Leap2: Global & Mobile Searching Made Smarter

Posted by Jennifer Allen on August 13th, 2012
iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

Leap2 is the latest app that aims to make it easy to search through social media, as well as other web results.

Referred to as a 'living search platform', the app makes it simple to browse through all kinds of search results at once, covering both web results and real-time hits from people. It's the kind of resource that should prove particularly useful in times of breaking news or sports results, as well as providing a great way of gauging public reaction to something.

This all sounds much like Twitter's trending topics, but the bonus to Leap2 is that it incorporates more than just Twitter. Users create a 'leap' they're interested in to receive continuing updates which stems from the likes of Bing, Yahoo! Local, Foursquare, Yelp and Twitter. It's all very simple to browse yet potentially quite powerful.

Adaptable for everything from the latest news, hype about a new movie or the local weather report, Leap2 is an interesting and free way of checking out plenty of different viewpoints at once.

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

If there were a single purpose that smartphones specialize in more than any other, it would be searching for random bits of information out of the clear blue sky.  Who knows when the random sports fact or vindicating morsel of information might come in handy, so why wouldn't you want to use the mini-computer in your pocket to do the legwork?

But in this world where there are an immense amount of searching options at your disposal, sometimes it can be quite difficult to determine the easiest way to find the information that is needed.  This is why the app Flex Search 2.0 is so helpful.  Not only will it find the necessary data in no time flat, but it will use a multitude of the best tools and search engines available to make it all possible.  Utilizing sites ranging from Google to Bing and everything else in between, this is a piece of software that makes searching both fast and smart.  Give the free version a download and let us know if you feel the same way in the comments.
