Dragon Dictation

Not all of us have Siri standing by to type up our text messages and emails (and sass us in the process). Thankfully, we have Dragon Dictation. The app does a remarkable job of understanding what you say (if you aren't in a loud environment) and accurately transcribing it into text. From there, you can send the text as an email, copy and paste it into a document, or post it on Facebook or Twitter. You can give it some formatting commands as well.

For that, the Siri-less need Vlingo.
