Springlets: Quick links for iPhone, Touch

Springlets for iPhone

Magnetism Studios, the company behind Insanely Great Tees clothing, has unveiled Springlets, a collection of home-screen functions for the iPhone and iPod touch. The collection of six icons allows users to jump directly to a number of online search databases, rather than having to load Safari and perform a Google search. Users can jump directly to Google's "I'm Feeling Lucky" search, IMDb, Chowhound, and Wikipedia. Springlets are downloadable through the iPhone and iPod touch only.

The other two buttons consist of a speed dialer, and a text-only search. The speed dialer allows users to enter a name and number into the Springlet, and it will automatically dial at the touch of the button. Text-only searching performs a Google search, but only streams the text information so that loading is faster over EDGE.
