Dictating memos and other business correspondence may seem old-fashioned – but it’s not the dictation that’s old-fashioned; it’s having some poor drudge from the steno pool type it out. The Dragon Dictation app from Nuance Communications takes care of that, turning your spoken words into written e-mails, texts, tweets, memos and more.

Powered by the Dragon Naturally Speaking solution from voice-recognition pioneers Dragon, the app is particularly good with creating voice-to-text transcriptions for texts and e-mails, and for submitting text to social networking applications like Twitter and Facebook. It also includes an editing feature that provides a list of suggested words, and a voice-driven correction interface.
