The Searchme visual search app is up on Android Market. The new free app is billed as a next-generation search engine that is visual-based rather than text-based. Searchme will send images of web pages and other search results to your smartphone, allowing you to quickly pick the search result you need.

At least, it's supposed to be quick. Searchme claims 4 million monthly users now, and a growth rate of 180% since January 2009. If those numbers are accurate, then they just might be onto something. One of the annoying things about search engines on smartphones is scrolling down through a long-list of small text search results. If Searchme is able to send relevant, readable page images as search results, it could greatly speed up smartphone browsing.
Since it's free, there's not much to lose by downloading this new app. Download it, try it out, and let us know what you think about the idea of a visual search app. Searchme is already available on the iPhone and the iPod touch, so even non-Android users can give it a shot.

The continuing advances of the digital age rely on creative people trying new things. Searchme probably isn't going to usher in the next great age of search engines, but it's at least a step in a new direction. As our mobile technology develops, the way we use and view the Internet is going to continue to change. The Internet today is already a much different place than it was ten years ago. It's more connected, more ubiquitous, and something that revolves around a great deal of people who are online almost every waking moment of their lives.
