Voice Dialing and So Much More

Those of you who were using a smart phone before the iPhone may know that a certain previously popular smart phone (cough, cough, Treo, cough) has great voice control features that were created by a company called Voicesignal.

We can tell you from first hand experience that their voice software is simply fantastic. No training is necessary and you can do almost anything you can do with your hands by just talking. For example, using only your voice, you can call contacts at specific numbers (i.e. car, home, mobile, office), initiate an email to a specific contact at a specific email address, launch any application, etc.

Needless to say, this type of control is something the iPhone is sorely lacking. (Allow us to reiterate again, Voicesignal products work without any training, the first time you launch the software, you can say the name of any contact and 99% of the time it will find the contact. It's that good)

Well, the folks at Voicesignal were shrewd enough to also notice that the iPhone doesn't have any voice control and they have already written some iPhone software which will solve this problem. The Video below contains 2 demonstrations of the super-powers this software will have. The video will play on all computers, even iPhone's surfing with EDGE.

Just in case you're too lazy to watch, we'll sum up the video. In the first demo, the user says the name of a band and the Phone starts playing their music. In the second demo, the user says a state and city and asks for hotels, at which point the iPhone launches Google maps and returns the appropriate search results.

Unfortunately, this software is not yet available, but you can bet your bippy it will be when the iPhone Applications store opens this June.
