Text messages are being recognized more and more for their effectiveness and ease. Their immediacy and ease as communication tools are overriding previous concerns of tact and courtesy. Messages that would have required a phone call or personal email in the past can now be shot off in under a minute… if only you could navigate those tiny buttons more easily.
Now you can send a friend or coworker a text message without typing. If you have a blackberry, there is an application that allows you to talk to your phone,and it understands you. Just speak, verify, and send.
The same application allows you to find those things you need or want: a handy feature, to be sure. For example, if I have a hankering for a hamburger, I can say “hamburger places in San Francisco.” My phone figures out what I want, finds it, and shows me how to get there. No typing, no tapping: just ask.
It’s all possible with vlingo, innovative software that translates your voice into text with unprecedented accuracy.
