In informal data sharing environments, misspellings cause problems for data indexing and retrieval. This is even more pronounced in mobile environments, in which devices with limited input devices are used. In a mobile environment, similarity search algorithms for finding misspelled data need to account for limited CPU and bandwidth. This demo shows P2P fast similarity search (P2PFastSS) running on mobile phones and laptops that is tailored to uncertain data entry and uses available resources efficiently. In this demo, users publish and search for textual content containing misspellings without relying on query logging, as done by Google, and with a minimum distributed indexing infrastructure. Similarity search is supported by using the concept of deletion neighborhood to evaluate the edit distance metric of string similarity.
