We made a mistake posting the Boopsie app for CES 2010 and in fact the app you should be using is “coming soon” for Blackberry OS 5 devices. It is currently available for the iPhone and iPod Touch, so this may be of help to some BlackBerry users. With only 2 days left until CES, there is little time to launch the app but they also have a mobile site you can use at m.core-apps.com/2010ces.
Boopsie announced last week the launch of version 2 of their mobile search engine which covers Wikipedia, sports, weather, Google services, Facebook buddies, and a whole bunch of other channels. The kicker is that it works by inputting just the first few letters of search terms, and returns results automatically as you type, almost like SureType. Say, for example, you’re looking for a recipie on Epicurious for cranberry relish, and you just can’t bring yourself to type all those letters. All you have to do on Boopsie is type “cr re” and search results will pop right up. Standard cellphone users will probably get more out of this, but less typing is more time saved, no matter what device you’re packing. The only downside to Boopsie is that there’s a constant data transfer as you type, so make sure you have an unlimited data plan. If you’re set with that, you can download the free app over the air at http://boopsie.com/.
