Searching Facebook Apps with Clever Hippo
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
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.
