Welcome. Have more question? Write us, we’re friendly people 🙂

Tabbles is a social data tagging tool, it does:

– Tag files (ultra-fast or automagically) and URLs socially
– Find/group files using virtual folders (tags)
– See files in “Tag A & Tag B” and browse them in virtual file system
Share your tagging with colleagues, on LAN or in the Cloud

 

Who will need it?

Any company of professional who need create and save files (yes, that’s a large target). Her are some user stories.

 

 

Whatâ??s your next step?

We’re working on an API system allowing third parties to develop plugins and interface with Tabbles – along with a number of new features.

Hard facts:

– Founded in 2009, first release in August 2009
– About 30,000 downloads (as of Nov. 2010)
– Business model: selling licenses
– Currently bootstrapping
– The team:  Andrea D’Intino (Sales & Marketing, co-founder), Maurizio Colucci (Developer, co-founder), Irma Sta (Legal-Finance, co-founder), Frans Larsen (Developer)
– Name: from tag + bubble


How does it work?

Tabbles unifies the concepts of file tag and virtual folder: users find files by navigating concepts (not folders).

It builds a layer on top of the file system (it does NOT move/delete/copy files or folders), it saves tagging data in its custom internal database and shares it using shared folders (works fine with cloud storage services).

It’s a desktop app: drag’n’drop, copy’n’paste, keyboard shortcuts work as they should.

 

 

How is this different from:

Windows explorer: it only allows you to store files into regular (hierarchical) folders.
Google desktop: it reads through files and tries and guess what they’re about. Tabbles works with user-given input, therefore the results of search are much more precise.
Windows 7 Libraries: they allow the user to group and show the content of several folders at once. Tabbles creates a virtual files which is unrelated to folders and user can combine “concepts” to see the data they have in common.

 

Tech features?

Tabbles is written entirely in F# and WPF. The data is stored in a proprietary server-less database, a simple XML file which typically doesn’t grow larger than a few MB.
