Default SayWho - a great new app for iPhone

A new app on the block enables you to click and hold the screen and speak a contact name into your iPhone - the speech recognition then goes to your contacts list and dials for you. Its impressive - even works with a Northern UK accent through a headcold...

If its nort sure it starts to dial what it thinks is the most likely but gives you options to click to change the target number..

You can also say numbers to dial but at present it seems to be confused by the UK pattern of NNNNN NNNNNN and makes several US style suggestions

looks like an improvement over the Google Mobile App It allows you to search via voice input (though strangely not your contacts so you can't use it for hands free dialling). It also has the following disclaimer:
Note that Voice Search works only in English, and works best with North American English accents.
