Q Search – cool widget for Nokia 5800 / N97.
I found a cool Nokia 5800/N97 widge called Q Search which was created by Russell Beattie. You can go and download it at Russell Beattie’s Weblog. It’s essentially the Nokia HTML search tool with some added shortcuts, and it is these shortcuts that make the whole search experience a lot better.
For example: I want to search “Go Ape” and I want to see all the “videos” people have taken. Normally one types that in the search tool and the results are a mix of videos, news, blogs, websites and you end up scrolling through loads of useless links. Not anymore if you use the Q Search widget.
So I load up Q Search and type in: “v go ape” and Q Search gives you all the Youtube Videos as results. It seems to only gives you Youtube video results, which I can live with as I use Youtube.com a lot, but I guess if you are not a Youtube.com fan, then this widget is not for you, but don’t forget about all the other options.
Other shortcuts that can be used before your search word are:
Google (g), Wikipedia (w), YouTube (v), Google Images (i), Twitter (t) and Definr dictionary (d).
I think it’s a brilliant application / widget and a must have for both the Nokia 5800 & N97.
