HoudahSpot 4.2

Powerful search tool for Mac OS X. Find files. Fast!
 
4.2.3 (See all)

HoudahSpot is an advanced file search tool. It builds upon Spotlight, which comes preinstalled with OS X. It makes Spotlight both more powerful and easier to use.
HoudahSpot provides a clear and structured interface that focuses on file search. It gets you to your files as quickly as possible.

* Find files by name, text, content kind, author, recipient, pixel count, etc.

* Combine criteria to narrow down search results

* Specify which folders to search and which ones to exclude

* Add any of the hundreds of columns available

* Apply filters to reduce search results to only the relevant items

* Preview files and text matches

* Open files and, where the application supports it, continue searching for text matches by pressing command-G (Find Next)

HoudahSpot is indispensable to unearth hard-to-find files. It also works great as a replacement to the default Spotlight interface.

If you've ever had a hard time finding a file before, this is what you've been looking for.
