App of the Week: Vlingo
The daily commute can put a damper on your attitude. Lets face it, sometimes traffic is the worst thing in your existence. To make life easier, there’s an app for that. No it doesn’t fly you over traffic in a hovercraft vehicle equipped with back massager, but it does act as your personal assistant. According to Vlingo: “Tell your phone what to do! The Vlingo Virtual Assistant turns your words into action. Vlingo combines voice to text technology with its "intent engine" to help you quickly complete your desired action. Simply speak to your phone or type a command through the ActionBar to get just about anything done while on the go.
Looking for directions to a restaurant? Need to do a quick mobile search for information on bee allergies? Can’t find the number for a plumber? Want to update your social status to tell everyone about your new puppy? Maybe you need to send a quick text to a colleague because you’re running late for a meeting? Or perhaps you’re looking for a safer alternative to texting while driving? Vlingo can do all of these things for you, and so much more!
Vlingo has accurate voice recognition technology, speed and intelligence to help you stay connected with the people, businesses and activities that are important to you. “
The best part? The app is free. It’s a safe alternative for getting info while on the road while keeping your family and yourself safe. Check it out right here: http://www.vlingo.com/. Vlingo is available on iOS, Android Blackberry, Nokia, and Windows smartphone platforms.
