Highlighting another item that was revealed during the WWDC 2009 Keynote, iPhone users will be getting Voice Control. I am thinking this will be one of those features that people either really love or could just care less about. Personally, I am falling into the really love category.
Up to this point I have been using the Dialer app from Melodis for my dialing needs, and while it works wonderful I have been wanting a little more overall control. Enter Voice Control which will allow you to make calls with your voice. Users will be able to search (and make a call) from your contact list by name as well as saying the number. Voice Control will also repeat your commands so you have confirmation that you are calling the correct person.
So far Voice Control sounds good, but getting to that more control. The Voice Control functionality will also allow you to control your music. You will be able to do things such as ask what song is playing as well play a specific song or specific album. You can even raise or lower the volume, pick a playlist or shuffle all of your music.
