Powerful, fast searching. Find anything. OS X Tagging with a real tag cloud.

Version 3.8 is built on and for macOS Sierra, runs back to 10.8.

With Leap, you are in control. See your search results visually.
Leap is indispensable if you are a creative professional, as you can easily pick out files by their looks, file type, and other criteria, all without interfering with your workflow.

Our users use Leap for organizing and visualizing projects full of files, drilling through thousands of files to find 'the one', and for enhancing the organization of large sets of research files. Get Leap and rediscover your computer.

Search with Spotlight - but see the results. Easily drill down to narrow your search by location, file type and more.

With Leap you find things based on your natural memory of that file. “Hhmm it was a big photoshop file of a basketball court” or “Something I tagged important” or “A word document somewhere in my documents folder”. With the Finder though, it's more like “I think it might be called bball.psd and that I put it in the originals folder in images in the Project 29 folder which I think I put in Documents... nope, not there... where did I put it?"

Great App - Leap will change the way you store and retrieve files on your computer! I have used it for years and the new feature of "excluding" (show me files that are tagged marketing but are not from Client ABC) will make you life even easier!

Version 3.0.1
Review by TheSeaward

Lackluster support, bad product management - The product is OK, nothing Earth-shattering like DEVONthink Pro though. If you don't need the features of DEVONthink, this will work OK for an alternative file manager to the Finder, but don't rely on tags and other metadata persisting if you sync multiple computers. You will probably be disappointed if you are expecting the tags to work reliably across multiple computers except in fringe cases where you are only using Finder copies.
