After 6 months and some incremental updates, we just finished our next major release, with many improvements and new features you will love.

Well, this is not merely an update, it’s rather a complete rewrite. Based on a new flexible architecture all of the previous limitations are gone.

While some of the better newsreaders for iOS are able to provide a dozen sources per page, we decided to remove all those limitations once and for all, both for iPhone and iPad.

The FAROO App now supports an unlimited number of feeds. The animation stays smooth as ever.

But thats not all. Here the complete list of the improvements:

  1. New architecture allows an unlimited number of streams and items per stream.
  2. New Google Reader Synchronization.
  3. New Archive function which allows to store articles for later reading.
  4. New RSS Feed search assistant to search for new feeds by person, topic or blog.
  5. New georgeous animated front page.
  6. New sleek animated transition between stream view and text view.
  7. New central menu for the new functions.
  8. New help function.

As always, this is an Universal App, running both on the iPhone and the iPad. And it is FREE. Get it from the AppStore right now.

You may have noticed that our home page got a fresh look. After four years, new products and much more users it was long overdue.

It now consistently presents our three core products:

  • P2P Search,
  • Real-time Search,
  • iPad / iPhone App.

With more users, we changed from the pure technology focus towards a more consumer friendly product page.

We hope you like it.

FAROO Search Grid reaches 1.7 million Peers

Share onTweet about this on TwitterShare on FacebookShare on Google+Share on RedditBuffer this pageShare on LinkedInShare on VK

Our network just reached 1.7 million peers, global distributed across the continents. This is probably the largest p2p web search grid in the world. This land mark also impressively demonstrates the scalability and maturity of FAROOs technology.

The number of connected computers surpasses even those in the datacenters of the biggest search engines.
FAROO Search Grid
Despite the huge number of peers, their global distribution, and the highly dynamic nature of the network, where peers dynamically joining and departing, we are reaching a latency below a second. The searches are fully distributed, without the support of any centralized entity, or any single FAROO owned server or peer involved.

Imagine there are a million volunteers, just waiting to assist you and to answer your questions. They live all over the planet. But you know only a few of them. And now suddenly you have a question, a very urgent one. It has to be answered within one second. And one of your volonteers has the answer, but you don’t know who.

You can’t call them one by one by phone, you even don’t know their number. Or visit them with your private jet, as you don’t know their address. But you can use FAROO, it’s just doing all the magic for you.

FAROO’s search grid is now powered by a combined 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 processor cycles per month. A giant number, right? That’s similar to the number of grains of sand on all the beaches of the planet Earth.
