Windows Phone App Review: proSearch

Here's a handy Windows Phone app for those who do a lot of searching. proSearch pulls thirteen search options each with up to seven categories all under one roof.  Search options include Google, Bing, Yahoo, Wikipedia, Youtube, IMDB, Tumblr, Flickr, Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, Ebay and the Windows Phone Marketplace.

proSearch is laid out simple with your keyword field up top, your search options center stage, and control buttons at the bottom of the screen. Button controls give you access to the About Screen, a link to the developer's website and Settings.  proSearch's settings are under construction and will become available with a future update. 

proSearch for Windows Phone

proSearch's search options are vertically scrollable as are the categories within each option. Once you've entered your keywords, chosen your search options hit the search button and the app sends you to the web for your results.

All in all, proSearch is a nice app for your Windows Phone that pulls a decent amount of search options under one roof. I like how Youtube, the Marketplace, and Wikipedia are pulled into the mix but wouldn't mind seeing a search history page added on down the road.  Or maybe pull the browser in-house so you don't have to leave the app to view your results.  Regardless, proSearch isn't a shabby app and worth a try.

proSearch is a free, ad support app that you can find here at the Windows Phone Marketplace.

Although it has not been updated in ages, I still prefer Terra Explorer for all my web searches. A search for "golf balls" gives me; Web results from Bing, Google & Yahoo, News from golfweek.com, usatoday.com, worldgolf.com, etc., Wiki from wikipedia, Local sources for golf balls, Videos from YouTube, etc, and Images from all over. All with a single click, and a few swipes with a nice panoramic view. And yes, it does save recent searches, and a bunch more. With this app, you sort of have to know what the results will be before you define your search. Seems like extra work to me.
