You are probably wondering, "Why not just use Facebook’s Application Search?"

Here are several compelling reasons to use Clever Hippo:

Quality Full-Text Search

The hippo performs a crawl of the Facebook application directory, indexing and prioritizing all relevant application meta-data. This process yields a richer data set than a search that just includes the application summary.

Refine Your Results

  • Sort by Daily Active Users
  • Sort by Percent Active
  • Sort by Most Recent Apps
  • Get Specific – narrow results by using advanced search techniques such as OR, NOT, wild-card, or boost queries
  • Screenshots – the application’s screenshot is available on the search result page for quick viewing

Search Metrics

See what search terms are popular – Clever Hippo aggregates search queries hourly and provides a ranking of the most popular search terms.

Terms are search-able and broken down into time slices – last hour, day, week, month, and all-time. We hope the search metrics feature will be especially interesting to App developers looking to develop what the community is craving.
