    I use my phone in my car a lot and I want to be able to make calls without touching or looking at the phone. So far my old old Windows mobile phone does better than any Android app I

    Vlingo. You can set it to be actively listening in the background. Eats battery in that mode though. Although S-Voice can do that to AFAIK, just say "Hello Galaxy" and it will activate.

    Do you use a phone dock in the car? Does your phone have a dock app? If you have a dock app (there are several in the Play store), that will save you the key press to wake, and the slide to unlock. After that, you're down to one button to start your calling app...

    thank you for the replies. I tried VLingo that comes with the Galaxy s3. If there is more than one number it says there is more than one number and then stops. It doesn't say what the options are. My old windows phone would say "call john smith on mobile, work or work2?"
    Or if there is only one number it would say "Call John Smith, correct?" If you say "Yes" it calls. If you say "No" it says, "Try Again"

    I don't know if there is a phone dock for the Galaxy s3.

    I haven't had a chance to try Choice Dialer Plus yet. I will.

    I looked at reviews for Choice Dialer Plus.
    They say it doesn't support Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) which is what I have.
    Also, almost half the reviews gave it 1 star. Very bad ratings and comments.
    Some people had a better experience, but doesn't sound very promising and without ICS support won't work at all for me.

    No S-Voice app on my GNote/4.0.3. There is an S-Choice app, really a kind of app store, but with only a couple dozen apps. And no voice input options that I can see... Maybe you're confused with that?

    There is also an app called Voice Talk that, when started by tapping to start and tapping to choose the Call module (8 other modules available), will indeed answer to "Hi Galaxy", and "Call Lulu mobile", etc.
    Never used it yet though. But I see there is still a lot of tapping involved.

    What the app does when there are multiple persons or multiple phone numbers for one person is important. The app that comes with the Galaxy (driven by VLingo, or can choose Google voice) leaves you no voice command option for dealing with these situations.

    Regarding automobile safety, I've recently discovered this NEW smartphone app called TALKLER — EMAIL FOR YOUR EARS. They describe themselves as the FREE smartphone app for heads-up, hands-off, reads-aloud-to-you, voice-controlled email. I recommend checking it out: Talkler.com
