Air Dictate: Type On Your Mac Using Siri

Like Siri on your iPhone 4S? You’ll like it even more on your Mac.  With Air Dictate, you can enter text on your computer by talking into your iPhone 4S. It’s that simple.

There are no public APIs for using the Siri voice-activated assistant for dictation, so developer Avatron found a way to control Siri and convert speech into text. The text then transfers to the corresponding Mac (with OS X 10.6.8 or higher) running the Air Dictate Receiver app.

This means you can turn your phone into a speech recognition microphone and input text into Mail, Word, Pages, and whatever other app loves text.

Air Dictate is available for $0.99 in the app store
