HoudahSpot 4.3

HoudahSpot is a powerful file search tool. Use HoudahSpot to locate hard-to-find files and keep frequently used files within reach.

HoudahSpot will immediately feel familiar. It works just the way you expect search to work. Start with a simple search. Refine it by adding and combining criteria. Browse search results. Add columns. Preview files and text matches. Pick the files you really need.
  • 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)
  • Set up templates for recurring searches

HoudahSpot builds upon Spotlight, which comes preinstalled with OS X. It helps you find the files you need:
  • Mails about a CV or resumé received this year
  • Word processing files containing the word "invoice" or "estimate"
  • Image files named "logo" more than 512 pixels wide
  • Files created, modified or opened within the last 7 days


Version 4.3:
  • Improved performance. Faster scrolling. Faster refresh when files change
  • Easy file tagging from the contextual menu
  • Improved autocomplete on Finder tags in search and file tagging
  • Improved support for international character sets in text preview
  • Corrections to the German and French language versions
