Nuance Dragon Mobile Assistant

Nuance has announced a handful of new features to their Dragon Mobile Assistant app, which launched just last fall. In addition to the usual stuff, like updating Facebook and Twitter, finding businesses, booking calendar appointments, and getting directions, Dragon Mobile Assistant can now share GPS coordinates with trusted contacts.

It can also read incoming text messages out loud and answer them without pressing a button. Finally, Dragon Mobile Assistant now politely reminds you when you have a conference call coming up and offers to dial you in. The downside is that the app is still only rolled out in a limited geography - sorry, Canadians. 

It's still tough competing with Google Now, but these new features certainly help Dragon Mobile Assistant stick out. Which features would you need from a third-party voice app to replace Google Now? How often do you use Android's built-in hands-free functions?
