Just wondering what users of Vlingo think of the facility. Particularly interested in reviews from any UK based users. Having done a forum search there are mixed reviews but do seem to be a lot of problems caused by downloading the app and mixed reactions as to how well it actually performs.

Sounds like a great app in principle - particularly the facility to dictate emails - but does it actually work or cause more problems than its worth.

I have been using it for a few days now and no complaints. Makes texting and emailing much easier (I'm not much of a typer). The only thing I haven't figured out yet is how to use it with BB Messenger. It will open the program but it will not allow me to use voice to choose my contact or to compose my message to that contact. It treats my message as a web search. I emailed customer support and waiting for the answer.

I have been using it for several days, and really like it. It makes composing a text msg at 75mph on LA freeways much eaiser.

Vlingo emailed me with a answer to my question, Vlingo can only open BB Messenger. They did say that they will be working on getting the rest to work.
