From Google to YouTube, Now iTunes Instant

Written on September 14, 2010 by B Waldorf

Google and YouTube has already followed the 'Instant' trend. Now, here's another 'Instant' we should watch out. iTunes Instant was coded by a 15 year old kid you want things to be a little bit organized.

From Google Instant to Google Maps Instant and then YouTube Instant.We have another “Instant” coming. Guess what?! It’s iTunes Instant.

The surprising fact is that it was created by Stephen Ou, a 15 year old boy gebius. iTunes Instant is basically a search engine for iTunes. Ou made this because, “Search within iTunes.app is extremely slow and cluster, I’ve never used it. So I use Apple’s Search API instead, and develop[ed] this app in less than three hours that will make your life better.”

Testing the app reveals amazing results. A search to eliminate jams and declutter with accurate results in real time. It doesn’t work when searching both artist and song though.

Ou’s actually enterprising, “I use Apple’s Affiliate links,” he explains on the site. “If you click on a link and buy an item in iTunes, I will earn 5% commission. I won’t make loads of money, but it does always help.”

Who knows, Apple might offer Ou a job just like what YouTube did to Feross Aboukhadijeh.

Google shares its psychic ability with Google Instant Search. First desktop, then mobile.

Expect the unexpected guys, but this fall Google Instant Search will launch its first mobile phone app.

Earlier today, the search titan released its Google Instant to the people of the web. A dramatic change to Google’s search engine delivering for real search results as you type without the click of the mouse. As a matter of fact, the company calls it “search before you type”. Because Instant Search will predict what you’re about to type and delivers search results based on predictions.

Today’s big announcement marked the change in the search space, but this didn’t give satisfaction to our icon. It wants mobile dominance too.

Instant Search for mobile works just like the desktop app. Start typing a word and Google delivers search results that you might want. A few restrictions though was tagged along, 3G connection speeds, no tab button for some phones and not all mobile phone can support this. But the demo looks charming. We wish it works best on iPhone and Android phones. Google also noted that some of their mobile apps will support this new feature.

Sneak peek of the Google Instant Search for mobile:
