October 1, 2013

Mobile app Kurrants takes over where traditional search engines stop by trawling and digging social media sites for crowdsourced results.

Singapore (PRWEB) October 01, 2013

Singapore start-up Holatastic Pte Ltd, a three-man outfit comprising former college mates launched today their answer to a souped up search tool that taps into the power and potential of the growing social media crowd – mobile app Kurrants.

“Kurrants is a personal social media search tool that puts the power of the crowd in your hands,” enthused Holatastic founding member Song Young, 35.

“These days, you can get a pulse on what people are saying about practically anything by plugging in to individual social network websites. But it can be a time-consuming, hit and miss affair digging for relevant content. The beauty of Kurrants is that it aggregates all the online talk on your search topic and serves it up to you pronto on your mobile gadget.

“Basically, if people are talking about it, with Kurrants, you’re going to know about it. This is a search tool that literally takes the sweat out of online research. Kurrants streamlines the search process and pools all the discussions on your search topic from various social media.

“With Kurrants, users gain access to the heart of discussions because the search focusses on social media content which is typically off-limits with search engines like Google or Yahoo. Kurrants promises users ease-of-use, speed, relevancy and results that are up-to-date. It’s a potent combination!” said Young.
