- This is my new favorite app. Showed it to my iphone fanboy brother yesterday.
He shrugged when I said "Hey Vlingo, call home." And it rang my home phone.
He nodded and said, "Yeah, yeah, big deal" when I said, "Hey Vlingo, text [brother's name], respond to this text without actually touching your iphone."
His jaw absolutely dropped open and he said, "Wait a minute, gimme that phone...." when I said, "Hey Vlingo, what is the answer to life, the universe and everything?" and it answered "42" and gave me additional information on the works of Douglas Adams.
This is an outstanding program.
If vlingo can just add "Listen to" for music, I'll ditch Google's voice search for good.10-16-2010 10:18 AM
Google Voice does "Listen to", enabling you to listen to music from Pandora, last.fm, Slacker, and I presume, others. I haven't seen where VLingo lets you do that.
For stuff they both do: Google, for me, seems to do Navigation better. But that might be because I have used it more so it has "learned" by pronunciation better for place names.
VLingo seems to do text, calling, and mail better for me. For some reason, Google seems not to know well how to distinguish the recipient from the message.
I'll keep both on my phone for a while but I would say that VLingo is becoming more compelling.10-16-2010 11:04 PM
