This process involved several steps, context switches and takes time.

    Our invention suggest analyzing the text, learn that it contains information on an application so we will offer the user to download this application (of find more information on it) in just one click.

Didn't find any similar solution or patent.

    The idea is to analyze the text the that user receive in mail, SMS, etc. The full list of available resource for analyzing will be available on the OS settings. The user can set the list of resources to analyze and edit it at any time.

When the user uses one of the resources that were selected for analyaze the mobile OS will look for identified names based on the below algorithm (section #3). If it find such it will offer the user a direct link to download this application from the application store. Specific details on how the direct link will work and look like are describe below (section #3)

    The advantages of using this invention are:
1 - The user does not have to manually close the current application (mail, SMS,etc) and open the application store.
