Abstract

This review looks at a book that aims to provide further understanding of search behaviour on mobile devices, as people act through not only web browsers, but also specialist mobile apps, transition between those apps and also transition across devices. According to the authors the book addresses a number of perceived gaps in the mobile search behaviour literature. These include understanding mobile search behaviours from the perspective of user sessions, with tendencies for the current literature to focus on analysing patterns as a whole in large aggregated search logs of single search engines, rather than by individual sessions and multiple apps. The book also premises the increased importance of specialist search apps over and above traditional web browsers.
