Simply point Safari at You can also view the site via your desktop computer at The directory has 16 categories, including News, Sports, Videos, Images, Music, Movies, Television, and more. Click on a category, and Seego gives you the top 12-15 sites in the initial screen. Clicking on a link at the bottom brings up a list of subcategories for that particular category.
