We have to preface this post with a small PSA: You should not text message while driving. You also shouldn’t apply makeup, read a novel or eat anything with a utensil while driving. While those and other unsafe habits aren’t directly policed, laws are being enacted nationwide to penalize texters who endanger others while using their phones in traffic.
That’s part of the reason why Dragon Dictation for the iPhone was created. The free app records what you say and converts it to text that’s copied to your phone’s clipboard for texting, emailing or even just saving for a later time.
Yes, it could have great applications for students and journalists for transferring someone else’s speech, but right now it is best used for short bursts of text, like text messages.
I tried the app for the past few days and was left beyond impressed with how well it worked.
