Promptu Releases ShoutOUT TXT, SMS Dictation App
Software developer Promptu Systems has released ShoutOUT TXT, an application that lets you dictate messages to your iPhone and send them as a regular SMS text message.
The application allows users to set up an account and begin texting via their contact list or any phone number that can be texted. Users receive the first 25 text messages for free and can make in-app purchases of $4.99 for 250 messages, or $1.99 for 50. AT&T currently charges $15.00 for 1500 text messages, which would retail for $30.00 on ShoutOUT TXT.
For users who want to send typed text messages there is no charge. Since this app uses its own server, AT&T is bypassed.
The app currently supports North American English. It works on AT&T in the states, and on Bell Mobility, Rogers, and Virgin Mobile in Canada.
ShoutOUT TXT requires iPhone OS 3.0 or later to install and run and retails for $0.99.
