Hands On: Hazel 3.3.5 (OS X)

04/24, 4:24pm

Power file sorting tool that should be on every Mac

You don't hear enough about Hazel from Noodlesoft. Its simplest description is that it automatically does things for you to do with files and folders, it moves and renames and sorts them. Unfortunately, one reason you don't hear enough about it is that once you've set it up, you never have to think about it again. It just keeps right on doing its stuff.

It's also a shame for you, because you genuinely forget that it's there when you could be using it for more and more.
