Editors' Review

Although this search utility claims it can find any text within files, it has a seriously limited search capability. Smart Text Finder's interface, although seemingly difficult at first, will prove easy to use once you familiarize yourself with its functions using the help guide. Much like any other search tool, this utility can use Boolean text relations, which helps when searching for files within a folder or a drive. Users also can specify folder groups for a quicker search. The results are displayed by file (the View All Files tab) and by directory structure (View Each File). However, compared to the common Windows search engine, this application comes up short when searching for phrases or words within a file, which we think is an important feature in any search utility. Although beginners may find this application helpful, advanced users and programmers may find it lacking.
