PFORZHEIM, Germany, February 17, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- The FACT-Finder search and navigation system, which is already the market leader for European online shops, is now available as an iPhone application as well. Online shops equipped with FACT-Finder error-tolerant search can use the new App even when the shop's system does not yet support the iPhone.

Mobile Commerce success in three short steps:

FACT-Finder provides a template that allows any shop to appear on the iPhone with the desired Look Feel in just three short steps:

1) Customise the design (logos, colours, and graphics may be selected as desired).

2) Connect the software to the shop's payment system.

3) Register the application in the App Store. That's it!

Finds without requiring tedious typing

The FACT-Finder iPhone App makes the dynamic Suggest feature available to every iPhone user. Suggest is especially helpful for Mobile Commerce, relieving users from typing long search phrases: as soon as the first few letters are typed, potential matches are displayed in a selectable list. Suggest is self-learning, meaning that the list of suggestions reflects queries actually entered into the shop. Shop operators can migrate FACT-Finder's concentrated power, out-of-the-box to the iPhone in very short time.

A video about the FACT-Finder iPhone App is available here:
