If you’re living in a Siri-less world, you don’t have to forgo the conveniences of Apple’s sassy virtual assistant entirely. Vlingo brings Siri-like features (minus the backtalk) to your iPhone. Using Vlingo, you can use your voice to dictate and send an email or SMS; find locations on a map; post updates to Facebook and Twitter; dial by voice; and perform web searches. Example: After I asked Vlingo “What is the weather in San Francisco?,” the app instantly presented Google results showing it was sunny and 54 degrees. If you want longer dictations transcribed into text for copying and pasting, download the free Dragon Dictation app, too.
