Now search engine to find best app for you
New York: Navigating among sea of apps - multiplying with each passing hour - on your smartphone or iPad is not an easy task. How about a search engine strictly to find apps that suit your needs?
A California-based company called Quixey is now developing a search engine that can see inside apps to find what you need.
"The way people interact with the third-party apps installed on their phones is broken," Liron Shapira, one of the co-founders of Quixey, was quoted as saying.
"A search bar is the better way to use third party apps - and the Quixey vision is to put that search bar on every device," he added in a report published in MIT Technology review.
A prototype is already here that focuses on searching for places to eat and drink.
When asked to find a particular kind of cuisine, it serves up the highest-rated places nearby from review apps.
It can also show links to make reservations and check availability, the report added.
