DuckDuckGo Launches New Search & Content App For iOS

duckduckgo-logoDuckDuckGo (DDG) has launched a new iOS app called Search & Stories to go along with the Android app that’s been available since late 2011.

The app offers many of the same features as DuckDuckGo’s Web-based search engine, particularly the anonymous searching that has earned DDG a lot of media attention after the NSA/PRISM privacy scandal and helped double DuckDuckGo’s search activity in just a few weeks.

It’s called “Search & Stories” because the company has added a social news discovery piece to the app’s home screen. Stories are chosen based on their “proven social value,” according to today’s announcement.

Here are a couple screenshots from the app download page.

It’s a free app that’s built for the iPhone and iPod Touch and is available now on the iTunes App Store.
