“Best ribs in Ann Arbor.” That’s what I just asked my iPhone — no, not Siri, but something else called Dragon Go!, a free natural language app made by Nuance Communications, the same company (it’s thought anyway) whose speech-crunching tech powers Apple’s belle of the voice recognition ball. Dragon Go! not only recognizes what I say as accurately as Siri, it knows right where to go, in this case popping open Yelp with a list of the top-rated nearby barbecue joints. “Say what you want and Dragon Go! will deliver your results within seconds,” goes the app-info sales pitch. And it’s been doing exactly that (since I reviewed it in July) reliably enough that I’ll keep using it in lieu of dropping a bundle on an iPhone 4S — until whatever’s next comes out.
