Nuance’s Mobile Developer Program has signed over 2500 developers in the first 90 days.

The program has launched various voice-enabled applications worldwide for iOS and Android, such as iTranslate from Sonico, AirYell from Avantar, and Taskmind from Catalyst.


The company’s Mobile Developer Program gives developers access to Dragon Mobile Software Development Kit (SDK) that delivers Dragon speech recognition technology. This enables developers to voice-enable their apps.

The iTranslate app from Sonico uses voice recognition to allow users to speak words or phrases into the iPhone to have them translated to another language. iTranslate can translate to English, French, German, Dutch, Spanish, Italian, Polish, and Russian.

Avantar’s AirYell app for iPhone and iPad allows consumers to use their voice to search for services, businesses and people near them. The app can recognize the location of the users and delivers results based on it. Users can tap on the map for driving directions, or tap on the number to call.

Taskmind from Catalyst enables users to speak notes into iPhone which are then transcribed and stored in a central online task tool. This allows consumers to reference and share their notes.

“AirYell is a free iPhone and iPad application that brings the power of the local search right to your mobile device, in an easy-to-use and intuitive way. It gives consumers access to hyper-local, and GPS-enabled business information right at their fingertips.  And, with the new voice recognition feature powered by Dragon, we’re now able to make the iPhone experience even faster and easier, allowing consumers to simply speak anything from a business name to a category, and even a city or state, and instantly see results. Once you use it, you wonder how you ever got along without it,” said Michael Taylor Alvarez, CEO, Avantar.
