If you are in a hurry to find a file, third party applications will always work better than what your operating system has to offer, even if you are using a Mac. Such is the case with EasyFind. Although Spotlight doesn't leave much to be desired, EasyFind brings many improvements. With its advanced Boolean operators, the application is capable of finding any file on your local disk instantly, by name or contents, without indexing anything.
The application works straight out of the box, so you don't have to make any initial settings or wait for an indexing process to finish. Once EasyFind is up and running, you can just type the name of a file in a search field, hit the Return key or a Search button and the application will instantly display all files with that name, beneath the search field. Additionally, you can set up a few filters, for a precise searching process.
Besides searching for your keywords in file and folder names, EasyFind can also search for your keywords within your files. If you forgot the name of a file, you can simply type a word from its contained text and the application will find it. It is also possible to choose a different operator, like all or any words, phrase or Boolean combined with Wildcards.
When you find what you are looking for, you can reveal a file's location on a Finder window, open it, delete it or preview it. It is also possible to share the found files over the Internet, using the operating system's mail or message capabilities.
The application is capable of finding files instantly, without indexing. It allows you to search by file name or contents. You can open, delete, share and perform other actions on your files, from the application's interface.
There are no obvious drawbacks to address. With EasyFind's fast and effective capabilities, any file or folder on your Mac's disk can be found instantly, without any kind of difficulties.
