SearchKit groups all of the search functionality in NBI into a single API. All of the premium data search methods that were available in MapKit in previous versions of NBI such as: gas prices, movie show times, weather, etc… can now be found in SearchKit. SearchKit also introduces a new feature called single search. Single search combines POI and address search into a unified functionality. Single search enables users to enter search strings for specific POIs, POI categories (such as restaurants), addresses, or airports without having to specify the type of search they wish to perform. The single search feature is intelligent enough to discern the user’s intent and return the correct information. SearchKit also provides an API that makes it easy for you to present suggestions to your users as they enter information into a search box. These suggestions are relevant to the text the user has entered as well as their current location. SearchKit is only available on the iOS and Android platforms. NBI search functionality is unchanged on the RIM and Brew platforms. See the SearchKit API Reference for more information.
