Because users simply cannot settle for one good search engine, AOL decides to jump in on the Apple iPhone bandwagon and adds its own mobile search support for the said device. And today, beta AOL® Mobile Search for the iPhone goes live.
AOL says that this new mobile search service was especially optimized for the iPhone, offering a rather verbose introduction to saying that this will give users Better Answers, Faster (as one of their tag lines is fond of telling us). This mobile search service taps into AOL’s Moviefone®, MapQuest®, and AOL® CityGuide services, among others, as well as the Web and the mobile Web of course.
AOL also brags that their Mobile Search for the iPhone was specifically designed (Really? It wasn’t an afterthought?) for the iPhone’s mobile Safari Web browser, bringing up fancy terms like AJAX technology, multi-touch surface, and automagically to say that this will be one kick-ass mobile search service. But isn’t this just a re-branded Google search with added benefits? Anyway, you can head on over to AOL’s official search blog to watch a video that shows the highlights of this new app.
If you own an iPhone, don’t forget to check out this new development by going to search.aol.com. And while you’re at it, why don’t you type in “best mobile search engine” and search it up just for the heck of it?
