CrackBerry guide to BlackBerry voice to text apps


Promote safe(r) driving with these BlackBerry voice dictation apps!

don't text and drive

Chances are, you have been hit with the dreaded cell phone ban. That means keep your friggin’ hands off of your mobile device while driving. I shouldn’t say dreaded, as it is a good thing. It will hopefully keep the roads safer, allowing you to stay alive long enough to check in at more venues on FourSquare. Now if only they could enforce a “stop putting on your makeup in the mirror” or “quit trying to juggle a coffee and an egg McMuffin” ban as well; the road would be close to accident free. Well, except for the “hey dude, stop rubber necking and stop gawking at the girl walking down the street” drivers.

Now this doesn’t mean that you have to completely neglect your BlackBerry. Oh no, it just means you have to get creative with the way you use it. I present to you the CrackBerry Guide to Voice to Text applications. We’ll have a look at the best ways you can still keep in touch, while minimizing getting busted by the fuzz. While these apps are designed to reduce hands-on BlackBerry use and abuse, the developers and we at CrackBerry take no responsibility if you get caught and slapped with a fine. If you are driving, pull over and have a quick read.

Dragon for Email for BlackBerry Review


CrackBerry idol - AliciaDragon for Email for BlackBerry Smartphones

Have you ever found yourself trying to compose an e-mail but fumble so much with the keyboard that the text looks more like an alien language than actual words? Well, welcome to my world. Whether it be sending out messages for work or writing e-mails to friends I have no patience to type everything out. It just seems too SLOW. Well thanks to a friend from the train and my favorite blackberry blog site I downloaded a free dictation app called Dragon for E-mail. Finally, a hassle-free way of writing e-mail messages by simply speaking and having the app process and translate the audio into text.

Nuance's Dragon for E-Mail is as simple as the motto on their page: Press, Speak, Send. The app is embedded directly into each e-mail so no additional steps or clicks are necessary. How cool is that? With all the time spent reading crackberry, visiting facebook, listening to slacker and, of course, something called a job, anything that frees up time is hands down a winner in my book.

BlackBerry App Roundup for May 7th, 2010; Contest: 25 Copies of Cool Search to be Won!

The BlackBerry App Roundup

Happy May to all! Hope everyone out there is recovering nicely from WES last week... Hopefully there aren't too many 'WES Hangovers'... I trust by now they're long gone. Lots of good stuff came out of the symposium, and for me, I'm probably looking forward to getting my hands on the 9100 the most. I've never been a Pearl user, but hey, it's been updated for the times and I think if you've ever even had a small inclination to give the 8100 a try, the 9100 will be a solid performer. But I digress... Let's start talking BlackBerry Apps. Covered this week in the roundup are the following titles:

Giveaway of the Week: Cool Search
