A new app from iOS software engineer, Steve Streza, gives users access to a number of search engines from its interface. While the app is as slick as many iPhone app, it doesn’t use Apple’s iPhone SDK, it’s a Web app.
[ad#Google Adsense 300×250 in story]Made with HTML 5, Swearch gives you the ability to search Google, Twitter, Wikipedia, or Flickr. To change the search engine, simply swipe left or right and the interface, and search engine, will change.
“Weeks of time and research were spent fine-tuning the performance and behaviors of the app, so that the scrolling and gestures are fluid, natural, and responsive,” said Streza. “Swearch has a home screen icon, a splash screen, and is presented without the usual Safari browser controls.”
Swearch uses GPU-accelerated transforms and HTML5 Offline Application Cache to improve the overall user experience.
Available for the iPhone, Streza said it will available for the iPad and Android soon. You can use Swearch by visiting the website.
