Leap. Your new Finder.

Leap. Your new Finder.

Ironic Software is offering a public beta of its new Finder replacement.

We've all felt that drop in workflow when we've had to locate a file in the Finder. Even if you know exactly where something is, it can take many clicks to navigate to that place in the hierarchy. It always seems like work to remember where you left things. Why after 20 plus years are we still having to navigate folders in order to find something on a hard drive?

With Leap you find things based on your natural memory of that file. "Hhmm it was a big photoshop file of a basketball court" or "Something I tagged important" or "A word document somewhere in my documents folder" (feel free to substitute your own here). With the Finder though, it's more like "I think it might be called bball.psd and that I put it in the originals folder in images in the Project 29 folder which I think I put in Documents... nope, not there... where did I put it?"

Finally a way to quickly tag documents. Instantly call up tagged documents using Leap's tag cloud.

Peruse found documents visually by thumbnail or using a more traditional list. Choose how large or small to show the documents. Add tags, open documents in your favourite program, email them, throw them out they're at your command.

Leap. Your new Finder.
