App of the Week: CloudMagic 2

For the busy small business owner, it may seem like everything is everywhere. You have e-mails on six separate e-mail accounts, both personal and professional, you have Cloud-based storage for your photos, music, work documents, personal documents, and more. CloudMagic allows you to access everything you need wherever you are, through a smartphone, tablet, PC, or laptop.

Data management tool provider Webyog owns CloudMagic, which allows you to centralize all of your data and accounts in one place. This allows you to search all of your e-mail, social media, and contacts, as well as find documents across all of your connected PCs. Check out this video to see how it works:

“With over 100,000 users over the last eight months since launch, we are more confident than ever that a very quick search box across all your data is the only way to reduce the stress caused by the deluge of information,” a CloudMagic spokesperson says. “We’ve worked very hard to retain the lightning fast search speed we’re known for.”

With the release of CloudMagic 2, Webyog has added exciting new features, including:

  • Ability to see updates for all data in one place
  • More detailed previews
  • Ability to forward e-mails and view attachments
  • Support for Facebook and Twitter
  • Ability to search Cloud-based sites like Dropbox, Google Docs, and Evernote
  • iPad and iPhone app
  • Android app

Because CloudMagic is known for its super-speedy searches, the company was committed to keeping that speed while adding these enhancements. For that reason, the company redesigned the entire application, top to bottom.

The best news is, the app is free. All you have to do is sign up and choose the services you’d like to include in your searches. The search can take a while, especially if you have years of files and messages out there, but once setup is complete, your search will complete in mere seconds. Need an e-mail you sent about a certain topic? Simply type in the keywords and your results will appear.

While there is no shortage of services that provide Cloud-based data storage and backup, CloudMagic’s offerings are unique. The site retrieves the files you need when you need them. The service is secure, as well, using a service called OAuth for the company’s system administrators to keep your data backed up without having to know your password. If you wish to delete an account, your data will be removed from CloudMagic’s servers.

As small business owners spread their data across more accounts, Cloud-based document storage will become even more popular. CloudMagic allows busy entrepreneurs to easily find what they need without having to search countless accounts and devices. Whether you’re in a business meeting or in a hotel room after a long day on the road, you’ll be able to find the information you need to provide a professional appearance for your clients and colleagues.
