Houdah Software has announced the immediate availability of HoudahSpot 2.5, their popular file search utility for Mac OS X. HoudahSpot 2.5 is a free update, and is recommended for all Leopard users. HoudahSpot 2.5 adds the ability to search "any text" attribute using a single criterion. The user entered text will be matched against any text attribute indexed by Spotlight: title, contents, author, copyright, and more.

Of course HoudahSpot 2.5 still allows you to query attributes individually. You get to chose from a seemingly endless list of attributes both when building criteria and when customizing result view columns. Luckily you may set up templates to store your presets.

HoudahSpot 2.5 also adds two new ways of viewing results. The grid view presents results using an arranged grid of icons. The CoverFlow view matches the one used by the Finder. Version 2.5 has furthermore been optimized for improved performance.

With HoudahSpot 2, users may create detailed queries to pinpoint the exact file they want to get to. The results may be shown with any number of columns. The list may be sorted by any attribute imaginable. Users may set up templates for frequently performed searches and save queries for direct access to favorite files.

One of HoudahSpot's key features is its extensive customization. Once fully customized, a preferred template may be set as starting point for future queries.

With HoudahSpot's all-in-one interface, results are shown next to the search query. By taking advantage of Leopard's unique features, users can issue powerful search queries to the Spotlight engine to zero in on files quickly and easily. And with live editing, user may change search criteria on-the-fly without stopping the running query.

Purchasing HoudahSpot licenses:
HoudahSpot 2.5 is priced at $25 (USD) for a single-user license. It is a free upgrade for all registered 1.0 - 1.4 and 2.0 customers.
