Why Quixey’s Functional Search Is a Reason to Get Excited About AppsApril 16th, 2011 | Posted by in App Trends | Functional Search | Vision
Today I wanted to upload screenshots to a site that only accepted .jpg images. First things first, I needed to convert my screenshots to .jpgs. Naturally, I went to Quixey because I was trying to complete a task. I Quixied “convert screenshot to jpg” and I was pleased to find not only did I have lots of options, but I had options on multiple platforms. See below:
I then selected Mac as my platform and I found DropJPG. This app made my day, I have been using it non-stop. It is a easy and simple way to get the job done. All you have to do is drag and drop your image file onto the DropJPG desktop icon and it automatically duplicates your screenshot as a .jpg file.
It is moments like these when I am thankful for Quixey. Apps are tools designed to make your life easier, and there is an app for almost everything. But apps are only useful if you can find them- and you have to be able to find them on the platforms you use. Every time you think, “Oh there must be an app for that,” I challenge you to try Quixey, because I bet that there is an app for that.
Just to demonstrate why functional search is necessary for the app world, I tested my search query in a content search engine. Here were the results:
With content search, I have to sift through lots of content. Most of it doesn’t help me and none of it completes my task for me. With functional search, I don’t have to read about how to do something, I can just find the apps that do what I want.
So once again, I challenge you: Next time you need help doing something- try Quixey. I think you’ll find it makes your life a lot easier.
Welcome to the the world of apps, it is a great place to be.
