HoudahSpot - 4.4.1 - Advanced file-search tool

HoudahSpot is a versatile desktop 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 pre-installed with macOS. 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

WHAT’S NEW

Version 4.4.1:

  • Fixes a bug that could cause Quick Look preview to crash

REQUIREMENTS

OS X 10.10 or later , 64-bit processor

 

  • CAN NOT DOWNLOAD: Some probably encounter the following error: This site can’t be reached ...sundryfiles.com’s server IP address could not be found. DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN. In this case, please use Google DNS and you will get rid of trouble.
  • If downloaded file can not be extracted (file corrupted...), please make sure you have downloaded the file completely and don't use Winzip, it sucks! We would recommend using The Unarchiver.
  • By reason, the App does not work and can not be opened. Mostly, just Disable the Gatekeeper, and you get rid of troubles.
