Microsoft Recite: Voice Notes for your Windows Mobile Phone

 

Looks like Microsoft is getting in on the early release action -- a day before Mobile World Congress 2009 even gets started, they've made the website for Microsoft Recite live.  Great, so what is it?  It's an intelligent voice note application.  You hit a button and speak your random note into it: "Get Milk," "George's favorite band is the Georgia Satellites," "Sara's anniversary is November 13th," etc.  Recite will store your notes for playback later.  How do you find them?  Just speak again "George's Band" -- and the software will use some fancy algorithms to locate your voice note and then play it back for you.

Unlike Jott (et al), there's no transcription or other method for getting your voice notes off the app if you so choose (which may cause you headaches).  Microsoft is also recommending you have an unlimited data plan, just in case.  Oh, and Bluetooth headsets need not apply.  It's a technology preview (read: Beta), but actually works much better than you might expect.  It's a neat little app and might come in handy for folks that prefer voice notes.  It's also free, which we're pretty sure is better than not-free.

You can download it here. You can follow the official Recite Blog here.  You can watch a neat little video about the entire thing after the break.

Update: Did we mention it was a "Technology Preview?"  We did?  Good.  Because the app is crashing intermittently on a Treo Pro. When it doesn't crash, it works quite well.  Here's one nice bit: since it works directly with the audio files, it doesn't matter if you speak in English, French, or even Esperanto.
