still. It was the wrong choice. Apparently if you get 1Password now you'll get a free upgrade to 4.0 when it comes out sometime soon. My only gripe is that the Mac version isn't as slick as the iPhone version. So crossing my fingers for 4.0!

I've had Gemini for a while. Recommend it—at the end of senior year in college I had a mess of files on my hands spread across nearly 6TB of hard drives, a brand new Retina MBP I needed to transfer things to, and a lot of free time on my hands while I looked for a job and did freelance gigs. Gemini was a big help in sorting through the mess. I eventually got everything back in place and could confidently delete my thousands of redundant files. I often forget to clear things out when I backup my drives—especially while in school I would dump things here and there. I have a pretty rigid system now of folder organization and Carbon Copy Cloner automatically sends everything from my USB 3.0 external to a slower USB 2.0 external for archiving every Sunday. I dump things off throughout the week and it emails me when the backup is made. Very efficient system! So I find myself using Gemini less. But it was an essential tool to finally becoming organized.

So yeah, if your use case sounds similar to mine then don't hesitate to pick these up. Great bargains on quality software. Glad to see the Mac App Store finally starting to fill up with such good stuff!

Anyone have Home Inventory 2 and what do they think of it? I'm on the fence deciding between this app and Compartments. I like how Home Inventory comes with a companion iOS app and the ability to include things like receipts and digital manuals for your stuff.


I have both, I find Compartments is too basic. I like Home Inventory a lot. The only issues I've had is when wi-fi connection is bad during photo taking (using the iOS app) everything is lost for the current entry (e.g. if you're taking several photos for one entry). In those cases I have resorted to taking photos using photo app, and then doing the Inventory on my MBP manually adding in the photos.

I have both Home Inventory and Compartments and the availability of the iOS app helped swing me to HI. The interface is easy and it does the job I need it to do.
