Leap2

Leap.it (formerly Leap2) consists of industry veterans focused on one simple idea…make search better. That idea has spawned a mobile search app for iOS, Android and Windows and a social search platform, Leap.it.

Leap.it delivers web page previews, relevant images, videos, news stories, local listings and real-time social results in one engaging, visual interface. Leap.it also allows users to collect search results into “Perspectives”. Perspectives can be followed, contributed to, commented on and shared socially. Relevant and socially influential Perspectives add valuable insight to search.
