    Vlingo: A most have speech to action app



    I am not the one to post about a random application I download for free from the market, but this one is certainly a special case. This application is one of the very few speech to action applications that you can get for free, and in my opinion it is the best.

    I have been using this application for over 24 hours now, and wow is it amazing. Normally only Google made software can understand my strong french-ish ascent, but this one does it well. It response very quickly and it has a lot of features that can be controlled by just talking to your phone, with my favorite being able to updating your facebook status by saying "Facebook Update... Driving to work with just a few hours of sleep."

    Now if that does not sell it to you, maybe the fact that it is free will do it. I just wanted to let you guys know of something you might want to try, and here is are a few more video demos.

    I have been using it for the past couple of weeks. It works pretty good. Now for those with deep voices there are times where it misses. I wish they will allow you to calibrate it like you can the google search.

    Thanks Wen, nice recommendation. For fun: go into car mode, and ask "What is the meaning of life?" I was impressed that Vlingo knew the answer.

    Nope, sorry...that's a different internet meme. But I did ask for "the square root of pi" and almost fell on the floor when I got the answer. The software team at Vlingo has a wonderful sense of humor. I'm gonna have lots of fun with it.

    Hey,

    I tried this when it first came out, but wow has it improved. I love that I can say "Hey vlingo" and it will answer me with a custom message, then I can speak commands. Stunning. Now if only i could customize its name...

    great app

    I just want an app that can respond to "Open Pandora" and "skip". If I try Open Pandora with this one it just brings up the browser and searches for open pandora. Bummer.

    You should ask "how are you?" or "what is my email address".

    What does yours answer with after you say Hey Vlingo?

    Current mine responds "Aye Cap'n"
