    Now you can squirrel away information in the cloud without fear. No matter where you put it or what it is—contact, contract, whatever—CloudMagic retrieves what you need when you need it.

It’s one thing to squirrel away information in the "cloud”; finding it again is something else. CloudMagic is pretty close to magic. Once you’ve set up all of your cloud accounts (Evernote, Dropbox, Google, SkyDrive, Facebook, Twitter, and the like), CloudMagic does the rest—pulling together multiple calendars and message services, searching across all of your online accounts for those long-forgotten documents, digging out messages you were sure were lost. Type a word or two you remember in the search bar; results appear as you type. You can further limit the results by category by tapping the “filter” button.

CloudMagic installs as an app on all your mobile devices and as a browser add-in on your computer. For more information, check out the developer’s blog. Available for most mobile platforms and major Web browsers, it's free for up to 50 searches per month and costs $5 per month after that.
