Great App

I have just commenced using this app for dictation. It's handy to use on iPad and iPhone when I need to type brief notes. I'd like to see the time frame extended for recording. This is the only downfall in the App as the recording time is not long enough. Using my iPad is better for keeping files and then cutting and pasting into notes.
I am an Aussie, and it picked up my voice really well for recognition. I see it had not been updated in months. Maybe the creators could extend the recording time with a new update. Just yesterday I purchased the software (from eBay professional 9) to load on my computer at work. I'm hoping the money spent proves to be a good investment. As it runs off the internet (wifi) for now, I'm glad to have this for use on the go with my iPhone.

A real life saver

What an amazing application! I have been using it extensively to dictate articles, Uni assignments, emails, web content, notes etc. I've used it in English, Russian and Spanish and I only need to make a relatively small number of corrections in those languages, certainly few enough to keep using it. I've got a lot of dictation done while in traffic too. Whenever I can't be bothered typing and have writer's block or physically can't type on the PC, I use this amazing free app for which I'm very grateful to its developers. I look forward to even better future versions.

Nicely done

Nice app, thanks for making it work for older versions of iOS and thanks for making it free. Improvement idea: why not make a dragon dictate keyboard? I find having to copy and paste my words irritating. I'm an Aussie, and it recognises my voice pretty good unless I talk too fast or too quietly. Unfortunately I don't have the luxury of iOS 8 an their fancy voice dictation system. I think making a keyboard that we can add is a good idea but I understand it would be a very painstaking process to make so many keyboards for all the different languages. It could still be done, and I would use this app much more often if I didn't have to copy and paste all the time.
