All of search engines in one place – Ask Ziggy

1 July 2010Entry by

Internet is the best place for searching informations, where we have Google – probably the best general search engine (in my opinion), and many specialized sites for movies (like IMDB) or Wikipedia for encyclopedic information. Right now you can search any of them using Ask Ziggy application on Nokia N900.

When you run the application you have a list of available search engines, every one has it’s own options, like language for IMDB and Wikipedia, or ‘from’ and ‘to’ languages for translator. Everything is easy to use, touchscreen friendly and quite fast, in my opinion faster than opening the page and using search in there. Search results are shown as buttons, so if you find what you need you can easily go straight to exact address for desired information.

As for me it looks really nice, quite simple application with really wide coverage of information space around the network. Not only google or wiki pages, but also weather or delicio.us bookmarks, not necessarily serious, also for fun. Everything in one place, I think it’s worth to try.
