    The Droid's standard VoiceDial doesn't work well for me. When I speak a name, it gives me a list of about 20 options.

    I see there are a couple of VoiceDial app's available. Can anyone recommend a good one?

    I have both "Choice Dialer" and "Voice Dialer HF." Each is superior, imo, to the generic voice dialer but they emphasize different features. VDHF focuses on "hands free" dialing and within the limits of voice recognition technology works rather well. Choice Dialer is quicker, at least in my experience, and provides more extensive control of applications including the capability to play songs in your local music library. On the other hand, if it's unsure what you want, it presents a picklist rather than individual audio choices and that requires using a finger.

    Don't recall offhand whether the two apps are free and what differences there may be between the free and paid versions. I have paid versions of both simply because I believe in supporting developers when I can.

    As a follow-up to my above comment on the VoiceDialer HF app; it does work well in a quiet environment. I should have road tested it before posting that comment.

    I wanted the app to voice dial calls while driving. I have found that the slightest bit of roadway noise renders it completely worthless, at least in my experience so far.
