TagIt for Mac allows you to search through the tags on your computer, either the existing ones from pre-Mavericks or the new OSX-created tag system. The result is in some ways redundant for those that have only used tagging in Mavericks, but can be very useful for anyone who has an older version of OS X or existing tags on their computer they have no means to search with the new OS X.

After installation of TagIt for Mac, it will open as a search interface, asking you to type in the keywords you'd like to search for and to set a minimum rating for your search. This allows you to filter based on multiple criteria. While OS X 10.9 allows you to do something similar with the built-in OS X tagging system, this system offers a few more features, including comma delimiting in your searches. The real value in TagIt comes for those that have either used a similar system in the past or who are still using an older version of OS X that doesn't use tags, because you can add tags to files even in 10.8. The interface is basic and doesn't offer a lot of advanced features, but it runs smoothly and the search tool integrates with OS X search, smoothly.

If you are not fully satisfied with the search tools and tagging options provided by OS X 10.9 or if you have an older version of OS X on your Mac, consider downloading this free tagging tool for your computer. It's not as powerful as some other classification tools, but it offers fast, responsive controls and augments Apple's built-in search, nicely.
