Things are getting more and more complicated in our lives. So are the technologies that are being built for our assistance. What we seek is just a matter of typing on our search engines. But, what about the search process? Should we say it has come across a phase shift from the traditional type and ask manner? The coming of voice searches, suggestions and recommendations has eased out a little bit in the filtering process for getting “what is appropriate for us” from the myriad of web links.
But with establishment of mobile platforms like the Android and iOS and their coherent massive app ecosystem, now it seems like everything is possible with an app.
Google Now for the Android that released earlier this year was an extensive take from the original Google search. It has its prediction capability to understand what users want judging on their search habits and gets more personalized results on that.
“Grokr” works just like that. But it’s an avatar for the iOS. The developers Grokr, Inc. has envisioned the app to re-imagine the mobile search to a level were “the knowledge and information that we seek will find us”.
Grokr is alchemized from five fundamental units namely the Grokr Knowledge Graph and Entity Rank, the Grokr User Graph, autonomous and predictive algorithms and the visually immersive Grokr information tiles.
With its knowledge data base synched with search algorithms Grokr understands what content you need based on your interests, locations and your time.
It will give you traffic updates before you start your trip, or instant updates on any breaking news or recommends you with a finest option of restaurants on your present location. Unlike other search and discovery apps, Grokr’s interface is in the form of tiles which updates with your entity.
Grokr will ask your permission to link your Facebook , Twitter and LinkedIn accounts to know about your likes, preferences, searches and like to get a better knowledge of you. This step is completely optional but it will give you a more accurate results. Experience Grokr from iTunes now.
