Ever wanted to say "search for Bob Dylan on Pandora" and have it work? Yeah. Bang On does that.

- Search with your voice. Tap the dictation button on the keyboard* and say something like "search for apple" or "search YouTube for norah jones" or "search for Angry Birds on the App Store".

- Search hundreds of sites and apps with !bang shortcuts. For example, "!imdb richard pryor" will take you directly to a search at for Richard Pryor. "!instagram sunset" will open Instagram and start a search for sunset.

- Customize the favorites bar with your favorite !bang shortcuts to jump between your favorite search sites and apps quickly without retyping your search terms.

- Settings synced between devices via iCloud.

* iPhone 5, iPhone 4S or 3rd-generation iPad required for voice dictation.
