Tembo 1.7: Tom's Mac Software Pick


Tembo has been a Mac Software Pick in the past; the latest version adds new features that got our attention once again.

Tembo organizes search results into categories, which can then be further refined using Tembo's built-in filters. What's really nice is that Tembo know what type of filters to offer, depending on the category the search results fall in. If you're looking for an email message, the filters include subject, from, to, etc. If it's an image, Tembo will suggest refining your search by resolution, file type, or other tags.

Tembo is a very effective search tool that has a better user interface than Apple's Spotlight, and is more effective when you need to drill down through a large number of search results.

Tembo is $15.00. A demo is available.
