Vlingo launches software for BlackBerry

14 Comments

You’ve seen some of their fine white label work with Yahoo!, but Vlingo’s going it alone with their new application which promises to control pretty much everything on your BlackBerry through voice. All BlackBerrys come built in with a voice dialling app, but Vlingo is going to do a lot more than just that… You’ll be able to text and e-mail by dictation, open applications like Calendar and Maps, search your address book, and make web searches using Vlingo. One very cool feature Vlingo’s packing is Note2Self, where you can pull the classic “Note to self: Pick up laundry. Groom cat. Begin plans for global domination”, which then get tacked onto your tasks, or sent to yourself as an e-mail or text. Super-awesome. I’m really excited about the possibility of third-party apps plugging into Vlingo, too. Tune in to our next podcast to get the full down-low on the new software.

    It seems that Vlingo is not ready for T-Mobile, yet.

    Although the mobile site said vlingo doesn’t support my device (VZW 8703e), I downloaded the version for handheld OS 4.2.1 (which is running on my device) and it seems to be working just fine. A little less capable of understanding my voice than the video shows, but other than that, no problems so far.

    I tried to install on my 8130, and it wouldn’t accept “prompt” as the permission level for certain permissions, and I can’t seem to set it to “allow”. I wish it would just settle for “prompt”!

    There are connection problems for some phone models on T-mobile. We are working now on the fix so T-mobile folks can join in.
