Do@, one of the Startup Battlefield finalists and Bing Decision Award winner, unveiled their search engine for mobile apps at TechCrunch Disrupt NY. The search engine combs the directory of mobile apps based on keywords and returns results best suited for the user.
The most convenient feature is the speed at which it returns the list of apps. In a demonstration, a search for "Justin Bieber" yielded apps that played music, movies and videos, from Youtube to Pandora. Directly from the search engine, videos and music were played with the same quality as if you'd launched the individual app. A search for a product will return bargains, reviews and the option to purchase directly from do@.
Currently the app is only available on iPhones. However, with the announcement, during TechCrunch DisruptNY, of $7 million in funding, expect the Android app to be on the way.
