Greplin, the personal data search app, has gotten a new name and reason for being. Now called Cue: Know What’s Next, the service offers users a way to search their email, social media, calendar, and cloud storage accounts in one location, according to the Greplin/Cue blog.
First launched in February 2011, Cue provides what its creators call, “an intelligent snapshot of your day.” It does this by linking together your most important mobile accounts and then offers links to data from those sources, according to day.
Cue also offers a searchable index. This comes in handy, for example, when you need to find that archived email, tweet, or document.
Three types of linked accounts
Linked accounts come in three varieties: free, unlockable, and premium.
Free accounts include Gmail, Google Docs, Facebook, Twitter, Dropbox, and Facebook, among others.
Delicious, Pinboard, Tumblr, Reddit, and Google Reader accounts may be unlocked for free, simply by inviting someone to join Cue.
Finally, premium accounts may be added to Cue for $4.99 per month or $49.99 for a year. These include accounts from Evernote, Yammer, Salesforce, Highrise, Basecamp, and Campfire.
Note: One in-app purchase unlocks all of these premium accounts, as well as those that are unlockable.
According to the Cue Blog:
Cue is the best way for you to contact the people you care about, get where you’re going, and stay informed. We’ve changed our name to reflect the direction of our new service.
