    Which of these apps is better. I cant seem to get Edwin to do anything for me. All it does is pull up some weird web page, even though it clearly understands my command. Just wondering which app you guys think is better.

    I've never heard of Edwin, but Vlingo does what it is supposed to do for me.

    Never heard of Edwin either but I have tried Vlingo. Works well but does not call or text certain contacts so I had to ditch it. I tried hard to keep it. A pretty useful program all around though

    I'm not sure if you guys got the update to Vlingo with the In-Car feature (I believe it's for Sprint phones only...which is odd), but.....HOLY CRAP!! Talk about cool!! It's a total hands free solution while driving, and deadly accurate!

    The coolest thing is not only does it perform text/call/navigation/etc tasks, but you can actually ask it a question and it will speak the response. I mean, you can ask it ANYTHING! I tried it out a bit in the house and it spit an answer out to everything I asked it.

    I tried stuff like, "Who won the 2005 world series?", "What number did Jordan wear?", "Who is the star of (name a TV show)?" and it answers. Pretty rad!

    I can't speak for Vlingo, but I love Edwin. It has a great sense of humor. Just try asking it the meaning of life, or try telling it that you love it.

    I have Vlingo on my Ally and it has In Car beta.

    I agree that it's accruate. I was heading to a doctor's office but couldn't remember the street address. I told it to navigate to the doctor's office with including the city. It looked in Google and then gave me the information.

    It sent me on a longer route. I knew a short cut and it changed my route based on the fact that I took a different street.

    Vlingo works pretty well for me. I can hold the search button on my evo and tell it to text or call one of my contacts, or it will google search for me depending on what I say.

    I love Vlingo as well I find it very accurate. It does need 3g or wifi to work though I wish it could check my contacts with out going on 3g but even with that I find it the best out there. And it is free lol Iphone users have to pay for it so even better
