Voice to text is far from new technology. The ability to speak into your phone and tell it to call a specific person has been around for quite sometime. Unfortunately, that’s really been about all you could do till now. With recent improvements to everyone’s favorite iDevice, we found ourselves able to launch/control other features of the phone but even that was just a marginal improvement. Taking the next step in voice-to-text evolution, vlingo corporation offer more than just s sonorous name in their latest update of Vlingo, they offer email and SMS paste, too! Feel free to discuss this review of Vlingo in our forums.
While there are plenty of fully featured and very solid Todo and Task Management apps for your iPhone (Pocket Informant, Appigo’s Todo, To-Do List Pro, there are currently none in the market that makes use of OpenFeint to help motivate users to “get things done”. Thanks to Runloop however, Dunnit! becomes the first non game/entertainment app to integrate the social gaming platform into the app.
Runloop believes that adding collectible achievements to a To Do list app will provide increased incentive for users to remain productive. Integrating OpenFeint allows users to compete against their friends and colleagues. Points are earned by simply using the app to get things done.
Aside from the aforementioned feature, Dunnit! looks to be a simple and well designed todo app that includes Twitter integration (tweet your completed tasks/achievements to boast just how productive your are), tagging, repeating tasks, multiple task entry and more. Personally, I’m not entirely sure just how many folks will find the need for OpenFeint in a GTD app, but regardless, kudos to Runloop for bringing something new to the table and one that could very well catch on with other non-game developers. More info and video after the gap!

While most of us are still in awe of iWorks being showcased on an iPad at the recent Apple Event, many forget that there are solid and almost fully-functional office suites for the iPhone as well. My personal favourite – Quickoffice (TMA Review)- just got updated to version 3.0 with a short but significant list of new features.
- Access your Google Docs, Box.net, Dropbox, & MobileMe accounts!
- General enhancements.
I’ve seen quite a few moans out there that there is no way to utilize the power of Google Docs on the iPhone. Well, now you can! You can access all of the files there just like you could with the MobileMe account as well. Quickoffice will download them to the iPhone to make any changes and then upload them back after they are complete. The Box.net integration is also a nice touch, since it is a medium used by some other productivity suites, like iThoughts (mindmapping) – TMA Review.
Quickoffice, Inc., Quickoffice Connect Mobile Suite – $9.99

With the New Year well underway, lots of people are working hard to stick to those resolutions that we make every year that aim to better ourselves and/or our personal situations. For me personally it is all about organisation and with my hands all over Concrete Software’s organizational app To-Do List Pro, my New Year’s resolution might just stick.
Remembering your passwords is probably one of the biggest pains in the you-know-what when it comes to surfing the net. With more and more sites require you to register to gain access you almost need a little helper standing at the ready. I’ve tried many password reminders in the past for pc/mac/idevice and have often found them wanting. Luckily, VenticentoStudio’s handy iAccounts password manager has come to my rescue. It is a password manager that can handle just about anything you throw at it – just don’t literally throw things at your device, okay?
Some users may have missed it, but with MS Office 2007 and later, a clever little program called Microsoft OneNote piggybacks on the office suite. It’s an advanced and extensive notebook software that allows you to easily keep all of your notes in one place. And the best thing is that unlike the notes section built-in to Outlook, it can handle formatted text, images, links, etc. You can easily make different notebooks, password protect them, categorise them and more. Why am I writing all of this? Well, now you can get all of that information on your iPhone! Almost at least… Introducing – MobileNoter…
