Tembo 1.2 - The Friendly Find Utility - Find Files, Messages and More

January 28, 2011 in Utility (E)

[prMac.com] Luxembourg - Houdah Software today is proud to announce the immediate availability of Tembo 1.2. Tembo is sold exclusively through the Apple Mac App Store. Tembo is an efficient search tool that is based upon the Spotlight engine. The job of Tembo is to make searching (and finding) of files, mail messages, bookmarks, ... as easy as possible. Tembo's strengths are its easy to use interface as well as the context sensitive filters to narrow down search results.

Improvements in the latest version include:
* One may now assign Tembo a hot key from the Keyboard pane in System Preferences
* Tembo 1.2 adds swipe gestures to drill down and back out
* Reveal in Finder now uses PathFinder where it is the default viewer
* Wider date columns

At first sight you will find Tembo to have been inspired by the original Spotlight interface as we knew it under Mac OS X Tiger. Search results are grouped by categories. Preferences allow for categories to be enabled, disabled and reordered.

Behind a small arrow on the header bar for each group you will find the real power of Tembo: drill-down. Tembo may list up to 2500 search results within each group. Here you will find filter appropriate for the context. These help you sort through the list of results. Messages, for example, may be filtered by subject, sender and recipient.

Thus Tembo is much more than a file search tool. It works as an extension to Mail.app / iChat.app to locate messages. And as extension to Safari to search browsing history and bookmarks, and more.

System Requirements:
* Mac OS X Version 10.6.6 or higher
* Spotlight indexing enabled
* 0.7 MB

Pricing and Availability:
Tembo 1.2 is priced at $14.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Utilities category.
