App of the Week: Leap2

Comments [0]

Leap2 is a search tool that allows users to enter a search word or words and submit that search across multiple places simultaneously. Results are returned from Internet search engines as well as a number of social media sites, such as Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn. I was surprised how quickly this cross-domain search was able to return results.

One powerful feature of Leap2 is the ability to set “Alerts”, so that Leap2 searches for something and lets you know when it finds it via an updated tile on the Windows 8 home screen.
