Imagine being able to complete your web searches faster than ever before. By eliminating needless steps you can get to almost any page in just a few keystrokes. You’ve got to experience it to truly understand its power!
Want to search for a product on Amazon? Maybe find some photos on Flickr? Or get some information on Wikipedia or find a video on Youtube? You can do all that and more incredibly quickly in 4Eyes.
★ Unique keyboard-driven interface...
To perform a search, type a command followed by your search term. For example, typing in “g digital slr cameras” will search Google (‘g’ for Google) for the term “digital slr cameras”.
Want to find information about the Empire State Building? Type in the command “wiki Empire State Building” and hit GO, you’re instantly sent to the Wikipedia page. Quick, easy, useful.
★ No more waiting around...
It’s the little things that will save you time. The app uses short text commands, typically one or two letters long, saving you typing time. Why type “Wolfram Alpha” when you can simply type “wa” and get the same results.
The keyboard is always present meaning you can start typing away instantly, no more need to tap a text field to get it to focus. It may seem small, but having the keyboard instantly available will shave seconds and minutes off your search time over time.
★ Not just the web...
Want to do a quick search for an app in the App store? Or maybe find a place in Google Maps? Doing a search for either of these will open their respective apps, directly on the results you’re looking for. 4Eyes can even open your email client and third party apps like Instagram.
★ Save your favorites...
Maybe there’s a search you find yourself doing repeatedly. Eliminate the need to keep having to type it over and over again by adding it to your favorites.
All your favorite searches are stored and displayed in the main menu. A simple tap instantly opens the web browser to that page. Your favorite searches and search history are displayed in the main menu, giving you quick, immediate access.
★ Facebook & Twitter integration...
When you’ve found the page you’re looking for you may want to share it. You can perform basic actions like copying the url to the clipboard, email or sms the link and open in Safari. Social sharing sites like Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr are supported as well as Instapaper, Pinboard, Read It Later & Google Reader.

What's New in Version 1.3.1
• Added Longreads.com command (lr)
• Added Stackoverflow.com command (so)
• Fixed an issue with the 'time' command
Good. On my dock.
Excellent idea! Works well! I'd really like to see the ability to edit/add shortcuts. That along with some minor UI modifications (also, the app tends to crash with multitasking) would make this a 5 app!!!
EDIT: Been crashing a WHOLE lot lately. Care to fix it? Pretty please.
Not for the average user but for someone who uses Alfred on a Mac
Excitingly innovative and useful
