Great app. functional, customizable to my liking, gets the job done, no clunky-ness(if that's a word.) straight to the point but also very elegant and detailed.. Usually you have a very beautiful program but something about it bothers you. Or, you have a very functional program but it's just an eye sore to look at.. Duckduckgo is the best of both worlds. And this is coming from a guy who used google for years.. Googles great, but DDG is the future of Internet searching.
Fantastic app and search engine
This app is great. Not only have my searches given me more relevant results than Google or Bing (more sites with real data instead of fluff articles) the app is faster and more intuitive than either. I love the Stories option as well. Setting DuckDuckGo as my default engine on mobile and desktop.
Only complaint, I can't seem to save images on an image search, which keeps me using Bing and Google for images. Please fix if possible.
And um. People writing reviews: this is a search engine, not a web browser. No they're not the same.
Do Not Track is Great, but a Few Suggestions
I have switched from Google to DuckDuckGo mainly because of the fact that the latter doesn't track my searches.
I haven't noticed, as other users have, that it offers more relevant results, but I still like DDG because it produces good results.
Google is probably a better search engine in terms of results, but it's creepy how much data they collect. Therefore, I can't with good conscience have Google be my primary search engine anymore.
That said, I have noticed that I will go to Google when I am not satisfied with DDG's results. Of course, this only applies to the times when I don't particularly mind being tracked.
I have one suggestion for DDG. I like being able to filter my results by date and some of the other filters Google has, like searching for a certain size or copyright status for images. If you could implement that, DuckDuckGo, you would definitely be at the top of my list.
