Search for news, weather, translations, reviews, movies, wikipedia entries and more.

This app performs simple searches against several web apis like Yahoo YQL and Google API. It's a GTK-frontend for "buddy as a service", a jabber/wave robot I wrote some time ago. Look here for more info: http://mborho.github.com/baas/

The app is available in Extras

http://maemo.org/downloads/product/Maemo5/ask-ziggy/

It' released under GNU General Public License V3
and its source code can be found at http://github.com/mborho/ask-ziggy

Currently implemented features:
- yahoo web/news search via YQL
- google news/web search
- delicious bookmark search via YQL
- translations via gtranslate api
- weather forecasts via google weather api
- wikipedia, imdb and metacritic searches implemented via google ajax api
- recallable history for every service

Planned features:
- openening connection dialog when no network connection was found
- porting perhaps to pyqt
- more service (twitter search, etc ?)

Screenshots:
