How can I get a complete list of all IPhone apps that will allow me to send emails by speaking into a Bluetooth device paired with my IPhone 4?

I have the original IPhone 4 (not the IPhone 4s).

I’m looking to purchase an app that will allow me to send emails by speaking into a Bluetooth device paired with my IPhone 4

I have looked on the IPhone app store within ITunes using the search term “speech to email” and have gotten the results displayed in the screenshot below.

What other apps are available besides the ones that are shown in the screenshot?

Or what would be a better search term to use within the ITunes IPhone app store (or in a regular Google search query) that will display ALL of the available apps compatible with an IPhone  4 that will automatically read all of my company’s Exchange server emails that my IPhone 4 receives?

I always like to take a look at every app that is available and to read a thorough description of it before I purchase or install it on my IPhone.

The problem I am having currently is that I’m not sure exactly which search term to enter within the ITunes app store or within Google to get a complete list of all of these apps.

PLEASE NOTE: The question that I am asking in this question is different than the one I asked in the previous posting. I have posted two separate questions since I have found that there are different apps that will do the two different things I am trying to do. Just because some apps might be able to both read incoming emails to me and allow me to respond to these emails by speaking into my Bluetooth device doesn’t necessarily mean that these apps that can “do it all” will be the best app for me to use. I would like to be able to find out how to get a complete list of all available apps for both of these questions so that I can read about them and then choose the right ones to purchase and try.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Only the same thing I posted in your other question which is basically what mccrick posted:  Google around until you find one that will meet your needs.

This is huge yet shrinking market. Siri has really put the breaks on developing for this need. If you install Dragon Go it will allow you dictate what you want an email to say then export the text to you just spoke to the mail app. This has been the most reliable app for speech to text I have found.

@J2, Does Dragon work locally in the iPhone, or does it send the data off for processing like Siri. I was in love with Siri, like a million other dorks, but she has let me down a few times and the lag can be a bit excessive. The integration is amazing though. No exporting, blah blah blah. It seems like it would be much better if there were a local cache of regularly used commands, such as "call home" that didn't need to go off to a server for 20 seconds for processing. That's just stoopid.

Are you using an iPhone 4s? If so Siri is the best option available in this new market of personal assistants. Dragon does not do commands to the phone. It is only a speech to text application.

Yes, I have the 4s. The question I was asking is whether Dragon processes anything locally? This is relevant to the original question in that Siri can take a lot of time for offsite processing and therefore leaves room for improvement for those wanting to dictate (longer) email messages (faster).

Yes Dragon is local I appologize for the confusion. It is an instant Speech to text dictation application. It is free and I would suggest getting it from the app store to try it out. The one draw back I do not like about it is how you have to speak in commands at the same time as your content for your message. ie. If you want to say; "I went to the store yesterday. There wasn't any fresh lettuce." You have to say; "I went to the store yesterday period there wasn't any fresh lettuce" then select to export it to an email.

I see, so because it's a separate app, you can't use it from within the Mail program or anywhere else. Hence always having to export.

So it sounds like the solution, (beyond having a complete list of speech to text email apps) may be to use Siri within Mail for short emails. And launch Dragon to compose longer emails and export to Mail.

... Unless there is a better answer? Anyone?
