March 31, 2015 in Software (E)

[] Luxembourg - Houdah Software is proud to announce the addition of a German localization to the recently released HoudahSpot 4.0. HoudahSpot is a powerful file search tool. It builds upon Spotlight and makes it both more powerful and easier to use. HoudahSpot 4.0.4 is now availble in both English and German localized versions.

HoudahSpot quickly gets you to your files without getting in the way. HoudahSpot looks and works the way you expect a file search tool to work: Fill in search criteria. Specify the folders you want to search. Refine by adding and combining criteria. Add columns to better sort and explore search results. Apply filters. Preview files and text matches.

HoudahSpot is highly customizable. Set up the search criteria, locations, sort order, result display options, etc. and save these settings as defaults for new searches. Save specialized searches as templates for reuse. If you've ever had a hard time finding a file before, this is what you've been looking for.

* Find files by name, text, content kind, author, recipient, pixel count, etc.
* Combine criteria to zero in on the files you are looking for
* Use "Find by example" to tell HoudahSpot: I want files like this one
* Search several locations at once. Exclude others
* Customize columns in the search results list
* Set up templates for recurring searches
