Vlingo makes the world a lot easier by turning what you say into a command for the phone. Vlingo allows you to dial contacts, dial and search businesses, send text messages, send emails, search the web, open Android apps, perform local searches, and tweet by voice on Twitter. The accuracy of the speech recognition it good too, goes farther the Google’s own integration of voice control for Android.
The app can read incoming text messages and emails via SafeReader component. The voice reads about very clearly and even speaks with punctuation if conveyed in the message, at times some words or phrases get butchered so it’s not perfect, but then, again no app is perfect. By default Vlingo can read SMS text messages but not those via Google Voice and email has to be setup.
Vlingo in car beta feature allows you to completely hands-free call, send, reply to and receive text messages and email, plus search the web, open Android apps and a lot more. Imagine never using you’re hands but still typing back an important message to a friend or co-worker.
The app all around is one of the best and most useful apps I’ve ever seen it makes everyday life easier and a lot can be done quicker. In fact, I just sent a text message with this app and it made no mistakes, even got the punctuation correct.
