Phlo, the “type once, search anywhere” app is about to receive a new update. When it arrives later this month, Phlo 3 with come with a new lower price. Developer Cynapse really wants new users to buy the app now, however, before the price is lowered. To encourage this, the company is offering a special deal. Currently, the universal Phlo app costs $1.99. This includes the Phlo Sync service, which keeps all your search history and services in sync between your iPhone/iPod touch, and iPad. It also gives you the ability to use the Phlo Assistant browser extension via Chrome, Safari, and Firefox, on your Mac. When Phlo 3 is launched, the app will become free, but Phlo Sync will not. Instead, users will need to pay $1.99 per year to sync. To give back to current users, and to encourage new purchases, Cynapse is offering a lifetime of Phlo Sync membership. In other words, if you buy the Phlo app right now for $1.99, you will never have to make a yearly purchase for Phlo Sync. To qualify, you must purchase Phlo before the next version is released, and then sign up in-app for the sync service. To do so, tap the menu icon at the upper right, tap the (i) button, and then tap the Phlo Sync sign-up option. First released in July 2013, Phlo is like a one-stop shop for search. It automatically searches across multiple resources including Google, IMDB, Twitter, Wikipedia, and many more. For more on information on Phlo, see Christine Chan's original review. Phlo is available for download in the App Store.
