San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) February 6, 2009
Incandescent, Inc. today announced the release of its breakthrough Worldport™ Navigator for the iPhone and iPod Touch.
Worldport™ Navigator is the faster and more productive way to use the mobile Web. Users can find and utilize information on an iPhone or iPod Touch up to 50 times faster than traditional search.
In less than five seconds, a user can simply tap the screen three or four times to Focus™ anything from weather to traffic, travel, restaurants, online stock trading and banking, government sites, Yellow Pages, local shopping by ZIP code, search engines, social sites, online tools, games, videos, mobile log-in pages, and more. The user can then go to the website or auto-dial a customer service number.
Not a search engine or search algorithm, Worldport™ Navigator is an editor-crafted collection of thousands of the most popular and useful websites integrated into a completely new and revolutionary interface that allows practiced users to select a web resource in three or four seconds, and then call or navigate according to their preference. Users can even add their own most valuable sites to enhance their personal Navigators.
It eliminates typing in search engine entry boxes, minutes wasted in scrolling through search results or websites trying to find and load the exact page needed to accomplish a task or find the needed information. Worldport™ employs human intelligence to anticipate user needs, enabling iPhone users to select from literally thousands of qualified web pages in seconds, including web or device content and phone contacts they have added themselves.
Unlike a standard search where a query is typed and then sent to the search engine host over a network, leaving the user waiting while the query is interpreted and results are returned, Worldport Navigator maintains its database of organized links to useful websites right in the iPhone itself. By selecting a subcategory just two or three times, the user can immediately identify the needed information from thousands of websites or phone numbers. With the iPhone responding instantly to each tap, a practiced user will normally locate the desired webpage in less time than it would take just to type the search query.
Significantly, Worldport™ Navigator offers blazingly fast website selection regardless of Internet connection speed, and without the need for bookmarks, delivering users to what they need, on demand, in seconds. (Load times following selection will vary according to device and carrier network.)
"We're excited about the opportunity to bring this new technology to the sophisticated iPhone user community giving them website selection and auto-dial speed they might never have imagined were possible," said Brad Reddersen, Executive Vice President of Product Development at Incandescent, Inc., developers of Worldport. "We look forward to bringing this product to other smart phone platforms in the near future as well." Worldport™ Navigator is available for download as a utility at the Apple App Store for $4.99, at http://tinyurl.com/cx3kgh.
