Startup Idea: Integrate Cloud Services With Cortana/Spotlight
We all use a variety of cloud services, but when we search with Cortana on Windows 10 or Spotlight on Mac, our data doesn’t show up in the results. I often don’t find my documents when I need them because I have to remember to search in different products, and I don’t remember which one has which data.
A startup idea is to fix this via a plugin. When the user selects a result, it will open in the corresponding web site.
- 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.
