Grokr, a predictive search & discovery app for iOS, has been updated with a total redesign.

Grokr creates a unique, personalized discovery experience by constantly curating the world wide web to bring you exactly what you want to know, exactly when you need it. Your morning commute before you leave, a place for lunch before you're hungry, your favorite artist's next concert before you even thought to look, and all the latest from your favorite websites, in one beautiful app. Grokr finds you this information so you don't have to search for it: the knowledge you seek will just find you.

--A personalized and predictive search engine optimized for the mobile experience. Using entity-recognition, personal context, and an expansive and ever-growing knowledge graph, Grokr can bring you precisely the information you’re looking for without having to sift through those dastardly blue links. And with less typing too.

--The front page for your world: Grokr autonomously brings you content that you search for often: the nearest coffee shop, live scores for your teams, breaking news that matters to you, what’s trending on the web…always there, always new, whenever you want it.

--Ever missed a concert because you didn’t look? Left behind at work because you didn’t read that one article? Based on your interests Grokr will notify and deliver to you this information, before you even think to ask.

--Discover your world: Grokr learns what makes you tick, what makes you, you. By pulling information from your social media profiles, your interests, where you work and even the time of day, Grokr not only keeps you up to date with everything that you want, but also leads you to discover things you didn’t know were there.

What's New In This Version:
• Total redesign—simple, refined, and beautifully effective. A new design that’ll blow you away.

• New sports tile—brag about your latest victory or calling the biggest upsets of March Madness with the Brag button! The new sports tiles have support for all your favorite basketball, baseball, hockey and football teams.

• New local tile—better functionality and recommended local searches.

• New recommended tile—stories and topics that Grokr knows you’ll want to know about.

• New events tile—concerts, events, and the birthdays that matter.

• Adding News Sources and Sports Teams—a better way to add your favorite news sources and sports teams to your interests.

• Personalized notifications—your commute time the moment you’re about to walk out the door, breaking news for you, tomorrow’s weather, and tonight’s tip-off/kick-off/face-off.

• Beta-tile for new features—for all the big ideas we have in store for 1.3 and beyond, we’ve made a tile that’ll let you test out features and let us know what you think!

You can download Grokr from the App Store for free.
