The Mac user and YouTuber Cliff Ghrigsby has just published a short video demonstrating how he uses EasyFind to quickly finding files that he couldn’t locate using Spotlight. That’s just what we had in mind when we wrote EasyFind. Watch his video here. popup: true

Recently we had to pull the freeware application Grid from the App Store. Grid allows you to position windows using your keyboard and an on-screen grid. Unfortunately Apple’s strict sandboxing rules no longer allow third-party apps access to e.g. the Accessibility kit which Grid needs to move the windows. (more)
