FR: allow me to tag items for broader search results

Post by ptim » Wed Mar 25, 2015 2:17 am

Help!!

Problem: I have 130+ apps installed, and I use some very infrequently (and they're invaluable when needed!). I can't remember the name of 'that video app' I use once a year.

Solution: Allow me to tag items in the index so that when I install the app, i can tag it 'video, encoder, terminal, whatever' . Alternatively, index the Finder tag and comments fields. I've tried adding 'IRC' to the comments for Colloquy and refreshing the index, but no dice.

I'm not interested in visually scanning through lists hoping to recognize an icon, but when I have the problem described, I leave launchbar and open launchpad, then do a web search for the name of an app that I have installed already.. madness!!
