Tembo finds files, folders, mail messages, bookmarks, images ... .
Tembo shows results grouped by file type. Initially the top 10 matches for each group are shown. Often enough you will find the sought for file right here.
Drill-down into a group reveals up to 10'000 results alongside context-sensitive filters. These help narrow down the results list.
The 'Messages' group, for example, has filters on subject, sender and recipient. The 'Images' group has filters for resolution and file type.
Thus Tembo is much more than a file search tool.
It works as an extension to Mail or iChat to locate messages.
As extension to Safari to search browsing history and bookmarks, ...
