The fact that macOS has its very own advanced files search system surely isn’t news to anyone. To search for a file in macOS, all you have to do is open any Finder window, click the sprocket shaped button from the top toolbar, select the “Show Search Criteria” option from the drop-down menu and you will be soon delighted by the endless search possibilities.
And, of course, there’s the already famous Spotlight that macOS bundles straight out of the box, with its all-encompassing system search capabilities and user-friendly desktop integration.
Encompasses the best parts of Spotlight and macOS’ built-in search engine
SpotFiles is a lightweight and small macOS application that wasn’t designed to be better than Spotlight or macOS’ native search engine, but rather to take the best parts of each and provide you with an easy to use and, in the same time, comprehensive way to search for your files.
This said, SpotFiles aims to be as easy to use as Spotlight and to provide you with advanced search capabilities of macOS’ default search engine.
User-friendly and powerful macOS software solution for quick and comprehensive file search
You will be greeted by a simple and small interface that makes it possible for you to search for your files using criteria like name, size, kind, created date, modified date, and tags, each and every one with its own set of customizable particularities.
Of course, you can add any number of search criteria as you like and even perform multiple searches at the same time. Last but not least, SpotFiles can also be summoned with keyboard custom shortcuts, just as is the case with Spotlight.
One of the most useful little applications that will ever find for your Mac
As an ending note, if you want a very efficient and user-friendly software solution for system-wide file searching, then it really doesn’t get any better than SpotFiles, an application that absolutely complements both Spotlight and macOS’ native file searching system, without making it seem like a handful.
