Vlingo – talk to your phone, ’cause the keypad ain’t listening


Vlingo is an interesting voice to text application which lets you replace the tap, tap, tappety of keyboard input with voice requests. Instead of typing an SMS message, you just say it. Instead of pecking out a search request, just talk to the application and ask for the nearest pizza shop. Another example of how mobile data is changing the whole cell phone dynamic. Now guys, next stop an international service, OK?

 Now you can talk to your phone and it understands you. Send a friend a text message without typing. Just speak, verify and send. Or find stuff. Say, for example, “pizza places in Pittsburgh.” Your phone figures out what you want, finds it and shows you how to get there. No tapping, no thumbs, just good old speaking. What’s more, you won’t have to repeat yourself if the phone misunderstands you.
