I can’t believe I didn’t find this earlier! Vlingo is a FREE voice recognition app that blows away any voice to text app I have ever seen. And it’s available for my beloved Android as well as Blackberry, iPhone, Windows Mobile and Nokia phones. Seriously.
You can say a command and whatever you want to convert to text in one fell swoop. You can text, email, update social network statuses, call someone, search the web and so much more starting with one tap of a button.
But if you’re thinking, “Big deal, you still have to handle your phone to do anything. What if you’re driving?” This will blow your mind!
Before you start driving open Vlingo and turn on the “In Car” feature (currently in Beta and better if used with a Bluetooth headset). Whenever you need to do anything on your phone simply say “Hey Vlingo” to wake up the app. Then use the commands to do what you need INCLUDING saying “Send” to send texts and emails. When you receive a message in return, it READS IT TO YOU! (Make sure SafeReader is on!)
I’m still playing around with this app but I am seriously in love. Did I mention it’s FREE?
Note: Android users, this app is limited to 2.1 and above, or 2.2 and above for the InCar feature.0
