A Personal Search Engine
Apse is a different kind of search engine that runs on your computer. It's a cross between bookmarks and a search engine - it lets you search your computing history, so you can look up everything you've seen in one place. It's best for people glued to their screen - software developers, researchers, recruiters, or anyone who works online!
Search for modern users
Ever lose something on your computer? There are things search engines just can't find - files on your machine, emails, deleted pages online. Apse is designed to find those things other search engines can't.
Apse automatically captures text from your screen as you use your computer. It saves you a copy, so recalling it is at your fingertips. Apse makes sure you never lose important information again. Find out how.
Where did I see that? Even if you only remember a word or phrase from what you are looking for, Apse has you covered.
How It Works
Apse runs in the background on your computer. You use your computer normally, and it captures text from your screen using an AI-based computer vision algorithm called OCR.
Results are stored in Apse's search index. You can search Apse just like any other search engine, but Apse won't show you spam or irrelevant results - it only shows what you saw.
Apse works on desktop and laptop computers. These operating systems are supported:
Apse respects your privacy. Apse doesn't have ads, and won't track you. Your data is not for sale - you are never the product.
Apse is independent, and runs on your computer. It doesn't send anything to the cloud, so your private data stays private. You control what data to keep or delete, forever.
