We Believe...

Swiping, tapping, and waiting for screens to load is slow

A universal search UI can fix this problem

Android was always meant to be an open system

The raw data to build the most powerful universal search is there, but no one has stitched it together into a smooth experience

Respecting user data = long term success. Your data stays on your device. We dont store it. We don't sell it. (see exceptions for bug fixing below)

We make money by making a good product. Sesame is a 100% voluntary purchase
