‘Digle’ wants to gamify search for uber-specific queries

As user-friendly as Google is, sometimes complex searches are best left to the experts.

UK startup ‘Digle’ wants to change the way we search for hyper-specific queries. Rather than digging in and sorting through pages of un-optimized sites, Digle gives you the option to hand the task off to someone else. These ‘Finders’ are then tasked with the grunt work in exchange for badges, higher positions on the leaderboard, and credits — which are redeemable for cash.

Ever been to a tech festival?

TNW Conference won best European Event 2016 for our festival vibe. See what's in store for 2017.

For example, if a user needed to find the best deals on a Palm Springs weekend vacation in November or December, or a Mini Cooper in London for under $10k, they could hand the query off to Digle’s Finders and offer a reward for the searcher that found what best matched the search query.

It’s never going to replace a quick Google search, but for queries that require more digging than you feel like doing, Digle seems like a pretty cool resource to keep handy.

If you’d like to try Digle it’s available on the web, as well as iOS and Android devices.
