"A new app for the iPad and Android devices uses a highly visual format to provide a different search experience for the tablet user. More than just a pretty interface, Izik—which debuted last month as the top reference app in iTunes—is based on Blekko, the search engine that boasts higher quality results based on human curation."

This search engine is designed for a tablet and provides some unique features. The visual format is based on categories so you can swipe horizontally to view additional entries, and or vertically to see more categories. Their website states "our goal is to have the practicality of the Web unfold at your fingertips in a fun and playful manner."

To download the app (iPad or Android) or to check it out online check out their website at http://izik.com/.

Social News Discovery: Pinterest Meets Flipboard - ROCKZi by Blekko

Social News Discovery: Pinterest Meets Flipboard - ROCKZi by Blekko | Cultura de massa no Século XXI (Mass Culture in the XXI Century) | Scoop.it

Robin Good: ROCKZi is a new social news discovery and sharing service launched by the human curated search engine Blekko.

 

The service intelligently leverages the great work done by its own human curators to generate a thematic news board that is an hybrid between the experience of Pinterest and the one of Flipboard.

 

From GigaOM: "...taking a cue from from other popular curation sites, ROCKzi was built to bring curation to a wider set of users through low-touch, passive curation tools.

 

The site surfaces fresh content from news sources curated by power blekko users and displays articles in topic-specific, searchable “news boards,” from “Geekery” and “Glitterati” to “SportZ” and “Red State.”

 

As of now, there are 33 boards but, over the next few weeks and months, it plans to expand to hundreds and then thousands more."

N.B.: Not only you can browse and discover news through the existing boards, but if you scroll below them, you will find a search box that allows you to dive and find news on ANY topic you want.
