Yahoo Launches Local Search App For iPhone
Yahoo's new app for the iPhone, Sketch-a-Search, brings local search results within a sketched boundary drawn by the user.
Yahoo has launched a new app for the iPhone, called Sketch-a-Search. It promises to simplify local searches without needing to type keywords or search terms. The app has a split screen with a Google map on the top and blank slate on the bottom. Simply drawing a boundary (in any shape) on the map fetches local businesses in the search results within that boundary on the bottom part of the screen.
