Apps driven by voice recognition will certainly now be getting much more attention now that Apple has integrated its Siri technology into iPhone 4S.
On the Android platform, there are a number of apps that include voice recognition – including Google’s own search service. Digging deeper into the Android Market, though, you find apps that can use voice recognition and allow you to speak commands that are translated into actions.
Task To Do Free List, an app in the Android Market, developed by Dr. Achim Leubner, attempts to integrate voice-command capability into a task-reminder app. By hitting the microphone icon built into the app, you’re permitted to dictate the title of an task, as well as notes explaining what the task is about. You’re also given the option of typing the information and details directly into the task list application.
We like the layout of the Task To Do List Free, and think it’s organized well as a stand-alone app to help you grab control of the tasks that you have ahead of you – and keep you on track. This app provides alerts and lets you tag each task with a priority status.
Voice recognition: not so much. We found we had to repeat the same phrase seven or eight times to get something close to what we wanted put into the task notes or task list.
Download and try Task To Do Free List because it’s a nice task manager for Android tablets, but don’t count on the voice recognition option as being all that helpful.
