Quixey Launches its App Search Direct-To-Consumer

Quixey, Inc. launched a new product that extends its enterprise-grade app search platform to consumers for the first time. Available for the Android operating system in the Google Play store, Quixey's new mobile offering uses its powerful Functional Search technology to help people find the right app for any need. Until now, most app search has been based on titles and keywords, so users need to know the name of an app before they can search for it. With Quixey's app search, users can describe what they want to do in simple terms. Then Quixey's Functional Search dives deep into unstructured data from the web, including reviews, social media and blogs, in order to find out what apps really do and deliver the most relevant app search results in a simple interface.
