Meta combines an extended and improved version of the familiar Spotlight query language with a multi-window interface. Features include:
  • Search terms can be combined using 'and' and 'or' boolean operators (think 'movies or music' to find all your movies and music)
  • Searches can be restricted to specific folders, so you can focus your searches much better than in Spotlight, which looks everywhere
  • Saved searches (Metafolders, which are like Smart Folders) can be created from an existing search with a single mouse click, instead of going though a cumbersome GUI interface

The best feature of this searching-app (imho) is the possibility to use terms like "&&" and "||" when looking for tags or filenames, just like one would in Javascript, for example. This plus features like searching for substrings, in certain locations or for certain kinds of files makes this one an enormous useful application.

  • Spotlight comments can be edited or appended for multiple items at a time, which makes Spotlight tagging really easy
  • Searches can be updated as you type, or Meta can wait until you press 'return'
