    i found a way to change the message when it opens up for the first time after you say "hey Vlingo" to do so
    Open the vlingo app
    Goto settings
    Goto in-car settings
    Then scroll down to customize main prompt and make it say what even you want...
    have fun...

    yeah, as soon as i downloaded, i played with the settings...
    "hey vlingo"
    "what's the happy hap?"

    i'm still trying to think of something quite witty/funny to have it say each time.

    --in car beta mode--
    am i the only one kind of confused by it's inability to actually open apps via voice prompt?
    sure, it opens Facebook.
    but i tried "open app Barcode Scanner" in every combination i could think of, and i keep getting google search results.
    this happens for any other app name, as well.

    also, isn't it kind of weird it can't play an artist or music? (example: "hey vlingo...play artist Hopesfall" or anything else)... if there's a certain command, please share.

    Anyone figure out how to get the application to exit? I enjoyed trying it, but once it's installed I feel like it's taken over my phone.

    Also if you change your TTS options you can have a more proper speaking system. I use Loquendo TTS Susan

    i've had the same issue--esp with the "safe reader" never shutting off.

    had to menu>applications>running>and force close each of the Vlingo applications that were running.

    cool app. but yeah--battery life is def going to be an issue unless you're running with a charger.

    Go into your widgets and throw the newly included Vlingo Control widget on one of your home screens. It's got direct access to open the main Vlingo app, open the standard Vlingo mic, turn in-car on, turn safe reader on and off, and skip (something or other).

    yeah i added that, too

    kinda hoped the 'skip' or 'forward' button would have meant Music integration was already included in this app--but i guess it is still Beta.
    at least it's something to look forward to.

    ^not having that problem, but I am having an issue where it cannot differentiate between <contact> mobile,home, etc, so it defaults to home even if I say "<contact> mobile"

    Other than that, it's a fantastic app and I must say, better than Google's own for recognition. And personalizing the greeting? Sick...

    I have the phone rebooting issue, also.
    I have an open ticket with Vlingo, and it has been reported to their Engineering team, so hopefully we'll get a fix soon.

    Vlingo InCar reboots my EVO, too. I had to uninstall it. It would reboot my phone every time I disconnected a bluetooth headset or car kit even when I wasn't running the InCar module.

    I'll re-install after the next update.

    I'm installing a different ROM right now (or I'd check), but it was in the market two days ago.
