Nuance Dragon Go, is an ihPhone, iPad and iPod Touch app that works hand-in-hand with the company's phenomenal voice recognition technology. The concept is quite similar to Siri, which Apple owns, and all voice-searches connect to services like OpenTable and Fandango.

When it comes to voice-powered search, of course, Bing and Google have voice search as a built-in option and there're plenty of other apps specializing in all manner of specific queries.

What makes Dragon Go a bit different is the fact that the new iPhone app often knows what to do with a specific query. Say "Play R.E.M." and it opens Pandora. Say "buy tickets for Bridesmaids" and it'll open Fandango. But say "Reviews for Bridesmaids" and it'll open IMDB instead. Meanwhile, asking for a review of a restaurant should bring up Yelp while a query for reservations for that same restaurant polls OpenTable.

Nuance has built an open architecture aimed at including all manner of vertical queries. At launch it supports more than 180 options from the aforementioned sites to services such as Yelp, Wikipedia and Google. And Nuance expects that number will continue to grow.

Dragon Go's dynamic Dragon CarouselTM not only delivers you to the best site featuring what you want, it also delivers complementary results that enable you to slide the carousel from side-to-side to compare information across the most relevant sites for your Dragon Go! request.

For example: You say…."Cowboys & Aliens showtimes" - Dragon Go! delivers you directly to Fandango featuring movie trailers, showtimes and ticket purchasing for your local theaters. The Dragon CarouselTM also enables you to see what people are saying about the movie on Twitter and flick over to Wikipedia to learn more about the graphic novel the movie is based on.

You can also share your Dragon Go! results via an easy-to-use pop-up toolbar featuring link share options across email, text messages, Facebook and Twitter.

And that's not all! In a place where it's not convenient to speak? Just type your Dragon Go! requests for the same fast, accurate results!
