    I use iota+ text editor with the speech plugin. Both free on the market and works great. On my evo v, btw.

    whats wrong with Google? I use it in place of typing. It gets long sentences correct most of the time. Bring up the keyboard, hit the "Mic" and talk away...

    ?? whatever floats your boat. You are asking a question not relevant to the original question about voice dictation. You can use google to transcribe anywhere you use a keyboard!

    Anywhere you want to type really. If you're looking to make notes for yourself, you can try opening Google Now and say "Google, note to self: bla" you'll get your transcript mailed and the recording attached.
    Or just use something dead simple like color note and use the keyboard for voice dictation.
