One of the features I was most looking forward to in OS X 10.10 (Yosemite) was the revamped version of Spotlight. I have been enjoying it's amped-up searching immensely over the last couple months. But it's all about to get so much better. Thanks to Apple's new extensions architecture built into iOS and OS X, new capabilities can be added to many apps, including Spotlight. Flashlight is the first to take advantage of this new capability, with a system of Spotlight plug-ins that do everything from search IMDB to fetch the weather, to run terminal commands without launching Terminal. Check it out here. What are some of your new favorite things about Yosemite?
