Houdah Software (http://www.houdah.com/) has updated HoudahSpot, their Spotlight front end for Mac OS X, to version 3.3. The upgrade adds the option to hide the query pane, making more room to show the search results.
HoudahSpot’s tagging feature is based upon the OpenMeta technology, so is compatible with a growing number of third party tagging applications. The HoudahSpot Tray lists favorite tags as well as tags recently used by HoudahSpot or another OpenMeta tagging solution. Drag a file to a tag to assign it that tag. Drag a file to the file well to be presented with a window to enter any number of tags. Select tags and double-click to start a search. Hold down the option key while double-clicking to match any of the selected tags.
HoudahSpot is a Spotlight front-end for Mac OS X 10.5 (“Leopard”) and 10.6 (“Snow Leopard”). With it, users may create detailed queries to pinpoint the exact file they want to get to. HoudahSpot costs US$30 for a single-user license.
