HOLLA - Finally you can dictate texts!

 
 
Reply Sat 2 Jan, 2010 06:17 pm
As if Swype didn't speed things up enough, now there is an app that allows you to talk to your Droid and then it converts what you say into a text message or Facebook or Twitter entry.

It's called Holla and it is now on the market. The download is a whopping DOLLAR and uses the Google voice recognition engine built into the Droid. Speak slowly and clearly and it is quite accurate.

SO that's the second app I've paid for - and IMHO well worth the slight expense.

This is bound to be very popular, so get onboard early!

@YankeeDudeL,
Granted, Holla isn't perfect (after all, it's brand new) and it won't come up as a text entry alternative for websites and messages. You have to open Holla, speak into it, and then direct the text to wherever it's going. But it's a useful tool, and more than just an interesting novelty. I can see it going very far as a must-have app this year.

@The Chief,
i used the program to take dictation and pasted it here... and it works brilliantly

The above was spoken into Holla and then copied to the system clipboard. I then long-pressed the text field to paste it in. Much faster than typing it all in!
