    I just found a very cool app called Edwin, Speech-to-Speech in appbrain
    installed and must say its makes you feel like you have truly a SMART phone. asked it weather, time, open app, spell a word, definition of word etc etc and it spoke it everytime, tried to stump it with weather in hong kong and it told me! lol
    anyway it takes voice command to a very big next level I think
    super cool and free!!!

    Just saw it as well, reviews were 50/50. So it performs well for you?

    Just found this on app-brain, it's pretty amazing.
    I could try to explain what it does, but just watch the video, it'll explain everything.

    It works pretty good, it's still in beta, but definitely some potential here, anyone that has it try this.

    Hit the speak button and say "Tell me about yourself"

    put it on british. she sounds hotter.

    but i think the app name should be changed or the voice, because it's a woman voice for an app named edwin. little bit of a disconnect there.

    This does look pretty amazing .... is this ONLY voice to voice though? For instance in VLingo I can say "search subject" and it will open the browser with results.

    Also I assume this doesn't have anything like SafeReader that announces texts, emails and calls?

    If those things were added this would truly be an unbeatable app.

    It only picks up certain commands... which wasn't many in my case. And half the time it doesn't recognize what I'm asking. I'll probably uninstall until major updates, but it's a cool idea.

    Reminds me of Galaxy Quest. "Computer, are there any planets nearby that have beryllium spheres?" ;) (I crack myself up)

    Just installed Edwin, and so far am very impressed with the speed that it recognizes your commands.

    Loved it, until the recent update where they added Wolfram, now almost everything I say it uses wolfram to look it up. I don't even know what wolfram is.
