Version 3.0.1

Really Like This App! - For some reason Google's Quick Search Box has stopped working in Mavericks, and I use it frequently. This app works the same way but has some added features that I like. You can use any one of the 34 search engines available in the drop down menu. Also, there is an ability to set a hot key for launch which I like. This is my goto search program now. Cudos to Synapse for a great job, and thanks for making it free!

Version 3.2
Review by squalamack

good stuff with a caveat - I like it and I like syncing with the essential iOS app. However I wish the look of the search box was a little less “heavy."

Version 3.2

Super super useful. minor complain - I have been looking for a simple app like this without all the bagage that Alfred has. It worls fine and has not crashed. Thank you for making this. request: Make a wikipedia summary available on the app UI issues: Cannot change the order of services. Menu icon is weird in dark theme. !!Your app sends usage data every minute to & (even without sync setup) You are being to nosey. How about once a launch?
