FindIt makes searching for files on your Android device incredibly simple

In this changing climate of cloud storage, there never seems to be one right answer. Drive is great, and works well with Android, but doesn’t quite do it all. QuickOffice helps with reading Microsoft Office documents from your Drive account, but Dropbox does a much better job.

Then there are times when you simply don’t see a need to download something, and just leave attachments in your email folders. Any method is fine, but then there are times when you forget where to look. Fear not, because FindIt has you covered!

FindIt searches your GMail, Dropbox, and Drive folders to find the item you’re looking for. You can search by Person, Time, or Type -- so if you know who sent it, but aren’t exactly sure what you’re looking for, FindIt can help. You can also link multiple GMail or Dropbox accounts, keeping your work and home life pretty seamlessly in tune.

Search by Type will allow you to check out just about any type of file, from a presentation to a media file. The timeline search is pretty crucial as well, which could come in handy for those times you’re buried in ePaperwork and have a pretty good idea when that file was created, but not sure where you put it.

FindIt is available now from the Play Store, and has a rating of 4.1. Some are reporting that the app crashes, but for its first week on Android, we’ll look to the FindIt team to fix those issues quickly. The app is free to download, and free to use.

    We figured out the crashing issue. When adding accounts you need to swipe the icons from left to right. Tapping on them causes a crash for some reason. We’re fixing this now and a fixed version will be pushed out shortly! Thanks for covering us and helping us make FindIt even better!
