Phlo for iOS 2.0: Your Universal Search Box Built for iOS 7

October 7, 2013

iOS 7 is here, and Phlo is ready for it. Phlo 2.0 for iOS is out today. With a new user interface, powerful new features, and a fresh icon, Phlo will feel right at home in Apple’s new operating system.

We have always believed in minimal UI design at Cynapse, and iOS 7 resonates strongly with our philosophy. We want our apps to be natural extensions of the device, built to feel intuitive in our users’ hands. Apple designed iOS 7 to be light and suggestive, using as little interface chrome as necessary. The interface of Phlo 2.0 matches the look and feel of iOS 7 with no unnecessary bells and whistles.

The new icon was designed to fit Apple’s iOS 7 icon grid system, so Phlo will look right at home on your home screen. The icon is an app’s identity, so the right design is crucial. Apple significantly changed the design language for icons in iOS 7, and it’s one of the most controversial changes. But after numerous iterations, we’ve found a design that describes Phlo beautifully while fitting in with Apple’s new paradigm.


Phlo 2.0 takes advantage of the new features of iOS 7 as well. It has new edge swipe gestures that let you jump back and forth between results from different search sites faster than ever before. It lets you instantly share links with people around you using AirDrop. And it uses Dynamic Type to automatically resize text to fit your device settings.


Phlo is your one app for every search, and it’s ideal for use in the mobile world. It’s the quickest, most convenient way to find what you’re looking for on any search site. And now it’s updated to fit the elegant design and powerful features of iOS 7.
