We have been working hard at Taptu to refine our application on the iPhone and iPod Touch platform.’a0 We believe our app is a great addition to the touch web and brings all the highlights of touch-friendly content to your fingertips.
With that in mind, we’ve released a new version of the application into Apple iTunes App Store.’a0 There are a few notable changes.
User Interface Improvements:
These include a few minor changes to make it easier to utilize all the functionality of the Taptu Search Application. The most notable change is that the “Orbital” function is now an actual button.’a0 This feature was present in the last version of the application, but many users missed it because it wasn’t visibly noticeable as a click-able (tap-able) button.
Now, if you click on the button in the upper right – you can see the awesome functionality which lets you refine the scope of your search by just searching images, twitter, and so on.’a0 Also, you can see related search terms based on what you enter.
Finally, we’ve implemented a new Settings tab in the App that lets you refine how the Taptu Search App behaves.’a0 The new tab will allow you to set user preferences in the App, without having to go to the iPhone’s settings bar.
We have also made an effort to tidy up the Sharing options. As before, you can still share out your results via email and SMS, or on your favorite social network such as Facebook or Twitter.’a0 We just cleaned up the interface a bit.
In another change, if you launch the App after having it closed – it will load up the last search you executed.’a0 This change is a direct result from user feedback we’ve attained since the App debuted in July.
Please Give Us Feedback!
As you can see, this minor update addresses a few of the concerns our users have given us since the launch of our iPhone/iPod Touch application.’a0 In fact, two of the changed items mentioned above came about because of feedback I’ve received from our user community.
So, the bottom line is – we’re here and we’re listening.’a0 So please connect if you have issues, comments, or concerns about our application.’a0 We’re always looking for ways to make our applications and service better!
