I write everything down. And when I say everything, I mean everything. I’m a pretty organized person, but if I don’t write it down, it doesn’t get done. I may make a note of it in my iPhone’s notes app, or I may save it on Evernote, or in an email. Sometimes I know I’ve got information somewhere in my vast resources, but I’m just not sure where I put it. I have that address in an email – now to figure out which email…
CloudMagic to the rescue. It takes the guesswork out of where I left important information that I want to reference. With its smartphone app, CloudMagic works at a lightning speed to search and locate what I’m trying to find. This mail app reduces the time I spend searching on email and other cloud-based platforms. Here are nine reasons I use CloudMagic:
- The price is right. CloudMagic is free. If your life is more complicated than mine you may want to upgrade to the pro subscription for $50 annually. That gets you an unlimited number of in boxes and a passcode to lock the app.
- You can search individual accounts or all accounts. I like options.
- CloudMagic supports virtually any account type you may have including Evernote, Box, Dropbox, Office 365, and even AOL.
- You can search in a number of ways: a Gmail search bar, full page search, Chrome’s Omnibox, Chrome’s browser options, or a browser context menu.
- It’s fast. Review after review comments on how astoundingly fast this app finds what you’re looking for.
- You can set reminders by holding down the favorite button to return to important mail later.
- Because it’s a browser extension, it works smoothly with Gmail and Google Docs.
- You can conduct an offline search. Data is indexed locally on your hard drive so aside from photos and attachments, you can find what you’re looking for – even without an internet connection.
