Mac search utility Disklens receives update, adds tags support
Linz, Austria – microLARGE software today released Disklens 1.1, an improved version of the menu bar search utility for Mac OS X. This release brings support for Spotlight comments (tags), adds preferences for customizing search result presentation, brings a few user interface improvements like grouping search results by month, and extends the list of supported languages with French and Spanish.
Disklens aims to streamline the daily routine of finding information on your Mac by combining Apple’s proven Spotlight search technology with a convenient user interface. Karl Traunmuller, the developer of Disklens says, “Today’s disk sizes call for powerful search tools. With Disklens, I wanted to create a tool that would combine thorough search capabilities with a lightweight, yet effective user interface.”
The menu bar application, accessible through a system-wide hotkey, utilizes Apple’s Spotlight search technology to locate files and folders either by title, text content, or Spotlight comments (tags). Disklens delivers up to 30,000 search results, grouping them into categories such as Documents, Messages, Applications, etc. Results are presented in a summarized list that flies out from the menu bar.
Important information like creation date, last modification date, or containing folder is immediately accessible by means of a fly-out window that moves along with the mouse. Tapping the Space bar on a search result will open an inline QuickLook preview window. An aspect that sets it apart from Apple’s own Spotlight search utility is the ability to drill down into specific result categories. In drill-down, an exhaustive list of results within a certain category is presented, sorted in reverse chronological order, and grouped by month for better visual orientation.
