Even Microsoft has to work really hard to compete with Google on search. So how might Leap.it, a small startup of Kansas City, take on the world’s biggest search engine?
Leap2 has a new mobile search app that’s pretty useful as well as a $1.6 million first round of funding. The Kansas City, Mo. startup combines web searching and social in a compelling package.
The team behind Leap 2 is repositioning the app as not only a place to search for things now, but also as a mobile tool for extending that search out into the future for topics you want to stay on top of.
A small Midwestern startup is rethinking the way we use web search on our phones by tweaking the now-standard Google layout. Their solution: a mobile app called Leap2, which is set to launch Tuesday in the iOS App Store. It’s initially for the iPhone only.
