Houdah Software has released HoudahSpot 2: Leopard Edition. It’s a rewritten version of their search utility for Mac OS X created specifically for Mac OS X v10.5 “Leopard.” A free upgrade for HoudahSpot 1.4 users, it costs €14.95 (US$22.16).
Houdah Software has designed HoudahSpot to complement Apple’s own Spotlight application, rather than replace it — it’s designed to work hand-in-hand with Leopard’s built-in file search capabilities. HoudahSpot lets you create detailed queries to help you find the file you need. You can save queries to access those files later if you need to; set up templates for frequently-performed searches, and help use HoudahSpot for housekeeping.
New to HoudahSpot 2: Leopard Edition is an all-in-one interface, customizable result columns, live editing of queries, the ability to exclude files by location, preview files using Leopard QuickLook and more.
System requirements call for Mac OS X v10.5 or later. HoudahSpot is a Universal binary.
