How about a search engine strictly to find apps that suits your needs? A California-based company called Quixey is now developing a search engine that can see inside apps to find what you need.

"The way people interact with the third-party apps installed on their phones is broken," Liron Shapira, one of the co-founders of Quixey, was quoted as saying.

"A search bar is the better way to use third party apps and the Quixey vision is to put that search bar on every device," he added in a report published in MIT Technology review.

A prototype is already here that focuses on searching for places to eat and drink. When asked to find a particular kind of cuisine, it serves up the highest-rated places nearby from review apps. It can also show links to make reservations and check availability, the report added.
