Yandex releases mobile social search engine

Published on .

Moscow—Russian Internet and search engine company Yandex has released Wonder, a social recommendation engine for U.S. users of Apple Inc.'s iPad and iPhone. Wonder is a voice-and-text-activated app aimed at supporting U.S. Facebook, Foursquare, Instagram and Twitter users.

The move builds on Yandex's announcement in October that it plans to expand internationally, and in particular to compete against Google Inc.
