Editors' Review

EasyFind is an alternative tool to Spotlight, OS X's built-in search tool. It is a small, lean program. It is a powerful search tool that allows you to adjust settings to do extremely thorough searches of your system for files.

Pros

Lean and mean: This program is quite small and doesn't take up much room on your system. The program itself is less than 5MB in size. It installs incredibly quickly as a result. It also runs quick, and its searches of your system seem to happen in very short order.

Good options: EasyFind really gives you all of the options you'll need to narrow your search down. You can search files, folders, or both. You can also specify a search of only file contents and can use Boolean operators to further outline the parameters of your search. You also only have to click a checkbox in order to include invisible files and folders in your search, which is a welcome feature.

Cons

Outdated interface: EasyFind looks like it was designed several years ago and hasn't been updated since. It has the look of a much older program, and the options settings are so small that some of them were hard to read. A little more design planning may make the program more usable.

Redundant app: This app may have had a place in the past, but with Spotlight and file organization being so good in current Mac operating systems, it seems redundant. No files that we searched for were found by EasyFind any quicker than when we did the same search with Spotlight.

Bottom Line

This program fulfills its desired function quickly and admirably. It does search successfully for files on your computer without slowing your computer down or taking excessively long. However, the internal search function in OS X has gotten so good, that the program feels as outdated as it looks.
