Greplin lets you search the top social networks, email clients and productivity apps, including:
- Google Apps (premium)
- … more
It’s free to search the most basic apps, but then moves to a premium model for productivity apps, it seems. (I do miss the old days when everything was free…)
The interface looks exactly like Google, which is nice. Works.
But why hasn’t Google offered this service themselves you wonder? Facebook won’t let Google index their data, of course. Those guys are just becoming really tit-for-tat, which if you think about it is all good for us, the consumer. Opens up space for competition by guys like Greplin.
Imagine a world where just eff-book and Goog were collecting our shit? We need to be able to spread our data around a little so everyone can capitalize on it, right? Wait, what?
