San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) July 21, 2009
Incandescent, Inc. today announced the release of Worldport® Navigator 2.0, an upgrade to 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 work on the mobile Web smarter and faster, finding and utilizing information on an iPhone or iPod Touch up to 50 times faster than traditional search. It is available on the Apple Store as a utility and productivity tool for the introductory price of $2.99.
Worldport® Navigator 2.0 eliminates minutes of wasted time typing in search engine entry boxes, scrolling through search results, and turning pages on the mobile web trying to find and load the exact page needed to accomplish a task or obtain information. Using human intelligence to anticipate user needs, it enables 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.
In less than five seconds, a user can simply tap the screen three or four times to identify an exact page for anything from weather to traffic, travel, restaurants, online stock trading and banking, government sites, Yellow Pages, local shopping by ZIP code, first-aid, search engines, social sites, online tools, games, videos, mobile log-in pages, and more. The user can then go to the website or, on an iPhone, auto-dial a customer service number, all in a fraction of the time of ordinary search.
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. Popular categories use multiple redundant sites, so users can find their own favorite information provider in each category. Users can even add their own most valuable sites to enhance their own personal Navigators.
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 processed and results are returned, Worldport® Navigator maintains its database of organized links to useful websites right in the iPhone itself.
Significantly, because most of the navigation occurs locally, Worldport® Navigator 2.0 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.)
"Worldport Navigator 2.0 incorporates key elements requested by our loyal users. We are offering an introductory price so everyone can try it. For anyone wanting to rapidly accomplish any number of mobile Web tasks, there is really nothing that can compare," said Brad Reddersen, Executive Vice President of Product Development at Incandescent, Inc., developers of Worldport®.
Worldport® Navigator is available for download as a utility and productivity tool at the Apple App Store for $2.99.
