Review: Voice on the Go

Verdict

Voice on the Go logoOur final analysis is dependent upon what users will expect from Voice on the Go. Those looking for a hands free content management solution to increase uptime while traveling will find what they need in VOTG. However, they will not necessarily find everything they want, although, like we said before, Voice on the Go is looking to change that.

For our money, $6/month is a small price to pay for anyone needing this type of solution (yes, you still get charged minutes by your carrier, but most enterprise users will have extended minutes plans anyways, mitigating heavy usage). We’d like to see Voice on the Go move away from an audio file format in the next iteration of their solution, and offer a voice to text format, which we think would eliminate the problems mentioned above, as well as open the door for greater functionality. Creating a Voice on the Go app that sits on the BlackBerry and better integrates with users’ device-side contact and calendar functionality would also be a great boon.

However, Voice on the Go does achieve its goal of providing reliable hands/eyes-free access to your email, calendar & contacts. Voice on the Go therefore gets 3.5 out of 5 uptime enhancers for getting the job done, but teasing us into wanting more.

Review: 3.5 out of 5

    Having tried the service out and been initially impressed I do agree with your recommendations for the next genesis of the VOTG service…should definitely enhance the ability to stay in touch but also keep the attention on the road.

    I don’t like the idea of being dependent on the service. I mean, apart from the small risk of these guys’ server malfunction – i just don’t want to pay monthly. And i don’t want to discover that i am too talkative :^) – and have to pay more. Is there an unlimited access feature? Or a pure software solution?

    There are so many texting apps on the market coming up these days, but after trying a few of them, I think Text’nDrive is a superior product than the one mentioned in this article. It’s easier to use, works on both iPhone and BlackBerry, and they keep us informed on the latest texting laws in the U.S. and Canada (http://www.textndrive.com/textingwhiledriving.php). Good job folks
