"Outstanding Program! Works Great!"

August 02, 2009  |  By phettinger

 |  Version: TellMe for BlackBerry 1

Pros

It is easy to use and works great on my phone with no problems. I have problems with my GPS not always working when their is no sun, but I can always find what I need and get there with this program. Best of all, its free!

Cons

None that I have found!

Summary

I recommend this program for anyone who gets out and about and wants something that will assist them in wanting what they are looking for when they need it.

"Disabled microphone on phone and headset on 8110 Pearl"

December 21, 2008  |  By pspower

 |  Version: TellMe for BlackBerry 1

Pros

Simpler to use than the GPS on the phone and more options.

Cons

Caused the microphone to stop working on outgoing calls. I could hear, but they could not hear me, even with the bluetooth headset enabled.

Summary

I had to uninstall it. It doesn't work with this Blackberry.

"Works great and saves time!"

December 20, 2008  |  By danisnotstan

 |  Version: TellMe for BlackBerry 1

Pros

If its FREE, its for me! Accurate voice search.

Cons

Doesn't integrate with Sprint Navigation

Summary

Man, am I impressed! I considered getting the Samsung Instinct even though I knew the Blackberry was a far superior device. The only reason It was even a consideration was the fact that the Instinct came with the voice activated Microsoft Live Search which I thought was an awesome feature. I made the right decision on which phone to get but have still been a bit jealous when reminded of the Instincts "cool feature" that I didn't get! Now I get the one thing I was missing and it came FREE no less! I downloaded the app over the air on my Sprint Curve 8330 @ m.tellme.com. Installation was simple and fast. Oddly enough, I didn't even have to restart my device! I'm from NJ and have been told I have an accent...I have a cold right now which makes it even harder to understand my voice yet I only had maybe 2 wrong searches out of 20 or so tries! Works pretty fast as well! Way faster than opening my Opera browser and selecting a book mark (forget about typing). Once results are displayed (only takes a few seconds) it gives options to call the business, show on a map, get directions and then there is something called share (not sure what this is for...maybe email to a friend?) There was only one inaccurate search out of my first several tries. I searched "Costco" and for some reason was given a list of Mexican restaurants... odd. It even spelled out "Costco" on the results pages so I knew it didn't misunderstand my request. I tried a second time and it gave accurate results. Tell Me is now owned by Microsoft and it seems as though the "Live Search" results are updated regularly. It can be a few months behind but this had better results than my current model Magellan 1412 GPS for the car! The only thing that I didn't like was when the app gave "directions" it didn't give the option to open Sprint Navigation for real turn by turn spoken directions, instead I was only given written turn by turn instructions similar to what Google Maps would display. This isn't horrible and too be honest, it makes it easier at times when I know how to get to a business after the app refreshes my memory. I just wish I had the option to use my Blackberry's full potential if I chose. I would even be satisfied with the option to just copy and paste the address and manually use Sprint Navigation but it doesn't give the option to select the text. This app also opens and displays results faster than Blackberry Maps or Telenav. Another cool feature is searching for movies...I don't go very often but I have tried searching for movie times and locations on a regular phone browser in the past (not Blackberry) and was left frustrated after several minutes of useless page loads and selections. This app cant make it any easier! Say "movies" it gives a list of all movies playing (and apparently soon to be released as well), select the movie you are interested in and it displays every theater location and showing time in a list! You look like a super hero instead of some idiot mashing buttons on the cell phone while your friends wait anxiously. Overall, I am very pleased and I highly recommend this app and wish I downloaded it sooner. My Fiance normally tells me to go away and to leave her alone when showing her cool technology, (I cant be the only guy with this problem!) this time she was jealous! A few minor gripes still deserves a 5 star rating in my book!

"Very cool"

April 28, 2008  |  By catbait1

 |  Version: TellMe for BlackBerry 1

Pros

Set up and worked flawlessly on my BB 8800. Did not require voice recognition software or anything. I hope this stays as a free ap!

Cons

Can be a little picky on words, for instance playground vs park will return two entirely different results. But both were recognized which is a definite plus in my book. Just remember that you may need to try other terms.
