Powerful, fast searching. Find anything. OS X Tagging with a real tag cloud.

Version 3.8 is built on and for macOS Sierra, runs back to 10.8.

With Leap, you are in control. See your search results visually.
Leap is indispensable if you are a creative professional, as you can easily pick out files by their looks, file type, and other criteria, all without interfering with your workflow.

Our users use Leap for organizing and visualizing projects full of files, drilling through thousands of files to find 'the one', and for enhancing the organization of large sets of research files. Get Leap and rediscover your computer.

Search with Spotlight - but see the results. Easily drill down to narrow your search by location, file type and more.

With Leap you find things based on your natural memory of that file. “Hhmm it was a big photoshop file of a basketball court” or “Something I tagged important” or “A word document somewhere in my documents folder”. With the Finder though, it's more like “I think it might be called bball.psd and that I put it in the originals folder in images in the Project 29 folder which I think I put in Documents... nope, not there... where did I put it?"

Customer Reviews


As others here have mentioned, Leap doesn’t add alot of value beyond what can be done in the finder, i.e., tagging files.

I have attempted to use Leap on several occasions to curate/rate files and always run into problems with corruption and or loss of tagged and/or rated files.

I just finished curating/rating/tagging a few hundred files and after rating the last file, the app hung, then crashed.

After I ran Leap again and restored from the in app backup, all the ratings are still not there -and- the app can’t seem to resolve which files have tags, which don’t , and WILL NOT store ratings.

Ironic knows how people want to use this software, and in each of their apps, they leave out key features found in their other apps to drive people to buy those apps.

The thing is, all of these apps are unreliable in a similar way. I highly reccommend against using this software.
