Tembo (com.houdah.tembo2) is a Mac OS X software application that has been discovered and submitted by users of iBoostUp.

The latest version that our iBoostUp users have reported seeing on their systems is Tembo 17173. Tembo requires macOS 10.11 or later.

Publisher Description:
Tembo is a super-efficient, organized file search tool. It will get to your files as quickly as possible. Tembo finds documents, folders, images, videos, and more.

Search starts with a single text entry. Tembo then groups search results by file type category. For each group, Tembo first shows the top 10 matches. Often enough, you will find the sought for file right here.

The real power of Tembo is revealed when you drill down into a group. You will find up to 10000 search results. Filters appropriate to the current group help you quickly find what you are looking for.

Filters show options that are actually available. The File Type filter, for example, shows a Microsoft Word option only if the search returned Word files. Select that option to reduce the long list of results to just Word files. Command-click several filter values to see files of different types.

\\ What filters are available?

  • Documents: File Type
  • Fonts: File Type
  • Images: Resolution, File Type
  • Messages: Subject, From, To
  • Movies: File Type, Codec

    \\ Which files can Tembo find?

    Tembo uses the existing Spotlight index. Tembo can find any file indexed by Spotlight. This includes files in the Library folders, but excludes most system files, hidden files, etc.

    On macOS 10.15 Catalina, Apple Mail messages are not available through the Spotlight index. Tembo will no longer be able to find Mail message files.
