What’s special about Mobile Search Applications?
It’s mainly two points:
- form factor and
- device features.
That’s why our Mobile Client is specially-tailored for the restricted screen sizes and special haptic requirements of modern touch mobiles (like the iPhone or Android based mobiles). This empowers you to access information anytime from anywhere without any hassle.
You start simply by entering your query in the search field, as you submit the search, a result list will appear underneath it, providing only the most important information (document title and modification date).
Scroll down the list using standard touch gestures to locate the document of your interest.
By tapping a document in the result list a preview page will come up showing the metadata and contents of that document (as HTML preview). Simply touching the Results button will take you back to the result list.
Throughout the user interface, terms in the text matching your query will be highlighted to provide awareness of all relevant passages in the text.
If more results are available than displayed, the last element in the result list is a button “Load more results …”.
After clicking that button, a search for more documents will be started in the background.
As soon as they’re available, the button will disappear and be replaced by those results.
