Microsoft Recite – voice notes on steroids

recite

Its nice to see Microsoft Research produce software for once for Windows Mobile before the iPhone. This time they solved the problem of voice notes for your Windows Mobile smartphone.

The main problem with voice notes has always been retrieval. If you label your notes you may as well have written them out, and don’t label them you will never be able to find what you recorded.

Microsoft Recite uses voice recognition to record, search and retrieve voice notes without navigating menus or tapping out text.  You just speak your mental note to store it. Later, when you need the information just search and retrieve the remembrance using your voice.

See the video below for the app in action. 

The software is available to download from Microsoft now.
