CNET Editors' review
Some users may not be satisfied with the features of the native file-searching utility on their Mac. iFileX for Mac does add some additional features, but ultimately will add little to most Mac users' systems.
Download of iFileX for Mac completed fairly quickly via a high-speed connection, as did installation. There were no user instructions or technical support apparently available, which is a disappointment, even for a free program. The program's minimal menu is easy to read, although its default size is small. While the program is active, the menu also sits on top of all other program windows, even those that are active. Drop-down menus allow the user to select the search location and subfolders, and enter name fields. Once initiated, the search completes in a short time and the results can be displayed in a window or in the Finder. In addition to names, files can also be searched by other criteria, including modification date. Unfortunately, most of these features are available in native search programs, or can be located easily in the Finder.
While functional as a basic search program, iFileX for Mac doesn't add much beyond what is already covered by programs already on your computer. It may be a matter of preference, but iFileX for Mac doesn't seem to offer any notable extras.
From OSX Bytes:
iFileX is not meant to be a substitute for Spotlight but it can find more files including hidden files, packages content, bundles content.
You can search after file size,creation and or modification dates, is Folder, is Alias and file name.
This way it is easy to find more related files of applications you try to remove from your system.

- Fixed issue removing files and asking admin password.
