Since Apple unveiled Siri, everyone has jumped on the "virtual assistant" bandwagon. Take a solid set of voice actions, give it a cutesy name and claim it has some personality, and you have the next big thing. Vlingo has been at this game a while, since way back when Siri was just a gleam in some programmer's eye. Today, they show us that they can not only make a great cross-platform application, but they have one hell of a sense of humor.

This is how you should market every app -- with Grandma's who cheat at bingo and puppets who want to get "crunk" and forget each others names. Just watch it, you'll be glad you did. The download link is after the break if you haven't tried Vlingo yet.

Unfortunately, it works like shit, at least on my Epic Touch 4G...

mflava#AC says:

Completely agree, thought I was the only one that felt this way about the one on the Epic Touch. Trying to find a way to delete the crap.

I'll wait for Majel.

Google should drop the name Majel
Get a license to use the name and voice and imigery for K.I.T.T. (From Knight Rider for you youngins ;)
Toss away the microphone image in favor of the segmented 3 red vertical bars.
Call it a day.

Maybe even the option to use K.A.R.R.s green bars.

I do not think How good it is? But it gave me more uncomfortable

crazace says:

I used to use it all the time on my berry didnt worth a crap, On my EVO4G it works like a champ!

briankurtz79 says:

I agree. Kinda. I used to like it on my evo but after getting my sgs2 the baked in app is garbage.

lukic says:

Unfortunately it is not available for everyone. Can not be installed in my country for some reason.

"Vodka-flavored hard candy". I don't know about the app, but the commercial is awesome!

That. Was one the best ads. I've ever seen.

I used to use Vlingo but I've been using Jeannie for a while niw. I'll have to give Vlingo another try.

Niteperson says:

Vlingo is okay, but doesn't work well through the bluetooth in my Kia. Safereader doesn't work at all with bluetooth.
