Organize Your Cloud

April 11 2013

We're going to organize our cloud. There are lots of different services and we want to be able to find everything one from place. We took a look at a couple of services you can use that will wrangle your cloud storage in a cohesive way.

Primadesk

Primadesk lets you add all kinds of accounts from a number of services including Box, Cubby, Dropbox, Evernote, Facebook, FTPs and even your own PogoPlug.

The site indexes your content so you can use the search function to find your things. Primadesk also features a File Explorer layout. We found that indexing took a couple of hours and we had issues with indexing Dropbox. Without the index function, the search function is not as useful, but the file explorer works fine.

Additionally, Primadesk can bring all your email accounts under one roof. Primadesk doesn't store your data on its servers unless you want them to - you can back up your cloud services to Primadesk for a fee.

CloudMagic

CloudMagic lets you put organize your cloud life as well. It can tie into Google services, Microsoft's SkyDrive, iCloud and more. We found that CloudMagic indexes content quickly.

CloudMagic displays data in a very visual way with a two pane interface. The right pane shows you a preview of emails or files you have stores with other services. The downside is you get only 50 previews per month for free. $5 per month buys you unlimited previews. CloudMagic's search was very powerful in our tests. It's a great way to find your things.

Additionally, CloudMagic has apps for iOS, Android, and more.

Desktop Solution

If the thought of giving your credentials to a third party like Primadesk or CloudMagic (who promise they are trying to be as secure as possible) bugs you, you can always install apps for your cloud services. Mac OS X and Windows both have powerful built-in search functions that will allow you to search for your files as long as they are synced to your device.
