Its faster than launching chrome or safari
What i hate about doing a quick search in chrome or safari is that all of your open tabs have to load on launch. This is just a simple app that gets you to your sites fast. The only problem i have with it is that the swipe function takes you to your other search sites instead of going back or forward. Im so used to using that gesture in almost every other app. I wish there was just a toggle to enable it. Other than that its a great app.
Phlo is one of my most-used apps (it's in my dock) because it replaces so many other functions/apps for me. It's such a simple concept - a single search field - but being able to modify the searches to non-mainstream site search functions is hugely powerful.
It's reminiscent of Hobbyist Software's "Genius" app for Palm, but polished and tuned for our shiny iOS present.
The Cynapse developer team is quick to answer questions and address issues, and they make great apps. After you buy this, go buy LocalScope too!
Why go back in time when you can just save time?
Can't find that rare album on iTunes? Try searching Amoeba Records... maybe Discogs? Why do you keep flipping through Netflix when you know it's all just re-runs? Try something like Ovguide. Using Wikipedia for that college term paper? Just give up now. Save sources and customize search for what you really need... time. Don't just Bing it.
