The one thing I always thought was missing on the iPhone was a speech dialer. This feature is an absolute must in today’s world (especially since I can get pulled over and get a ticket for using a cell phone in my state).
Cactus is a simple, easy to use, Free (currently) speech dialer for your iPhone.
I downloaded the app and immediately started to use it to place a few calls. "Call Dan Mobile", I said, and the app came back with Dan’s correct numbers, "Call Lee Home", again, worked as advertised. "Call Dad", oh oh, that didn’t work, "Call Dad", nope. Not working on that one. I tried a few more (30 or so), and found that 9 out of 10 worked great. For me, that is probably close enough for a place on my iPhones front page.
The interface is very easy to use– simply hold a large button down and say "Call John Home", the app thinks for a few seconds and then brings up the result(s). You can control whether you want multiple results or just single results in the settings. I also changed the setting for automatically launching the call and it worked like a charm (you may want to keep this setting off until you get comfortable with the apps ability to match your voice). You can also set the app to launch the contact’s main number rather than provide a full list of numbers.
Would I Buy Again: Yes
Learning Curve: None.
Who is it for: Anyone who wants to stay safe while driving on the road or is too lazy to hit the numbers on the phone to dial!
What I like: Works Well, Free, Easy to Use, and I don’t have to "train" the system to my voice.
What I Don’t: If it worked 100%, but thats wishful thinking. 🙂
Final Statement: Great little utility, which has found its way to my iPhone’s front screen. Definately worth a look at the current price.
