BerrySearch v1.0 is now available for free over-the-air download by pointing your phone at http://thebogles.com/berrysearch.jad
This version adds IMDb autocomplete and search to the Google, Wikipedia, News, Images, and Techorati Searches of previous versions.
- Shortcut key sequences allow you to quickly change the search type: “g:” for Google, “i:” for IMDb, “d:” for dictionary, and so forth.
- The “Edit Settings” menu item allows you change the network connection type to BES (if your company has a BES) or Direct (for using your carrier’s APN, which you should configure as described here: BlackBerry Internet - MSN/chat/web/telnet/TCPIP - No BES!
I would appreciate input from users on the following question: is it better for BerrySearch to exist as a separate application from Berry411, or should Berry411 be a swiss army knife that does everything?
(Much of the context specific autocomplete in BerrySearch is now supported in Berry411 as well, in a slightly more complex form. For example if you begin a search in Berry411 with “g:” for Google or “imdb:”, the appropriate style of autocomplete is used.)
