Web Search Accelerator for iPad and iPhone

Houdah Software has announced 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."

Feature Highlights:
* Full iPad support
* Quick and easy access to search engines
* Engine selection using shortcuts
* List of recent queries
* Pre-configured with a large selection of search engines and web sites

Pricing and Availability:
Search Rocket 1.5 is priced at $0.99 (USD) and available exclusively in the Productivity and Productivity categories of Apple's App Store.
