Vlingo for Android gives users full voice control over their Android phone [GIVEAWAY]

One day we will be able to simply think about what we want our Android phones to do, and our phones will do it. Vlingo for Android brings us a little closer to that goal by providing full voice controls for the Android system for 2.0+ users. Though the newer Android versions offer stock voice search and text input, Vlingo takes it one step further by allowing users to launch applications, update their twitter status, and call, email, or text anyone in your contact list. In addition, Vlingo Safe Reader will read incoming text messages and emails to you so that you don’t have to fumble around with your phone while on the go.

Where Vlingo really shines is in the homescreen widget. Users can put the widget on their homescreen, touch the tap and speak button, and command your android phone to do as you please. The commands themselves are basic and intuitive, and include all of the following commands (the action/command items are in italics).

  • Text Message: Text Katie Message Are you free tonight for dinner?
  • Email: Email Han Subject Tonight Message Running a bit late.
  • Voice Dial: Call Charlie mobile
  • Search: Search Bonobo Apes
  • Open Apps: Open Alarm clock
  • Maps: Find coffee shops in Cambridge
  • Twitter: Twitter really need a coffee right now

Overall, Vlingo handles these commands fairly well with a few exceptions. My wife has a unique name. At first, when I tried to use the command “email Jenica subject test message hello,” it just would not find my wife’s contact information. Vlingo promises to get better as time goes on, so I tried this again today and it successfully found her this time around.

Launching applications was the only other real hit or miss for me. Sure it launched all of the stock apps without a hitch, but when I tried to launch a soundboard to taunt my co-worker, it crapped out and did a google search for the soundboard. The main improvement I’d like to see in Vlingo is this tighter integration with 3rd party apps. The ability to use your voice to launch applications is where Vlingo really sets itself apart and I think it will be a must have application once this feature is improved.

Vlingo currently is available on the Android market for devices running Android 2.0 or higher, but it’s a fairly expensive app that will set you back $9.99, and even that seems to be a discount. The press release (dated May 25, 2010) states that the $9.99 price is for a limited time only, so expect this number to increase in coming weeks.

Once the integration with 3rd party applications is a little better, I do think that Vlingo could justify the high price, but I also fear that this will become part of the stock Android system in future releases and it will become a “wasted purchase.” I’d like to see a dumbed down free version of the application, or at least a 14 day free trial so users can try before they buy. Vlingo themselves offer a free lite version of their application for Blackberry, but no word on whether this will also come to Android.

Pros

  • Full voice control over your Android device. Vast improvement over the stock voice text/search app in 2.0+ Android versions.
  • Voice controls are simple/easy to understand, and are intuitive.
  • Convenient widget

Cons

  • Ability to launch 3rd party applications could use some improvements.
  • Comes with a hefty $10 pricetag with the promise of an increased price if you aren’t an early Vlingo adopter.

Final Verdict: Before buying Vlingo, I strongly encourage you to weigh the pros and cons of making the $10 plunge. This app has the potential to be worth the $10 price, but I can easily see these features being incorporated into future Android releases.

  • http://Website Lucas

    Awesome! Been wanting to try this out.

  • http://Website patrick neville

    I could really use this app on my Sprint hero.
    I’ve found a couple of app that do the same thing as stock apps, but I like better. Handcent SMS being a good example.

  • http://Website Haggie

    It would be great if it was integrated into the app and gave you a audio reply.

    Text messaging: “Text Katie” [opening] pause [ready for your message] “Are you free tonight for dinner?” [confirming message "are you free tonight for dinner?] “Confirmed” [sent]

    Now THAT would be a $10 app.

    Yeah, $10 seems a bit much. Maybe not for iPhone, but Android, that’s a bit crazy. Still waiting on Google to buy out Dial2Do and make their system better. It should come out with the next android release. (crossing fingers)

    I could definitely use this. I can’t believe the latest swype still didn’t include the voice input button :(

  • http://Website DafL

    It’s a shame there is no basic trial version of this software. I would like to try it out to see how well it recognises my English accent, I have tried Google voice search and it wasn’t very successful, rarely finding anything that I asked of it. Even if it just popped on the screen what it intended to do but not actually do it in the trial version.

    I know I can get a refund after 24 hours but as the app is being improved all the time, and you can only get the refund once, it is hard to know when to jump in and try it.

    I used Vlingo with my BlackBerry Curve a couple of years ago pre-$10 charge and it worked great; I would love to try it with Android, I expect it works even better than it did back then. My favorite feature, hands down, was the ability to launch a phone call or send a text hands free while driving…Oprah says make your car a NO PHONE ZONE and this helps!

    I’m in!

    Saw this app in action on a new Incredible. Seemed like it recognized everything perfectly. I disagree with several posters that $10 may be a bit much. Assuming that it will not become part of Android, the app is certainly seemed like it is worth the money. With that said, paying more than a few bucks for an Android app is not the norm. Hopefully, the Vlingo gods shine their grace upon me and hook me up with a free app.

    What I’m looking for is a voice recognition application which can learn individual pronunciation as it is used. I’m sure there are legions of people like me – non-native English speakers. Currently, we are mostly deprived from using voice-recognition Android functionality.
    I understand, though, that such self-teaching apps is a daunting mathematical task, which also requires real-time interaction with powerful [Google] servers, so that only Google itself could do it…

    I am interested. I wonder if it will also control music. The one thing about Microsoft’s Voice Command that I will sorely miss when I get my new Android in a couple weeks is the capability to click the side button on the phone; or click the button on my Blue Tooth deivce on the sunvisor, and say “Play Jazz”, or “Play Sara McLaughlin”.

    I hope to win to test this out ! Android OS should have voice controls baked in to it… Although, i would say, better to develop it properly so that it actually works in real life… else its just another “show off” feature that doesn’t really do much

    I liked Vlingo on my Blackberry

  • http://Website Katharine

    I’d really love to try Vlingo. I am new to smartphones: the HTC Evo is my first ever, and I don’t think I’ve ever loved a gadget more than I love this wonderful device. This is also the first time I’ve ever entered a giveaway on Android and Me (hi!). Who knows? With luck, maybe it will be the first time I win something. :)

    Thank you for all you do in keeping us updated on Android-related innovations!

    My greatest complaint about the Droid is its poor Voice Dial recognition. The Voice Search is fantastic, but the Voice Dial is among the worst I have ever tested. Along comes Vlingo which works great for Voice Dial. I have been using the beta for Android and have been very pleased with its performance. My only complaint- the lack of bluetooth, hands-free voice dial. If Vlingo had the ability to bridge this gap on the Droid, it would be a five star app.
