"I've been looking for a program to do this literally for years! Great program!
I have lots of different versions of notes and pieces of a writing project and this helps me find the relevant ones quickly. Well done!"

"I'm a writer who works in many short forms (short stories, song lyrics, poetry, essays) as well as long. I need to keep all drafts of all of my work electronically, so there are thousands of files in dozens of folders on my computer. Seekfast enables me to quickly locate specific as well as multiple versions of any of my works. It's an invaluable tool."

"As a college professor who writes a lot of books, I download all of my relevant research materials (Word Documents and PDFs) into folders, and frequently need to search among them for particular text phrases at each stage of each book's development. Given that I was unhappy with the hit-or-miss text search function built into Windows 10, and that the Adobe Acrobat cross-document text search function is both awkward to use and very slow, I scoured the Internet for a utility which could accomplish the task I needed in a better manner. Surprisingly, while there are tons of decent search engines to find files and folders, there are very few that do cross-file non-Internet-based text searches.
Then I found SeekFast, and it exceeded all of my expectations! It installs on computers without a hitch, takes up a tiny amount of disk space, and handles both Word documents and PDFs (as well as several other document types). It is incredibly fast--amazingly so--and provides output that is really clear and just perfect to use. Not only does it show you where in each file the text you are searching for is located, with the context of surrounding words, but it also allows you to get directly to each file (Word document or PDF) listed if you need more of the context. This utility does everything I could want and more!
After having SeekFast for just a few weeks, I have become totally dependent on it, and frankly do not know what I would do without it. There is nothing else like it on the market!
If you are doing focused research on any topic, you will not find any substitute, and if you download the relevant files and use SeekFast you completely avoid the spam and the junk you would get if you download nothing and just did a standard Google text search. I highly recommend that you purchase it - and the developer is really nice too!"

"I have over 12,000 short quotes, stories and illustrations stored in multiple Microsoft Word files that have been randomly typed in over the years, with no attempt to organize them (other than to drop them in a single folder) because I had a program that would search them and find what I needed. With the evolution of Windows that searching task has become more cumbersome to the point of being impossible.
I find it hard to believe that in 20 years of hunting for a search engine that does what I want that SeekFast would be the ticket. I have downloaded at least a dozen programs over the years, but none did the job I needed and ALL of them did that tiresome indexing that was of little help for my needs. Now you have solved it for me!
Count me as a HUGE fan and endorser of the software. I think I could sell it to anyone who wondered what it would do."

"SeekFast - really smart, fast and accurate solution to search for specific texts in multiple Word, PDF and text files. A really great tool that works like a charm. Highly-recommended."
"One especially nice feature is that it not only shows the result of the searched term, but also the fragment where the text appears so that one need not open every document to see if it is the right one. It supports multiple formats and is compatible with Word, PDF, TXT, HTML, RTF, etc. It uses no noticeable computer resources and just sits on one’s computer waiting to be called to action. The email/support ticket procedure is excellent".

"For a quick view of the word or phrase in its context, one can click on any line in the text with the search words in bold red. During the installation, I was offered access to SeekFast through the right-click menu in Windows Explorer. This makes the program easily accessible when I find myself deep down in a maze of sub-folders and need to carry out a “Seek”. The support staff was very responsive to my inquiries, always answering within 24 hours of my request".

"SeekFast is extremely easy to use and almost anyone that has performed a search using Google or a similar search engine will be able to use SeekFast from the first opening of the program. I like the ability to view the sentence containing the search words without having to open the file. This function of SeekFast makes the search job even faster as the goal of the search is to find the file one is searching for. Being able to select the folder(s) to limit the search to shortens search times even further".

"To my surprise, SeekFast helps one find the searched terms almost instantly, so it is really fast. The program is far from complicated and one may even skip reading the “Help”. Also, you can start the programme with a right click of the mouse and I find this option very useful, because it can save you quite a lot of time".
"You have a very nice product that is easy to use."
