Tembo Brings A Simple, Organised Spotlight Search Alternative To Your Mac

Mac OS X: Many of Apple's updates to its Spotlight search have been useful, but many (including myself) miss the simplicity of search in previous generations of the OS. Tembo brings back that simplicity to making finding your files easier.

.via_bubble {width: 210px; border: none; -moz-border-radius: 5px; -webkit-border-radius: 5px; border-radius: 4px; background: rgb(70,70,70); color: rgb(229,232,217); text-align: left; padding: 12px; margin: 12px 0 12px 0;} .via_bubble a {color: white;} .via_bubble img {border: none;}

There is not much to Tembo that you won't find on the surface. It's a very simple search application. So why use it instead of Spotlight? It offers a better interface, great organisation, and useful filters to help you find what you're looking for.

Personally, I tend to avoid searching for documents because I find Spotlight's organisation and excessive results to be a little overwhelming. Tembo's interface makes it really easy to get a grasp on your Mac's search results. It is simply better organised, plus it makes searching remote volumes very straightforward. Also, it will search your System and Library folders without any workarounds, which is a great timesaver when you're looking for a particular system file and don't want to search each library individually.

Overall, Tembo is going to be useful if you want a better, simpler Spotlight. It's a free beta app that you can download right now.
