Startup Idea: Integrate Cloud Services With Cortana/Spotlight

Target users

  • Desktop, not mobile.
  • Care about increasing their productivity, and about finding their data when they need it. As opposed to thinking, “What I already use is good enough.”
  • Are willing to pay

What makes it sticky

  • System tray icon (on Mac, menu bar icon)
  • Finder toolbar and sidebar
  • Share menu
  • Cortana / Spotlight. You search where you already search, and it just works. No need to change your habits and remember to use a new app.
