I just downloaded the free Dragon Dictation iPhone app. It is really cool.

Here’s how it works:

After installing and launching the app, you tap a button that says, “Record.” You then speak your message — there’s a limit of about 20 seconds, perfect for a text or quick email recording. After you’re done recording the message, you click done, & then your message is sent to Dragon’s servers, where it is translated into text and then a few seconds later, delivered to your phone.

It’s not perfect, as it added an “at” that I didn’t say.

If you find that the dictation is wrong, you can easily edit it by clicking the keyboard button.

And then email, text, or copy it to your clipboard for later pasting.

There’s been a lot of hype about “cloud computing” and being able to use a limited-capacity terminal or mobile device leverage the power of dozens of Gigs of RAM and multi-quad core processors etc. This is the first time that I’ve experienced it. And I like it!

There’s not much else to say. I’ll update this post if I learn more.

    I’ll definitely be trying this out. :)
    Seems handy for when your trying to make notes/sms in a confined space (bus/tube etc). Accuracy will need to be a bit better than shown for real world use though, don’t you think?
