Izik – A Revolution in Search for the iPad

Izik is a free app for the iPad that takes search to new levels. The best way I can describe it is Flipboard for searching. Izik was created by blekko, Inc. – the search engine company. As you can see in the example below, search results are organized into categories. You swipe left or right to view additional articles/images within a category and swipe up or down to move between categories. The categories displayed will depend on the search and its results.


Click on any item and you are taken to the originating site using a simple browser built into the app. From here you can share the item via Facebook or Twitter or open it in Safari. I understand that developers are planning to include an email option in future updates. Already impressive, I’m looking forward to watching this app mature.
