App Type: iPhone

Price: FreeUser Rating:
Do you know those websites with auto correct mistakes? Most of them end up turning innocent words like ‘cookies’ or ‘pizza’ into ‘penis’ or ‘condom’, which makes me doubt their veracity, but still makes them fun.
I love apps that put spoken words into text, if only for their entertainment value, because these babies make a LOT of funny mistakes as well.
Such as somehow turning ‘plethora’ (trust me, that’s not a word I use often) into ‘sturgis restaurant’. I know, it’s not quite as funny as ‘penis’, but it’s weird to say the least. For a free app it actually works pretty well. Apart from the ‘plethora’ thing (and, let’s face it, that’s not a word anyone should use) it got most of what I said down pat. It’s default setting is English, but it also supports Czech, Danish, German, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Ukrainian.
Big downside? Huge even? There’s no way to export your notes! That really sucks! They should set up a connection with Dropbox or Google docs or anything. At the very least an option to email the notes to yourself.
So all in all, even though it’s free, this is definitely not the best speech app, so I’ll keep looking and hoping someone will get it right!
We rate this app 2.5 out of 5 stars
