- How capable the handsets have become and how uncapable are normal beings to use them beyond the dialing functions, even finding someone in the addressbook can be a challenge or a long operation, and the problem is not the user.
- How bloated with features these handsets are and how long it takes even for advanced users to learn how to reach and use them, to learn complex and sometimes semi-logic menu structures and logics.
- How much information/media is now stored in the handset: Contacts, SMS, emails, Appointments, MP3s, Photos, Videos, Applications…
On the other hand, I’ve seen many people getting completly addict to Google, it’s power and simplicity.
I’ve see these people using Google and typing “Amazon” + [enter] then click the first result, instead of using the address bar even if they perfectly knew the URL.
What this teaches us is that the search engine has become a natural/default interface for many non advanced users that just want to browse the web.
I think that now, you see me coming: We need a search engine for handsets that explores the whole handset’s data and capabilities and gives results immediately. The results can be pure data like a contact name but also actions such as “Compose an SMS”.
So here we are, I’m introducing today mobease’s first product: “mobease findit!”.
Here are some early screenshots of a pre-alpha version:
