Take a jump back into your childhood and remember the popular book, Where’s Waldo? The thrill of looking for the beloved red and white stripped man that wore the big, black glasses and was always carrying books on his adventure. The feeling of triumph when you were finally able to locate him, in what should have been the most obvious place after minutes, even hours of looking. There’s a term for all the work you just completed, and that is visual searching. Where’s Waldo? isn’t the only example of a time when you demonstrate visual searching. When you’re a store, looking for items on your list, that is also considered visual searching.
How many of you like something you see just walking down the street, say, a certain jacket that a stranger is wearing? You see this amazing jacket, and you just have to have it, but you don’t know the person wearing it. You’re a little apprehensive to just walk up to the person and boldly request where they bought it from. Let’s face it, not everyone has the personality traits to walk up to a complete stranger and request where they got their article of clothing from. Now, what if I told you there are applications you can download to your smart phone that would aid you in this? Would be pretty great right? Well, you can.
