    Ian Hardy of the BBC: “It’s a little-known fact that in the computer world, the word “Tags” stands for Totally Awesome Gathering System. Actually, it’s a little-known fact because I just made it up after spending a few weeks delving into the mini industry of desktop productivity, particularly the organisation of documents, spreadsheets, emails, images […]

    “It is just amazing, how seamlessly Leap is integrating with Mavericks. The one thing, which Leap could not handle so far – tagging during the file saving process is now handled by Mavericks. And Leap now is even a more powerful tool for search, retrieval and major tagging jobs. Great job!” A more natural way. […]

  • Fresh


    Fresh was born on that sinking feeling we have whenever we head into the Finder to ‘Find’ that file that we are working on, just downloaded, or like to keep handy. Fresh is designed to hide itself when you are not using it – keeping your onscreen clutter of windows more managable. Note that although […]

Yep and Fresh have dramatically changed every workflow I have. I use those two apps exclusively for document management, and they’re amazing. If you ever need a spokesman, I’ll do it for free!

Leap Yep Fresh  Deep (OS X 10.9 or later) 

macOS Sierra, Yosemite, Mavericks, tags and more.

All of Ironic’s applications set tags using industry standard tagging conventions. We are pleased to announce that Apple has finally ‘caught the tagging fever’. On 10.9 all ironic product use these new tags, while still setting tags that can be seen by anyone using 10.7 or later. Apple continues to improve the use of tags with macOS.

Our products are definitely not only about tagging, though. Take Leap for instance. With it you can show all the images on your hard drive in seconds, and use its folder list and searching to find that photoshop or png that went missing last week.  We don’t know how people who work on their Mac all day can do without Fresh – which is a search tool and ‘file dock’ that makes sense.

Professional workflow

Ironic’s applications support your creative workflow. Yep shows you all your office related documents, Fresh allows you to use your most important and recent documents when you need them – without switching to the Finder. Leap is a ninja quality explorer useful for adept professionals of all types, from creative to developers. Deep allows you to search through all the images on your computer for ones that ‘match’ any other photo – great for finding images that work well together.

Apple’s App Store and Ironic’s Store

Ironic supports two ways to buy its products. You can buy through the Mac App Store, or through our own store, run by FastSpring. The downloadable copies of our programs can be licensed by purchasing a license from the Ironic Store. This licence is more suited for some business applications, as it does not require a Mac App Store account.
