    Does anybody have any feedback about this app before I decide to download it? Sounds like a really sweet program, but as usual there's always some kinks and bugs in there somewhere. Lol. Looking for some good and bad 411 on it. Thanks guys!!

    It seems to work pretty well. Picks things up better than the voice dialing. I'm not sure I'll keep it, but pretty cool so far. Just my $.02.

    well I guess it depends on who your service provider I cant get past step 4 of the config. I have an 8100 with T-Mobile and it seems the only people with T-Mobile that have been able to get it is the wifi phones

    So far so good. Install went pretty easy and I have used it to send several text messages so far. Have not tried to dictate an email yet. It even works better than the default voice dial.

    I had the same problem until I entered the APN settings for my carrier (O2 UK) and then it moved on.

    I did the "message X I am trying some new software" and most of the words were wrong. It worked well with things like "OPEN ADDRESS BOOK"

    Try it!

    Thanks

    No reason to not download it and try it yourself if you ask me.

    I agree.......I was a part of the first go around for beta!! and I just tested it and gave feedback, but it was pretty slow!! It is definitely a kool app, but like you, I can access my email/sms and compose 3x faster than Vlingo does it...so it's fairly useless for me too!! I downloaded it out of curiosity to see how it came along upon release, but I had too many issues with installing it and getting it to work so I deleted it too!! over-hyped IMO

    For me, downloading & installation went without a hitch. Maybe I was just lucky, but oh well.

    As far as the app itself, I like it. I don't particularly use the dictation for sms or emails, since I can type faster, but do use it for short messages so that it'll learn. I do use the websearch & have since taken both yahoo onesearch & tellme off of my bb.

    I would definitely recommend you try it out & see if it's for you. As for me, I'll be keeping it for a while.

    Seems the reviews on This app are very mixed.
    I did not have any issue downloading the app and setting it up. I have tried to use it multiple times and really am not terribly keen on it.
    The issues that I experience is maybe I don't speak super clear or loud enough and it tends to break apart words. And then I have to edit and usually re edit the message.
    The idea of it learning your voice and becoming better faster and easier to use in time is appealing but I don't think that I have the patience.
    The idea of it is awesome but in the end I feel that using your thumbs to compose your messages is just part of the BB culture. And likely that's how I am going to roll OLD SCHOOL.
    Again keep in mind it is a free app and can be removed if its not your cup a tea.
