Say Who: Voice Dialing on the iPhone is Here

The iPhone’s list of features are quite impressive, but of course it’s hard to impress everyone. Some of our most wanted features might never come, but you can expect new features in the upcoming 2.2 firmware (including the ability to download podcasts directly onto the iPhone). For those who have longed for voice dialing the wait is over with this new app called Say Who.

Say Who is a free download via the App Store and was released a few days ago. When I was contacted by the developers of Say Who to review their app I was a bit skeptical because voice-dialing is one of those features that helped sell phones, but we would never use. After trying the app out I’m happy to say this app works exactly as advertised.

Normally with voice activated dialing you need to train your voice for the system to learn it to function properly. With Say Who, there NO training necessary! When I found this out, I was curious to see how well it would work. To use the app is simple. Just launch it, wait for the microphone to activate, then hold down your finger on the screen and say any contact name or number. Say Who will then reveal the closest (or exact) matches and auto dial the number (you can turn this off).

I would say about 90% of the time Say Who was pretty accurate in deciphering my voice. I even tried a couple variations of high pitched and low pitched Terminator voices and it still worked. Nice job on the developers for getting this right. I’m not sure how often I would use voice dialing, but if your hands are tied while driving this app might come in handy for you (just like how JiggleU would).

Voice dialing is here on the iPhone for those who want it. Give this app a try and see for yourself how well it works! Let me know if you like it or not!
