    With all the voice enabled apps in the app store, I was wondering if something exists that does voice to text. So you speak into the phone and it translates to plain text that can be used in SMS, Mail or Notes apps.

    Anyone know of anything like this?

    Voice recognition really isn't up to that yet.. I'm sure it's possible to write an app but be prepared for some hillarious/embarrassing results!

    Jott can do voice to text but you can't use it in Mail or anything obviously.

    Since apples policy doesnt allow 2 apps to co-exist, it would be impossible to do what u want.

    As another user posted, Jott can do it, apparently but theres no way to get the text to mail/sms/whatever.
