GOOGLEJACK is an Android application that developed and designed to provide a both technically and visually enriched keyword search engine for application users. Along with its cool appearance, it is equipped with user-friendly features.
Our first motivation for our Arts and Computing class project was to visualize Google Instant results. We thought of its limits and how to visualize it. In a progress of 16 weeks of study and experiments, both technically and visually, a keyword search engine evolved. We visualized acquired results from Google Instant and limited that wide range of results with auxiliary verbs; is, can, will, has, do, must. User directed to two main alternative ways after results screen; going to search page of Google by single tap to result box or starting a new search with a new keyword that chosen from a result box by holding and pressing. It aimed to motivate users to search more and more without control of relation between keywords, wondering about new things. Additionally, separate screens of a map designed for user to represent whole keywords that are searched by the user in a session.
