Get vokul - a powerful voice control app for your iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad!
With vokul, you can perform many useful tasks without pressing any buttons! Use vokul to:
+ Dictate text messages
+ Dictate emails
+ Post to Twitter and Facebook
+ DJ music, podcasts, audiobooks, and iTunes U lectures
+ Control the audio player with your voice
+ Call contacts in your address book
+ Listen to your Twitter and Facebook feeds
+ Get the current date and time
vokul is fast, accurate, and tuned for noisy environments, like your car!
Use simple voice commands to interact with vokul, even while audio is playing. You can skip backward and forward within a track, navigate between tracks, pause/resume playback, and speed up or slow down podcasts!
Launch vokul and connect your device to your car* stereo system for the ultimate handsfree audio experience!
“hey vokul ... (dings) ... text Andrew”
“hey vokul ... (dings) ... email Pat”
“hey vokul ... (dings) ... call Mom at home”
“hey vokul ... (dings) ... play sonata in F major”
“hey vokul ... (dings) ... play 80s”
“hey vokul ... (dings) ... update my Facebook status”
“hey vokul ... (dings) ... post to Twitter”
New in version 1.2, it's easier than ever to stay in touch safely while on the go. vokul now supports Bluetooth headsets and in-vehicle systems* - it's the safest way to send a message while driving!
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!
Examples (while audio is playing):
“vokul forward 30” : skips forward 30 seconds
“vokul back” : skips backward 15 seconds (configurable)
“vokul pause” : pauses playback
“vokul play podcasts” : starts playing podcasts; the most recent episode is played first
vokul works on iOS devices including the iPhone 3GS and later models, iPod touch 3G and later models (iPod touch 3G requires an external mic), and all iPad models. Supported freeform dictation languages include English and Spanish (Europa, Mexican, and U.S.).

* Bluetooth operation is great for messaging; A2DP mode for music playback is NOT supported, due to iOS limitations.
Note: vokul currently does not support reading received text messages, due to limitations imposed by iOS.
Note: Starting with iOS 6, you must press 'send' to send a text message or email. This is due to iOS restrictions.
What's New in Version 1.2.10
+ iOS 7 Bug Fixes (iPhone 5/5c/5s)
Works as advertised
The last reviewer's assertion that you have to be in the app for it to listen is untrue. All you have to do is change a setting for it to listen in the background. Then you can exit the app and a red bar will appear at the top of. Your screen indicating vokul is in listen mode. The app works pretty well and is a great solution for music listening while driving!
Perfect for running!
I don't write many reviews, but this app is soooo sweet! I literally use it every time I go running. Love being able to change tracks without touching my device. The accuracy is spot on and it's also super fast - makes running so much more enjoyable!
voice controlled podcasts!
Picked up this app the other day and am glad I did. I use vokul each morning to listen to podcasts on my commute to work. Can't believe it can hear my commands over the loud audio. One issue - it doesn't support Bluetooth A2DP, so I have to connect using a cable. Fix this and 5 stars!
