PocketLight emulates some \"Spotlight\" features

updated 12:55 pm EST, Fri March 11, 2005

PocketLight Spotlight

is a free application for Mac OS X 10.3 that provides search capabilities for mailboxes, iCal events, Address Book records, and files in a specified folder. According to the developer, PocketLight is designed to provide "limited Spotlight for Panther" -- that is, some of the features offered by Apple's "Spotlight" technology, which will be featured in Mac OS X 10.4 "Tiger." PocketLight is accessible through a menubar icon or by hotkey and displays the results grouped by category. The current release is intended as a preview release, and is offered for free. "The possibilities of PocketLight are of course very limited when compared to the upcoming Spotlight technology ... we all have to wait for another few months for the real Tiger experience."
