CloudMagic enhances your Google search


Firstly, a big thank you to every single one of our wonderful users for an amazing 2012. The year started with our mobile apps launch, then we launched support for a host of cloud services with Cloudmagic 2, and now we end the year with a way to combine CloudMagic search results with Google search.

Earlier today, we announced (the TechCrunch review here) the launch of our new browser extensions, which show CloudMagic results right next to Google search results. All you need to do is install the extension and a box will appear next to Google search results, showing matches from your personal cloud data. Links to the latest extensions:  Chrome | Firefox | Safari

It’s never been easier to search through all your data with CloudMagic. We hope you love it. It’s been an awesome 2012 and 2013 is already looking infinitely more awesome. Stay tuned.

Happy New Year, happy holidays and happy searching! As always, talk to us, we love it – feedback@cloudmagic.com or comment below.

Thank you once again.

All of us at CloudMagic

Hack the cloud: Get 12GB+ free space without losing your mind


Update: (February 10, 2014) The service – CloudMagic Search referred to in this post is now shut down. We’ve shifted our focus on building CloudMagic Mail.

 Keep 12GB of your files synced at any device with a single point of access (for FREE)

I realized today that one can upload more than 12 GB of data to various file sharing services and access them from a single interface across multiple devices for FREE. I thought it’s pretty creative and definitely worth sharing.

So here’s how it works. You can get free storage from various cloud service providers like Dropbox, Google Drive, Box etc. Their free plans get you a total of 12GB, here’s how, you just need to sign up to them:

Google Drive                        5 GB
Dropbox                                2 GB
Box                                         5 GB

Fairly simple so far, but now that you’ve signed up to multiple file storage services, you have a problem – when you try to locate a file, you don’t remember the service you had uploaded it to. How I solved that problem? Surely I used CloudMagic to locate any file within seconds. Upload anywhere you want and then forget about it. When you want the file, just type in few characters in CloudMagic, and it’s right there.

Up next – 29GB FREE and still use CloudMagic to manage them all!
CloudMagic search is coming soon for the following services, and then you can have more than 29 GB of free storage with a single point of access:.

SkyDrive                                7 GB
SugarSync                            5 GB
Amazon Cloud Drive         5 GB

Update: Now with the addition of SkyDrive in CloudMagic you get 19GB+ of cloud storage with a single point of access.
