Google Drive, Dropbox, Skydrive, Evernote, and Box are tools that allow users to save and share documents on the cloud. Unfortunately, most of these tools have not developed a way for users to search other people’s files that have been set to allow for public sharing. Cloud Kite is a tool that is filling that void. 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).
