Voice Dialer can open most of the standard apps that come with your phone (including carrier-specific apps like SprintTV) and I've found it capable of opening some downloaded 3rd party apps. Though it's so inconsistent that it's easier to just open them manually.
I think Voice Dialer does its voice processing on the phone (hence its awful performance), whereas I think Google Voice Search does its voice processing on Google's servers. So Google Voice Search seems to be better at recognizing your words, though it doesn't seem to have the ability to open non-Google apps on your phone.
Following are some Google Voice Search commands that are worth knowing.
Call: e.g. Call John Doe at work.
Dial: e.g. Dial John Doe at home. (Same as “call”.)
