vlingo 1.1 Out of Beta... Ready for General Public!


I love it! Much better. Does what it says so far. Still testing other commands.


1. I had the Beta version and when I opened the application today, there was a note about the new version.

2. Vlingo 1.1 has not been tested on OS 4.5 as yet. (I took the risk anyway).

3. You will be asked to reboot your phone (as expected).


Can anybody confirm vlingo 1.1 working on blackberry curve 8310 OS 4.5 ? I went to the site to try this product out and it gave me a disclaimer that it had not been tested on OS 4.5.

Seems to work fine. Only problem I had was after the initial reboot, all incoming sound via the earpiece was dead. Did a soft reset and everything is fine.

I have downloaded this to my Curve and my hair is turning grey trying to get it to work as promised. Accurancy is awful and time consuming to "repair" its mistakes. JOTT much better even though there is a charge. Worth the charge.

I think the app works pretty well. Voice recognition barely needs repeated. My problem with it is that you lose the threaded sms when you reply to a message using vlingo. If they fixed that I would use it more.

Download this software - it's great for those who don't like to type. I've downloaded it and like it a lot - amazingly it's FREE!

A few of tips - download directly using your bb - once you've installed go ahead and turn off the bb, pull the battery and restart - it'll recongnize the features better. Practice the commands and it gets better - lastly frequentl memory cleans help performance.

I get the following error message after I open the application:

Error starting vlingoForBlackberry_en: Module 'vlingoForBlackberry_en-4' attempts to access a secure API

Does anyone what this means and how I can fix it ?

Just loaded on my Curve 8330. It is a little quirky, but I think it will get better with a little practice. The voice recognition is pretty good, but you need to read closely so you don't send something inappropriate...Ooops...

Does anyone know how to tell Vlingo what email account to use for outgoing emails???

Ok, I am a bit of a geek, but this is one of the coolest programs I have seen in a while. Of course all my friends are calling me lazy, but I still have to push buttons and talk....So I am not really that Lazy????

It is fun so far, so we will see in a week or two?
