Gugal

Alternative Google Search app.
Alternative Google Search app built with Jetpack Compose, using Google CSE.

Gugal is lighter than the official Google app and has a modern, Material 3/You UI.

To use Gugal you need a CSE ID and API key. Instructions for obtaining both can be found in the app. To get these values you have to have a Google account, therefore Google might still link searches to your account.
