Finding information quickly is imperative for journalists. Here at Journalism.co.uk, we regularly use site search tool Alfred, the subject of a previous tip, to quickly search computers, websites, and the wider internet with a few keystrokes.
On his Digital Inspiration, Amit Argawal has put together a guide on creating shortcuts for your smartphone that will sit on your home screen like apps. Shortcuts for Twitter, YouTube, Google, Wolfram Alpha, Wikipedia and others are included among others, as well as a guide to making your own shortcuts for any other site.
From there you can collect your new search shortcuts together to make regular searches just two taps away when using mobile. It may not seem like much, but sometimes the little things can make all the difference.Tags: advice, journalism tips, Mobile, Search, Smartphone
