Think Mac OS X's Spotlight could use some help, especially when searching for text files? Download EasyFind, an alternative to (or supplement of) Spotlight and find files, folders, or contents in any file without indexing. EasyFind is especially useful for those tired of slow or impossible indexing, outdated or corrupted indices, or those just looking for features missing in the Finder or Spotlight.


- Boolean operators, wildcards, phrases
- Extended Boolean operators, similar to DEVONthink and DEVONagent
- Immediate searches, no indexing required
- Finds invisible files and files inside packages (something Spotlight doesn't do)
- Displays the location of each file in a separate column
- Previews files using Quick Look (Mac OS X 10.5 or later)
- Provides contextual menus and services
- Supports drag-and-drop
- Very responsive, thanks to multithreading
- Uses very little memory

What's New in Version 4.9.3

- Improved support for OS X Mountain Lion and OS X Mavericks.
- Various bug fixes.

10 STAR App!

Can’t say enough good about this app. We originally got it because we had a folder on a PC file server that we were trying to find files on, and it would sometimes take up to 15 minutes just to load up the folder, let alone search it. This app searched and found the files we were looking for LITERALLY in 15 seconds.

Now we use it for everything, even Mac folders that the Finder is taking FOREVER to search through — EasyFind does the job in seconds — sometimes almost faster than you can type out what you are looking for.

Major kudos to this developer!!!

Continuous Downloads

Everytime I open this app to do a search it will open a web browser and download it self, again.

I previously had the version from their website isntalled and thought it was the problems. Removed the app and I noticed settings were kept after I isntalled from the App Store. I could nto find any preferences for this app. I deleted Application Support and found nothing in Containers, preferences or Saved Application Support.

Besides all of this annoying stuff it worked well. Just not going to continue to use it. I sent them an email and their suggest was to use it from their website, no change.

Cute icon AND an awesome app!

OK, so I have a soft spot for the little guy holding the magnifying glass. But this is no cute, fuzzy program. It is fast and thorough. Spotlight has over the last few incarnations become totally useless to me. It can’t decide what it wants to be when it grows up. Easy Find does exactly what its name says. It searches local drives as well as PC based network drives. I can’t thank the developers enough for this app. It makes my work life easier every day.
