4 free apps Siri won’t tell you about

By now, you’ve heard the hype about Siri on the iPhone 4S. If you don’t have the latest iPhone model, don’t fret. A few voice-recognition apps on the market do practically the same thing, and some work with Android and BlackBerry devices.

Here are a few recommendations from GeekSugar.com:

1.  Turn your words into action with Vlingo.com. Speak to your phone to connect with people, update your Facebook or Twitter account, send text or email, or search the web.

Available on BlackBerry, iPhone, Android, and some models of Nokia and Windows Mobile devices.

2.  Tap your phone, then ask it for directions or a movie show time, using free app Dragon Go. Dictate a text or email message. It performs nearly the same as Siri.

Available on iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. Search for it in the App Store.

3.  Do a spoken-word search on Google for what you want —a nearby pizza spot, a contact’s phone number, the answer to a question, movie show times, or the weather forecast.

Get the right app by visiting m.google.com/search in your phone’s web browser. You’ll see the right version of Google Search show up.

Available on Android, BlackBerry, iPhone, Windows and some models of Nokia devices.

4.  And don’t forget, if you have an iPhone, you can use the voice search that’s already included on it. It’s not exactly Siri, but it does a good job of calling a contact or playing a song for you.
