Sight: Web content indexing the hard, user-unfriendly way

Mark Gibbs | July 31, 2014
Startup Landscape Mobile's Sight app uses screenshots to bookmark content but isn't well-designed or convincingly more efficient than other methods.

The founders of Landscape have apparently good credentials and consequently IDG Capital Partners and individual investors gave them a seed fund investment of $1.85 million for a valuation of $10 million (wow) so perhaps the investors can see something I don't. The same goes for the various industry publications that have breathlessly reported on Sight with an obvious lack of hands-on.

According to Yue Zhuge, CEO of Landscape Mobile, as quoted by Marketwatch and Digital Journal straight from Landscape Media's Business Wire press release, "In Sight, we put images front and center as the new user-friendly URL for mobile - images can now be used smartly to discover related info ... Smart technologies such as ours separate the important DNA within images from the clutter, unlocking the power of the mobile web."

Sorry, but in Sight I just don't see it.
