Vlingo Sets $10 App Free After Google Voice Actions Announcement

In light of yesterday’s Google announcement of Voice Actions, Vlingo has decided to free up their own voice application.  Effective immediately, the app which previously cost $9.99 will be now be offered at no cost.  And unlike the new Google feature, the voice activated app/widget will work on Android 2.1 “Eclair” and not just for the few, privileged Froyo users.  Oh, in case you wondered if Vlingo was upset about Google stepping on their toes, here’s an excerpt from their blog.

After playing with it for the last hour on our Sprint Evo running Froyo our conclusion is: Awesome Product. The Google guys have done it again. The app is snappy, has great polish and usability.  Voice Actions has set a new standard that the teams at Apple, Nokia, RIM and Microsoft are going to be measured by.
