Hi Product Hunt, Hiten here 🤓. We launched FYI two months ago, and I’m super excited to share our new desktop app with you today. Our goal is to solve your biggest problem with documents: Finding them. Documents don’t just live in the cloud, they’re on your computer too. That’s why we’re launching FYI Desktop, one of the most requested features. Once you install FYI Desktop, you’ll be able to search and organize all your desktop documents alongside your cloud documents, all from one place! You can start using FYI Desktop on your Mac or Windows computer today and your local files will be added to FYI. We’re super eager to solve the problem of finding your documents no matter where they are, in the best way possible. To do that, we need your opinion. Please take a look at FYI Desktop and tell us what you think. You can use our in-app Drift chat, @usefyi on Twitter or email me at hiten@usefyi.com or @hnshah on Twitter.

@usefyi @hnshah Nice product Hiten and Marie. Could really use an instant search functionality though to be able to tweak queries as you type. Any plans on adding that?

❤️Marie here. The larger a company is, the more likely that important documents are sitting on people’s computers. And the more likely they are to get lost. I personally experienced this when I worked in corporate America at companies with 10s & 100s of thousands of employees. Meanwhile, there are more document apps than ever. They’re really easy to use… until you’re trying to find documents 😅. No matter what size company we’re working at, most of us are living in a document mess. We don’t remember what folder or app our documents are in. Who made them. Even titles and keywords are a distant memory. We just can’t find our documents. We built FYI to solve this painful problem. Letting people search for documents across their apps using FYI was a huge improvement, but you told us we had to do more. That’s why we’re launching FYI Desktop on Product Hunt today. This is one of the top 3 most requested features and we’re excited to release it. Our goal with FYI is to be the best way to find your documents, no matter where they are. We’ll always have a free plan for anyone to use. We’re eager to hear what you think and what we should do next. Tell us what you want 😻.

I don't know how I lived without FYI. I don't want to think about what life would be like without it. FYI seems to launch a magical elf who lives inside my computer and knows exactly where all the files are. It saves me so much time from wandering through folders and cloud drives. If you don't have it, get it.

I NEVER go looking for a document in Google Drive or Dropbox anymore...which feels amazing. I open a new tab (which is now set to FYI) - and 9 times out of 10, the document i'm looking for is right there in my activity feed. (because either I viewed it in the last 7 days, or one of my coworkers shared it with me). Saves me a lot of time hunting for documents.

Congrats once again guys. Been using and loving FYI so far, can't wait to give this a try! It'll be awesome if you guys consider adding support for videos although I know they aren't documents but with apps like Loom becoming so popular and video marketing becoming so important, finding videos is also a pain. In fact, I've tried searching for videos on FYI only to realise they aren't documents.

@irhymeth Great idea! We are thinking through how best to support formats that aren’t technically documents.
