    I want this so I can text while driving. It is incredibly dangerous texting on a touch screen while driving because as good as autocorrect is you still have to look most of the time.

    I just use the mic button on the keyboard for quick dictations, replies to text messages.

    Huh? I'm not sure what you're asking. I'm trying to find a way not to text while driving

    Siri is good at texting for you. But is there an app that will read your texts or emails to you?

    Get a hands-free setup and call them.

    I've been known to use Vlingo at stoplights to good effect.

    Is that any better than Siri?

    I don't use Siri so I couldn't tell you. It doesn't have deep hooks into iOS like Siri does, but it gives me pretty reliable results. I like it for sending quick texts and emails and finding the nearest whatever in maps.

    Just tell Siri to "Read last text/email." Works very well.

    Siri works. It reads your messages and replies. What else could you need?

    Best thing to honestly is jailbreak your phone and put Siri port on it works really well

    I didn't think Siri could read emails...
    I think the mic button works great for text/emails.

    We sold a bluetooth headset at Best Buy Mobile that came with an app that did all of this for you.
    I wanna say it was a blueant or a jawbone, or a motorola. One of those.

    Siri is very helpful in things like this if you own a 4s
