Just a quickie for you SayIt users out there. The headless personal voice assistant app for BlackBerry 10 has had yet another update introducing a few new features as well as one or two bug fixes. 

What's interesting here - and a real testament to the developer - is that one of the improvements to the app is related to an issue that a CrackBerry forum member highlighted to me. I passed on the info to the dev and a week later we have an update - magic! 

We recently featured SayIt in our top 5 apps for in the car and it's nice to see the developer of SayIt continuing to ensure the app is working as well as possible. I suspect this will be an ongoing procedure as the app does far more than the native voice controls on BlackBerry 10. 

New in the latest version:

  • Add recorder timer for SayIt run in background in order to avoid users press the middle (Play/Pause) button unintentionally. The default recorder timer is 10s. Users can change the recorder timer by accessing SayIt’s Settings and change the “Background Recorder timer”
  • Fix no sound or notification on some devices when running SayIt on background mode
  • Change the notification sound
  • Add preview dialogs when users press the middle button to record or stop
  • Bugs fixed
