I know this is common knowledge to everybody else, but I just discovered a feature on my phone. my keyboard has a microphone. I'm not typing, I'm talking. It's really cool. On the other hand, it's also a pain in the rear. It capitalizes words I don't want capitalized, and doesn't capitalize words I want capitalized. I also have to pull up the keyboard to add punctuation, which means I have to stop talking. So while I think this feature is really neat, I don't know how often I will use it. It is pretty nifty, though.

I am an iPhone user. There are many features I do not use.

I discovered it some time ago, but absolutely had a difficult time using it so I ignored it... I'd like to hear from people who find it a helpful and effective feature...

I'll probably use it sporadically at best. Like you said, it's kind of a hassle. Neat, though.

It's cool, but I don't see myself using it much, maybe on texts or something.

It is just not practical for a MyLot Discussion, at least not the length I usually write.

@teamfreak16 Yes! You're correct. Are you using the feature for texting make?

@infatuatedbby - That's about what I plan on using it for. Can't think of anything else.

It's not really good for doing a decent-sized Discussion, but I think I'll use it for texts and smaller things like that.

My wife is using it to make grocery lists and to search for locations of things. It is a good feature with limitations. I only know about it because she told me.

I could see it would be useful for that. Itdoesn't seem to be compatible with a discussion, though.

@JamesHxstatic - I used it on a music post I just did. Just made it harder. So lengthy stuff is out. But I can see instances where it would be useful.

Sounds like a bit of a waste of time to me if you've got to add things afterwards.

Yeah, it does seem to have it's uses, but it's not conducive to lengthy discussions.

I've never used it myself, but I have a friend who uses this feature a lot. He has a reading disability and typing is a nightmare for him, let alone he is a big guy with big fingers that it's hard for him to use a dinky phone keyboard.
