Freeform Dictation for Texting and Emailing — Now with Bluetooth!

With version 1.2, it's easier than ever to dictate and send a text message or email while on the go. vokul guides you through composing and sending your message with clear and pleasant voice prompts. Version 1.2 adds Bluetooth operation.* It's the safest way to send a message while driving!

Post to Facebook and Twitter — Completely Handsfree!

New in version 1.2, you can post to Facebook and Twitter using just your voice. You can also listen to your Twitter timelines and Facebook newsfeed as a live audio stream. Just say "vokul play Facebook" or "vokul play Twitter" to hear what your friends are saying. Use vokul's media player voice commands to control playback – just like when listening to a song, podcast, or audiobook.

Find Songs & Podcasts Quickly and Easily

Ask vokul to play something from your iTunes library by saying a portion of a song name, podcast, audiobook, album, artist, genre, playlist, or iTunes U lecture. You can say as little or as much of an item name as you know, and vokul should find it fast – no network connection necessary!

Fitness Mode with Tempo Adjustment

vokul's Fitness Mode is great for runners, cyclists, and athletes – playback tempo can be adjusted to match workout pace with voice commands like "faster" and "a little slower." Shortened media player voice commands allow you to focus on your workout.

True Handsfree Technology

Unlike other voice control apps, vokul can be controlled entirely with your voice. vokul responds to your commands only when called upon – just say "hey vokul" to get vokul's attention. You can even say commands while audio is playing, thanks to vokul's acoustic echo cancellation (AEC) technology. With vokul, button presses and distracted screen glances are a thing of the past!
