Voice Assistant is a hidden gem in the dictation app world
I was recently given the opportunity to test a great dictation application called Voice Assistant by QuanticApps. I have used my fair share of voice recognition apps, including Siri of course. Since I had never heard of this application before, I was skeptical as to how accurate it would be. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it is extremely accurate, more-so than other applications I have used, such as Dragon. I spoke 3 paragraphs and there wasn't a single error, even when I was talking fast to try and trip it up. Not only that, but it boasts a robust list of features as well.
To initiate a recording, all you do is hit the mic button and begin speaking. This would be a great app for journalists or people who would rather speak into their device than to type or write freehand. Once you are done recording, you can either hit the microphone button again or you can set Voice Assistant to auto-detect the end of your speech.
This is a great alternative to Siri, especially for iDevice users without a 4S who don't wish to use a Spire proxy. The one downfall is that, like Siri, Voice Assistant requires a network connection(whether it's a cellular connection or wi-fi). Voice Assistant is available now in the iTunes store for the special price of $0.99 for a limited time. Go grab it now!
