NCH iPhone and Android Update
The Express Dictate iPhone App is here

Update: Express Dictate for Android is now available. You can Get Express Dictate for Android from Google Play or Amazon


Pocket Dictate iPhone Dictation SoftwareThat's right, I am finally making good on my promises of NCH iPhone applications. (July 2009: NCH Starting development for iPhone)

Pocket Dictate has been approved by Apple and is officially available and free to download through iTunes for your iPhone, making our range of digital dictation software nearly complete. You can use any of the applications in our dictation suite to record your dictations almost anyway you choose:

Express Dictate for your Mac or PC for easy computer dictation. You can also use Express Dictate with a portable dictation device, and simply dock and send your dictation files when you are back at your desk.

Pocket Dictate is the mobile version of Express Dictate which can be downloaded for your Pocket PC, Windows Mobile or Palm OS devices--and now your iPhone as well. A Droid version is currently under development, which will round out all your portable devices.

Web Dictate lets you set up a web dictation server so you can log in and record dictation files anywhere with a microphone and an internet connection.

With Dial Dictate, you can set up a phone-in dictation system, so that you can have a dedicated phone number to call whenever you need to make a dictation.

With all of these different choices you would be hard pressed to not find a solution that will work well for you.

So what's next for NCH apps?
As I mentioned, Pocket Dictate for Droid is on its way. We are also planning on porting PitchPerfect Instrument Tuner, WavePad Audio Editor, RecordPad Sound Recorder, and TempoPerfect Metronome Software for both the iPhone and Android. Those will keep us busy for a little while longer, but I'm sure there will be even more to add to the list after that, so if there are any of our products that you are dying to have on your phone, or if you have any feedback on Pocket Dictate be sure to let us know.

  2. Currently the plan is to roll out a few more things for the iPhone first so it isn't on the immediate horizon, but the android version is in the "master plan" as it were, and I will post an update when I have a better idea of a working timeline.

  5. Unfortunately no update on Android yet. We are about to release WavePad for the iPhone, and I am hopeful that we can put someone on Droid once that is out, but I don't have a definite timeline.

  6. Great thoughts you got there, believe I may possibly try just some of it throughout my daily life.

  10. I am concerned that you are ignoring the android market. I use your dicatation softwware in my entier office,and I am happy with it, but I am concerned that you are negelecitn the new #1 smartphone for business market! Android phones are rapidly taking over the market for smart phones and have already surpassed the i-phone in this market worldwide. So why are you wasting your time with all this other crap for the i-phone.

    Make an android dictation app now! I have never seen a company that admitted that it was ignoring the bulk of the market before.

    I may need to look for a new system for my office that will include an android compatible mobile dictation solution. It is a shame because your desktop version is great.

  12. Still waiting for android here!
    I've got an important user cursing his winmo phone but he's unable to move to an HTC Desire until this is sorted out. All my other ditctation users have ditched NCH because they'd rather have the modern phone.

  13. Does anyone from NCH monitor this blog? Obviously from the comments people have posted over the past year, folks are clamoring for an android version of your software. Could you simply provide a timeframe when this app will be available? Your continued silence speaks volumes about your lack of customer focus.

  14. For those looking for an app that runs on Android and uploads to an FTP server, you might look at Dictamus.

  15. Unfortunately there is still no timeline for any Android applications. That project has been put on hold for at least for the time being because there has been some doubts expressed as to whether or not we would be able to make up for the development costs based on the smaller size of the niche market and low to no cost expectations that have been set for mobile applications. When there is any additional developments or decisions made I will be sure to pass on that information.

  16. VERY VERY disappointed (as clearly are many others here) that you have ignored the Droid market. I have been using your transcription software for some time and love it, but have several clients who are wanting to dictate on their Droids and have been going elsewhere with their business. I may need to look at another program.

  17. I have to agree with being disappointed with the lack of an Android app. We own and operate a transcription business and would love to be able to use this for our providers/dictators that have Android devices. Referring to it as a "niche" market seems like an uneducated and unwarranted remark.

  18. I too wish you would create a droid app. I have happily bought four other dictation apps but would rather have one work seamlessly with our express dictate and transcription software. Droids are selling at nearly 2 to 1 to Iphones. Hardly a niche market.

  19. LOL Niche market. They are just not smart enough to develop for android. They even admit it! "...there has been some doubts expressed as to whether or not we would be able to make up for the development costs based on the smaller size of the niche market..."

  20. We desperately need Android (ICS) version APPS mine is Samsung Galaxys S3.

  21. I work for a very large organisation and we're having to download android dictation apps that will work with Express Scribe. None of these are ideal and would be willing to pay more for an android app that mirrors Pocket Dictate - there is definitely a market out here in the real world :-)

  22. We are also waiting for the android app...

  23. Android dictation app please.

    We've used Express Dictate/Scribe since 2006. We're forced to upgrade our dictation software and hardware as part of a Windows 7 upgrade. No Android app will probably mean a move away from NCH.

  24. Jennifer, your post of 16 February 2011 misses the point. The test is not "Can we sell enough Droid apps to cover the cost of development". The test is "Will a Droid app give us competitive advantage/equality sufficient to sell enough Express Delegate\Dictate\Scribe\Droid software to cover the development costs".
