Search Tool

 

Description

Search the web with Google, Yahoo and Bing in a smooth, streamlined and efficient way without heavy navigation

Use Search Tool for any type of search, be it casual search or heavy research on a subject

Search

* See results in a scrollable gridview, much more overview than the usual result list

* Switch search engine, topic (web, news, images, video, books) , region and time frame with just one tap (options differ by selected search engine)

* Tap a result to see a preview of the website in a popover

* Tap the preview to instantly see the website in full screen or dismiss it

History

* Already visited websites are clearly marked in search results – helps you to check whether other search options yield interesting results you didn't see before

* Get back to all recent searches and visited websites

* Re-run any search you have done

* Re-open any website you already opened before

* Export a list of all visited websites with title, description and link via email for archiving or further processing

Websites

* Save and share interesting websites by email, Read It Later, Instapaper, Delicious, Pinboard, Twitter and Facebook

* Open website in Safari or copy link to clipboard

Search Tool is very flexible to fit into your workflow.

Instead of opening a search in Safari, going back and forth between the search results and websites, bookmarking everything out of fear to loose the best sites (or forgetting to bookmark and searching for that site again) you simply can:

Just start searching, have previews of interesting results, change search settings – in a smooth way, without heavy navigation. After you're done with searching around you can easily recapture, what you've searched and what you've found. Then save or share the most interesting / valuable results

Remarks:

* Google: Web, News, Images, Videos and Books search

* Yahoo: Web, News and Images search. News cover the last 30 days, search can be refined by setting shorter time frames

* Bing: Web, News and Images search

* Region settings cover: US, DE, UK, FR, IT, CH

* Due to restrictions in APIs, search results may vary from the results you get on the search engine's website

* Specifically Google may show different results and sometimes less results than on Google's website

* Also not all search options available on the search engine's website are available through the API. Some search options can therefore not be implemented

* Currently there is a maximum of 200 history items (history can be reset any time)

Stripped down functionality

:
While not a terrible app, this can be one to skip. There are a number of issues that should be addressed, not least of which is the image search. There is no way to refine results based on size, color, date, or relevancy. As for regular page searches we do not have an auto complete feature, a way to consolidate searches from more than one engine, or result suggestions.

All in all I'd say wait until this gets a little more fleshed out before spending the cash. The search stings you can export are nice and the ui is very polished... I just wish there was a little more going for it.
