Spezify – Serving Up Search Fresh

spezifySpezify does a good job of representing search results visually and it’s kind of fun. The big thing I like about Spezify is the navigation response with the keyboard arrow keys. Try it! Left… right… up & down. Maybe if the results returned more of one kind of result based on the direction you navigated instead of just loading more results, it would be more useful. Example: If I do a search and I want to see what people are saying about the latest whatever, I’ll probably be searching for tweets. So, if tweets are shown above the middle of the returned search result screen, when I navigate up, I would expect the engine to return more tweet results rather than a potpourri of media and sites. Overall, I like what they have done but I think it needs a bit more work before it will actually get used for a lot of searching.
