Found is a new app for OS X that searches for files across your Mac and personal cloud services including Dropbox, Google Drive/Docs, and Gmail (attachments).

With a double tap of the control key, Found slides out to reveal its unique Palette user interface. Start typing and get immediate results with an instant, full-sized preview of nearly any file, even files in the cloud.

Key features:
* Get back to the file you just downloaded or were recently using by typing a few characters
* Quickly look up a file and glance at its contents without having to dig through Finder and launch an application
* No need to log into Google Drive/Docs or Gmail just to look at or re-download a file/attachment
* Drag and drop search results into local folders as copies or emails as attachments
* Search and preview files whether you're online or offline

What sources does Found search?
* Your Mac's Desktop, Documents, Downloads, Movies, Music, and Pictures folders
* Dropbox - autodetects it on your Mac
* Google Drive/Docs and Gmail attachments - attach multiple Google accounts, both personal and Google Apps accounts

How does search work in Found?
* Immediately responsive, character-by-character search
* Search using just partial word prefixes - the whole word is rarely necessary. Type 'mov' for results with 'movie', 'move', and 'moving'.
* No hard-to-remember query commands to learn - type 'pdf' to look up PDF documents or 'alan' for Google Drive/Docs shared with Alan
* Found indexes each file's name, path, and, if applicable, email from/to/subject fields or Google Drive/Docs last-modified-by name

How secure and private is Found?
* All your logins and passwords are securely stored in encrypted form in your Mac's Keychain
* Found connects your Mac directly to your personal cloud services with no intermediary to index your personal data
* All searching is done locally on your Mac. No server is involved.

You can download Found from the App Store for free.
