We're delighted to reveal that Curiosity is now available for Mac and Linux. If you use cloud apps that Spotlight can't search (like Slack or Gmail), then now is your chance to find everything easily! 🍏

Sometimes you want to open a file quickly. Other times you want to open the folder where it's saved. Now Curiosity lets you do that. 📂

You know that feeling when you can't wait to connect a source to Curiosity and you want to do it right now? We have that sometimes, too. 😉

Well, we have good news for you: Now you can connect new sources simply by typing connect and the app name into the command bar. Leave no source unconnected. ✌️

Searching through emails for attachments or contacts is annoying. Happily, now you don't have to any more. Curiosity organises your contacts so it's easy to find everything you need, whether it's your next meeting, files you exchanged, and much more.

See how you can use contacts in our blog.

What's 1827 divided by 365? Not sure? Not a problem. 

Now you can use the Curiosity command bar for calculations. Just type your calculation and hit enter to copy the result to your clipboard.

Keyboard shortcuts are personal. We like Alt+Space for opening the command bar, but you might prefer something else. Now you can customize the Curiosity keyboard shortcut to your heart's content.

Sometimes your files need a bit more space. The sidebar is now collapsible so they have all the space they need. It looks very neat and tidy, too. Win-win.

Outlook PST archives are sometimes a necessary evil. Now less evil, because you can easily open and search them with Curiosity.

Everyone uses email, but not everyone uses Gmail or Outlook. We added IMAP support so now everyone can search their email with Curiosity, regardless which provider they use. 💌

If you use Gmail or Outlook, you can continue using our native integrations as before.

Keeping track of things between lots of projects can be challenging. That's where Spaces come in: They give you a handy way to gather things in one place. You can add files, contacts, emails to a Space and then search there. You can even download all the files in a Space as a Zip file.

Note: Creating a Space won't change where things are stored, they're just a handy place to organize things.

With the latest update, we've added a lot of new filtering functionality to the search bar. That helps you get to where you're going faster without taking your hands of the keyboard.

Here are some of the things you can filter by:

  • Time (e.g. "last week")
  • File type (e.g. "sheets")
  • Source (e.g. "Slack marketing channel")
  • Contacts (people or organizations).

Curiosity aims to help you be more productive by focusing on your workflow. Switching apps to find a document or start another program is always a distraction, so we're excited to release the Command bar.

Now you can open the Command bar from anywhere by hitting ALT+SPACE (Mac: ⌥+SPACE) to search all your apps and docs without breaking your flow.

In the future, we'll be adding more exciting functionality to the Command bar so stay tuned!

We added support for Slack. Now you can search messages and attachments, or quickly jump into a channel.

Slack is wonderful and we can't imagine life without it... but it can get a bit messy at times. We hope the integration helps you manage the mess and focus on the most enjoyable parts of Slack.
