Hagen Kaye, Developer of DataLore says, "Users with one Mac, will love DataLore for its speed. Users with more than one Mac, will go 'gaga' over the speed and flexibility of finding and retrieving files for all the Macs on their network, while comfortably seated at their Mac du jour!"

Special Characters and Text Shorthand allow users to perform more complex searches or combine characters to perform highly-defined search patterns.
