Navigating among sea of apps - multiplying with each passing hour - on your smartphone or iPad is not an easy task. How about a search engine strictly to find apps that suit your needs?

A California-based company called Quixey is now developing a search engine that can see inside apps to find what you need.

'The way people interact with the third-party apps installed on their phones is broken,' Liron Shapira, one of the co-founders of Quixey, was quoted as saying.

'A search bar is the better way to use third party apps - and the Quixey vision is to put that search bar on every device,' he added in a report published in MIT Technology review.

A prototype is already here that focuses on searching for places to eat and drink.

When asked to find a particular kind of cuisine, it serves up the highest-rated places nearby from review apps.

It can also show links to make reservations and check availability, the report added.
