Tembo: Easy and Effective Searching

What is Tembo?

Drill-Down

Tembo is an efficient search tool that is based upon the Spotlight engine. The job of Tembo is to make searching (and finding) of files, mail messages, bookmarks, ... as easy as possible.

In a first pass, Tembo shows results grouped by type. For each group, Tembo lists the top 10 matches. Often enough you will find the sought for file right there.

You may also drill down into individual groups. There you will find filters appropriate for the current context. The Messages group, for example, offers filters on author, recipient and subject.

Thus Tembo is much more than a file search tool. It works as an extension to Mail.app / iChat.app to locate messages. And as an extension to Safari to search browsing history and bookmarks, etc.
