A few readers let us know that RIM has made the next app available as part of their free apps gift in response to their previous outage last month. They have made the popular voice command app Vlingo free for a limited time which is a huge boon considering its $19.99 price tag. It essentially expands the BlackBerry voice commands to be able to control many different parts of the device by saying things like:
- "Text John; What’s up?"
- "find Italian restaurants"
- "update Facebook; I’m on a boat!"
