Yup, paying the developers for their work suuuuuuuuuuuuuure sounds like stealing.

Oh, yeah, they barely paid the "guy" (which was actually a company with multiple employees). Estimates are between 100 and 200 million dollars. So quit trolling.

Waiiiiiitt, Vlingo's better than Google Voice? Cause so far, Google Voice amazed me in many ways i cant imagine, although words are preset, its still awesome at recognizing. Does Vlingo use an active internet connection btw?

Edit: Read the reviews, apparently it does as well.

I'm excited to switch to the 4GS when it comes. But I'm sure I'll miss several of the awesome things Android does that IOS doesnt.

Don't join the hipster dude! Why are you wanting to switch?

Apple does the same thing as Microsoft.

Just harping my opinion on these apps:

Somehow (and I realize I'm talking like an iDRONE) if apple makes it, it just works. Reminders just work, iMessage just works and works so well and so smoothly and so on and so forth with the other new additions.

I wonder how Vlingo has changed. I had it a long time ago on my iphone 3G, it sucked, utterly hated it.

iMessenger is really useful, I like it a lot more than Textfree was. Though I find it hard to compensate Gtalk for an actual app messenger ( so few of my friends realize how to use it even though they have an android phone), though I may try this whatsapp messenger for my HC tablet.

That all being said, these are useful alternatives and when I do change over to the Note this year from my iphone, I want that same stability and awesomeness android users seem to promise me with their phones. Because I certainly didn't see it in the HC tablets. Did everything you guys recommend for a smooth experience, flashed roms (taboonay 2.1), oc kernel and the lot. WHY DOES EVERYTHING CRASH ON A DAY TO DAY BASIS? And HOW FOR THE LOVE OF GOD does this thing lag even switching screens at 1.5ghz on a tegra 2. AND to top it all off, most webpages load faster on my iphone 4 faster than my iconia even with plugins on demand. I almost want to make a custom image of ubuntu and flash it on there and see if the experience is better, because this is worthless trash to me right now.

With that all in consideration, I'm still getting the SG NOTE, which promises a nice mali gpu and exyonys 1.4ghz dual core on gingerbread, and I'm a 4.5 year iphone user having used every version of the iphone since the release of the 2G. Lets say I have high expectations for gingerbread (don't seem to care about LCS, looks like a tiny version of what I'm used to in 3.0 - 3.2)

Thank you for my small rant.

Siri, like the apps mentioned in article was available in the App store for a long time and no one gave a damn about it until Apple decided that it had $$$ making potential in it.
Volume button as camera button. Look up the story on that. Guy created a decent app to use the volume button as a camera button that worked pretty slickly, and Apple banned it from the app store, to then implement it into the fi-... 4S. (I know, that number still burns the loyal iPhone fans)

Voice commands are a huge gimmick. Those who truly believe Siri is an amazing breakthrough are so naive it's not even funny. By the way to those interested, SpeakToIt is an equal alternative for Android, and it's coming to iOS because the users are in demand of it.

Actually, I got some hands-on time with the iPhone 4S at a local ATT carrier, and I have to say that I am a HUGE fan of Siri. It is able to do a lot for a simple "assistant" program.

Vlingo is still very good, but unless I spoke clearly and precisely, it didn't register some of my words. Siri did much better at understanding my questions, and understanding what I was asking. I asked both programs "What is 4 times 2?"

Siri's reply: 8

Vlingo's reply: I don't understand (text: What is 4 times to)


They both do GPS just fine, they both do weather just fine, they both do google search just fine, and they both do simple phone functions (text, phone calls, etc.) just fine. What Siri does better is voice recognition of natural language, and it answers simple questions a lot better.

Vlingo is good, but Siri is better.

Agreed Siri isn't nothing new.
