App search platform Quixey today announced it has closed a $20 million Series B funding round that it will use to continue growing the company and developing its technology.
This round includes new investors Atlantic Bridge, SK Planet and TransLink Capital as well as returning backers US Venture Partners, WI Harper Group and Eric Schmidt’s Innovation Endeavors. Quixey’s total funding to date is now $24.2 million.
Quixey enables consumers to search for mobile, desktop, web and browser apps based on what the app does, rather than by name, developer or keywords. It does this by collecting data from blogs, review sites, social media outlets and elsewhere online, in a process it calls Functional Search.
The company says this makes it simple for people to find the app they want using basic natural language.
“Quixey was created to solve a huge problem,” said Tomer Kagan, CEO of Quixey. “Millions of apps exist and thousands more are being created every day across all platforms, but people can’t find apps in the moments they need them. Quixey is the only company that connects users with apps across all platforms.”
