Rewind is a search engine for your life, allowing you to find anything you've seen, said, or heard. It stores all recordings locally on your Mac for privacy and utilizes native macOS APIs and Optical Character Recognition to analyze everything on your screen.

Rewind can also automatically record your meetings for easy searchability. It doesn't tax your CPU while recording, and has the ability to exclude specific apps and private browsing.

It is made for M1 & M2 Apple Silicon SOCs and utilizes virtually every part of the system on a chip.
