Zi Corporation releases Qix Technology
Zi Corporation has launched a new application interface that provides users with a quick and easy method for accessing and discovering a phone's full set of features, applications and services without having to remember where and how to find them via the phone's built-in menu structure. Qix (pronounced "quick") allows users to intuitively accesses information directly from the idle screen used for dialing on the standard keypad. The application is initially targeted at Symbian OS users.

Based on a proprietary indexing engine, Qix reduces the number of key presses needed to use a phone and eliminates the need to scroll through menu systems.

Qix utilizes all the information stored in the mobile phone to facilitate the choices available to the user. While in idle screen for dialing, upon the first press of the keypad, Qix begins interpreting the possible combinations of the letters and numbers entered and presents the user with a list of options; including, phonebook contacts, browser bookmarks, installed applications, operator customized services, help files and more. In most cases, after just 3-4 key presses, the desired option is presented.

It is like predictive text input, but instead of a text dictionary it is actually related to all programs, contacts and phone numbers stored on a phone's memory.

As an example, pressing the "9/WXYZ" key followed by the "3/DEF" key would bring up a list of contacts, individuals or companies, whose names or numbers begin with these combinations, such as a colleague's name from the phonebook, Wendy, and a company's number with the sequence of 93 within it from the call log file. Equally it would display available applications, services, bookmarks, help files or games available on the device containing the number sequence 93 or letter combinations of WXYZ with DEF. In this example, Qix would present the Web browser application, a URL bookmark such as Yell.com and the Web settings help file on the phone. The user then simply highlights and clicks on the relevant item and it is opened regardless of whether it is an application, bookmark, etc.
