That 10 second video is exactly how search should work on every ecommerce store. Web and mobile.

This is awesome. We've been on Algolia for about two years now and are just blown away with the ease, reliability and speed of searching. Their existing libraries and tutorials were already pretty good for getting up and running but this consolidated but modular approach is just golden and will make it just that much easier to implement and refine. Thanks guys!

Oh this is good! Back in the day of running Scoutzie, we needed this for our site and there wasn't a good off-the-shelf solution, so we spent weeks building and refining a solution that worked for us. It worked well, but it also sucked up too many hours of our lives. Then of course there was maintenance time. Being able to pay someone for good search and plug this into a site in minutes, now this is amazing!
