Atlas Informatics calls it quits after less than a year

Atlas Informatics calls it quits after less than a year
From TechCrunch - October 18, 2017

Atlas Informatics, whose Atlas Recall promised an intuitive and powerful way to index all your information across many services, is shutting down less than a year after launch. There will be no long sunset period: all user data will be deleted next Friday, the 27th.

I wrote about the Seattle-based company last November; the idea was to create a sort of personal search engine for every email, website and Slack conversation, organizing it by name and topic while keeping things simple and secure. So you could search for PDFs related to my bank loan and boom, there theyd bechange PDFs to contacts and theres your finance adviser, the customer service people from the bank and so on.

It seemed like a great idea to me, but I never got to try itRecall was limited to Macs and iOS, neither of which I use full time. Whats the point of a perfect recall if it only covers half of what you see and do? Planned Windows and Android versions never materialized. For a product aimed at the professional world (not to say enterprise), thats a big blind spot.
