[prMac.com] Luxembourg - Houdah Software today is proud to announce the immediate availability of Tembo 2.0 for OS X Yosemite. Tembo is a super-efficient, organized file search tool. The job of Tembo is to make searching (and finding) of files, mail messages, bookmarks, photos, etc. as easy as possible. Tembo puts the spotlight on your files.
Tembo is a desktop search tool based upon the powerful Spotlight engine. Tembo's strength is its easy to use interface. It's signature feature are the context-sensitive filters to narrow down search results. In first pass, Tembo groups search results by file type categories. For each group the top 10 matches are displayed. Preferences allow for groups to be enabled, disabled and reordered.
The real power and convenience of Tembo is revealed on drill-down into a group. Here Tembo lists up to 10'00 search results. Next the results are context-relevant filters. These make it easy to break down longs search results lists. E.g. a sidebar in the Documents group lists file types of found files. A single click reduces Documents search results to only Word files.
Each result category has its own dedicated filters:
* Bookmarks & History: Type, URL Domain
* Documents: File Type
* Fonts: File Type
* Images: Resolution, File Type
* Messages: Subject, From, To
* Movies: File Type, Codec
* Music: Artist, File Type
* PDF Documents: Author
* Source Code: File Type

* Actions: rename, tag, or trash files from search results
