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?"
Updates for latest Xcode, fixed a bug where a warning about Spotlight could appear in error, dragging fixes.

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!
PLEASE UPDATE! - I recall this program being pricey when I first bought it...It worked so well, that I recommended it to many others in the design industry. It just does not work well at all! Doesn't show the actual photos of what I'm looking for any longer. It's long overdue for an update, I hope they do. I will certainly leave positive feedback once it's improved. If not, please use this with caution. I no longer recommend it. Such a shame...it was once an amazing app. Hoping it will be again.

Great for Tags - I use this because Apple's finder is too bare bones, so I needed an upgraded. Thanks for all your hard work!
Tags no longer showing up : / - I started using Leap to manage photos. It was doing a great job about a year ago, but went to sort some photos and Leap isn't showing tags on individual files or on the side bar where a summary of tags is generally shown. Please update! This app used to be super-helpful!
Again - PLEASE UPDATE! - I wrote a concerned review over a year ago and was promised an update in November 2019. Still NO update! This is an amazing product, but it's painfully slow and had not been upgraded in many years - nothing compares. Please respond, thank you.
Much More Powerful Than Finder - This is much more visual and more powerful than finder. It's a worthy utility.
LEAP is an AMAZING tool - We use Leap to organize a library of music files across a team of teachers. Many file types: XML, MIDI, Finale & PDF. The strength is saving bookmarked searches brings up specific tags to show a teachers the files they need for a specific situation. Need to see all the blues songs, just pull up blues level 1 etc.
