Found for Mac

CNET Editors' review

Found for Mac provides an alternative to OS X's built-in Spotlight feature, offering well-organized search results, full-size previews of files, and the ability to search personal cloud storage services. However, items like mail messages, folders, and calendar events are excluded, and cloud storage search doesn't feature Apple's own iCloud offering.

Installation of Found for Mac goes easily via the App Store, but the initial setup is rather frustrating. There is no option for simply selecting your home folder and indexing all your files, which Found does not support. During setup, once a folder is selected you cannot unselect it. Once you click "Next" to move through the setup process, you cannot go back to make changes. Any changes need to be made after setup is complete in the app's Preferences panel. Configuring for Google Drive or Dropbox was easy, but if you're already syncing files from these services to your Mac, the app will look in your local folders, too. Indexing is fairly quick, however, and files are located nearly instantly. To search, press a configurable hot key combination and the search "Palette" slides into view, ready for action. The application's best feature is full-size previewing of files, useful for viewing pictures and documents just by selecting a file in the search results window.

Found for Mac is attractive and performs well. While it seems to fill no great need for the Mac user who's been using Spotlight to find everything, everywhere, on their computer, this application can prove more than useful to those who use several cloud storage services at the same time and need to locate certain files quickly.
