Turn Your Words Into Actions With Vlingo
Developers claim that it is a virtual assistant and for critics it is one of the best voice-transcription apps – let me review the Vlingo for Android today.
Texting, making a call, finding restaurants, hotels and other businesses, Googling, updating social media and many other things can be done with voice and Vlingo. This app combines accurate voice to text technology with the intelligence to listen to what the users say and quickly connect them with people, businesses and activities. Apart from listening, it can also read the text messages.
For frequent driver InCar feature of Vlingo could help. With both hands of wheels, the drivers can command the app to send and receive messages, make calls and get directions. However, it will work only in Android Freyo or higher and it needs a Bluetooth or wired headset. This feature has few glitches, especially the Bluetooth issue could make users reboot their phone.
rel=“nofollow”>Vlingo is available for free now (it costed $9.99 a year back and they promised to increase its price in the future). However one could find many features missing, while comparing this app with Google Voice Actions. Especially, it makes users to hit “Done” once they finished speaking, while Google Voice Action can recognize it once the user stopped speaking. Vlingo should also work on those Bluetooth issues.
Vlingo smartly uses search engines and social networks for its benefit. It has attractive user interface and the controls are easy to understand and are intuitive. If you don’t have any voice-transcription app in your phone, try Vlingo. It is also very popular in iOS, Windows, BlackBerry and Symbian platforms.
