    For any of you with Android who think they don't need this because Android already has some great voice to text and voice command capabilities, take a closer look. This does so much more! A couple of us on the PinStack team have been testing this out and a more detailed review will be posted later. The Safe Reader is awesome as well as some of the other features. Here is a chart that shows some of what Vlingo does compared to the native Android functions

    I bought this on my BlackBerry over a year ago and use it probably more then any other app on my device. It's great at recognizing my southern drawl without the need to be very succinct. And as Sam said, the Safe Reader feature is really awesome. I turn it on when I'm driving so I can focus on the road, rather then reading the screen. The ability to send SMS and email or even update Twitter by pressing one button and speaking is worth the price of the app.

    Looking forward to seeing your review Sam.

    After this app went from being free to $20 on BlackBerry a year or so ago (only free if the recipient also has Vlingo), I said forget it. I decided I didn't need voice-to-text that badly. I'm guessing this will be a paid app on the Android Market as well.

    It is, it's on sale for $9.99 during launch, great for when driving because of the SafeReader. The shake to skip feature is great, especially when you get an advertising email and it reads you every character in each hyperlink

    The technology costs them money to develop and they have to pay for the servers that convert and transmit the data as well. As much as I wish all great apps were free, this was not developed as a hobby, it's their living. Would you rather have it be ad supported? I just envisioned hearing an Enzyte commercial before the app reads me my message lmbo!

    AZ, does Vlingo work through a headset? Is the 9.99 just for Android users?
