An awing solution to miraculously amplify any sound playing from any smartphone or speaker without the need for cables? Sounds interesting, huh? In fact, such a thing exists and iFrogz are the first (that we've seen) to pioneer such a miraculous piece of modern technology. All you get with the iFrogz Boost NearField Audio Speaker ($39.99) is flawless, strengthened sound - none of the hassles involved with tangled wires, plagued syncing or anything of the nature.
Nuance impressed us with their Dragon speech to text dictation app for the iPhone, and since then they have been busy. Recently they released an update to Dragon to work on the iPod touch line, as well as a new Dragon search application that lets you search several of the popular search engines using your voice with a unique, very intuitive interface.
Remember that super-sweet dictation app for the iPhone called Dragon Dictation that Gear Diary did a demo video of a while back? Remember how it was able to translate spoken words into text with near perfect accuracy, and let you send it directly to the clipboard or a new mail or text message? Most importantly, remember how he said he hoped it wouldn't be too expensive? Well it's out in the App Store now, and it's free.
Nuance, the makers of speech recognition software for the Mac and PC, have announced that their application, Dragon Naturally Speaking, will soon be available in the App Store for the iPhone. The application lets you dictate short 20-30 second clips, which it then converts to text with astonishing accuracy, giving you the ability to edit, copy to clipboard, or send to Mail or SMS. Watch the magic in action after the break.
