iOS: The latest iPad received a global voice recognition feature for us in any app. The iPhone 4S, of course, has Siri. While there is no shortage of apps that translate your voice into the written word, most are limited by a few functions. Voice Assistant, on the other hand, will send the text it translates to pretty much any app. Additionally, it allows you to email, tweet and do a few other things without leaving the app at all.
Voice Assistant is able to transfer text easily by treating it as a file. You can open files in other apps, so it just treats your text like a file and sends it over. This will allow you to save anything you’ve dictated to the phone as a file in your Dropbox, or as a note in Evernote/Simplenote. This is very helpful for when you want to save voice notes easily without the concern of losing them. The voice recognition, like with most apps, also works pretty well. It rarely made mistakes and recognised the words “comma” and “period” as punctuation (which is always appreciated. If you’re looking for a voice recognition app on your iPhone, Voice Assistant is worth a try.
