Yahoo! has launched a new note-taking research tool called Search Pad. The tool is designed to automatically detect research intent among people using Yahoo! search.
Once the intent is detected, searchers are prompted with an invitation to use Search Pad. The tool uses drag and drop but includes the ability to write free form notes as well.
This is a great concept because alternatives require opening separate documents and applications or taking handwritten notes.
The tool is rolling out today to several countries. I personally couldn't get a Search Pad prompt yet today. Could you? Let us know by leaving a comment. Here are the countries Search Pad is rolling out to:
- United States
- New Zealand
- United Kingdom
