An OS X application (Leopard only!) to search faster and better using Spotlight.

Since Snow Leopard has much better Spotlight integration I probably won’t update SpotQuery anymore.

Current version: 0.89

Features

  • Easy interface to Spotlight
  • Save queries and execute later
  • Result view shows much more information than default Spotlight search
  • Preview images inline
  • Customizable: Favourite locations, thumbnail size
