    Pros: 

    Helps me find documents much much faster. It is intuitive and is something that I have wanted for years.

    Cons: 

    I would like to integrate it across more places and folders.

    Ultimately it is ridiculous that I can find a random fact on google faster than I can find a document that I saved yesterday. The way we nest files for organization directly impacts the speed at which we can recover them. Haystack is like having the power of a google search across all of your various document storage locations.

  • Pros: 

    - Super quick setup - Easy to navigate and add integrations

    Cons: 

    - Perhaps additional integrations, otherwise its fantastic!

    Haystack is simply magical! Now that I've been using it, I can't imagine working without it -- Its the best way to quickly navigate to and across all your online docs and files

Hi @ericfriedman, thanks for hunting us! We created Haystack because we wanted a way to search for everything on the cloud without giving up our privacy. Questions like “where that document is”, “which is the latest version” and “what was that website again?” suck up far too much of people’s days (and energy). Privacy was one of our biggest focus, which is why Haystack doesn’t store any of your data in the cloud. Everything is local. We build a search engine on your computer while also getting results directly from your cloud accounts, so you never have to look in more than one place. It’s fast, doesn’t take up much space and makes finding and sharing information really easy. We’ve built Haystack for Engineers (keyboard shortcuts), Designers (beautiful UI) and everyone in between (Searches 20+ tools). In our early testing, it saves people over 20 minutes a day. We’re still adding more and more integrations, so if you have one in mind let us know. We love feedback, so please share it below! Thanks again @ericfriedman - we appreciate the love and if anyone has any questions, I’d be more than happy to answer them. Thanks!

I’m really excited to hunt Haystack with you today. Haystack is a chrome extension for anyone that wants to know "where is that file?". I had the pleasure of working with Charles (CEO) while at Expa and excited to share his new service. The great thing about Haystack is that your privacy is protected - no data is stored or accessed by the service (even your logins). If you need to search across cloud platforms in a safe and secure way - checkout Haystack. Charles has been working hard on bringing this to Chrome and is here today to answer questions and chat with folks who try it out - download it now and let us know what you think!

So far, I'm quite impressed! I use google drive for a lot of my business documents. Right out of the box, haystack has boosted my productivity finding and opening these google drive files. I'm excited to keep exploring the product to see how else it will help my workflow. I will definitely use the "collections" feature which can save a group of browser tabs I have open for one project that I need to work on later.

@eric_chaves Thanks for checking us out! Really glad you love the collections feature, its one that seems like it wouldn't work in a search tool, but I think it really gets us closer to the first place people go to for creating and continuing work.

This is one of those rare finds that is so simple to use that you wonder where it's been all this time. Why did nobody make this before? Super quick and solves a common everyday issue we all face. Nice work Charles!
