izik Gets A Warm Reception On iTunes

By: Chris Crum - January 9, 2013

Last week, Blekko launched a new search app for tablets called izik (pronounced EYE-zik), and apparently it’s received a decent amount of buzz for its debut. The app debuted as the top free reference app on iTunes.

The company says in a blog post, We launched izik, our search app for tablets, last Friday and are amazed at the responses we’ve received! Thanks to our users, on day one izik was the #1 free reference app on iTunes and #49 free app overall…We are delighted that there is such a strong desire to see something fresh and new in search, and that our vision with izik is so well received.”

“The twitterverse has been especially active in spreading the word about izik,” the company adds. “We’ve seen a lot of comments about the beautiful design and interface, the useful categories, and most importantly the high quality results that make izik a truly viable choice for searching on tablets.”

If you haven’t had a chance to check it out yet, take a look:

The app is also available for Android, and there’s a working web version, but izik was created specifically for tablets.
