Renowned publisher, Publications International today introduces iCookbook 1.0, its first digital cookbook for the iPad. Beautifully designed to be the premiere cooking application for everyday cooks, iCookbook is the first in its class to implement hands-free Voice Command, allowing its users to speak simple instructions, which allows for hands-free use of the iPad while they whip up one of the thousands of home-style recipes available on the app.
Power App today introduces Speech2SMS 1.0 for iOS, their app that allows users to create and send SMS messages by speaking into their iOS device. Following a brief period of calibration, during which it accounts for ambient noise levels, the app is ready to take dictation. It employs the OpenEars open-source iOS library for English language speech recognition. Designed for no-hands text input when use of the virtual keyboard is inconvenient or impossible, users must speak slowly and clearly.
