Find things with ease using Central Search for Windows Phone

Today was one of those days when you spot an app in the Marketplace that not only sounds useful but looks real nice too. Central Search incorporates 17 different search options into one nicely presented app...

Many a time I have wanted to search for something in particular and not found what I wanted in the first place I looked. With Central Search you can glide between famous search sites all from within the app - clever. With a built in image viewer you can download images and even share them with friends via social media or messaging.

The user interface is not only made up of a nice color scheme but its fluidness and ease of use impressed me greatly. What I didn't realize until I was writing this is that the application actually mimics your phones theme and accent color - How cool is that?

Also packed into the app is a integrated web browser, browsing history, customized search settings and the auto-complete.

Central Search retails for $0.99 but does come with a free trial which gives you a certain number of searches. At that price it strikes me as pretty good value for money. You can grab it here.

Lots of apps integrate your phone's theme James, so it shouldn't be thaat cool if you've used Windows phone enough.
A few errors, most notably this one - "The user interface is not only made up of nice a nice color scheme but its fluidness and ease of use impressed me greatly."
How do I get around to writing for Wpcentral.com?

You sound more like a proof-reading editor than a columnist or writer

Perhaps. But I use windows phone to its fullest extent and follow its news/development so closely that I would give good insight within articles. Doesn't hurt that I enjoy the English language and have always hoped to write for a blog or news site such as this one :)

Wow. You call out the author on his experience, point out a typo, *and* ask how you might go about taking his job from him all in one comment? 
Stay classy, Vigor.

How about a QR code to the app, and not to someone email address.

Looks pretty good. I get more than a few OPENDNS results from it though. But it looks promising.

This app really isn't anything special, particularly if u have the folders app. There are different search engines and databases for a reason. I would still love to see a universal search function like in the wp8 voting article where I could search for specific words in web pages, docs, and pdfs

Pretty sure the "universl search is for things/apps that are on your phone - so web pages would be out of the scope
