Tap That App
Forget Google. Search with Do@ insteadMove over, Google. Do@ is a hip, visual way to search for stuff online.
Is it just me or is anyone else bothered by the fact that Google Search returns are so freaking boring? Look at all those plain blue inks. I mean, come on. Blah. Anyway, I'm Jessica Dolcourt for CNET and I'm gonna show you a far cooler way to search for stuff on your iPhone. This, my friends, is Do@. It's a new free app and it uses the idea of categories to help you narrow down your search, so let's say that you're looking for information about a movie that you wanna see. Just type the title and pick the right shortcut from the list. Instead of waiting through those generic results, Do@ will actually bring you live webpages from popular websites. Just keep swiping through until you find the one that you want. If something's out of place, you can easily delete the ones that Do@ gets wrong. The sites that you 'heart' are the ones that you'll see more often in your results list. Okay, so I mentioned before that the sites are live. That means that you can tap them and interact exactly how you would in the browser. Heck, you can even buy movie tickets if you want. When you're all done, you tap the 'Tab' button in the bottom right to return to the main list. Of course, no app would be complete without sharing options to social networks, and Do@ has those, too. Oh, and Apple also offer to help you install a native app if there is one. There is more than that, too, and I talk about some of the other features in my hands-on review on CNET.download.com so check it out there. If you've got other suggestions for great apps to cover, send them along to email@example.com <mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org>. I'm Jessica Dolcourt and until next time, keep on tapping.
