As the app is not available on App store India, we cannot tell you about the performance of the app on iPhone but we have the opportunity to use the desktop plugin. Our Experience while using it:

1. Approach is innovative and it is a visual based search in which each website is converted in to visual experience rather than text.

2. Yahoo Axis plugin provides web search and image search.

3. Yahoo Axis has developed an ecosystem inside the plugin where a user can save the bookmarks of the website visited.

4. Yahoo Axis approach is new and innovative but it is completely new standard of searching on Desktop. How much it will attract users from Google search only coming months will be able answer.
