At CTIA 2010, Las Vegas, Yahoo! announced two new location-aware apps for Apple’s iPhone and iPod touch in 22 countries across North America, Latin America, Europe, and Asia, and can be downloaded for free from iTunes: First is, Yahoo! Sketch-a-Search makes searching for restaurants on the go incredibly easy. You don’t have to type keywords or even thinking about search terms. You simply draw a line on your phone’s map with your finger to see local restaurants within that area. Later versions will include a plethora of other businesses and destinations—including Vegas casinos and shows, eventually. And second is Yahoo! Search iPhone app, which brings the breadth of the Yahoo! search experience to the palm of your hand, getting you the contextually relevant results you want, fast. All the bells and whistles are included: embedded maps, localized query suggestions that display as you type, intelligent search history, voice search—basically, the whole enchilada, and information from Yahoo! Finance, Yahoo! Movies, Yahoo! News, and other sources that appears directly in the results.
