Swearch.me is a web app created by Steve Streza, a web and mobile developer. The app uses HTML5, CSS, and Javascript to deliver an elegant search engine experience in mobile Safari. Everything is retina display-optimized and lighting fast.

The current engines offered are Google, Twitter, Wikipedia and Flickr. When you visit Swearch.me on your iPhone, you see the Google engine first. Simply swipe your finger from right to left to switch between Twitter, Wikipedia and Flickr’s engines…

Each search page has a simplistic and polished look. When you enter your search query you are taken to the mobile site for each of the four services. You can add the web app to your iPhone’s homescreen for quick reference.

If you’re the kind of person who wants a nice, clean startpage for Safari on your iPhone, then Swearch is for you. And the best part is Streza is evolving Swearch into a more robust web app as we speak. Good things to look forward to from this little engine. What do you think?

    He had definitely made it faster. I have tried to use it for a little while now and it was just always so slow to start up. Will have to start using it again.

    Maybe I’ll try it again. Bit it was REDICULUSLY SLOW last week. Garbage in fact. Guess i shouid be glad the review is a week late and it’s been updated cause I was never going to try it again. Hope I’m not waisting my time again.

    After it’s bookmarked to the homepage still slow to open. And I gave an iPhone 4 on a fast connection. It’s ALOT better and usable but not “lightning fast” as this article claims. Although after it loads the searches are fairly quick.

  • Hi there, I’m the author of Swearch. Thanks for the comments. I’m working on speeding up Swearch right now. Part of the problem is that my web host tends to get slow in the face of a lot of traffic, so I’m looking at alternate hosting solutions that’ll be faster.

      Thanks for the time you have spent on this. Like I stated before it is faster than it was. It has come in handy.

    Nice sear…. Swearch page. But what’s the matter using it? When you click a link it open on Safari. I’m better now to stay on Safari, it open faster then. Maybe because I have a 3G ?
