And that leads us to the matter of where to find such apps. Of course, more established and popular ones usually have their websites, social media coverage, and ad campaigns for you to check out, it is not the same with newer widgets. In that case, the most obvious choice would be to check out an app store of the marketplace that you use. Be it Shopify, Magento or Woocommerce
, you can find lots of useful apps in their stores, even if some widgets may be unlisted on store pages. If you have stores across multiple platforms, it would also be good to check whether your chosen Search App supports all of them, as many decide to focus on only one or two at a time.
Among multiplatform search apps that work on Shopify, Magento and Woocommerce are Searchanise, Klevu, Instant Search+, Findify, and Algolia. Those are also among the biggest and the most popular search apps and extensions for e-commerce. That allows them to expand their reach not only to Shopify, but to, for example, Magento
In case of just Shopify, however, you will need to search not only its App Store but also use Google, because some search widgets were unlisted lately, for example, Algolia. While other major companies, such as Searchanise, remain, it will be good to look in other places as well. Though I should warn you: any app not included in the official Shopify App Store is a potential risk, as it was not vetted by the marketplace. So be careful with what you are installing.
