Mumbai, India – Cynapse today is proud to announce the global availability of its newest app Phlo, for the Mac, the quickest way to search your favorite websites. Phlo is designed to make it quick and easy for users to lookup what they want directly on a website of their choice with just a few keystrokes.
Phlo can be summoned with a configurable global hotkey from anywhere on the mac. To search, a user simply has to type the search phrase and then hit Tab to choose the website that they’d like to search in. Phlo quickly filters the websites and search engines as the user types and automatically bubbles up the most used sites. For example, a user can type “The Hobbit” and then choose the site “IMDb” to search from and the results will be displayed on their default web browser.
Phlo provides an efficient way to gain insight or do research on any topic for power users. With the option to use keyboard shortcuts, Phlo can save many precious seconds that can have a great impact on the researcher’s workflow. Phlo further simplifies internet research by letting users search in multiple sites at once using simple keyboard shortcuts.
“Searching the web has become a natural behavior of people. More often than not, people search in familiar websites or search engines like Google, Linkedin, Yelp, Gmail or Ebay. We designed Phlo to be a nifty app that skips the overhead of switching to a browser, loading the homepage of the desired website, and then searching there. Instead it directly presents users with the results on their favorite site.” said Dhiraj Gupta, CTO, Cynapse. “Its a super-charged web search box for your Mac!”, he added.
Phlo gives users a running start with a great set of default search engines and websites, including Twitter, Facebook, Amazon, Google search and many more. But Phlo is not limited to the pre-installed sites as it packs a nifty interface to add and manage websites to search with.
