Mountain View, California (EastBayDaily) — Web search innovator Searchme Inc. announced today that iPhone users are enthusiastically adopting its visual search technology, making Searchme’s app for iPhone one of the most popular free utility apps currently being downloaded at the iPhone App Store. Ranking among the top of all free utility applications since launching last week, the Searchme iPhone app marks an evolutionary step in mobile search and is the first search engine with a user interface designed specifically for the iPhone and iPod Touch.
Searchme lets people see web pages without having to click through. This makes searching the web considerably faster. Results are presented in a stack of pages that people can flip through or expand with their finger, so they no longer have to wait for results to load into a browser. Once the person finds what they’re looking for, they simply double tap the screen to open the page. Searchme’s patent pending “category suggest” technology understands each query and suggests appropriate categories as a person types, allowing them to get only the results they want.
“It’s great to have such positive response from the iPhone community,” said Randy Adams, Searchme Founder and CEO. “People really like being able to quickly preview web pages and flip through them before deciding to take the time to load them in the browser. With Searchme you can preview 10 web pages in the time it takes to load one the browser — a real benefit to users. We are gratified by all the great reviews and we are carefully listening to suggestions for improvement and plan to update the app very often with lots of new features and improvements.”
About Searchme Searchme is an innovative way to search the Web that uses patented visual search and category suggest features to deliver relevant, meaningful results faster, to every kind of Internet user. Searchme was founded in 2005 by Randy Adams and John Holland. The company received initial funding from Sequoia Capital.
