    I've noticed VoiceDialer has been removed, during my morning Sync. Anyone else missing apps? :confused:

    Oh yeah, that one is gone as well. All I know is that I lost (4) apps this morning during my Sync and the only one that I caught was my VoiceDialer. :(

    I'm wondering if they are doing "after-the-fact" screening and deletions? :p

    Was that the one that proclaimed itself as free during the beta period? Maybe the publisher removed it from the App Store to get ready for the non-free version

    ^^^ I agree Phil, but it wasn't really that good. I would voice my contact and sometimes I would get a contact with the same last name and other times I would get one out of the blue. So, I'm really confused at this point. And yes, when I did the Sync, iTunes announced that I had lost (4) apps, but I thought it was the usual prompt about such, and such a song or music video wasn't able to be Sncyed AGAIN.:(

    no, the free one was speech cloud or whatever. I wasnt a fan of that one.. and read HORRIBLE reviews on all of the others too.. i'm waiting a few months before i buy one to see if any bugs get fixed.. and different company, ifonix or something is coming out with one too, and they have done PDA voice dialers before.

    I just dont get it.. if shazam can listed to less than a minute of a song and pick out the name and album out of MILLIONS of different songs, WHY cant an app listen to my voice and pick out a name out of my 50 contacts.

    I've invested in One Voice (onev.com), but I haven't seen anything from them that is compatible with my 3G iPhone.:(

    I have the one from speech cloud I think. It lists itself as "voice dialer" in the home page. I don't use it because I don't need voice dial, but I did try it after I got it, and it got 9/10 different contacts I tried - not too bad. They had released an update that I think helped it.

    I wish the reviews had a way of reflecting updates better. Cuz if a program sucks first go 'round, everyone gives it terrible reviews, then they could make it perfect and the reviews are useless.

    I agree, I wish it did like Betanews.com and added the version number to the comments.
