Google today released a new version of its voice search application for the iOS platform. The new tool lets iOS device users speak natural language queries such as questions about flight schedules, movie times, and unit conversions. The queries are sent to Google's servers, translated from speech to text, and then returned to the iOS device with the results. Results are displayed on the screen as well as spoken aloud by the application. Google said it is able to generate the results very quickly and thoroughly thanks to its Knowledge Graph. Voice search for iOS is a free download from the iPhone App Store. It is compatible with the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad.

Regarding iPhone 5 and Siri and Talkler

Even with iOS6, and the new iPhone 5, Siri still won¹t do email for me. We need true email inbox management that¹s eyes-free. There¹s a smartphone app called Talkler, billed as email for your ears. It's about voice-controlled email that gets read aloud. talkler.com ¬ worth checking out.

Ouch!!

Its funny because Google searches voice/text have also been Google strength. If Google can deliver fast and accurate information over cellular, Apple's Siri will not be top dog on iOS.
