Kickvox Launches Visually Stunning Mobile Search Engine
Startup Reengineers Search Engine Experience for Ever Expanding
TORONTO -- (Marketwire) -- 12/04/12 -- Kickvox, the company that has
reengineered mobile search, today announced the launch of its
application for iOS and Android mobile platforms. The
first-of-its-kind application provides users with a visual,
integrated and categorized search experience that is designed
exclusively for mobile devices. The result: faster searching,
browsing and navigation that provides users with the information they
need at their fingertips.
"Mobile search is broken. The search industry is conceivably the only
industry that looks virtually the same as it did a decade ago, yet
the platforms that we use to search the web have changed
significantly," said Alan Nowogrodski, co-founder and CEO of Kickvox.
"Mobile users don't want a laundry list of sites and cluttered text
they need to squint in order to read; they want visually rich content
that makes it easy to pinpoint what they need and move on."
According to Juniper Research, mobile search and discovery will
continue to grow into a $15 billion per year market by 2017. Kickvox,
still in beta, is perfectly positioned to capitalize on this market
opportunity with its intuitive interface that is designed for smaller
screens and often awkward keyboards. The company is pushing the
envelope in mobile search by delivering innovative features to users.
-- Shortcuts and Icons that streamline the search experience by providing
users with the ability to find what they want without having to read
massive amounts of text. The completely redesigned visual layout
offers an intuitive interface that is purpose-built for touch screen
-- Integrated Applications include Yahoo! Answers, Wikipedia, Yelp,
Rotten Tomatoes and more. Now users can search dozens of their
favorite platforms using a single interface avoiding the need to open
up multiple applications.
-- Visual Categorization that provides users with icons next to search
results to help them identify the best results more quickly. Different
categories include shopping, music, Q&A, movies, reviews,
educational and dozens more.
t Navigation that makes it simple to browse through the web. Users
never need to hit the back button on a mobile browser again. Kickvox
enables users to jump to the next search result with one simple click.
Kickvox' mobile-specific search experience will make the blue links
that defined the search industry for more than a decade a thing of
the past. Kickvox is now available free for iPhone and Android users.
