    Review: Vlingo 1.1 Limited Beta for Blackberry

    Advertisement



    Verdict: Vlingo is the premier Must-Have Software
    Pros: Accurate recognition of long messages, Automatic Voice dialing, Recognition of user's voice over background noise, Quick and easy setup, intelligent Voice Recognition System
    Cons: Initially, user has to enunciate emphatically,
    URL: www.vlingo.com (Non-Beta download)
    Price: Free
    Overall Rating: 5 out of 5

    To start with, the download was limited to 200 people and is no longer available. Don't panic though, Vlingo has confirmed that this beta will be widely available for download in the near future. For those who did not get a chance to download Vlingo 1.1, you can still download Vlingo 1.0. With this being said, Vlingo is an amazing voice recognition software.

    Highlights
    • Intelligent Voice Recognition System - Vlingo learns the voice of the user over time. This increases ease of use and improves accuracy of message translation
    • Compose Messages - Compose text messages, e-mails, even tasks and memos.
    • Reply & Forward Messages - Great addition to Vlingo. This feature makes the application feel more complete.
    • Voice Dialing - The most accurate to date
    • Perform Internet Searches - Google & Yahoo searches can be performed
    • Open Applications on your Device - Address Book, Calendar, Browser, and Messages can be opened using Vlingo
    I must admit that I was very skeptical about using this because of awful experiences with similar applications from different phones. But with Vlingo, that's not the case. The intelligence of this program is highly impressive. However, in the initial use, the application requires emphatic enunciation. On the plus side, if the software did not translate the message flawlessly, it would show a list of alternatives which would have the correct translation. If this sounds discouraging, do not write-off this product yet. After continued use, Vlingo will learn the voice of the user,improving the functionality and accuracy of the program. This increases the ease and joy of using Vlingo.

    Vlingo makes it easy to compose text messages, e-mails, tasks, memos and notes. Users even have the ability to open certain applictions such as, Browser, Calendar, Address Book and Messages from their devices. Some additional features of the new beta software are the ability to reply and forward messages. I found these features very useful. It is one thing to be able to compose a message by voice, but having the ability to reply and forward a message by voice is incredibly useful.

    In conclusion, Vlingo is a must-have application. When it becomes available, downloading it should be at the top of your to do list.

    This beta had a limited download of 200 people. Unfortunately, it is no longer available. Version 1.0 is still available as you mentioned. I recommend downloading that version since 1.1 is unavailable

    Thanks for the review.....I downloaded it and am giving this another try. Last time I tried this I got frustrated quickly with some voice recognition mix-ups, but I am encouraged to give it another shot. I'll give it more time to get used to me this time around..........and maybe slow down a bit while I talk
