Find like a pro.
With powerful features and great performance, ProFind delivers the most advanced file search for macOS. And with support for natural language queries, application launching, hidden location searches, scripting and more, it's the only search app you'll need.

Most file search apps search either the macOS's metadata database or the disk directly. This means they can often provide search results that are incomplete, or contain unwanted items or they perform unnecessarily slowly. ProFind combines both metadata and disk search techniques into one app, providing fast and complete searches of any disk beneath an elegant and powerful user interface.

Type a few characters from an application's name to find it fast.

Fully configurable quick folders gives fast access to commonly used folders.

QuickLook, Finder integration, sharing support and support for shell scripts and AppleScripts.

A multi-line path view shows the full location of search results and differences between paths.

Limit searches to individual disks or folders.

Pick extra search criteria from the menu or use the intuitive natural language capabilities.
