I had the pleasure once again of joining David Sparks and Katie Floyd on Mac Power Users episode 390. While we’ve discussed tagging (probably every time I’ve ever been on the show), it’s been years since we dove deeper into the subject.
Things have changed since we all talked back on episode 45. The Files app in iOS 11 has started syncing tags, and that alone is a huge burst of hope for those of us whose primary sticking point was the uselessness of all our tagging efforts once we started doing more on our iPads.
We discussed more about the the state of tagging on Mac and iOS, past, present, and future. We also dug into the “why,” the “how,” and a bit of the “how not” (i.e. mistakes to avoid when developing a tag taxonomy for yourself).
