Tembo overview

Tembo is an easy-to-use file search tool based upon the powerful Spotlight engine. Tembo finds documents, folders, mail messages, bookmarks, images, videos, and more. It shows results grouped by file type. Initially the top 10 matches for each group are shown. Often enough you will find the sought for file right here.

Drill-down into a group reveals up to 50,000 results alongside context-sensitive filters. These help narrow down the results list. The "Messages" group, for example, has filters on subject, sender and recipient. The "Images" group has filters for resolution and file type.

In the screenshot Tembo is being used to search for "Houdah," a competing app from the same developer.

Apparently even Tembo is looking for a better search tool. :-)

"Find My File" quit working, I tried EasyFind, Scherlokk, iFileX, HoudahSpot, nothing knocked me out.

Tried Tembo and searched for a song I have and it divided the search into categories: Sibelius files, messages, folders, PDFs and movies. 10 in each category. To the right of any category is the total amount of files/folders and click on it and you can see ALL of PDFs or movies or folders or whatever.

Purchased and got a license thru Paypal and it was easy. $15 dollars so if discontinued no biggy . . . but I think if will be around to stay since it is smooth, looks Mac-like and even the purchase was easy.

Try EasyFind for free and then this and you can pretty much make a good decision.

Nit-picking about system files aside (and I believe they've revised their description, which now reads "Tembo finds documents, folders, mail messages, bookmarks, images, videos, and more"), Tempo is an excellent tool for people who need to find files FAST with an easy-to-use interface. Well worth the price. HoudahSpot is even more powerful, also worth the price. Very responsive developer.
