Vlingo has released their Android app, recently, and the things you’ll be able to do with it are pretty cool. You’ll be able to use human-language to update your Twitter status, send a text message, an email, and more. It even has the option of playing back your text messages and emails word-for-word for those that can’t be bothered with having to operate the phone.




There’s a cool widget that comes with this app and as an added bonus, SafeReader is included. SafeReader has the ability to read your SMS and emails out loud to free up your hands while you’re driving or busy with another activity. Incoming calls will also be routed through the phones speaker while this app is active.

This app is only available for 2.0 and up devices. If you can’t find it in the market, click here to download.

This is actually sort of useless. Although their text-to-speech is not even half as annoying as what you find elsewhere.
Would be much more worth the $10 if just you didn't have to tap before speaking and after speaking.
In fact you can do almost the same with Google's speech to text keyboard. But this would for sure be better :lol:
I'm just so sad this doesn't really exist in other languages than english :S

Most people are probably aware of this already but, just in case, Vlingo is actually now free on the Android Market. This is obviously in response to Google's Voice Actions for Android 2.2.
