Vlingo is your very own Virtual Assistant- Voice App By vlingo corporation

posted Sep 26, 2012, 4:16 AM by Stephanie Wei

Looking for a voice activated virtual assistant on your iPhone 3GS or iPhone 4? Look no further. In addition to search, messaging, voice dialing and directions, Vlingo integrates with your Facebook and Twitter accounts making it the most social assistant available. All functionality is now 100% free, so download Vlingo today to explore everything Vlingo can do for you.

Vlingo is your very own Virtual Assistant. Simply speak to Vlingo and it will help you get more done, faster and easier than before. Try saying "Text John; What's up?" or "find Italian restaurants" or even "update Facebook; Vlingo rocks!" 

“Vlingo will do whatever you've told it to do” - Wall Street Journal

Apple’s voice-controlled assistant Siri appears here to stay, with the feature retained for the iPhone 5.

If you are unconvinced by Siri, but still want to issue voice commands to your iPhone, Vlingo is among the front runners you should be checking out.

The app contains an "intent engine" which works out what you are asking it to do and respond accordingly.

You can use the app to send texts, set reminders, find out the weather in another country, update your Facebook status – pretty much anything.

Vlingo, which was acquired by rival Nuance earlier this year, says that its system works better than Siri as it better understands slang, while others claim that Siri is preferable as it is more integrated.

Why not try out both to see which one works best for you.
