Keyword Search – Android App
This app was made due to necessity to find some work. It simply searched the Twitter and when the searched keywords are found, it alerts you via vibration and flashing LED.
The results are stored locally in devices’s SQLite database.
This app found me 3 jobs and 1 interview while it was still under construction.
Searching Twitter is fun, since Twitter has a lot of talk going on about everything, and Twitter gives you some very good options to fine tune that search. However, somethings are missing, like accurate location based search. Although Twitter does provide this option, but while developing this app, I noticed that this search was not accurate.
There are some limitations too which Twitter enforces, which restricts an app in its functionality. However, overall, using Twitter for searches on about anything is a good way to find out what people are talking about, and what’s happening out there.
