HoudahSpot 2.2 update

Houdah Software has updated its popular search utility, HoudahSpot to version 2.2. The new version builds upon features offered in previous versions such as BlitzSearch, which combines the simplicity of Spotlight with the power of HoudahSpot. The update also improves AppleScript support as well as integration with third party tools PathFinder, LaunchBar and QuickSilver. HoudahSpot 2.2 introduces a completely rewritten BlitzSearch feature, which when called upon slides out of the top of the screen, and then allows a user to perform a customized search. HoudahSpot's enhanced AppleScript support, allows scripts to call upon BlitzSearch as well as allowing them to receive access to search results. By using HoudahSpot 2.2 users are able to create detailed queries to pinpoint the exact location of the file that they are looking for. Users may then set up templates for frequently performed searches and save queries for direct access to favorite files.

With HoudahSpot's all-in-one interface, results are shown right next to the search query, and live editing allows users to change search criteria on-the-fly without stopping the running query.

HoudahSpot 2.2 is a free update for all registered 1.0 - 1.4 and 2.0 users and is recommended for all Leopard users. It may also be purchased by new users for $15
