iTunes for the rest of your files

Chikoo provides folders, lists and smart lists to help you keep files of your choice neatly organized. It is up to you what you wish to organize; it could be your PDF files, movies, images—anything.

Custom attributes

In Chikoo, you can choose your own attributes. This is a very powerful feature that allows you to adapt Chikoo to your own needs, and is best explained by two examples:

  • One of our users uses Chikoo to organize her books; she classifies them by author, ISBN, publisher, publisher’s location, and year of publication.
  • Another of our users uses Chikoo to organize his movies; he chooses to classify them by director, starring actors, and release date.

Custom type groupsnew in 0.9

Chikoo allows you to specify your own type groups. We have no idea what kind of files you wish to organize with Chikoo. Only you can know that. We therefore place this power into your own hands.

Quick Look

Select files and hit the space bar to Quick Look them. If you want to view them further, simply double-click the files to open them the default applications for those files.

Chikoo folder

When you import files into Chikoo, you can either leave them at their current locations or have them moved to the Chikoo folder, which is just a folder in your home folder that looks great with all the other folders in there.
