    A buddy has an app on his non-hero phone that is voice activated and it will pull local directory assistance from the net. I have searched for an app like this, but I cant find anything. It is like a local phone book or directory assistance online.

    We needed to find a liquor store and he said ABC into his phone and it gave us all the locations within a 30 mile radius.

    Anyone have any idea of a Hero app that does the same thing?

    Was he using an android phone or a winmo phone?

    I had an app on my previous omnia that used a voice search option, that was prob. the only thing windows mobile had going for it! It was Microsoft Live/Bing.

    I had this on my previous phone, the Instinct. If I remember correctly, (which I may not!) it opened the stock Sprint Navigation app. I also wonder if there is some way to do this on the hero? I did see a speech input option somewhere.
