12 Days of iPhone Apps ? Day 10: Dragon Search

On the 10th Day of iPhone Apps
MyTechOpinion blogged to you?
Dragon Search powers voice,
Displays results on the fly!

About the Dragon Search app:
Historically if you wanted to search a keyword or phrase on your iPhone you?ve typed directly into a search engine. Ok, maybe you?ve tried the Google voice app, but for me I was left wanting more. Not any longer, Dragon Search is the new one-stop search application controlled by your voice. At its heart you’ll gain the ability to speak any given search into like Google, Yahoo, Bing, YouTube, Twitter, iTunes, and Wikipedia. Once the results have populated your screen, use the intuitive search carousel to switch between the other sources on the fly. Dragon also archives recent searches, allowing you to quickly recall past activity.

Ubertor Launches New Video Solution

Last week I was talking with Steve Jagger of Ubertor, and he shared that some of his clients who?ve posted videos to popular online video sharing sites have had them removed for being real estate / commercial content. ?This inconvenience drove Ubertor to create a powerful in-house video hosting solution which went live last week.

Now using the Ubertor website system, clients of the $57 and $77 website plans can upload videos to their website and display them using the Combustion Video player. The same videos can also be easily syndicated to YouTube and Viddler.

TinyChat: Don’t let the name fool you, it’s all muscle

If you’ve been unimpressed with the available chat applications for your blog, you’ll be excited to learn about TinyChat.

TinyChat recently delivered version 2 of their chat product and I’m really impressed.? The application is extremely intuitive, which starts with a large text field prompting for a chat room name. Within seconds your new room is created.? But not before you’re given the chance to sign in using Twitter and invite other participants.? If you’re not using Twitter don’t fret; just enter your name to continue.

At this point the chat room has been created, now set a chat topic and select your privacy option.? By private it really means not listed on the TinyChat website. ?If you need password protection, you’ll have to upgrade to the professional plan.? With that plan, you’ll also own up to 5 rooms, and broadcast in HQ video.
