Clicking your way through the finder to access a file or folder you frequently use can be tiring and cumbersome. Furthermore Bookmarks or frequently accessed files are distributed around all your favorite programs and not always fast to recover.
Having all your bookmarks from different programs sorted in one central place can give your organized mind the much deserved rest. With Fibo you have instant access to your favorite websites, emails, vCards, songs and videos, files, folders and apps.
How to add Bookmarks
You can add a bookmark by clicking on the small star-icon at the top-right in your Mac OS menu bar and selecting the “Add Bookmark” entry.
Depending on the program that is active and in front, Fibo will add a bookmark to a website (from Safari or Google Chrome), an email (from Mac OS Mail), a vCard (from the Address Book), a song or a video (from iTunes) or files & folders (from the Finder). You can see which program is active at the top left of the Mac OS menu bar.
In order to add vCards, files & folders or emails you have to select the items in your program and click on the “Add Bookmark” entry. You can add multiple vCards, mails or files & folders at once.

By clicking on the small star-icon at the top-right in your Mac OS menu bar you get a list of all your bookmarks you have added so far. In the Fibo Preferences you can sort this list by date, name or popularity (this option sorts the items depending on how often you clicked on them).
When you select a file with the command-key pressed the parent folder of this file will be opened instead of the file itself. If you want to delete a bookmark-item from the list after launching it you can do that by pressing the option-key and selecting the item. This option can be turned on constantly in the Fibo Preferences or by selecting the menu-item “remove bookmark after launch”.
Editing the Bookmark-List
In the Fibo Preferences you can delete and edit your bookmarks. By double-clicking on the title or the count-value of a bookmark you can change the title or the count-value of this bookmark-item.
Fibo will check if a bookmark to a file or folder sill exists every time the list gets reloaded. By activating the option “remove missing files automatically” Fibo will remove entries pointing to a file or folder that doesn’t exist anymore.
To quickly remove a bookmark, press the control-key and click on the specific entry. Preview (jpg).
