Using Physical Signaling to Support Collaborative Mobile Search

Jaime Teevan, Meredith Ringel Morris, and Shiri Azenkot

Abstract

Often when people search the web from their phones, they do so collaboratively. We present a mobile application that supports in-person collaborative search by allowing users to physically signal a willingness to share. While the core application provides standard mobile search functionality, users rotate their devices to landscape orientation to indicate (to the device and others) they are entering a collaborative mode. We study two uses of collaborative mode, one where users rate results to create a group list, and another where screens and actions are shared across devices.
