Spotlight is the lightning-fast search technology built into Mac OS X. With Spotlight, you can find anything on your computer as quickly as you type: files, email, contacts, images, calendar events, and applications. And because it’s built into the core of Mac OS X, search results update instantly whenever files change. Spotlight comes with inherent support of many file types, but it also API’s for developers to extend and add support for other unsupported file types.
We at MetaDesign have boosted Mac OS X spotlight by creating spotlight plugins. This lists in its virtual index more file types than what are already supported. Our Mac OS X Spotlight plugins help users to narrow down their search by using attributes other than dates, size and type. Kindly browse through our product line for a complete list of Spotlight plugins.
We have extended spotlight to support multiple file types which by default are not supported by Apple. Kindly browse through our product line for a complete list.
