Dragon Go! is a free iPhone app.Some say Dragon Go actually works better than Siri.It can even do a few things that Siri can't, and it has a near-stellar track record for accuracy.
Dragon Go! has been developed by leading speech-recognition software maker Nuance. It turns your iOS device into your own personal secretary. You can ask it to buy Angry Birds, for instance, and it will fetch it from the App Store.You can ask for movie times, and it can use geo-location to match to find theaters near you. Siri has very limited abilities to interact with other apps, and that's one reason Dragon Go! is more impressive.
Dragon Go! can connect to many apps and websites, from Open Table for restaurant reservations to YouTube to Twitter.
If you're looking for a voice-recognition assistant for your iPhone, but you don't want to pay for an iPhone 4S with Siri, get the Dragon Go! app.
