Do you want to turns your words into action? also want to Send messages, update status, search, find/call local businesses, book hotels, movies, restaurants and much more without using your finger? Vlingo the virtual assistant app can do it for you.
Speech recognition has come a long way in the past 10 years, going from intermittent, wrong-more-often-than-not white elephant, to something that’s getting somewhere near the point that it might put the mighty QWERTY keyboard out of business. Vlingo converts your speech to text to compose emails and texts and uses voice commands to perform specific Android tasks. It can even make using your ‘droid in-car safer.
ts simple user interface and slick navigation makes the app very easy to use and on the eyes. Here are some screenshots of what I used the app for recently.
