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.

The search features include:
- Bing (we know this is part of the search complaints lately)
- AP News
- Google News
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!
