Dictate allows to dictate text messages into your device instead of typing. It uses speech to text voice recognition technology and it's main purpose is social media text messaging. Never type any text, just dictate it using your speech! Using the clipboard technology, nearly every app that can send and receive text messages can be configured to operate with it. The speech to text recognition engine is the builtin one of iOS devices.
► Convenience of Dictate
In order to send text messages quickly there is a "Send"-button that allows to launch the target app, i.e. Twitter, Facebook, WhatsAapp, Flickr, Email or whatever else is capable of coping with text messages. If you for example select Email using the "Send"-button, the builtin email application is immediately launched and a new email is automatically created that contains the transcribed text from the speech to text recognition. All you need to do is to fill in the message receiver and send it. This works similar for all other social media apps.
► Time saving of Dictate
The benefit in saving time of speech to text technology is tremendous. Compared to typing the savings in time of dictating it can be up to 80%. You also can dictate messages while being in the car, you just need to speak them. There is no more need to type on the display. (Typing on mobiles while driving is forbidden in many countries!)
► Free test period of Dictate
You can use Dictate right out of the box without any restrictions. If you want to use the "Send"-button more frequently, please upgrade to the Pro Version. This allows unlimited usage of the app !

Ratings and Reviews
App shows a menu of supported speech languages but some of the desired language cannot be selected
I previously wrote a negative (2*) preview because after i purchased the Pro Version, I tried to set the app to do the voice-to-text in the language i selected but did not see any button or a box to confirm the selected language beside the “Dismiss” option. But after a few tries, I realized that after I selected “Setup” to choose the speech recognition language, I just needed to select “Dismiss” to go back to the interface where I can start the voice-to-text process by tapping on the red button at the bottom of the screen and just said a few words in the previously set language and saw that the speech is being transcribed in that set language. I wish there were some instructions guiding the user on how to set up the app to do the v-to-t in that language. Thus, the 4 stars instead of 5 ones.
Transcribes voice accurately
A few features would make this perfect. First, if I could use this in tandem with a document writing program, such as Word. Second, if there was a word count somewhere on screen. Lastly, if there were more clear directions for getting the text into the various document writers. Copying and pasting isn’t alway ideal and it can make formatting a pain.
Also, I’d like to see Thai added to language options. I didn’t see it. I speak Thai, but am not literate. My family speaks Thai on my wife’s side. I would like to be able to speak to write in order to talk to family.
Met my expectations, great app with scope for improvement
I am using this tool for an hour now and I already did a good 1000 words. Few issues I found using this app was inability to edit while recording (I feel if you just provide a backspace on the editor) and ads are not annoying at all. They come and go. Man has to eat! I wish if you can configure your AdWords in a way that display relevant ones. I think the setup should ask a few optional questions, and create a persona (like a profile) and show those types of ads. You need to mine your customers and and try to understand who are they and why are they using your app? I am sure you are doing these, if not, consider them. Thanks
