Tagging software

Although I am hoping to expand this section of the site to be easily filtered and searched (and hopefully more interactive), currently this is just a list of all the tagging software for Mac OS X that I know of. If you think something is missing from the list, please let me know! I’m expanding the list all the time as I find new software.

The Spotlight utilities at the end of the list are not tagging software, per se, but can easily be used to roll your own tagging system using Spotlight comments.
