Mostly great


Sometimes it stalls out loading a web page. Also, when I choose "open in Safari" it should open the page I'm on and not just the search result page that I had previously been on.

The "home" button should be larger and on the bottom of the screen, sort of like the Google app had it. Right now it is small and awkward to press. Also the bang command button is very difficult to use, and seemingly not customizable, so I just type them in which is not ideal. A better approach might be to have a custom keyboard row with popular and customizable bang commands.

Edit: with the latest update I still think this app needs a redesign. A nice big duck button at the bottom, more accessible bang tag button.

Better than Google, in both ways!


DuckDuckGo is so far the only good browser I found that honestly gives me privacy and doesn’t put bias news on their homepage. Just go on google and you’ll see how racist and sexist they really are, victimising women, hating Caucasians and viewing men as evil abusers. But DuckDuckGo doesn’t have any of that, they only post the honest truth instead of biased opinions. Not to mention with this app I actually get some privacy as opposed to Google. Favouriting websites and searches is much, much easier. Other than some minor bugs, I would totally recommend DuckDuckGo!

You Search -- No Ads!


I've been using DuckDuckGo for 3-4 years and tell everyone about it. So popular that Google is copying them now. Still many people don't know about it.

No tracking where you go, what you like, what you buy. If you don't like distractions flashing and popping up when searching, then DUCK is for you. Every year they improve the accuracy and variety of answers.

Donate every so often to keep it FREE because they don't force you to look at ads. Good job!
