Leap 2.0 adds OpenMeta tagging, new interface

updated 06:45 pm EDT, Tue June 2, 2009

Leap 2.0 launches

Ironic Software has added a new search engine and revamped interface to its updated file-browsing software, Leap 2.0. Version 2.0 eliminates the use of databases, enabling expanded scalability and faster performance. The update uses the OpenMeta metadata standard, allowing users to tag and rate files without changing the contents of the file. Apple's Spotlight and other metadata search tools support the OpenMeta standard.

The Leap search utilizes tags and offers visual results for browsing. As users enter keywords, the software presents hits as scalable thumbnails. The search function is designed to allow documents to be found based on natural memory, while providing similar content to the target file.

Leap 2.0 requires Mac OS X 10.5.5 or later. It costs $60 and can be purchased with three other Ironic applications for $70.
