Great search and news app. I don't give it a five simply because I wish I could add my own sources. There is a suggestion mechanism but that is not what I want

You will never, ever locate the story teased on the live tile. And the 'stories' that are linked are the sort of thing that would cause you to block the friend sending them. Know your audience. No one seeking privacy, is reassured by cutesy photos of a dog with a birthday cake, etc.

I did not feel particularly safe or secure with this app. The real DuckDuckGo website is completely no frills, not sure why they would load it down with sponsored links that you can't even turn off. Seems to want to lull you into a false sense of security. Uninstalled.

The Search Engine That Gives Privacy

Much better than Google and Bing. A must have on all my Windows Devices!

It's Not Terrible!

My favorite way to use this app is to pin its search to the Search charm, so that no matter what I'm doing, I can just pop open the Search charm and immediately start searching. It opens the DuckDuckGo app, and from there I get my results. The problem? It seems that bang syntax (like !wiki for Wikipedia) from the search charm can cause IE10 to crash, for whatever reason. Other than that, works well!

DuckDuckGo is a recent find and a great search engine! I like the featured stories and being able to start my searches in this app.

Works ok.

I go to DDG for the neutral search results. But the app seems to focus on presenting ms-store-like menus for news etc... I'd be happy enough for a simple search w/o all the fluff.
