Tembo 2

The developer of HoudahSpot has a somewhat lighter version, called Tembo. Tembo isn’t quite as powerful as HoudahSpot but also takes more of a guiding role in helping you find your files. For a lot of people it will be just right for improving search on your Mac. This week, they’ve released Tembo 2.0. The application is on sale for $6.99 (usually $15) until the end of the month and worth picking up. There are versions of Tembo 2 in the Mac App Store and directly from the developer’s website. This is one where you are going to want to be sandbox-free so pick it up from the developer directly. 

New features include:

  • Actions: rename, tag, or trash files from search results
  • Sharing: send files by Mail, Messages, Facebook, etc. 
  • File Info window: easy-to-read overview of important file properties
  • View options: font size, date format, grid of icons or previews
  • Menu bar button and global keyboard shortcuts
  • Up to 10,000 results in each group (up from 2,500)
  • Collapsible groups: hide seldomly visited groups
  • Option to hand a search over to HoudahSpot
