ShoutOUT is a messaging application for text messages (SMSs), and Facebook and Twitter updates. It allows typed messages to be entered for free, messages using speech-to-text are charged for via in-app purchases beginning at 50 voice credits for US$1.99.
I couldn't test this app because it only works for USA customers who already have a USA mobile phone number, but it seems to have some good reviews from users.
ShoutOUT allows you to send and receive messages, with full texting capabilities including:
- Inbox and outbox
- Discussions threaded by recipient
- Status updates on Facebook and Twitter
- Push notification of incoming messages
- Thumbnail images for all your contacts
ShoutOUT is a full-featured messaging app with voice dictation. Speak your text messages or Facebook and Twitter updates and see the results in seconds—there's no faster way to create and send messages.
ShoutOUT allows you to send and receive text messages at a cost far lower than the standard rates charged by mobile operators. For outbound messages, keyboard entered messages are free and unlimited, and you pay only pennies per message for voice-generated texts. All inbound messages are free and unlimited.
