OneRiot and Nambu, a social messaging desktop application for Apple operating systems, today announced a partnership that enables Nambu users to see real-time web search results while searching from within the app.Real-time search engine
OneRiot's Tobias Peggs said the new capability is "a key feature. They are the first of these type of desktop applications to offer real time web search results in addition to the usual Twitter conversation search. This means Nambu users don't just keep track of conversations, but they also get to find related fresh content (news, blogs, videos, etc) as it emerges on the real-time web."
OneRiot's real-time search results show content indexed within seconds of its appearance on the web through social sharing sites such as Digg and Twitter. Nambu is among a growing list of services to recently join the OneRiot Realtime Search Partner Program and gain access to their search API.
"OneRiot's real-time web search engine is the best way to find fresh, socially-relevant content from across the web," said Eric Woodward, CEO of Nambu. "Now our users can track realtime conversations on any topic, and discover new related content at the same time. It's a great combination."
In addition to OneRiot real-time web search, Nambu now offers Twitter and FriendFeed search to index conversations and links. The search offering is rounded out with Yahoo! News, which provides feeds from AP, Reuters, and other outlets.
"With the increase of noise and spam in real-time conversation search," said Peggs, "it's good for the users to also have real-time content search. Now you can track a term ... see what people are saying, and also discover emerging content. It's a nicely rounded experience for the user."
Here's an example of what those results would look like; OneRiot results are highlighted:
