FindIt: search Gmail, Google Drive, Dropbox from one app

FindIt is a third party app that makes sense of finding attachments across several platforms, a great productivity booster for workers on the go.



FindIt makes finding it super simple

You’re in the car and you need to find a digital document, let’s say a client proposal, but you don’t remember where you put it – did you email it to yourself? Did you remember to put it in Dropbox, or wait, did you shove it into Google Drive? Digital document management when done on the fly, can be confusing and discombobulated, especially when you’re the personality type that isn’t exactly organized.

Launched this summer, FindIt is a mobile app that allows you to find emails and files on your cloud accounts with a few taps on your smartphone. Instead of digging into the fine print or hoping an email has an attachment, they’ve made a visually appealing and easy to skim list of files from Gmail, Google Drive, and Dropbox, allowing you to see people involved in each document, the file type, and the timing, making it even faster to search for and find that document you really, really need right now.

What this all means

Digital experts assert that it is unsafe to store all documents in one location due to the ease of hacking, so many professionals are segmenting where they keep documents and how they are stored and kept safe. Hopefully FindIt will add other services (Evernote, maybe?) so that this diversity in storage options can be catered to and users can easily locate files, especially while in the field.

As the digital world becomes more complex, we’ll see more third party apps like FindIt or even CloudMagic to add simplification to multiple sources of information. In the future, more apps that bring together data from Facebook and Twitter will launch, and productivity tools will continue to be launched to make the plethora of digital data points more accessible, meaningful, and useful to users.
