App search company Quixey has partnered with browser technology company Skyfire to create a new app discovery tool for Android called Skyfire Horizon.
Using a toolbar embedded into Android browsers by participating operators, it integrates Quixey’s discovery technology to allow mobile users to find apps that are relevant to the content they are viewing.
For example, if a user is reading content on ESPN, Quixey will recommend apps from this content provider as well as other relevant sport titles.
Users are also offered a Quixey search bar at the top of the apps page, to enable users to search for apps to help them achieve a particular task.
Quixey secured US$20 million in funding in June which it plans to use “to expand its world-class team, drive global partnerships and further develop the company’s ground breaking Functional Search technology”.
