The company describes themselves on their Google+ profile as a “collective encyclopedia project based on Google Drive public files and on the Cloud sharing, Cloud sourcing and Cloud solving principles.” Using Cloud Kite, users can search files uploaded to Google Drive, Dropbox, Skydrive, Evernote, and Box at the same time (note that the more services you search, the longer the search takes).
