We Believe...
• Swiping, tapping, and waiting for screens to load is slow
• A universal search UI can fix this problem
• Android was always meant to be an open system
• The raw data to build the most powerful universal search is there, but no one has stitched it together into a smooth experience
• Respecting user data = long term success. Your data stays on your device. We don’t store it. We don't sell it. (see exceptions for bug fixing below)
• We make money by making a good product. Sesame is a 100% voluntary purchase
• In user centered development:

Can it search all settings shortcut from the device? I use Huawei hisearch and it can search all the settings buried in each section of the settings. I would love to buy it if it can search all the settings.

UPDATE: Received an email from Google stating this app will not longer have Gmail access after July 8th (I believe) due to a new Google security policy. Not certain what's going on, but this is sad news. ☹️
