ShoutOUT, a successful app on the iPhone that lets users speak into their phone to transcribe text messages, is now available in the Android Market.

Promptu Systems, the company that developed the app, says, "No other Android speech recognition app used for text messaging – including Google Voice functionality in Android 2.1 – comes close to the accuracy of ShoutOUT."

It will also be the first full-access hands-free texting app on the iPhone. That is to say that it also allows for navigation and creation of the texting interface completely through voice commands.

Promptu specifically mentions that the app is available for Motorola's Droid, so functionality may be off if it's downloaded to other Android devices.

As the company puts it, "By using voice as the interface, ShoutOUT is the most intuitive and natural alternative to the awkward process of entering text on a mobile phone."

Now if only someone would release an app that lets you talk into your phone and let someone else hear you at the same time...maybe even have a two-way vocal conversation. Eh, I guess I'm just dreaming; who knows when something like that will happen?
