Who has time for tapping? The Dragon Dictation app turns a smartphone into a personal assistant by allowing users to dictate emails, text messages and status updates for Twitter and Facebook, as well as record voice reminders and more. While voice apps aren't new, Dragon Dictation is one of the best and translates your voice with impressive accuracy. The developer also claims that speaking and seeing your words transcribed on the screen is five times faster than typing it out on your smartphone (which seems true after using the app for a short amount of time). Don't speak English? Don't worry. The app currently supports six major languages.
