IS VLINGO GOING TO BE SIRI FOR THE REST OF US?
I noticed this morning that the iPhone app VLINGO had an update and mentioned it was free and could do SMS and email.
I've had Vlingo installed on my phone for a while and think I've played with it a few times but not much… I think they previously charged for the ability to SMS and email from the app but now it's free.
I tried it out and was able to VERY easily send a few texts and an email.
I tried asking it to map to a location and it worked as well as a Google search too.
I think the company watched the iPhone 4S announcement and dropped the price to free for those of us who realized that the Siri integration in IOS5 wouldn't be showing up in any phones other then the 4S.
I was never overly impressed with what I could do with Siri, to me Dragon Dictate was FAR more usable to me since I could dictate and then SMS or email straight from the app.
One question I've got though is how Vlingo is going to monitize the app since they've gone free.
What do you think?
