    WTF:confused:

    That's just creepy. When are they going to have a mindreading app. I want to be able to play games without my hands.

    That isn't it.
    I don't see why people would think Google would get special treatment in the review process. They have to wait just like everyone else. Apple also likes to wait until Tuesdays so they can feature apps so that could be part of the hold up.

    It works, they just haven't updated the info in iTunes yet.

    It really weird. It works a little too well. You can use it for maps too.

    I have a slight Midwest accent and it has a hard time understanding me a little. In the first thing I asked it I said "what's the" (like thee) and it thought I said "woodsy.":rolleyes:
    I think my phone's making fun of me.

    help

    How do I use it for maps and does that mean it automatically links you to google maps?

    Its under settings I think, I'll look later. Somewhere there is an option for what you want it to search.

    Does anyone know how to get it to look through your contacts? I have it selected for contacts, but when I say a name in my contacts it doesn't give it to me.

    I'm in the maps part of settings, but that's really just normal google maps without any voice recognition. Unless I'm doing something wrong?

    Yeah, contacts isn't helpful either

    lol, I can imagine. I actually seems set for a Californian accent. I'm from the Midwest and mixes up what i say a lot and my accent is slight.


    @everone asking about how to search in contacts and maps:
    just tap the magnifying glass in the left of the search entry box(where you would type) you can pick internet, maps, etc.
