Allows AOL customers to use Spotlight to search AOL memos.
Midnight Mage Software announced the release of their new AOLMemoImporter, a Mac OS 10.4 (Tiger) Spotlight Importer. At last, AOL Client customers can use Spotlight to search the content of all of their AOL Memos.
Spotlight is one the most useful and innovative new features of Mac OS 10.4. Tiger users are quickly learning to rely on this tool. With Spotlight, they can find almost anything, anywhere on their computer. Spotlight maintains an internal database of all data it understands, so that the users can search the content of their files at a moments notice. Unfortunately, the built-in importers (plug-ins that actually parse the files) that Apple provides does not support the AOL Memo format. Nor is AOL currently providing a solution. Midnight Mage Software steps forward to fill this need with AOLMemoImporter. AOL Memos are Rich Text Document (variable font text & images) that AOL members have been creating for years. At this time, the AOLMemoImporter does not search AOL Mail Files nor the AOL Mailbox information.
Simply download the AOLMemoImporter Installer. The Installation Wizard will step the customer through the install process, asking for name, email address & credit card information. Once purchased, the installer will place the components in the correct folder, and sort any existing AOL Memo files. From this point on, any new files created are automatically sorted into the Spotlight database for quick searches. Once installed, AOLMemoImporter provides the full power of Spotlight to AOL Client customers. Users can view the results of a search literally as fast as they can type in search words.
Finally the power of Tiger combined with America Online.
AOLMemoImporter is commercial product, and a single-user registration purchase costs $19.99.
AOLMemoImporter requires Mac OS X 10.4 or above (commonly referred to as Tiger). It provides Spotlight search capabilities to Mac OS 10.4 for AOL Memo files (not AOL Mail files or AOL Mailboxes).
