My wife is contemplating an Android phone, and loved the demo she saw of VLingo on a Blackberry. I keep noting that this is all built in and free on Android. I imagine since they are cross coding anyway, might as well offer it for Android at least (It IS offered for Android, as well as iPhone and Blackberry).

So a couple of things: What are the differences between VLingo and the built in functionality? Are there other alternatives?

I like the Google technology currently used, and am playing with VLingo on my Blackberry, and am not so impressed yet. I am waiting to be wowed.

    I don't see how there can be a single, correct answer to this. You're asking for opinions, which is not the kind of questions we prefer on this site. – ale Jan 13 '11 at 16:17
  • Agreed, this is subjective and should be closed. And if VLingo hasn't actually been released for Android, this isn't really even an Android question. – Matthew Read Jan 13 '11 at 16:34
  • I am asking for pro-cons. Which is not exactly opinion. And it was released for Android. – geoffc Jan 13 '11 at 16:37
  • @Al Everett am asking for pro-cons. Which is not exactly opinion. And it was released for Android. @Matthew Read : I edited to say that it has been released for Android. – geoffc Jan 13 '11 at 16:50
  • @geoffc Pros and cons are absolutely subjective opinions, that doesn't make sense. – Matthew Read Jan 13 '11 at 17:00

I tried VLingo for a while on my Evo and wasn't impressed. It did not seem to offer any value to me above that provided by the built-in voice actions. I uninstalled it after trying it for a couple of months.

  • I can see why an iPhone, or BB would want such an app, I am trying to figure out how it improves upon Google included code! Thanks for the response. I think if I had to choose voice recognition code, I would choose Googles over most anyone, just knowing how they scale things... – geoffc Jan 14 '11 at 17:56
  • @user921: Can you be more specific? – ale Jan 14 '11 at 20:15
