Vlingo Unlocks the Cloud-based Phonebook
CAMBRIDGE, MASS. (July 15, 2010) – Vlingo Corporation, the world’s leading provider of intelligent voice applications that turn your words into action, today released a new feature for Android devices users called “SuperDialer.”
Vlingo’s original voice dialer connects users with people from a personal address book while SuperDialer expands on that functionality by accessing an infinite phone book to bridge a connection with any business, anywhere, anytime. This groundbreaking functionality can be accessed quickly and easily by using Vlingo’s Tap & Speak home screen widget. Doing so instantaneously unlocks reviews, ratings, maps and directions in addition to one-click calling.
“Consumers who have experienced the convenience and safety of Vlingo have asked for more ways to use it on the go,” said Dave Grannan, president & CEO at Vlingo. “Adding SuperDialer was a natural progression to the product. With Vlingo, people no longer need to use a phone book, call 411 or search the web just to call a business. Instead you can just say what you want to do and we turn your words into actions.”
SuperDialer surpasses other voice dialing applications because it gives users the flexibility in how they access the information they need:
- “Call Joe’s Stone Crab in Miami Beach”
- “Call dentist”
- “Directions to Fenway Park”
In addition to SuperDialer, Vlingo for Android can power most tasks on Android devices. Users can simply press the “Vlingo widget” to:
- send text and email messages
- search the web using Google or Yahoo!
- update Twitter status
- open built-in and 3rd party applications
- speak into any application with the Vlingo Everywhere voice keyboard
- SafeReader – hear incoming text & email messages while you drive
