A little over two months after FindIt first launched for iPhone, the email- and file-search app has now quietly rolled out on Android too. It’s a beautifully designed app, one that currently connects with Gmail, Google Drive and Dropbox, though there is scope for opening this up to additional cloud-based services in the future. There are, of course, other apps designed to help you surface content in your cloud accounts – indeed, the Gmail app itself has a decent search function. But with FindIt, you can opt to search for things by person, time or file-type and, crucially, you can search universally across all compatible services in one fell swoop. So, for example, you could begin with a generic search such as ‘Annual Report’, and then throw in additional search parameters if required, such as ‘Last 30 days’, or ‘Image’, ‘Spreadsheet’ or ‘Presentation’.
