Improved Voice Command Reportedly Coming with iOS 5
On the heels of Apple's confirmation that the future of its iOS will be on display at the WWDC, which commences this year on June 6th at San Francisco's Moscone West, there is rampant speculation about what the refreshed operating system will serve up. On Tuesday, sources close to the development of iOS 5 say Apple is aiming to drastically improve upon voice commands.
Last year, through the acquisition of Siri, Apple gained access to groundbreaking technologies so intelligent that, if implemented via iDevices, could make our favorite Apple products like the iPhone vastly "smarter" than any previous model. Siri, after all, has pioneered applications that enable users to deliver voice commands that prompt the app to do the research or other legwork required to complete a particular task.
The use of Siriís artificial intelligence and assistance technology is said to be deeply integrated into the OS for all the different services offered.
While many are already speculating the iPhone 5 will debut at the same time as iOS 5 in fall, at this time there is really no concrete evidence to otherwise suggest that Apple will stray from tradition and not release the 5th generation iPhone in June at WWDC.

I can honestly say I have NEVER used the Voice Command on my iPhone4. Sure when I first got the phone I played around and tried it, but on a day-to-day basis, Voice Command does not offer me any gain. It is a cool feature, but for me, that is all it is...cool.

I use voice command almost everyday between the gym and selecting music in my car. Its about time apple stepped up, the android voice command system is much betterThe only thing I ask in return for helping, is that you click the thanks button, Thanks!

The main thing stopping me from using Voice Command is that fact that it takes to long to start. Press and hold home, once the screen shows, wait a few seconds, then speak. To me, it takes too long to be useful.

Apple used to be the kings of voice commands. I just wanna be able to text with voice. Wow the trouble that would save me.

*EDIT: I use Vlingo to find places on the built in maps app while on the road and it works like a charm. I just tried it with texting and apparently to use Vling to compose texts & emails requires purchasing it for $6.99 for each function, or $9.99 to be able to do both.

I think the iPhone 5 will come out a little later than usual. Hopefully so they can get stuff like this running smoothly on the device and use LTE! I also think that if Apple is implementing new voice command software into the i5 that it'll take it to a whole new level and once again beat out the competition.

TTS would be boss if it was integrated into the native SMS app. I dont like having to respond to a SMS from Dragon Dictation.
Id like to see Swype on IOS, in the native SMS app.If you think Im serious, thats funny.

The problem with dragon dictation is, you still have to launch the app, speak, copy, and paste it in the text reply ... and while addmittidly not taking as long as typing a text message, still takes my eyes off the road, which I don't like.
Does Vlingo work right in the message app? Or is the same copy/paste premise.
We have the iphones and also a droid and the new Thunderbolt, and the voice to text app in andriod is far superior in application, though sometimes it "hears" things oddly. LOL
