Have you ever wanted all of your Gmail attachments in one place? Try Attachments.me [iPhone]

Attachments.me is a unique app for you iDevice that keeps all of your Gmail attachments together in once place. After signing up for Attachments.me service, the app securely scans your entire Gmail account for attachments and downloading them to Attachments.me. As you can see by the screenshot, the attachments are then displayed to the user much like the Facebook Wall. This allows you to keep track of all of your important attachments sent and received. Attachments.me also allows you to search for the attachments using the text in the file name and even the original email message, which is an outstanding feature.

Another strong feature of this app and why I think it is such a necessary app is that you are able to create automatic filing rules that will send your attachments to the cloud as soon as you send them. This ensures you will always have a backup of whatever file you send. The cloud backup of Attachments.me supports Google Drive, Dropbox, and Box.

    @Josh Kowaleski:

    Does it search body text while automatic filing rules if subject is chosen .
    because i have sender, filename and subject same but the body text differs for the attachments saying for whom the attachments is. i have to file the attachment in that folder whose name is mentioned in the body text. there are 17 mails recd monthly with same sender, subject and file name saying for eg september.pdf only the body text says the salutation and name for whom it is.

    so if i put in automatic filing , subject as “xyz” then file in dropbox/xyz, subject as “abc” file in dropbox/abc……..will it search subject and body text both (then it will work for me) , or only subject is searched (not body text) then it would fail for me. even for filename only the filename is searched or content is searched. (however it will be useless for me) as the pdf attached are password protected.

    please reply at dlthakkar@gmail.com

    @JT:

    Hey there, I’m a designer at Attachments.me. Just wanted to mention – that thing you said about searching inside of the attachments themselves – we actually do that!

    We index the contents of the documents so that when do a search, you’re actually searching the contents of documents as well.

    Glad you’re enjoying the product!

    Cheers,

    Josh

    Believe me I would’ve made many more mistakes than you! I only meant to help, as I’d want someone to let me know as well. You both do an awesome job with the articles. I look forward to them and the opinions each day.

    I think this review, and the Proximity review got mixed together a little bit.

    Would really be nice if Attachments.me could search inside the documents attached too. The e-mail content search is nice too, and filing rules are always helpful. Thanks again!
