HOT! Giveaway: SearchIt App for BlackBerry, Brings All Your Searching Needs In One

January 18, 2010 | By | 19 Comments

SearchIt is a search tool/engine that you can have on your BlackBerry, and especially for those who are grieving the loss of their normal search to Bing. There is hope through ¬†SearchIt. And SearchIt searches several sites, leaving the power of the search in your hands. It’s the answer to your lost search. SearchIt is available in the BlackBerry Sync Store for $2.99 regularly, but you are able to purchase it for $2.49 until Jan 23rd. The description of SearchIt is as follows:

Need a quick way to find the information you want? The default BB Browser limits sites you are able to search it. With SearchIt, a pop up gives you quick access to a variety of site which you can search from. Also has the option to add custom sites.

Now with BOLT and Opera Mini 5 support!

Suggestions pop up live as you type.

Recent searches are saved and can be accessed by one click.

Customizations include adding SearchIt to the system menu, hiding sites you do not want and adding a custom site.

Can be assigned to a convenience key and works with launcher apps such as Quicklaunch.

Highlight text in another app and select SearchIt from the menu and the highlighted text will automatically be put in to the search bar.

The search features include:

  • Google
  • Bing (we know this is part of the search complaints lately)
  • Yahoo
  • AP News
  • Google News
  • CNN
  • Wikipedia
  • Dictionary
  • Thesaurus
  • AllRecipes
  • imdb
  • Youtube
  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • Amazon
  • eBay
  • NewEgg
  • flickr
  • GoogleImages
  • CBForums
  • BBForums
  • BerryReview

I downloaded and installed the SearchIt onto my BlackBerry Tour 9630. The app installs quickly. It works as it says, allowing you to create your own search options, to delete those you don’t want, and to add those you do. I find it to be the perfect solution for the Bing search complaints. It’s also fast. You can click on the SearchIt icon, then choose your search engine by clicking the ball or the options button to change them. And as you type your search object, the possible search objects begin to populate below, with the app guessing what you might be looking for.

It works very well, and I can really get used to this, by allowing search to be even easier. Don’t take my word for it, we have a really great offer for our readers. Shao has been gracious enough to give us some copies to giveaway. We have twenty copies of SearchIt to giveaway, and here’s the deal. Leave us a comment why you’d like to have SearchIt using a valid email. I’m going to send you a code for a free copy to the twenty most creative answers. So comment away and good luck!

    Why I would like searchit.

    1) Because I ‘lose’ everything including my underwear. Using this app I can search for almost anything (maybe I have to rely on my wife for the clothing bit) but everything else

    2) One must never rely only on the ‘elephant in the room (read google) but allow for various search engines to provide a wide choice of links

    3) Because one like to win stuff

    4) I am a canadian who can’t afford much given the charges I have to bear by the mobile carriers I have

    I can Go on but though these were my top s reasons to get this app

    I would like searchit because I search a lot on my BB. Being able to search more than a dozen sites at once will save me time and battery life. Since it’ll find what I’m searching for faster than me searching from website to website. Thanks for contest. Hope I win a copy.

  • yyoo

    I’d love a copy of searchit! It’s a great app that would allow me to be a lot more productive when searching online.

  • OP

    I have 7 different search engines on my BB, I’ve added the most used one in Quicklaunch, but this would make it even easier to quickly search for things while on the move :)
