SpotlightMetadata lets you see the metadata that Spotlight is collecting on your files. This is helpful so you can better understand how it works and use it more creatively/accurately. We use it to better our own programming techniques. It's really simple to use and you can get the metadata from a folder of files or target just one particular file. It supports multiple windows so you can perform multiple queries.
