Vlingo: Words to Action is simply Amazing!!! Vlingo for Android allows yo 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. By default Vlingo can read SMS text messages but not those via Google Voice and email has to be setup.
Update: Vlingo InCar was recently feature added which allows you to completely hands-free call, send, reply to and receive text messages and email, plus search the web, open Android apps and more… without ever touching the phone! The InCar feature was initially only available to Sprint customers but soon became available to all phones with Android 2.2+. Note – Vlingo: Words to Actions base app requires Android 2.1+ and the added component Vlingo InCar requires Android 2.2. Check out the live demo below.

Usefulness & Ease of Use:
I remember a buddy telling about how cool the Blackberry version was and the same greatest has been improved upon for Android. It truly makes operating any Android phone, especially slate form factor phones without physical keyboards and more convenient and easy to use. Even more convenient that the home search widgets the app provides, the functionality can be invoked by longpressing the “Search” button.
Once you learn the commands to voice control your phone, it really is a habit changer and how you use your phone.
There’s a slick user friendly interface that offers a guides on how to use every feature… open the app and tap on “What Can I Say”? The app also comes with home screen widgets (4×1, 2×1
, and 1×1) for quick and easy access.
