This looks REALLY interesting, unfortunately the Dev does not disclose that it uses a fork of SIMBL to work its magic (injecting code into Spotlight). Details here: https://github.com/nate-parrott/Flashlight So.. if you're running in, or worried about a secure environment, you MIGHT want to steer clear. Remember, Apple discourages code injection & InputManagers in Yosemite.

There is no version 1.1.0. The latest version is Version 1.0.1 and it was released in 2015. The GitHub page shows no changes in 2 years and says it's no longer maintained. No idea where MacUpdate got this "update" from.
