Basecamp, Box, SkyDrive work together with Refinder

We are happy to announce that we have just added 3 new integrations to Refinder. Now you can also connect your Basecamp classic, Box or SkyDrive account. This works for Refinder Cloud Search or for Refinder for Teams.

Windows Explorer and Microsoft Outlook used to be the daily hotspot for most knowledge workers. With collaboration and file storage moving to the cloud, new tools are replacing and outpowering Outlook and Explorer. That is why we are switching off these classical integrations for Refinder to integrate new cloud apps for you.

Just about 5 years ago the office looked different. You would manage your contacts, share a calendar entry and send out e-mails via Outlook. You used to search, copy or save your files on the local PC and find them in Windows Explorer.

Search Your Cloud Apps with Refinder Cloud Search

Searching files across your cloud apps is critical for effective project management. Now you can search across your cloud apps like Dropbox, Google Drive, Evernote, Basecamp, Livedrive with Refinder Cloud Search. It's simple and fast.

Why Portals like Yahoo are on the rise again


Once upon a time search engines were online portals that provided all the information you needed. Then Google emerged and changed the web forever. With the advent of apps however, the old portal concept of Yahoo might come back.

While there were many websites on the Internet, Yahoo became your one-stop-shop for all the information you needed. Weather, recipes, your e-mails, headlines, all was on Yahoo which integrated specialized services into the site.

Meet: The New, Simplified Cloud App Search

Search all your Twitter, Evernote, or Dropbox content faster than ever before.

With Refinder's full text search engine it is easier than ever to find your documents in the cloud. We are all using more and more cloud apps: Evernote together with a colleague, Dropbox for a project, GoogleDocs for yet another project. How do you find what you have stored?

New Feature: Mail things to your Refinder collections

We are happy to present a new feature: Now you can send emails directly to your collections. Each  collection gets a unique e-mail address. Send and import mails you want to share into your collection. Attachment, e-mail communication, bookmarks? All can be sent via mail.

This has been on your wishlist for longer and we took care to make it convenient and simple to use.

Here's how it works
