June 25, 2013 - Written By Alexander Maxham

In today’s app of the day, we’re checking out DuckDuckGo Search & Stories. It brings you a new way to better search and a brand new take on stories. You’re able to search anonymously, find new things instantly and find stories that you’ll love. By searching anonymously you can get some real privacy about what you’re searching.

DuckDuckGo does not track you, they don’t filter bubble you, and they don’t collect or share your personal information. So when you search on DuckDuckGo you are completely anonymous. Which is great news with all the NSA and PRISM stuff going on lately.

You can find instantly. Their app has tons of instant answers, which gives you less work to get to what you really want. You’ll be able to get answers from hundreds of sources, auto-complete to answers instead of just searches. And search directly on thousands of other sites with !bang commands.

DuckDuckGo only features the most shared stories from hand-crafted sources. Only #1 stories like most emailed or upvoted, no depressing news or graphic content, no repeat topics per day, readability view with search suggestions that tie search & stories together.

DuckDuckGo Search & Stories, is a pretty new app but it does have over 100,000 downloads, so it must be pretty good. It weighs in at about 1.1MB, so it’s relatively small. Especially when you compare it to other apps that most of us use everyday. Just like Google+, Facebook or even the Google Keyboard. DuckDuckGo Search & Stories has about 4.6 star on average rating. It has some really good reviews, which is always reassuring, especially when you’re looking at a new app for your device. You can download the app from the button down below.
