Dragon Remote Microphone
By Nuance Communications
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
The Dragon Remote Microphone app turns your iOS device into a wireless microphone, making it easier and more comfortable for individuals to use their Dragon Desktop software. Users can now opt to use the remote microphone app as an alternative to a supported headset.
This app can be used with Dragon NaturallySpeaking for the PC (Home Edition and higher for Versions 11.5 and higher) and Dragon Dictate for the Mac (Versions 2.5 and higher).

The app requires a WiFi connection to the PC running the appropriate version of Dragon software.
What's New in Version 1.4
Now supports Spanish and Italian.
I wish a better alternative existed
I had problems using the app on DragonDictate 3 because the app would not recognize my computer. Since upgrading to DragonDictate 4 (last week), the app fails to recognize my computer greater than 70% of the time.
It is very frustrating, requiring reboots of both the iOS app and the OS X app.
Without an update since 2012, this appears to be orphanware. I hate that this would happen from a company such as Nuance.
I sometimes use a quality third-party app to record dictations and upload them for transcription. But I'm unaware of alternative app that will allow dictation directly into DragonDictate for Mac.
Not working week on iOS 6
It's not working very well on iOS 6. If the screen turns off (IPhone auto locks) the app stops transmitting to the computer. I don't remember this being a problem on older versions of iOS. It reduced the usability of this app because I'm not going to change my auto lock preferences every time I want to use this app. Please fix.
Your desktop apps are so well designed that this is really disappointing.
Need an in app option to keep from auto locking and an update in screen dimensions. It's not 2011 anymore. Basically no one has the old 3.5" screen.
Fantastic desktop apps though!
