Yahoo Launches New iPhone Search Applications
By on March 23rd, 2010

Yahoo has introduced two new mobile search apps. The first one is Yahoo Search iPhone app and the second one being,Sketch-a-search. Yahoo Search iPhone app is an integrated search service for the Apple iPhone including a number of interesting features like voice search and Shake to Clear(clears the last search when you shake the phone).

This fully featured search tool also provides information from Yahoo Finance, Yahoo Movies, and Yahoo News into the search results. The search application also takes advantage of location information and provides search results that are relevant to the user’s location. The Yahoo! Search for iPhone app is currently available in only 22 countries across North America, Latin America, Europe, and Asia, and is expected to cover the other parts as well.

The more interesting of the two apps is Sketch-a-search. The service works by allowing users to sketch a boundary on a map encompassing a specific location. This app will then, provide you with local information including restaurants and local businesses. It is really amazing because without even typing keywords,you get the search result.

The release of these new application shows that Yahoo has continued efforts to stay involved in the growing mobile industry. Well, we hope there is a lot more to come from Yahoo.
