When it comes to cloud-based productivity, Google’s got it going on. With services like Gmail, Google Docs, Google Calendar and Google+, staying productive, in touch and up-to-date has never been easier. For those of us that rely heavily on what Google has on offer, it’s never been more of a pain to find what we’re looking for. While Mountain View makes it a snap to create tons of useful data with their services, keeping track of that data isn’t anywhere near what we’d call a breeze. Fortunately, CloudMagic makes taming cloud-based information simple and pain-free.
CloudMagic is a brilliant extension designed for use with your Firefox or Chrome browser. Once it’s been downloaded and installed, users are asked to enter their Google account credentials for one or multiple accounts. Once that’s done, all that’s left to do is sit back and watch in wonder as the extension beats Google at their own game. CloudMagic indexes and searches all of the content associated with your Google and Google Apps accounts, making it easy to quickly find the data you’re looking for.
Looking for information on a project? No problem. By entering a single search parameter, CloudMagic will simultaneously scour your Google Documents, Contacts and Calendar for associated information, returning the results to you in no time at all. It works so well, we’d be shocked if Google doesn’t end up buying the developers out or aping their designs in the next year or so. Seriously, it’s that good.
