Application Locator

Easily find applications by name or bundle identifier


Wondering where the default copy of a specific application is? Enter its bundle identifier or name into the field and press enter, and Application Locator will open a Finder window for the folder containing the app.

For example, after entering com.growl.growlhelperapp, it brought me to the hidden location of GrowlHelperApp within the Growl preference pane.

The application, in a zip archive.
