Vlingo Upgrades Blackberry App


Cambridge, MA, startup Vlingo today launched a drastically improved version of its voice command and speech-to-text interface for RIM Blackberry smartphones, first released in June. The free vlingo 2.0 software, which works on Blackberry Pearl, Curve, and 8800 series phones, not only allows users to compose text messages and e-mails by speaking into their phones, but also lets them create status updates for Facebook and Twitter and launch built-in Blackberry applications such as the address book, the camera, the memo pad, or the calendar and third-party applications such as Google Maps, the Opera browser, or Viigo.

    I think the memo pad should have no limit with words.
