With so many different accounts (email, social networks, business management tools, etc.) it can be difficult to maintain and find what you need quickly. Did you send a message via Gmail or was what you sent through a Tweet? Those are the distractions and confusions that can happen day-to-day. You could search each individual account and try to find what you need, but while some applications have amazing search features, others fail to find what you’re looking for. Greplin “is a personal search engine that allows you to search all your online data in one easy place.”
Founded by 19 year old Daniel Gross, Greplin wants to be the “search bar for your life”. By simply signing up for free and connecting your various application accounts (Facebook, Twitter, Dropbox, Gmail, Google Docs, Google Calendars, Google Contacts and LinkedIn) you wait 20 minutes approximately for Greplin to start working, and then you can search for what you may think could never be found, quickly.
Greplin has found a very distinct niche – a search engine for your personal online history. And by being “secure” (according to Greplin), users can be assured that their accounts won’t be archived for misuse. They “want to simplify your personal web experience. Never again will you have to login to multiple websites and dig through mountains of data just to track down a single piece of forgotten information. Our goal is to keep everything in one place, so you can find what you need quickly and easily.”
