Most Android smartphone users are familiar with Swype’s keyboard that allows you to type faster than any other possible format. The software has been featured on several Android smartphones and was a big hit for those users who text a lot.
In November, Apple released its iPhone 4S, and with it the digital voice assistant Siri. As as result of Siri’s capability and success, voice control applications have blown up, with many companies looking to get a piece of the action.
Swype announced recently their integration of Nuance’s Dragon dictation, one of the leading dictation software programs available, allowing the Swype users a shot at dictation. Currently, the software is being offered in a beta mobile app for those who do not have Swype pre-installed on their phones, those who have it already installed will have to wait until the official version is released.
To get the mobile app, visit Swype’s website on your mobile phone and register with an email address, they’ll automatically send you a download link.
What do you think of Swype’s integration with Dragon dictation? Do the non-iPhone users really miss voice control software like Siri? Leave us a comment below and let us know. As always, please feel free to share this with your friends.
