Taptu Adds Real-Time Search to Its Mobile Apps

Taptu, a mobile search engine that specializes in indexing mobile-friendly websites, just launched a new version of its iPhone app. The new app now includes real-time search results, which are powered by OneRiot. In addition to including these real-time search results, Taptu also worked hard on improving the speed of the app and on providing more relevant search results. Taptu offers apps for the iPhone, iPod touch (iTunes link) and Android, as well as a mobile optimized website.

Taptu first integrated real-time search results from OneRiot in its mobile web interface and in its Android app last month. The mobile apps definitely provide a far superior way of using the service than the mobile site, however.

There are two ways to access real-time search results in the app. The homepage now displays the hottest trending topics, and a single click on one of these opens up OneRiot search results.

In addition, you can also do a normal search and then select “latest buzz” from the options menu right next to the search box. This same menu also allows you to restrict search to images, videos, blog or Wikipedia articles, as well as to sites and blogs about sports, news or apps.

For a closer look at Taptu’s feature set, also have a look at our review of the service’s web app.
