Free Search Tool ChunkIt! Gives You X-Ray Vision Into Search Results

Beta Testers Report Finding Information Faster Online With ChunkIt!

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - October 9, 2008) - TigerLogic Corporation (NASDAQ: TIGR) today announced the public availability of ChunkIt! (http://www.getchunkit.com), a new free search tool designed to help people find better information faster on the Web. Since the beta launch in April, ChunkIt has focused its efforts on enhancing the search experience by retrieving the valuable information hidden behind the hyperlinks on any Web site or search engine, including Google, Yahoo!, AOL, Ask and MSN Live Search.

How it Works:

--  Searching for that needle in the haystack?  ChunkIt! instantly
    searches and previews the valuable information hidden behind the hyperlinks
    contained on any Web page, saving you valuable time lost from clicking on
    lame and irrelevant links.
--  Upon doing a search using ChunkIt!, it essentially finds the relevant
    "chunks" of information hidden behind links and brings them forward with
    the keywords highlighted, so users can more quickly find the information
    they are looking for.
--  Additionally, ChunkIt! has proven especially useful in finding
    information on web pages with a lot of text (e.g. long Wikipedia entries,
    books on Project Gutenberg or SEC EDGAR filings).
    

Who ChunkIt! Helps:

ChunkIt! helps people save time, whether you are a shopper, student, teacher, parent or business professional, by making almost any search task on the Web faster and easier, including:

--  Online shopping -- ChunkIt! shows the keywords users are looking for
    in item descriptions and product specifications, saving lots of time in
    online comparison shopping on sites like eBay and Amazon.
--  Academic research -- ChunkIt! seamlessly previews the valuable
    contents stored within the links of research sites like LexisNexis, JSTOR,
    ScienceDirect and Wikipedia.
--  Searching news sites -- ChunkIt! makes it easy to find stories about
    the specific topics users are looking for on news sites with countless
    links like the Drudge Report, ESPN.com and Perez Hilton.
--  Reading blogs -- ChunkIt! makes it easy to review which blog posts
    contain the subject matter users are looking for without having to read
    through every single post.
--  Classified items and apartment hunting -- ChunkIt! lets users dig deep
    into Craigslist to find classified items and apartments with the features
    they want in a snap.
--  Investment analysis -- ChunkIt! takes the hassle out of looking
    through the countless pages of SEC financial filings.
    

What People are Saying:

--  During the beta period, 96% of users surveyed reported that ChunkIt!
    helped them find information faster on the Web because the tool searches
    for and displays the actual content containing their keywords from any
    search engine results or links on any Web page.
--  "ChunkIt! is an awesome search tool," said Daniel Khalessi, a ChunkIt!
    beta user. "I've downloaded many search tools to try and help with school
    homework or specific Web searches, and in the end none really helped me
    find the information I was looking for. Now that I use ChunkIt!, I can't go
    back to basic Web searching. ChunkIt! is an intense power-search tool that
    saves me hours of time searching through Google results and Web pages, and
    goes above and beyond what I've seen any other search tool do."
--  According to research by Microsoft, roughly a third of Web searches
    don't get answered correctly on the first search and first click.
