Lenovo's Cortana add-in REACHit out of beta, adds easier file access to Windows 10

Back last year we first reported on the fact that the Lenovo REACHit app would be heading to Cortana on Windows 10 PCs. As we reported at the time, the app is an extension allowing a user to tap into Cortana on Windows 10 to offer “a much larger inventory of information to search." Today, though, we can report that the app has finally exited beta mode, and is now available for download in the Windows Store.

Overall, the app weighs in at around 5.23 MB and allows you to use Cortana to find files on different Windows 10 PCs and Tablets. Lenovo REACHit also allows you to use your natural language to do these searches to find content based on what it's about, where you were, or who you were with. Additionally, The Lenovo REACHit app allows Cortana to finds files and attachments in Exchange and Gmail accounts, and files in OneDrive, GoogleDrive, and Dropbox.

REACHit is a separate app which works alongside with Microsoft’s Cortana. Since Lenovo and Microsoft collaborated on this project, when the two are put together, Cortana will find you any content in any storage location that is connected to REACHit.

So, if you're interested in downloading REACHit, we have included a download link for you below. Once you do download please let us know your thoughts by dropping us a comment below!
