Editors' Review

+

DuckDuckGo combines an anonymous search engine and a news aggregator into one modern app. The look and feel is streamlined overall, but with a slight lag when accessing the sidebar with a gesture. In terms of content, you can choose which sources should place their top articles in your feed.

Pros

Modern design: DuckDuckGo has been updated for iOS 7 with a beautiful flat design and edge and swipe gestures.

Multiple news sources: In the app's preferences you can enable various sites spanning a dozen categories to show their top articles on your homepage. Although you cannot manually add a site you'd like to see stories from, there is an option to email the developers with your request.

Anonymous search: Perhaps the biggest differentiator between DuckDuckGo and other search engines is the service's emphasis on anonymity. According to developers, they do not keep track of people who use their site.

Cons

Lackluster performance at times: Sometimes you may experience slight stuttering and lag with some interface elements, most notably the sidebar.

Bottom Line

DuckDuckGo does a good job of combining a newsfeed aggregator and a search engine into one app. Since new content providers are added by the developers, themselves, chances are that you will not be able to find all of your favorite news sites. Nevertheless, the app is worth having for the anonymous search alone.
