Up Your File and App Productivity

Find files and launch apps with Found or Pipy

Save this photo over here. Download that file into there. Jam those 4,000 songs waaay in the back.

Congratulations. Your computer is now a virtual junk drawer.

Unless you’re up for a Container Store-sized cleaning spree, you’re going to need some extra-strength search tools like Pipy for Windows and Found for Macs.

Besides scouring your files with extraordinary speed, Pipy can also launch programs and search the web – all from one text box. Suggestions appear as you type, meaning you’ll probably find what you’re looking for even if you only know half the name.

While Found won’t search the Web, it will simultaneously search your Dropbox, SkyDrive, Evernote, Gmail, and Google Drive accounts. And when you’ve found what you’re looking for, you can move it to where it needs to be with a simple drag and drop.

Think of it like your junk drawer 2.0.
