Vlingo Debuts in Android Market

Vlingo Corporation has formally announced the availability of their first Android widget application today.  Called Vlingo for Android, it lets users speak to their handset in order to get it to carry out commands.  For example, one could press widget button and send a text message, email, or tweet.  Other options include searching Google Maps, Google Search, or simply dialing contacts.

Another great feature of Vlingo for Android is SafeReader,  an option which lets users hear their incoming text messages and emails while driving or otherwise occupied.  This too is as simple as pressing a button.  Once activated, all incoming messages are read out loud to the user.

Vlingo for Android runs on handsets with 2.0 or higher and is available in the Android Market for a one-time $9.99 purchase.   According to the company, this price is a limited time offer.  It’s not know what the cost will be once the introductory period is over.  Look for Vlingo to arrive later this year as a pre-loaded feature on a number of devices!

    What about GTalk?? Will it read my incoming gTalk messages???

    • Erin

      You can use Vlingo to compose text in gTalk but at this time we don't support reading incoming gTalk messages.

    My understanding from the email I received from Vlingo is that the cost will ultimately be $19.99, after the introductory period.

    If do purchase it now, will I be able to use additional (actually preferred) languages when they are available or is it necessary to make further investments?
