Google Search is one of the entries on the growing list of Google services that I no longer use. Search results are muddled with advertisements, and it’s clear that producing accurate outcomes is no longer a core goal of the company. I switched to DuckDuckGo for these reasons, and so far I’ve never looked back. For the most part, DuckDuckGo’s search results are comparable to Google’s, and it even offers encrypted Google searches for things such as images.
Even though it delivers excellent results, it’s certainly not going to win any beauty contests, and the iOS application is prohibitively homely. Bang On is a dedicated DuckDuckGo search app that takes all of the great things about the service and wraps them in a beautiful package.
