Vlingo announced at CTIA today that they have added SafeReader to their software free. For those who aren’t aware of Vlingo, it’s the world’s most popular mobile voice application, and SafeReader will now add the ability to read your messages to you. Let me elaborate on the details.
Vlingo was first founded back in 2006. When it first came out, it was free. It still has a free version, but the paid version has more features. Just when you thought it was good, it became great. It was designed as a way to deter texting and emailing while driving. Instead of being tempted to text back, you could fix a side key to open Vlingo and tell it who to message and what to say and send it. Easy and convenient, it has become a favorite application for many. It gives you the ability to command by voice to text, email, or update your status on Facebook or Twitter by your voice. The application is available in free and plus version from the Vlingo website or the BlackBerry App World. Vlingo Plus is only $19.99. What’s the difference between them? Let me show you…
The application has been spoken about highly for using voice to text, and of course with the Plus version, you can send to everyone. I’ll be doing a thorough review and post it in a few days. The SafeReader takes the great ability and turns it to text to voice, reading to you. You can download Vlingo from the following sites.
Let us know if you currently use Vlingo or if you ever have and what you think about it. We’d love to hear your opinions. I’m excited about it, the SafeReader option isn’t a cure, but can save some accidents for those of us who can’t turn our phones off while driving.
