    Is there an app that allows you to create text messages using your voice? I know that sounds kind of dumb, but often times I'd like to safely reply to text messages while driving--times when a phone call is impossible because the other person can't currently speak.

    The reason why there is no app like that, is because voice recognition is not 100% accurate yet.

    Thank you for the suggestions. Do either of those apps integrate with the default messaging app?

    Handcent SMS is a replacement for the default messaging app and is very good. I use it myself, forgot it had the voice feature. LOL
    Highly recommend Handcent SMS.

    Have not used Voice Text, but based on the description and comments in the Market, it does not appear to integrate with the default messaging app.

    Handcent voice text is pretty good. Also Handcent will allow you to send/receive MMS... and you can save MMS as well. It's a huge improvement over the stock messaging... go with Handcent... you'll be happy :)

    Handcent rocks! It does voice plus it far superior to the native texting app. I highly recommended it and best of all, it's free.

    I used the voice option today in handcent to see what my lab was saying when I would get him all rawled up. Apparently he's hungry and horny, because it kept recognizing his growls as nude and food. LOL

    You should try it on your dogs it's pretty entertaining.

    I just installed Handcent today - it is very kewl! You can also use it to send and receive files like ringtones and pictures. I think the limit for sending files is 275k but at least it work!!

    You can set unique notification sounds for each person in your contact list and set the LED to blink one of six different colors depending on contact.

    While not a app for creating a text to send, SMS Popup, a free market app, has the option to hit a mic to record a quick reply (have to enable quick replies in app setup).

    I believe it uses the default voice reg system in the Droid. It works ok half the time.
