Houdah Software today is pleased to announce the immediate availability
of Search Rocket 1.5 for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. Search Rocket
allows for quick searching of web sites and search engines. It not only
speeds up the process. It saves on your data plan: you no longer need to
load web pages just to get to the search form. Running a web search
couldn’t be any faster. Just type "g houdah" to search Google for the
word houdah. Type "y houdah" for the same search using Yahoo!
Search Rocket comes pre-configured with many popular search engines
(Google, Yahoo, Bing) as well as a large selection of web sites
(Wikipedia, IMDB, …). You may, of course, add your own favorites and
assign shortcuts of your choosing. For times where you don’t remember
shortcuts, you may select a search engine from a list which is filtered
as you type.
Search Rocket also remembers your recent searches. Running it again is a
matter of a single tap. This allows you to easily run the same search
across several sites. Type "imdb Serious Man" to search IMDB. Hit the
back button. Select "Rotten Tomatoes". Then select "Serious Man" from
the recent searches list. Now you are reading movie reviews.
"We were nothing short of amazed when we first ran Search Rocket on an
actual iPad," commented owner Pierre Bernard. "It was a nice-to-have
tool on the iPhone. On the iPad it became an eye-opener. Search Rocket
unlocks the power of the iPad as ultimate surfing device."
