    Well I just downloaded Vlingo (vlingo) iTunes Link: http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/M...mUvbUpU1460977

    This is a free app that lets you speak, kind of like the new google mobile app. So far my favorite part is adding voice dialing to the iPhone. You just say, "Call Steve Jobs mobile" and it will find the contact in your phone book and dial the number. I've changed out the default phone app for vlingo in my iPhone dock.

    I used and loved Vlingo on my Blackberry and downloaded it onto my iPhone at once. It's got a ways to go. It failed to recognize what I said to it 10 out of 10 tries! The Google voice recognition hardly ever fails, even on fairly obscure things, so for me the comparison is just not there. I'm glad Vlingo is trying on the iPhone and hope that it gets better (and adopts the "note to self" function the BB had...man I used that all the time!), but right now...thumbs down.

    Yeah, i think google is one of the best at voice rec. Just out of curiosity where are you from? Vlingo seems to be more sensitive to accents than google. It works perfect for me because I live in the US and have a pretty neutral accent at that...compared to Chicago / New York type accents.

    I'm in the Midwest US; as "neutral" as they come, probably.
